    How Children Succeed Grit Curiosity and the Hidden Power of Character
    "Drop the flashcards--grit, character, and curiosity matter even more than cognitive skills. A persuasive wake-up call."--People

    Why do some children succeed while others fail? The story we usually tell about childhood and success is the one about intelligence: success comes to those who score highest on tests, from preschool admissions to SATs. But in How Children Succeed, Paul Tough argues that the qualities that matter more have to do with character: skills like perseverance, curiosity, optimism, and self-control. How Children Succeed introduces us to a new generation of researchers and educators, who, for the first time, are using the tools of science to peel back the mysteries of character. Through their stories--and the stories of the children they are trying to help--Tough reveals how this new knowledge can transform young people's lives. He uncovers the surprising ways in which parents do--and do not--prepare their children for adulthood. And he provides us with new insights into how to improve the lives of children growing up in poverty. This provocative and profoundly hopeful book will not only inspire and engage readers, it will also change our understanding of childhood itself.

    "Illuminates the extremes of American childhood: for rich kids, a safety net drawn so tight it's a harness; for poor kids, almost nothing to break their fall."--New York Times "I learned so much reading this book and I came away full of hope about how we can make life better for all kinds of kids."--Slate

    Teachers will discover ways to enhance student learning in four broad areas:

    personal identity and wellbeing
    communication and relationships with others
    social issues and social justice (especially against discrimination and exclusion)
    health promotion and action.

    personal identity and enhancing self-worth
    stress management
    friendships, relationships, and communication
    effects of discrimination and stereotyping on mental health
    support of self and others during times of difficulty

    Each section begins with specific achievement objectives, but teachers are free to develop their own. For this reason, achievement objectives for each activity are not specified. Instead, teachers can use the matrix showing links with the New Zealand Curriculum.

    Sociocultural Realities Exploring New Horizons T
    Required text EDEM 685 semester 1, 2020

    "Sociocultural Realities: Exploring new horizons" examines sociocultural approaches in the education sector, from early childhood to tertiary. With few publications covering such a range, there is a common struggle to gain a better understanding of the impact of social and cultural discourses on learning and teaching; this book aims to encourage the discussion and application of the theory and practice by researchers, policy-makers and teacher educators in Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and elsewhere. By way of a range of personal experiences, and some innovative research that showcases sociocultural theory in practice, the book offers practical examples for educators to employ in today's diverse learning contexts. Three key messages recur: the importance of people working in partnership, the worthiness of protecting diversity and uniqueness, and the significance of participation as an enabler of success. "Sociocultural Realities: Exploring new horizons" is a reference for teachers, special education advisors, psychologists, university lecturers and paraprofessionals.
