- A comprehensive guidebook designed to help K-6 teachers structure the first six weeks of school and lay the groundwork for a productive year; includes daily plans for the first three weeks, detailed guidelines of building community, and a collection of games, activities, songs, read-alouds, and resources.
- Explores the inner life of teachers, arguing that the self-knowledge attained by teachers will serve their students and their scholarship; and examines the question of how a teacher's self-hood can become a legitimate topic in education and in public dialogues on educational reform. Includes an audio CD with a conversation with the author.
- In Most Likely to Succeed, bestselling author and education expert Tony Wagner and venture capitalist Ted Dintersmith call for a complete overhaul of the function and focus of American schools, sharing insights and stories from the front lines, including profiles of successful students, teachers, parents, and business leaders. Most Likely to Succeed presents a new vision of American education, one that puts wonder, creativity, and initiative at the very heart of the learning process and prepares students for today's economy. This book offers parents and educators a crucial guide to getting the best for their children and a road map for policymakers and opinion leaders.
