Read Rafe Esquith's posts on the Penguin Blog. From one of America’s most celebrated educators, an inspiring guide to transforming every child’s education In a Los Angeles neighborhood plagued by guns, gangs, and drugs, there is an exceptional classroom known as Room 56. The fifth graders inside are first-generation immigrants who live in poverty and speak English as a second language. They also play Vivaldi, perform Shakespeare, score in the top 1 percent on standardized tests, and go on to attend Ivy League universities. Rafe Esquith is the teacher responsible for these accomplishments. From the man whom The New York Times calls “a genius and a saint” comes a revelatory program for educating today’s youth. In Teach Like Your Hair’s on Fire!, Rafe Esquith reveals the techniques that have made him one of the most acclaimed educators of our time. The two mottoes in Esquith’s classroom are “Be Nice, Work Hard,” and “There Are No Shortcuts.” His students voluntarily come to school at 6:30 in the morning and work until 5:00 in the afternoon. They learn to handle money responsibly, tackle algebra, and travel the country to study history. They pair Hamlet with rock and roll, and read the American classics. Teach Like Your Hair’s on Fire! is a brilliant and inspiring road map for parents, teachers, and anyone who cares about the future success of our nation’s children.

The prevailing discourse surrounding urban music education suggests the deficit-laden notion that urban school settings are "less than," rather than "different than," their counterparts. Through the lens of contextually-specific teaching, this book provides a counternarrative on urban music education that encourages urban music teachers to focus on the strengths of their students as their primary resource. Through a combination of research-based strategies and practical suggestions from the author's own experience teaching music in urban settings, the book highlights important issues for teachers to consider, such as culturally relevant pedagogy, the "opportunity gap," race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, musical content, curricular change, music program development, student motivation, and strategies for finding inspiration and support. Throughout the book, the stories of five highly successful urban music teachers are highlighted, providing practical, real-world advice for music teachers across the domains of general, choral, band, and string music teaching. Recognizing that the term "urban" can encompass a wide variety of different school and community settings, this book challenges all teachers who work in under-served and under-resourced settings to take a critical look at their own music classroom and work to tailor their pedagogy to meet the particular needs of their students.

But tests are a fact of life in schools; they can't be ignored and, when properly used, can be beneficial to students and teachers. Christopher Deneen and James Deneen have written a practical guide to testing."--BOOK JACKET.

«Δώστε μου τον Χάρι Πότερ», είπε η φωνή του Βόλντεμορτ, «και δε θα σας πειράξω. Δώστε μου τον Χάρι Πότερ και θ’ αφήσω ανέγγιχτο το σχολείο. Δώστε μου τον Χάρι Πότερ και θα σας ανταμείψω». Καθώς σκαρφαλώνει στο καλάθι συνεπιβάτη της μοτοσικλέτας του Χάγκριντ και πετάει στους ουρανούς, εγκαταλείποντας για πάντα την οδό Πριβέτ, ο Χάρι Πότερ ξέρει ότι ο Λόρδος Βόλντεμορτ και οι Θανατοφάγοι βρίσκονται στα ίχνη του. Το ξόρκι που προστάτευε τον Χάρι μέχρι τώρα έχει σπάσει, αλλά δεν μπορεί να παραμείνει κρυμμένος. Ο Σκοτεινός Άρχοντας απειλεί όλους και όλα όσα αγαπά ο Χάρι και, για να τον σταματήσει, ο Χάρι πρέπει να βρει και να καταστρέψει τους υπόλοιπους πεμπτουσιωτές. Η τελική μάχη πρέπει να αρχίσει –ο Χάρι πρέπει να αντιμετωπίσει τον θανάσιμο εχθρό του...
