Step by step guide to delivering a semester or quarter student success course using the Power Learners Handbook for College Success as the textbook. Hundreds of faculty members have helped over 90% of their students gain the mindset and methods to succeed in their other courses. The Handbook and this Faculty Guide provide the instruction and exercises for a complete course. You can prepare and deliver your course without developing lesson plans, lectures, assignments and tests. Using a Learning Lab format, you can guide, coach and advise your students, as they practice best known methods for doing the work of learning--the two hours of study outside of class that is expected for every hour in their lecture/discussion class. You will have the satisfaction of seeing your students grow in competence, confidence and motivation as learners. As they find they have the intelligence and concentration to master college level work, their natural curiosity and thirst for learning will be rejuvenated. With the Learning Lab format, time will fly by in your classes for you and your students. Without lectures to prepare and papers and tests to grade outside of class, you will have time to provide one-on-one help to every student during class and in your office hours. Proven results from over 100 courses. One faculty member said, "This allowed me to do what I orginally went into teaching to do."

Chances are you will go to a college near where you live or go to one online. Many people now do parts of their degrees online then attend the college physically for awhile. In-state is always cheaper than going to a college out of state because your local government subsidizes residents at the local public universities, not the private ones. Private universities charge whatever they want to everybody. Publicly-funded ones are much cheaper. The real issue is what do you study. Do you listen to what everybody else says including the world system or yourself? That’s the eternal question. Will I be the hero of my own life or will I be a clone, following everybody else? College is not necessarily the answer to life. You are. Whatever lives inside of you is strong, unique and vital. College can help you find it but by itself college is a fantasy land for young people.

The system has created a standard for normal intelligence and anyone who doesn't fit this definition is branded as mentally challenged, autistic or learning disabled in some way. Human life is big and abundant. The school system's definition of normal intelligence is narrow. Any individual's purpose in life is to become who they are naturally born to be. Some kids are great with animals. They have a special touch. Some are born creative, esthetic, athletic, visionary, sociable, good with their hands, etc. but they're not inspired or naturally good at the normal definition of intelligence. It doesn't mean they're stupid or inferior. It just means they have their own talents that do not fit into the standard skills of a grade school education. This is why I'm telling all parents of kids who don't seem to be successful at a normal grade school that you can't believe everything the supposed mental health experts and school authorities say about your child.

Brain Power Enrichment Programs aim to develop problem-solving abilities in students who wish to improve their skills. Additionally, the programs may provide challenging, stimulating and inspirational learning experiences through engagement with problem solving for gifted students. This book accompanies a Level One student through his/her first semester of the problem solving program (or it may be used independently as a problem solving workbook). All Brain Power programs are based on a step-by-step approach, which enables students to understand problems of increasing complexity. Level One begins to equip students typically in grades 4 to 6 with various problem solving strategies and techniques, and supports the application of these skills to math, language arts, study habits and the general learning process. In Level One, students are introduced to four critical steps in problem solving: 1) Understanding the problem 2) Defining a plan or strategy 3) Solving the problem 4) Checking the answer. The implications for improving one’s problem solving skills are numerous. These include a more positive attitude toward math and science, improved thinking flexibility and creativity in all subject areas, as well as increased success in academic, gifted, university admissions, and professional program tests (many of which are designed with an emphasis on assessing higher-order thinking skills). Moreover, knowledge of a range of problem solving strategies, coupled with experience in their application, have benefits which transcend the classroom and enter the realm of professional, social and intellectual accomplishment.

The Power of Teacher Talk investigates the connections between two persistent educational challenges -- high numbers both of students who drop out and of teachers who leave the profession. Based on a study of thousands of daily interactions between new justice-oriented English teachers and their students, this book proposes that teachers who show a commitment to equity in their communications can positively affect student retention and are more likely to remain in the profession. Blending vivid descriptions of classroom life with equity and language research, the author urges teachers to be aware of and intentional about the power of their interactions with sudents -- in everything from their classroom decor and informal hallway chats to their responses to challenging moments during class and in after-class discussions. This must-read book shifts the narrative on what kinds of teaching practices matter and how teachers can and do work toward equity. Book Features: uses innovative research methods to reveal the importance of spontaneous, teacher/student interactions, an often overlooked aspect of teaching practice; provides rare insight into how teachers work within the boundaries of traditional public high school classes to help both marginalized students and teachers themselves to succeed; challenges teachers school leaders, and teacher educators with practical ways to overcome common obstacles to equity oriented teaching; includes classroom examples, concrete suggestions, and engaging reflection questions to inspire discussion and positive changes.
