  1. Metacognition: The Neglected Skill Set for Empowering Students, Revised Edition

    How do we prepare our students for the test of life? We give them the gift of self-reflection, self-awareness, self-initiative, self-direction, self-assessment and self-regulation - the gift of knowing when they know, and when they don't know. Metacognition: The Neglected Skill Set for Empowering Students, is written with the teacher in mind. It is more practical than theoretical, but most definitely grounded in research findings and connected to emergent data. With the 30 ready-to-use metacognitive strategies in this book, teachers will deepen learning for their students through explicit reflections on planning, monitoring and evaluating their own work. As students learn how to think about their own thinking, they become more aware and better able to make adjustments on their own work.

  7. The Young Artist as Scientist: What Can Leonardo Teach Us?

    This is the first in-depth look at the important connections between the arts and science specifically for early childhood education (Preschool-Year 3).
