Note: This is the loose-leaf version of Transforming Learning with New Technologies and does not include access to the Enhanced Pearson eText. To order the Enhanced Pearson eText packaged with the loose-leaf version, use ISBN 0134020634. This new guide is packed with strategies and ideas on how teachers and students can use desktops, laptops, smartphones, tablets, apps, interactive educational websites, learning games, blogs and wikis, assistive technologies, digital portfolios, and many other new and emerging technologies to create highly interactive, inquiry-based teaching and learning experiences in K-12 schools. Transforming Learning with New Technologies is designed to help current and future teachers transform classrooms into technology-infused places of learning where adults and students work together as educational partners to understand and use technology to the best advantage. With its focus on the day-to-day realities of elementary and secondary schools, each chapter addresses the needs of future educators by providing thoughtful perspectives, instructional examples, descriptions of tools and apps, and technology-integrated lesson plans from across the curriculum for all grade levels, K through 12. The book emphasizes the new knowledge and expanded talents teachers and students who use technology need to have in order to develop in their future careers and social life-what the Partnership for 21st Century Skills calls the 3Rs (the changing content of the academic curriculum as schools move to include problem solving and inquiry learning in subject areas) and the 4Cs (the skills of critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity). It shows how teaching and learning with the 3Rs and 4Cs helps teachers using technology prepare, deliver, and assess lessons differently, while students use technology to think critically and creatively about all learning they do. The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded video and assessments. Improve mastery and retention with the Enhanced Pearson eText*

    More Info
    One of our most brilliantly iconoclastic playwrights takes on the art of profession of acting with these words: invent nothing, deny nothing, speak up, stand up, stay out of school. Acting schools, "interpretation," "sense memory," "The Method"--David Mamet takes a jackhammer to the idols of contemporary acting, while revealing the true heroism and nobility of the craft. He shows actors how to undertake auditions and rehearsals, deal with agents and directors, engage audiences, and stay faithful to the script, while rejecting the temptations that seduce so many of their colleagues. Bracing in its clarity, exhilarating in its common sense, True and False is as shocking as it is practical, as witty as it is instructive, and as irreverent as it is inspiring.

(Civil process is included because it is an important aspect of the victim--offender interaction.) Second, they discuss responses to victimization, including techniques for empowering victims. They next turn to special types of victims, including the elderly, the disabled, and gay and lesbian victims. Finally, they thoroughly review the civil remedies available to crime victims. A brief discussion of the juvenile system is also included because more attention is being focused on youth violence. Throughout the text, key concepts are supported with a comprehensive package of pedagogical material and teaching/learning aids.

    When Work Disappears THE WORLD OF THE NEW URBAN POOR

    $12.99
    More Info
    Wilson, one of our foremost authorities on race and poverty, challenges decades of liberal and conservative pieties to look squarely at the devastating effects that joblessness has had on our urban ghettos. Marshaling a vast array of data and the personal stories of hundreds of men and women, Wilson persuasively argues that problems endemic to America's inner cities--from fatherless households to drugs and violent crime--stem directly from the disappearance of blue-collar jobs in the wake of a globalized economy. Wilson's achievement is to portray this crisis as one that affects all Americans, and to propose solutions whose benefits would be felt across our society. At a time when welfare is ending and our country's racial dialectic is more strained than ever, When Work Disappears is a sane, courageous, and desperately important work.


    "Wilson is the keenest liberal analyst of the most perplexing of all American problems...[This book is] more ambitious and more accessible than anything he has done before."
    "--The New Yorker"
