Give your kids their greatest chance at success Who Do You Think You Are? helps parents, school counselors, and administrators get teens thinking about - and interested in - their future careers. Success in college and beyond relies on thorough prior preparation; by identifying interests and passions early on, young people are better able to plan for the career they want by mapping out the academic path to support it. This book shows you how to guide teens along on this journey and how to stick with them until they reach the goals they've set. From helping them discover just what it is they're interested in to finding the institution that will help them flourish and setting out a clear "plan of attack", this book provides invaluable insight from an expert in student success. No one expects every student to have a definitive life plan by high school graduation, but having some idea of direction is critical. Nearly 3.3 million students will graduate high school this year, and most will head straight to college - but just 20 percent of those who pursue associate's degrees complete within four years, and only 60 percent of those who pursue bachelor's degrees complete within six years. Even those who earn degrees may struggle to move from school to work. Those who do succeed have done so because they've planned their work and worked their plans. This book shows you how to help your child to be one of the success stories. Map out an academic plan to support each kid's field of interest Identify the best-fit institution to get them where they want to be Balance support and independence throughout your teen's journey Help your child be prepared for college so they can succeed far beyond Adults know that success in life comes from plenty of hard work and thorough preparation - but for kids in middle and high school, that lesson is just now beginning to h 1.

The Promise of An Accidental Pedagogy - Learning and knowing are shy and wary chameleons who change form and color to suit the habitat and environment of the knowledge-seeker. My intent was to investigate the presence and utility of implicitly learned tacit knowledge in those with catastrophic neuromusculoskeletal injury or disease. In reflection, I now see that my ignorance about their use of technology immediately juxtaposed our roles, with me taking on the role of the listener and learner while they became the teacher. My experience with these people convinced me they were learning unusual things about complex medical equipment in unorthodox ways, using techniques that did not appear in the lesson plans or in a text book. Hearing their stories about learning and knowing made me question my own beliefs about teaching and caused me to re-examine that which I define as knowledge. This study explored historical, philosophical, and epistemological foundations of knowledge, and proposes novel techniques for measuring the effectiveness of training programs in this unique group of learners by mapping the utility, presence, and emergence of their implicit and explicit learning.
Eerie Silence is a revelatory, jolting exploration into the ramifications of justice inaction in America and beyond and how silence has destructively contributed to issues related to race, racism, education, theology, and racial identity development. The compiled scholarship and research contained within the Eerie Silence project is provoking, risky, confrontational, validating, challenging, feisty, and emotionally and intellectually vulnerable. It is a must read for every person seeking a better grasp of the historically interlocked elements of race, racism, religion, theology, authentic Christianity, and racial identity development, especially as it relates to America and its influence. Erie Silence is an amazing book! Dr. Saheli has carefully deconstructed not only biblical narratives but also global history like an artist. With every stroke of his brush, he has created a multi-layered and complete work that has direct applications in many fields and disciplines... -Jennifer Tosch, Founder, Black Heritage Tours in NY State & Amsterdam, Netherlands Member, Mapping Slavery Project Netherlands Well-researched, superbly argued, and profoundly written, Eerie Silence is all at once a history lesson, critical social commentary, autobiographical sketch, sermon, and call to action to end the silence on race/racism. Saheli does a masterful job of intersecting several areas that share the stamp of racism and injustice in common. This is a powerful read for those who are in need for a deep, thoughtful, provocative, intellectual, and empowering learning experience about race in the United States. -Sharroky Hollie, PhD Executive Director, Center for Culturally Responsive Teaching and Learning This is a wine that will not last long in the wineskins of traditionalism, conservatism, anti-ism, self-righteousness, and isolated fellowship with link minded others, it is a call to ministry to break down the middle wall of racial partition in the church and society in order that generations of women, men, and young people might go unencumbered in their full potential and development. -James L. Taylor, PhD, Professor of Politics San Francisco, California
