  2. Educating and Raising Boys

    Modern education is failing our boys. Educating and raising boys challenges society’s war on boys and boyishness and encourages educators and parents to expand their understanding of the male brain to better support the boys in their lives. By examining the behaviour of boys from a neuroscientific standpoint and how the hardwiring in their brains influences the way they learn, author Michael Nagel challenges readers to reassess how we currently engage with boys physically, academically, emotionally and spiritually. Rather than expect boys to change, readers will learn how to best adapt their own behaviour to ensure they are allowing boys to flourish.

  3. Talent Development as a Framework for Gifted Education: Implications for Best Practices and Applications in Schools

    'Talent development' is a phrase often used in reference to the education of gifted children. Recently, it has been presented by researchers to refer to a specific approach to the delivery of gifted education services. Much of this discussion has been at the conceptual level, and there is a need for translation of the model into concrete practices and examples that enable educators to better serve gifted children within their schools and districts. This book addresses that need. The research behind the talent development framework is briefly reviewed, followed by practical implications for identification and program design within domains of talent.

  5. Workplace Stability: Creating Conditions that Lead to Retention, Productivity, and Engagement in Entry-Level Workers

    There is no question that increased worker stability boosts productivity, retention and morale, which leads to greater profitability - but it may yet be a challenge you need to address. Why would an employer want to increase the personal and professional stability of workers? And how exactly can business go about it? It starts with seeing things differently. Instability is another measure of diversity in your workforce. Low-wage workers can experience personal instability that leads to absenteeism, health problems and violations of workplace expectations, all of which decreases morale, attention to work and job performance. These simple, inexpensive solutions can help stabilise your employees' lives - and boost your profitability and competitive advantage.
