Publisher: Teachers College Press
How can we promote the learning and well-being of all students, especially those who come from some of the most disadvantaged backgrounds? Anindya Kundu argues that we can fight against deeply rooted inequalities in the American educational system by harnessing student agency—each person’s unique capacity for positive change. To make his case, Kundu draws powerful narratives from a population of individuals who beat the odds to become academically and professionally successful. These strivers have overcome challenges such as broken families, homelessness, unexpected pregnancies, forms of abuse, incarceration, and more, to make it in the world. But it wasn’t simply individualism, tenacity, resilience, or grit that helped them. Rather, as Kundu illustrates, it was a combination of social and cultural supports that paved the path towards their dreams, harnessing the inherent power of their agency. “Kundu’s book is much more than simply an academic contribution to the vast literature on education and social mobility. If his core ideas are taken seriously, this book can serve as a resource to educators, policymakers, community advocates, and others who seek to address the educational needs of vulnerable and disadvantaged students.” —From the Foreword by Pedro A. Noguera, distinguished professor of education, Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, UCLA

Author: Laurence Smith
This book is designed to build the confidence of adult learners and to present strategies for basic skills such as classroom learning, studying, reading, notetaking, time management, and test taking. Rather than saying, ''here's how you did it in high school, and here's how you do it now'', the focus is: ''here are your assumptions about what you think you need to do to succeed... here's what you really need to be concerned about... and here's what to do to deal with academic and personal adjustments on your life.''

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.
