  1. Getting Ahead in the Workplace: Building Stability and Resources for a Better Life at Work and Home, Revised Edition

    For those who struggle to get by every day, actually getting ahead hasn’t been part of your story. Life is unstable and unpredictable. Getting and keeping a good job seems nearly impossible, yet doing so is key to turning your life around. But what if you were able to take control of your future? How would your story change? For employers, the instability of your workforce – especially among low-wage or part-time employees – is more than inconvenient: it’s expensive. But what if your policies and practices helped your people establish control and stability in their lives? How would that affect engagement and turnover – and your bottom line? Getting ahead in the workplace solves these challenges by helping under-resourced people build resources and gain control over their future stories.

  2. Cooperative Learning & French: Beginning to Intermediate

    French class has never been so engaging! Instead of listening to the teacher and doing independent paper and pencil practice, students interact with partners and teammates using Kagan structures.

All of this interaction in French translates into more functional communication and more learning. Students don’t just learn about French. They acquire French through meaningful use. The fifteen chapters cover: community, clothes, weather, school, food, professions, daily activities, geography, time, date, music, movies, sports, verbs and adjectives. Fully engage your French students tout de suite!

  11. Problems-First Learning: A Framework for Engaging Minds and Nurturing Thinkers in Grades 6–12

    The instructional pattern of ‘teaching as telling, learning as listening’ has remained a tradition for generations. However, the 21st century requires a different approach. Through author Ted McCain’s problems-first instructional method, educators present their curriculum to students as a problem to solve – rather than as content to listen to – and then equip students with transferable processing skills that will help them effectively address challenges in school and beyond. Filled with problems-first lesson examples and tips for elevating students’ thinking, Problems-first learning: A framework for engaging minds and nurturing thinkers in grades 6–12 provides step-by-step guidance for teachers to increase students’ engagement and development of real-world skills in their classrooms.
