Gifts, talents and education : a living theory approach by Barry Hymer( )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gifts, Talents and Education: A Living Theory Approach is a practical guide for teachers on how to help all their pupils to enhance their gifts and talents in the classroom." "Examples reveal how teachers can transform the way education is understood in schools, by relating stories of how they learned about their own gifts and talents. The book explains recent key developments in multimedia representations of social and emotional aspects of learning. These permit the multi-sensory gifts and talents of individual learners to be recognised and developed within a process that enhances the emotionally literate space of enquiring classrooms."
The Routledge international companion to gifted education by Tom Balchin( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Routledge International Companion to Gifted Education is a ground-breaking collection of fully-referenced chapters written by many of the most highly-respected authorities on the subject from around the world. These fifty contributors include distinguished scholars who have produced many of the most significant advances to the field over the past few decades, like Joseph Renzulli and Robert Sternberg, alongside authorities who ask questions about the very concepts and terminology embodied in the field - scholars such as Carol Dweck and Guy Claxton. This multi-faceted volume: highlights strategies to support giftedness in children, providing ideas that work and weeding out those that don't; is written in jargon-free language in an easy-to use themed format; is the most authoritative collection of future-focused views, ideas and reflections, practices and evaluations yet produced; includes chapters dealing with the major controversies and concerns in the field today, from the problems of identification to changing understandings of giftedness and creativity. The international aspect of the Companion, and its juxtaposition of points of view - whereby chapters are deliberately positioned and accompanied by editorial commentary to highlight the contrasts with each other - ensures that different views are addressed, allowing the reader to absorb and reflect upon the many perspectives on each issue. The Companion is a guide to the new ideas and controversies that are informing gifted education discussion and policy-making around the world. It is a first class resource to students and researchers alike."--Publisher's website
Learning teaching : becoming an inspirational teacher by Pete Boyd( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This essential and aspirational text is aimed at all beginning teachers, whatever their training route, age phase, and setting. The book explicitly adopts and builds on a new metaphor for teachers' professional learning as interplay between the body of public knowledge and the practical wisdom of teachers within a particular school setting. It also accepts that 'telling' someone how to teach is ineffective; one needs to 'become a teacher' because it involves identity and practice. Inquiry-based critically reflective learning with a clear focus on the learning of pupils is proposed as the core strategy by which one can build knowledge and skills to become an outstanding teacher. Core topics - including planning, inclusion, teaching, assessment, and professional development - are tackled in the book in an accessible and refreshing way, using key research informed evidence. The focus is relentlessly on 'learning' rather than performance, in order to support becoming an excellent professional teacher (rather than a 'competent technician') who makes a difference to learners, colleagues, schools, and policy. Consider the book as a temporary or additional mentor that challenges the reader with different ways of thinking about learning and that provides strategies to guide professional learning. *** ''It takes 10 years or more to begin to be a brain surgeon, but sometimes we get 1-3 years at most before we are allowed to work with children's brains as teachers. So we need inspirational teachers and this is the focus of this compact, powerful and insightful book. It is wonderfully designed around five of the most critical dilemmas in our classrooms: belief vs. ability; autonomy vs. compliance; abstract vs. concrete; feedback vs. praise; and collaboration vs. competition. The power of the book is that it illustrates the new move to focus on learning power - and such a focus permits every student to become smarter through effort and deep practice as they struggle with the high-challenge learning activities - in the presence of inspirational, impactful and passionate teachers. The perfect book for those who want to make most of their opportunity to enhance students' brain power.'' -- John Hattie, Director, Melbourne Education Research Institute *** Librarians: ebook available [Subject: Education]

4 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

You know the story of the three little pigs. But you've never explored it like this. Here are 60 challenging pig-related classroom exercises that will ask your students to try, try again, make mistakes, have false starts, persist, sweat, struggle and eventually succeed. It may make their brains hurt, but it is a hurting brain that is a growing brain. While this book uses the story of the three little pigs, it really isn't about the pigs and the wolf. It's about helping your students develop a growth mindset by getting them to think between, above, below, around and beyond the lines. And once they've grown their brains by working through the challenges in this book, they will be ready to accept new challenges and to keep growing more and more neural connections
Growth mindset pocketbook by Barry Hymer( )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and Dutch and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whatever it is that makes you you, can you affect it? Your answer to that question gives us a glimpse into your 'mindset'. People with fixed mindsets believe that fundamental qualities like intelligence are essentially stable; people with growth mindsets believe that such qualities can be developed and nurtured. As teachers, if we can foster growth mindsets in our students the results will be transformative. Barry Hymer and Mike Gershon begin by explaining how learners with growth mindsets are: more open to challenges and constructively critical feedback; resilient in the face of obstacles and

Embedded voices( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The researchers examined transcripts of comments made and dialogues engaged in by children, teachers and student teaching assistants during a 10-week enrichment programme for gifted and talented children aged 7-9 years. Attempts were made to match these utterances with the programme's aims and aspirations as expressed in a promotional document. Little evidence of match was revealed, but considerable evidence did emerge of the extent to which dominant technical-rational discourses and practices permeate even privileged and non-state-sponsored educational environments, at the expense of children's learning. Suggestions are made for foregrounding the processes of high quality pupil learning rather than the products of pupil performances in enrichment and extension programmes, and thereby for achieving greater congruence between this programme's avowed aims and practice
