    Great Minds and How to Grow Them High Performance Learning
    Great Minds and How to Grow Them is a handbook for parents that shows how they can grow the minds of their children and teenagers and guide them to success both at school and in life. The latest neurological and psychological research is proving that most children are capable of reaching high levels of performance that were previously associated only with the gifted and talented. Brains are malleable and IQ is not fixed yet, without parental engagement in their learning, many children don't reach the levels of performance that are associated with academic success. Combining new knowledge with extensive research into how we learn, this book proves that by using simple, everyday techniques that are both rooted in research and accessible for parents, children can learn to learn more successfully. There is room at the top of the class for many more children than we ever thought possible.

    An engaging collaboration between a world-class academic and an award-winning journalist, this inspirational book includes chapters on:
    * how to develop a good home learning environment;
    * how to make the most of school;
    * how to develop values, attitudes and attributes that are associated with success at school and in life;
    * how to develop thinking and learning skills in the three ages of learning;
    * how to tackle potentially tricky areas like homework and adolescence.

    This practical guide will be essential reading for parents, teachers and all those interested in helping children and young people to reach their full potential.

Now, in Helping Children Succeed, he outlines the practical steps that adults - from parents and teachers to policy makers and philanthropists - can take to improve the chances of every child, however adverse their circumstances.

  • Hidden Lives of Learners
    Hidden Lives of Learners
    The Hidden Lives of Learners takes the reader deep into the hitherto undiscovered world of the learner. It explores the three worlds which together shape a student's learning-public world of the teacher, the highly influential world of peers, and the student's own private world and experiences. What becomes clear is that just because a teacher is teaching, does not mean students are learning. Using a unique method of data collection through meticulous recording-audio, video, observations, interview, pre and posttests-and the collation and analysis of what occurred inside and outside the classroom, Graham Nuthall has definitely documented what is involved for most students to learn and retain a concept. In the author's lifetime, the significance of his discoveries and the rare mix of quantitative and qualitative methods were widely recognised and continue to be one of the foundation stones of evidence-based quality education.

  • Myths of Happiness
    Myths of Happiness
    The bestselling author of The How of Happiness reveals how to find opportunity in life s thorniest moments
    Focusing on life s biggest, messiest moments, Sonja Lyubomirsky provides readers with the clear-eyed vision they need to build the healthiest, most satisfying life. Lyubomirsky argues that we have been given false promises myths that assure us that lifelong happiness will be attained once we hit the culturally confirmed markers of adult success. This black-and-white vision of happiness works to discourage us from recognizing the upside of any negative and limits our potential for personal growth. A corrective course on happiness and a call to regard life s twists and turns with a more open mind, The Myths of Happiness shares practical lessons that prove we are more adaptable than we think we are. It empowers readers to look beyond their first response, sharing scientific evidence that often it is our mindset not our circumstances that matters most.

  • Perfect Petunias
    Perfect Petunias
    The 'perfect' book for kids who find it hard to make mistakes! Sometimes 'perfect' just means trying your best.

    Perfect Petunias is a book especially for those little people who find it hard to make mistakes, designed to 'shape' perfectionistic tendencies towards being a little more self-accepting and flexible. Loppy LAC is very worried about not doing his homework well enough. He is always focusing on what he hasn't done rather then what he has, and he becomes very frustrated. So, his friend Curly teaches him about how petunias grow - in lots of different, imperfect directions that we can't control! Loppy learns that by trying to control whether he makes mistakes or not it's as if he's always trying to grow 'perfect' petunias. Sometimes he just needs to accept that things go a certain way and to change his definition of 'perfect' to mean trying his absolute best. Perfect Petunias is the third book in the 'Lessons of a LAC' series. This gorgeous series, by an author and illustrator who are passionate about giving children ways to think about and manage common emotional difficulties, is a valuable resource for every child to help guide their emotional development.

  • Resilience Factor
    Resilience Factor
    Resilience is a crucial ingredient-perhaps "the" crucial ingredient-to a happy, healthy life. More than anything else, it's what determines how high we rise above what threatens to wear us down, from battling an illness, to bolstering a marriage, to carrying on after a national crisis. Everyone needs resilience, and now two expert psychologists share seven proven techniques for enhancing our capacity to weather even the cruelest setbacks. The science in "The Resilience Factor" takes an extraordinary leap from the research introduced in the bestselling "Learned Optimism "a decade ago. Just as hundreds of thousands of people were transformed by "flexible optimism," readers of this book will flourish, thanks to their enhanced ability to overcome obstacles of any kind. Karen Reivich and Andrew Shatte are seasoned resilience coaches and, through practical methods and vivid anecdotes, they prove that resilience is not just an ability that we're born with and need to survive, but a skill that anyone can learn and improve in order to thrive. Readers will first complete the Resilience Questionnaire to determine their own innate levels of resilience. Then, the system at the heart of "The Resilience Factor" will teach them to: - Cast off harsh self-criticisms and negative self-images- Navigate through the fallout of any kind of crisis- Cope with grief and anxiety- Overcome obstacles in relationships, parenting, or on the job - Achieve greater physical health- Bolster optimism, take chances, and embrace life In light of the unprecedented challenges we've recently faced, there's never been a greater need to boost our resilience. Without resorting to feel-good pap or quick-fix cliches, "The Resilience Factor" is self-help at its best, destined to become a classic in the genre.
