Wayside Teaching Connecting with Students to Support Learning


Sara Davis Powell, "Wayside Teaching: Connecting with Students to Support Learning"
English | ISBN: 1634507282 | 2018 | 200 pages | EPUB | 2 MB
Wayside teaching is about intentionally practicing what educators do every day in perhaps unintentional ways: relate to students. This practical, research-based guide illustrates how wayside teaching-the informal curriculum, implicit instruction, and mentoring that happens in sometimes unintentional ways-can be intentionally practiced across grade levels to enhance learning and boost student outcomes. Through a framework focused on attitudes, approaches, and actions, and using vignettes that illuminate wayside teaching in action, Sara Davis Powell demonstrates how reaching out to students in formal and informal situations helps create a culture of belonging and safety that strengthens a student’s self-image, confidence, resiliency, and cognitive processes. Offering invaluable resources, including student surveys for learning more about your students and an annotated booklist for promoting acceptance and compassion,

Support in Times of No Support A Social Psychological Search for Traces


Support in Times of No Support: A Social Psychological Search for Traces
English | 2023 | ISBN: 3658386363 | 414 Pages | PDF EPUB (True) | 12 MB
In the summer of 2018, the authors of the book stood in the Musée des Arts et Métiers in Paris. They marvelled at the Foucault pendulum, which made its circular movements on a long rope under the dome. Like Casaubon in Umberto Eco’s book The Foucault Pendulum, the authors were amazed and wondered what could be at the ideal end of the thread pendulum. The fixed point that could give us support and security in an uncertain world and difficult times? What uncertainties, what times or even what threats are we actually talking about? Where can we find the fixed points, the safe spaces of our lives? This book deals with these and other questions. The authors found inspiration for the book in Umberto Eco. And so it is also a homage to Eco.

Israel’s Moment International Support for and Opposition to Establishing the Jewish State, 1945-1949


Jeffrey Herf, "Israel’s Moment: International Support for and Opposition to Establishing the Jewish State, 1945-1949"
English | ISBN: 1316517969 | 2022 | 450 pages | PDF | 6 MB
Israel’s Moment is a major new account of how a Jewish state came to be forged in the shadow of World War Two and the Holocaust and the onset of the Cold War. Drawing on new research in government, public and private archives, Jeffrey Herf exposes the political realities that underpinned support for and opposition to Zionist aspirations in Palestine. In an unprecedented international account, he explores the role of the United States, the Arab States, the Palestine Arabs, the Zionists, and key European governments from Britain and France to the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia and Poland. His findings reveal a spectrum of support and opposition that stood in sharp contrast to the political coordinates that emerged during the Cold War, shedding new light on how and why the state of Israel was established in 1948 and challenging conventional associations of left and right, imperialism and anti-imperialism, and racism and anti-racism.
