Teaching and Counseling for Today's World, Pre-K-12 and Beyond.
Radd, Tommie R.
This book is a guide for teachers, counselors, administrators, and other helping professionals. The focus of the book is to provide an innovative approach to education that develops students' spirit, purpose, and potential. The author shows educators how to: create inviting schools that foster maximum student success; turn classrooms into life labs in which students learn and apply critical life skills; address urgent issues such as school achievement and school violence with strategies that work; and put this plan to work in preparing students to meet the challenges of the 21st century. This is accomplished by discussing: 24 concerns facing students and education today, including academic achievement, multicultural understanding, school improvement, school-to-career, safe schools, drug-free schools, character education, emotional intelligence, and challenges for the global community such as terrorism and other trauma; essential elements to consider to address these concerns; models based on the essential elements; and visual formulas and discussion of solutions for the 24 concerns based on the models.
