STORIES FROM SIX SCHOOLS
a book about multiple Intelligences (MI) theory that answers the
questions that all educational innovations must ultimately address
“What are the results on student achievement?”
How were those results achieved?”
Multiple Intelligences and Student Achievement describes six
schools that have used MI theory for five or more years.
Through case studies of two elementary, two middle-level, and two
high schools. Linda and Bruce Campbell illustrate why markedly different
schools – large and small, rich and poor, inner-city and suburban –
looked to MI when they wanted to boost student learning.
schools with long-term MI programs, achievement gains on state
assessments and standardized rests are impressive, in fact, the
disparity between white and minority students is reduced or eliminated.
Students at all three levels outperform their district, country,
and national peers in basic skills.
Such gains are possible even though the teachers do not teach to
the test. Instead they
believe that all students have strengths and as a result students come
to believe in themselves as well. Moreover, teachers have discovered that instruction through
multiple intelligences is so positive and engaging that students – all
students – can’t help but learn.
book provides educators who are new to MI theory with solid achievement
data and curricular formats to support inform, and inspire their work.
Those who have already worked with MI theory will find
encouragement to continue and suggestions for refining their efforts.

How Children Fail?
does this mass failure take place?
What really goes on in the classroom?
What are these children who fail doing?
What goes on in their heads?
Why don’t they make more use of their capacity?’
this absorbing study John Holt used his lifelong experience in education
to find an answer to these questions.
When it was first published in 1964, How Children Fail initiated
an international debate on educational reform.
The New York Review of Books put John Holt in a class with
Piaget, while Life magazine called him `the gentle voice of reason’.
This second edition includes a fresh look at how children
investigate the world and cope with `social promotion’, grades, tests
and the issue of authority. Established
as a classic in its field, How Children Fail has sold over a million
copies. Every teacher will
benefit from his insight.
Holt has done a good and necessary job.

HOW TO MAXIMIZE YOUR CHILD’S LEARNING
is a revolutionary book that offers parents hundreds of practical things
they can do to help influence, encourage, and – most of all –
maximize their child’s learning ability.
Whether you have a preschooler attending nursery school or a
teenager in high school, you can provide the aids and activities that
will enable your child to excel at almost any skill.
twenty years ago, Dr. Lauren Bradway discovered that all children have
specific learning styles – that is, they use one of three distinct
ways to pick up and remember information.
Some learn best through visual stimulation; some are most
sensitive to sound and language; and others absorb information through
touch and motion. Once Dr.
Bradway determines a child’s learning style, she can – through the
careful selection of toys, activities, and learning strategies –
reinforce those talents and traits with which a child was blessed at
birth while encouraging those skills that do not come as naturally.
The end result is a happier, more self-assured child whose
learning skills have been greatly enhanced.
you find in How to Maximize Your Child’s Learning Ability are the
basic concepts behind Dr. Bradway’s techniques, simple tests to
uncover your child’s learning style, and itemized lists of materials
and tactics that you can use to supercharge your child’s learning
skills – everything you need to get your child started on the road to
a more successful future.

Divasvapna is the
imaginary story of a teacher who rejects the orthodox culture of
education. He remains
enthusiastic towards children and continues to experiment while
consciously neglecting the traditions of teaching from prescribed
text-books. The theoretical
background of his experiments lies in Montessori, but his preparation
and implementation are thoroughly local.
As a reader of
Divasvapna one is blown off in a gust of joy and curiosity, leaving
behind the sadness borne out of one’s knowledge of India’s
colourless, dust-wrapped primary schools.
One starts to paint the picture of a future in which the talent
imprisoned in the nation’s schools will break forth and children will
enjoy the pleasure of taking stock of the world around the classroom
with their teacher.
This engaging series of childhood recollections tells
about an ideal school in Tokyo during World War II that combined

freedom of expression and activity.
In real life, the Toto Chan of the book has become one

She attributes her success in life to this wonderful school and its headmaster.
The charm of this account has won the hearts of millions
of people of all ages and made this book a runaway best seller in
Japan, with sales hitting the 4.5 million mark in its first year.
Maria Montessori - The Secret of Childhood
The child has a spontaneous urge to learn. An
understanding of this simple secret led to the development of what we
know as Montessori education. In THE SECRET OF CHILDHOOD, Maria
Montessori describes the child with warmth and with the exactness of the
scientist. She also discusses the array of materials and techniques
needed to release his learning potential.
The Blackboard Book-by Eleanor Watts
The blackboard is an important and often the only visual aid that
many schools use. The Blackboard Book presents some of the infinite ways
in which the blackboard can be used to liven up the teaching of
language as well as history, geography, science and mathematics.
This book not only aims to develop skills of writing and drawing
people, common objects and situations but also the skill of devising
exercises which serve to teach-highlight-practices concepts. In this
unique, user-friendly book, Eleanor Watts shows how the blackboard can
reflect the real world with depth, imagination and humour.
