Statistics: The Art and Science of Learning from Data

Statistics: The Art and Science of Learning from Data, Global Edition

Title: Statistics: The Art and Science of Learning from Data, Global Edition

Authors: Agresti, Franklin, Kingenburg
English | 2017 | ISBN: 1292164778, 1292164875 | 816 Pages


Statistics:  Fourth Edition, takes a conceptual approach, helping students understand what statistics is about and learning the right questions to ask when analyzing data, rather than just memorizing procedures. This book takes the ideas that have turned statistics into a central science in modern life and makes them accessible, without compromising the necessary rigor. Students will enjoy reading this book, and will stay engaged with its wide variety of real-world data in the examples and exercises.

The authors believe that it’s important for students to learn and analyze both quantitative and categorical data. As a result, the text pays greater attention to the analysis of proportions than many other introductory statistics texts. Concepts are introduced first with categorical data, and then with quantitative data.

MyStatLab™ not included. Students, if MyStatLab is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MyStatLab should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.

MyStatLab is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment product designed to personalize learning and improve results. With a wide range of interactive, engaging, and assignable activities, students are encouraged to actively learn and retain tough course concepts.

Bridging the Skills Gap

Title: Bridging the Skills Gap: Innovations in Africa and Asia

Editors: Jayaram, S., Munge, W., Adamson, B., Sorrell, D., Jain, N. (Eds.)
Springer | English | February 2017 | ISBN-10: 331949483X | 148 pages

Highlights the importance of generating new knowledge on skills at the secondary level
Provides innovative models for skills delivery
Synthesizes important lessons from six case studies

This volume seeks toexamine the skills development agenda for youth by exploring two key questions for sustainable livelihoods: What are the skills needed for employability in developing countries, especially in Africa and Asia? And, what skills are currently possessed by students and secondary school leavers? An introductory chapter will set the stage for the discussion and analysis to follow by reviewing in broad terms the current research on relevant topics such as global youth unemployment, the relationship between skills and economic growth, and the expansion of secondary education. The following chapters synthesize a series of background studies focused on Africa, South Asia and South-East Asia, including both a general overview and an in-depth look at several countries. The chapters introduce innovative models for skills delivery, and highlight some of the key elements of successful skills models, including multi-stakeholder partnerships, updated pedagogy, and innovative financing mechanisms. Each of the five core chapters of the book covers one theme, with the support of case studies to illustrate successes, challenges, and lessons in real world examples.

Better Learning Through Structured Teaching

Better Learning Through Structured Teaching: A Framework for the Gradual Release of Responsibility, 2nd EditionTitle: Better Learning Through Structured Teaching: A Framework for the Gradual Release of Responsibility, 2nd Edition
Authors: Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey
English | ISBN: 1416616292 | 2013 | 158 pages

In this updated 2nd edition of the ASCD best-seller, Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey dig deeper into the hows and whys of the gradual release of responsibility instructional framework. To gradually release responsibility is to equip students with what they need to be engaged and self-directed learners. On a day-to-day level, it means delivering lessons purposefully planned to incorporate four essential and interrelated instructional phases:

1. Focused Instruction: Preparing students for learning by establishing lesson purpose, modeling strategies and skills, thinking aloud, and noticing how students respond.
2. Guided Instruction: Strategically using prompts, cues, and questions to lead students to new understanding.
3. Collaborative Learning: Allowing students to consolidate their understanding through exploration, problem-solving, discussion, and thinking with their peers.
4. Independent Learning: Requiring students to use the skills and knowledge they’ve acquired to create authentic products and ask new questions.

The authors explore each phase, using real-life examples from a variety of disciplines. You’ll find tips and tools for classroom implementation, including checklists for planning and assessment; advice on feedback, homework, group work, differentiated instruction, and blended learning; answers to frequently asked questions; and examples that align to Common Core State Standards. No matter what grade level or subject you teach, Better Learning Through Structured Teaching is your essential guide to helping students expand their capacity for successful and long-lasting learning.

Intentional and Targeted Teaching

Title: Intentional and Targeted Teaching : A Framework for Teacher Growth and Leadership

Authors: Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey
English | 2016 | ISBN: 1416621113 | 200 Pages

Intentional and Targeted Teaching : A Framework for Teacher Growth and LeadershipWhat is FIT Teaching? What is a FIT Teacher?

The Framework for Intentional and Targeted Teaching® or FIT Teaching® is a research-based, field-tested, and experience-honed process that captures the essentials of the best educational environments. In contrast to restrictive pedagogical prescriptions or formulas, FIT Teaching empowers teachers to adapt the most effective planning, instructional, and assessment practices to their particular context in order to move their students learning from where it is now to where it should be. To be a FIT Teacher is to make a heroic commitment to learning not just to the learning of every student in the classroom, but to the professional learning necessary to grow, inspire, and lead.

This book introduces the powerful FIT Teaching Tool, which harnesses the FIT Teaching approach and presents a detailed continuum of growth and leadership. It’s a close-up look at what intentional and targeting teaching is and what successful teachers do to

– Plan with purpose
– Cultivate a learning climate
– Instruct with intention
– Assess with a system
– Impact student learning

Designed to foster discussion among educators about what they are doing in the classroom, the FIT Teaching Tool can be used by teachers for self-assessment; by teacher peers for collegial feedback in professional learning communities; by instructional coaches to focus on the skills teachers need both onstage and off; and by school leaders to highlight their teachers strengths and value. Join authors Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, and Stefani Arzonetti Hite for an examination of what makes great teachers great, and see how educators at all grade levels and all levels of experience are taking intentional steps toward enhanced professional practice.
