Companion Classroom Activities for Stop Faking It! Force and Motion

Companion Classroom Activities for Stop Faking It! Force and Motion
$25.95

Never has it been so easy for educators to learn to teach physical science with confidence. Award-winning author Bill Robertson launched his bestselling Stop Faking It! series in 2002 with Force and Motion—offering elementary and middle school teachers a jargon-free way to learn the background for teaching physical science with confidence. Combining easy-to-understand—if irreverent—explanations and quirky diagrams, Stop Faking It! Force and Motion helped thousands of teachers, parents, and homeschoolers conquer topics from Newton’s laws to the physics of space travel. Now Companion Classroom Activities for Stop Faking It! Force and Motion proves an ideal supplement to the original book—or a valuable resource of its own. The hands-on activities and highly readable explanations allow students to first investigate concepts, then discuss learned concepts, and finally apply the concepts to everyday situations. Robertson’s wit and humor are sure to keep students and teachers entertained while they tackle topics such as acceleration, speed, and gravity. Each activity includes an objective, materials list, National Science Education Standards addressed, approximate completion time, and detailed step-by-step instructions. Student pages for recording observations and student evaluation questionnaires to help assess understanding are also provided.

#1 bestselling author and popular radio and television host Glenn Beck considers the hot-button issue of education in the US, exposing the weaknesses of the Common Core school curriculum and examining why liberal solutions fail. Public education is never mentioned in the constitution. Why? Because our founders knew that it was an issue for state and local governmentsnot the federal one. It's not a coincidence that the more the federal government has inserted itself into public education over the years, the worse our kids have fared. Washington dangles millions of dollars in front of states and then tells them what they have to do to get it. It's backdoor nationalization of educationand it's leading us to ruin. In Conform , Glenn Beck presents a well-reasoned, fact-based analysis that proves it's not more money our schools needit's a complete refocusing of their priorities and a total restructuring of their relationship with the federal government. In the process, he dismantles many of the common myths and talking points that are often heard by those who want to protect the status quo. Critics of the current system are just teacher bashers Teachers' unions put kids first ...Homeschooled kids suffer both academically and socially local control is an excuse to protect mediocrity Common Core is rigorous and state led Critics of Common Core are just conspiracy theorists Elementary school teachers need tenure ...We can't reform schools until we eradicate poverty school choice takes money away from public schools Charter schools perform poorly relative to public schools. There is no issue more important to America's future than education. The fact that we've yielded control over it to powerful unions and ideologically driven elitists is inexcusable. We are failing ourselves, our children, and our country. Conform gives parents the facts they need to take back the debate and help usher in a new era of education built around the commonsense principles of choice, freedom, and accountability.

Crunchy Cons

Crunchy Cons
$11.99

When a National Review colleague teased writer Rod Dreher one day about his visit to the local food co-op to pick up a week's supply of organic vegetables (Ewww, that's so lefty), he started thinking about the ways he and his conservative family lived that put them outside the bounds of conventional Republican politics. Shortly thereafter Dreher wrote an essay about crunchy cons, people whose Small Is Beautiful style of conservative politics often put them at odds with GOP orthodoxy, and sometimes even in the same camp as lefties outside the Democratic mainstream. The response to the article was impassioned: Dreher was deluged by e-mails from conservatives across Americaeveryone from a pro-life vegetarian Buddhist Republican to an NRA staffer with a passion for organic gardeningwho responded to say, Hey, me too! In Crunchy Cons , Dreher reports on the amazing depth and scope of this phenomenon, which is redefining the taxonomy of America's political and cultural landscape. At a time when the Republican party, and the conservative movement in general, is bitterly divided over what it means to be a conservative, Dreher introduces us to people who are pioneering a way back to the future by reclaiming what's best in conservatismpeople who believe that being a truly committed conservative today means protecting the environment, standing against the depredations of big business, returning to traditional religion, and living out conservative godfather Russell Kirk's teaching that the family is the institution most necessary to preserve. In these pages we meet crunchy cons from all over America: a Texas clan of evangelical Christian free-range livestock farmers, the policy director of Republicans for Environmental Protection, homeschooling moms in New York City, an Orthodox Jew who helped start a kosher organic farm in the Berkshires, and an ex-sixties hippie from Alabama who became a devout Catholic without losing his antiestablishment sensibilities. Crunchy Cons is both a useful primer to living the crunchy con way and a passionate affirmation of those things that give our lives weight and measure. In chapters dedicated to food, religion, consumerism, education, and the environment, Dreher shows how to live in a way that preserves what Kirk called the permanent things, among them faith, family, community, and a legacy of ancient truths. This, says Dreher, is the kind of roots conservatism that more and more Americans want to practice. And in Crunchy Cons , he lets them know how far they are from being alone. A Crunchy Con Manifesto 1. We are conservatives who stand outside the conservative mainstream; therefore, we can see things that matter more clearly. 2. Modern conservatism has become too focused on money, power, and the accumulation of stuff, and insufficiently concerned with the content of our individual and social character. 3. Big business deserves as much skepticism as big government. 4. Culture is more important than p

Educating the 'Right' Way

Educating the 'Right' Way
$29.95

''Educating the ''Right'' Way'' provided a detailed and systematic critical analysis of the growing power of conservative movements in educational policy and practice.. Since its publication, the worrisome trends it analyzes have worsened and have come into the very center of education in countries throughout the world. In this revised edition, noted scholar Michael Apple reflects on how many of the new wave of conservative policies and reforms that have come to the forefront of education debates since the book was published--No Child Left Behind, the increase in homeschooling, and more recent debates on anti-evolutionism. This thoroughly revised edition of ''Educating the ''Right'' Way ''will bring us up to date on what are now clearly lasting transformations in the movements, ideologies, assumptions, structures, and practices of education. The education envisioned by these emphases moves us in directions that are deeply worrisome for anyone committed to an education that is worthy of its name. By providing a detailed and even higher critical examination of what is currently happening and by pointing to ways in which it might be interrupted, this edition can assist us in challenging what is increasingly becoming a dangerous commonsense in education.
