Summary
"When Timothy D. Walker started teaching fifth graders at a Helsinki public school, he began a search for the secrets behind the successes of Finland's schools. Walker wrote about several of those discoveries, and his Atlantic articles on this subject became hot topics of conversation. Here, he gathers all he learned and reveals how any teacher can implement many of Finland's best practices."--jacket

Summary
"From the director of Race to Nowhere, the popular 2010 documentary on our education system that has become a long-running grassroots phenomenon, and a new film, Beyond Measure, comes a groundbreaking book for parents, students, and educators on how to revolutionize learning, prioritize children's health, and re-envision success for a lifetime. From kindergarteners to high-schoolers, millions of American students are being pressured to perform in ways that make them less intellectually flexible, creative, and responsive to today's world. In Race to Nowhere, Vicki Abeles identified a widespread problem in our nation's schools: as students race against each other to have constantly higher grades, better test scores, and more AP courses than their classmates, they are irreparably damaging their mental and physical health. Now Abeles taps into this same grassroots community across the nation to find the solutions in Beyond Measure, which publishes simultaneously with the release of her new documentary. Pulling from powerful anecdotes and convincing new research, Abeles presents inspirational, quantifiable success stories and shows how anyone--students, parents, and educators--can effect change. Teachers who cut students' workload see scores rise; kids discover their own motivation once parents relieve the pressure to perform; schools that institute later start times have well-rested students who are able to learn more efficiently; and schools that emphasize depth over test prep find students more attentive, inventive, and ready to thrive. It's no secret that our education system is broken, and Beyond Measure inspires parents, educators, and students to take practical steps to fix it--starting today. In so doing, it empowers all of us to redefine learning and success, and to discover the true, untapped potential awaiting our children, not just in college, but in life"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary
This classic video is an outstanding resource for preschool providers, parents and early childhood specialists that shows them ways to nourish and develop the genius in very young children. Based upon his best-selling book, "Awakening Genius in the Classroom" (published by ASCD), this video features Dr. Thomas Armstrong as he explores the history associated with genius, and debunks the narrow but widely held belief that genius is solely a function of performing well above average in tasks that require academic skills. Armstrong argues that there is genius in every child, which parents and teachers need to discover and awaken. He identifies negative environmental influences that often prevent the genius from revealing itself in children, and discusses factors that awaken and nurture genius, and enhance its growth and development. Viewers will observe Dr. Armstrong's theory being put into practice in schools, and in particular how the Montessori approach nurtures the genius in young children. The executive director of Association Montessori International/USA helps to profile schools that take a creative and unconventional approach to developing students' gifts and raising student achievement and performance, and shares easily implemented strategies with viewers.
