The buzz word in education today is accountability. But the federal mandate of "no child left behind" has come to mean curriculums driven by preparation for standardized tests and quantifiable learning results. Even for very young children, unstructured creative time in the classroom is waning as teachers and administrators are under growing pressures to measure school readiness through rote learning and increased homework. In her new book, Vivian Gussin Paley decries this rapid disappearance of creative time and makes the case for the critical role of fantasy play in the psychological, intellectual, and social development of young children.A Child's Work goes inside classrooms around the globe to explore the stunningly original language of children in their role-playing and storytelling. Drawing from their own words, Paley examines how this natural mode of learning allows children to construct meaning in their worlds, meaning that carries through into their adult lives. Proof that play is the work of children, this compelling and enchanting book will inspire and instruct teachers and parents, as well as point to a fundamental misdirection in today's educational programs and strategies.The book is published by The University of Chicago Press. 1.

Make Yourself a Teacher is a teaching book and a book about teaching. It discusses three dramatic, well-known stories about the student and teacher Rabbi Eliezer ben Hyrcanus from the Oral Torah. The stories of R. Eliezer serve as teaching texts and models for reflection on the teacher/student relationship in the Jewish tradition and in contemporary culture, with special emphasis on the hevruta mode of Jewish learning, a collaborative process that invites the reader into a dialogue with teachers past and present.Susan Handelman considers how teacher/student relations sustain and renew the Jewish tradition, especially during troubled times. As a commentary on historical and contemporary educational practices, she asks a range of questions about teaching and learning: What is it that teachers do when they teach? How do knowledge, spirituality, and education relate? What might Jewish models of study and commentary say about how we teach and learn today? Handelman not only presents pedagogical issues that remain controversial in today's debates on education but she also brings the stories themselves to life. Through her readings, the stories beckon us to sit among the sages and be their students.Susan Handelman is professor of English at Bar-Ilan University, Israel. 1. Language: English.

A day in the life of Sam includes daydreaming about cakes made of dog bones, relaxing with the McClaine family - Dad, Mom, six-year-old Jack and baby Molly, and endlessly "saving the day" from inevitable catastrophe! The ever faithful basset hound acts as both a friend and protector of his beloved human family, which can be exhausting at times. Luckily, Sam has some help from his doggy ancestors, who passed down very special, very secret super powers.... With a simple chant, he can switch into super speed mode and even add an extra power, such as super sleuthing, engineering and cleaning! Absolutely no one in the family knows about these super powers, except for little Molly, who couldn't tell anyone even if she wanted to...her main words being, "Ma," "Da" and "More" and "Ja"! Sam can almost always be found hanging out with his best friend, Jack. The two love doing everything together; lounging around the TV room, playing catch out in the garden, and engaging in fun games like Hide & Seek. But one day, the usually innocent game of Hide & Seek goes seriously wrong - and causes a serious house-wide panic! It starts off normally enough, Jack finds Sam with ease...then it's Jack's turn to hide and Sam's to seek, that's where the trouble begins... Jack loses himself in a comic and his favorite tunes while in his super-secret hiding spot - this spot's almost too good. Even Sam's special powers can't seem to help solve the mystery of the missing boy! Meanwhile, Mom and Dad go on a frantic search - even Molly knows something's up. Will the mystery get solved before Mom calls the cops?! Children, parents, and teachers alike will easily delve into this tale full of humor, drama, suspense, and a little learning. 1.

People think of Zen as a humorless religion, but like Christianity, Judaism, and other faiths, Zen has a long tradition of clowns and pranksters. In this enjoyable and thought-provoking talk, Zen master John Daido Loori Roshi tells anecdotes about various ancient and modern Zen teachers who were known for playing the fool. Daido Roshi explores the role of clowns in the Zen tradition, and shows how something deeply profound lies below the surface of a fool's antics. The fool uses mischief to bring one's attention to something more vital, namely the freedom that comes from tapping into one's inner wisdom. He also talks about the importance of having a sense of humor, and the surprising connection between realizing one's true nature and getting a joke. This talk finds Daido Roshi in his best story-telling mode, and offers an enjoyable entry to Zen. Zen Buddhism emphasizes zazen, or seated meditation, as the means to study the self and understand who we truly are. Dharma talks are an essential aspect of Zen training and take place in the context of zazen. Said to be "dark to the mind and radiant to the heart", a dharma talk is one of the ways in which a teacher points directly to the heart of the teachings of the Buddha. In our meditation practice, it is easy to get lost in self-doubt, fantasy, numbness, and emotional agitation. Dharma talks help to ground our practice, providing inspiration and an essential recognition of exactly where we find ourselves, so that we can learn to face difficulties and obstacles with a free and flexible mind. This talk was given at Zen Mountain Monastery or the Zen Center of New York City of the Mountains and Rivers Order of Zen Buddhism, founded in 1980 by the late American Zen Master John Daido Loori, Roshi (1931-2009). 1.

Curriculum is the very heart of the educational process. Other aspects of education exist so that there may be an effective curriculum. The curriculum is generally defined as the educational experiences that children have in school. But the simple construction of curriculum is not enough unless there is clear specifications for its mode of application i.e. transaction in the real classroom situations. As such, the B.Ed. Curriculum need be relevant one with regards to the real classroom teaching practice and should also be appreciated by the teachers as the utilitarian one. The present book is a study on the relevance of secondary teacher-training curriculum in day-to-day teaching as viewed by secondary school teachers. This book can be used by teachers, policy makers, planners, curriculum drafting committees and experts in the field of education.
