Edition: 2nd ed.

Language: English  

Publisher: New York : McGraw-Hill Education, 2016

Summary:     Choosing Success focuses on how good decision-making skills determine success in all aspects of life. From study skills to money management, Choosing Success applies active and service learning techniques as well as the 5C decision-making model to prepare students for success. By incorporating a decision-making focus into every chapter, Choosing Success emphasizes accountability and conveys to students how important they are in their own success. Students do not merely become successful, but rather they choose to be successful. Choice starts with the decision to acquire a secondary education, and from then on everything students do is based on their decision-making skills. The more they practice good decision making, the more control they have over their successes and failures. Choosing Success is unique in that it provides students with a process for decision making as well as numerous opportunities to think through the choices and decisions they face as a college student-and beyond.

Summary:     "Read Creative Teaching for All as an antidote to rapidly growing pressures for quick and easy teacher results, and constant evaluations. Employ creative ideas to resist teaching to the (usually factual) test, and to the many choking rules, standards, cores, and state regulations that strangle motivation and destroy experimentation. Reclaim teacher control of curriculum design and instructional methods across all fields by boldly going 'outside', even off the walls, where teachers have lived happier lives before the invention of rubrics and rules. Become the truly creative teacher to which you have aspired! Highlights of the book: explores and expands opportunities for engaging student conversation and ideas; adds variety and depth to your teaching methods; hone questioning and critical thinking skills; move from lower to higher levels; and reinvent instruction at home, work, or in classrooms as places of imagination and enjoyment."--Publisher's description.
