From the New York Times best-selling author of How Children Succeed, an essential handbook of “informative and effective methods to help children overcome issues and thrive at home and in school”*—now including sixteen new infographics! In How Children Succeed, Paul Tough introduced us to research showing that personal qualities like perseverance, self-control, and conscientiousness play a critical role in children’s success. Now, in Helping Children Succeed, Tough takes on a new set of pressing questions: What does growing up in poverty do to children’s mental and physical development? How does adversity at home affect their success in the classroom, from preschool to high school? And what practical steps can the adults who are responsible for them take to improve their chances for a positive future? Tough once again encourages us to think in a new way about the challenges of childhood. Mining the latest research in psychology and neuroscience, he provides us with insights and strategies for a new approach to childhood adversity, one designed to help many more children succeed. * (Kirkus Reviews)

“Of the over one hundred new publications on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), this one truly stands out! In the second edition of Building Academic Language, Jeff Zwiers presents a much-needed, comprehensive roadmap to cultivating academic language development across all disciplines, this time placing the rigor and challenges of the CCSS front and center. A must-have resource!” —Andrea Honigsfeld, EdD, Molloy College “Language is critical to the development of content learning as students delve more deeply into specific disciplines. When students possess strong academic language, they are better able to critically analyze and synthesize complex ideas and abstract concepts. In this second edition of Building Academic Language, Jeff Zwiers successfully builds the connections between the Common Core State Standards and academic language. This is the ‘go to’ resource for content teachers as they transition to the expectations for college and career readiness.” —Katherine S. McKnight, PhD, National Louis University With the adoption of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) by most of the United States, students need help developing their understanding and use of language within the ­academic context. This is crucially important throughout middle school and high school, as the subjects ­discussed and concepts taught require a firm grasp of language in order to understand the greater complexity of the subject matter. Building Academic Language shows teachers what they can do to help their students grasp language principles and develop the language skills they’ll need to reach their highest levels of academic achievement. The Second Edition of Building Academic Language includes new strategies for addressing specific Common Core standards and also provides answers to the most important questions across various content areas, including: What is academic language and how does it differ by content area? How can language-building activities support content understanding for students? How can teachers assist students in using language more effectively, especially in the academic context? How can academic language usage be modeled routinely in the classroom? How can lesson planning and assessment support academic language development? An essential resource for teaching all students, this book explains what every teacher needs to know about language for supporting reading, writing, and academic learning.

Being smart is more than getting good grades in school. It’s more than reading well, solving math problems, memorizing facts, and having a high IQ. Psychologist Dr. Howard Gardner studied how kids and adults learn. He discovered many different ways people can be smart. You can be Music Smart. People Smart. Self Smart. Nature Smart. Life Smart. Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences has changed how teachers teach in schools around the world. Look inside to: • Learn about the nine different intelligences and what they mean • Find out which ones you have (Hint: You already have all nine, just in different degrees) • Make the most of your strongest intelligences • Strengthen your other intelligences • Use all nine intelligences at school, at home, and everywhere you go • Discover more about who you are and who you can be • Understand and get along better with the people around you • Look to the future and how you’ll use your smarts when you get older Quick quizzes help you identify the many ways you’re smart. Did You Know? boxes entertain you with fascinating facts. Easy-to-use lists give you lots of fun ways to build your smarts. Resources point you toward books, magazines, and websites where you can learn even more. Because it’s not about how smart you are, but how you are smart. Thomas Armstrong, PhD, is an award-winning author and speaker with 40 years of teaching experience and over 1 million copies of his books in print.
