Education's Highest Aim : Teaching and Learning through a Spirituality of Communion.

Father Michael Himes, a priest of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn, New York. Fr. Himes is a theologian currently teaching theology at Boston College in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. He served as professor and academic dean of the Seminary of Immaculate Conception on Long Island, New York, and as associate professor of theology at the University of Notre Dame.

Learning Teaching has been one of the most popular and widely-used guides to ELT since it first appeared in 1994. Learning Teaching informs the reader succinctly without over informing, proposes rather than demands, offers choices rather than single all-purpose solutions, and above all instils the confidence that 'I can learn to do this well'. The book is primarily aimed at teachers starting out on a training course or in their first year or two of work, but I hope that you will find something interesting in it wherever you are in your career.

Learning and Teaching in Higher Education: The Reflective Professional. The book is divided into three major sections: learning and teaching in higher education, design for teaching and evaluating and improving quality. The first section, learning and teaching in higher education, includes chapters that introduces readers to what is teaching from an adult perspective, how students learn, student centric versus teacher centric learning, and the practice and philosophical approaches to teaching and learning from a higher education perspective.

Teaching children according to their individual learning style does not achieve better results and should be. .It is hard to establish the cost to the education system of using learning styles.

Teaching children according to their individual learning style does not achieve better results and should be ditched by schools in favour of evidence-based practice, according to leading scientists. Thirty eminent academics from the worlds of neuroscience, education and psychology have signed a letter to the Guardian voicing their concern about the popularity of the learning style approach among some teachers. No evidence to back idea of learning styles Letter. Some schools have it as part of their teaching ethos whereas others bring in external consultants or send teachers on training courses.

James Paul Gee. Addressing readers at the start of his compelling new book, James Paul Gee writes, 'I want to talk about video games-yes, even violent video games-and say some positive things about them. With this simple but explosive salvo, one of America's most well-respected pro-fessors of education looks seriously at the unexpected good that can come from playing video games. Gee is interested in the cognitive development that can occur when someone is trying to escape a maze, find a hidden treasure, or even blast away an enemy with a high-powered rifle.

Since A Nation at Risk in 1983, the problem of education in the United States has occupied a prominent space in the media, in the halls of government, and in the lives of those most involved in schools. After twenty-five years of inquiry, experimentation, debate and legislation such as No Child Left Behind, the problems seem as insoluble now as then. Education's Highest Aim presents the thoughts and experiences of researchers, students, teachers, administrators, parents, and other stakeholders who have applied a theoretical and practical framework derived from Chiara Lubich's spirituality of communion to their various scenes of teaching and learning. Education's Highest Aim offers proven and effective ways of dealing with the problematic realities found in primary, elementary, secondary, and university education.

Education's Highest Aim includes chapters that present:* tensions inherent in understanding moral identity in the field of education* the principal features of an education of communion, and its relevance in the contemporary educational milieu* the history of the Focolare Movement and education* case studies that illustrate strategies for negotiating the basic tensions in the educational experience* accounts of successful elementary, secondary, and post-secondary schools organized around the basic principles of an education of communion* primary sources concerning an education of communion

Education's Highest Aim will be valuable for anyone interested in understanding and improving education: teachers' groups; school administrators; university courses in curriculum, instruction, or educational foundations; parents' organizations; developers of public policy.

Michael James, Thomas Masters, Amy Uelmen. Educations's Highest Aim: Teaching and Learning through a Spirituality of Communion. This book for educators demonstrates the practical benefits from a particularly Christian humanistic approach to education. Based on the Focolare Movement's praxis extracted from its founder Chiara Lubich's writings, the examples cover a wide variety of educational venues and learning styles. The basic approach is easily understood by kindergartners and applicable by Ph.D.'s. These selected case studies are worthy reading for all educators in public and private schools, charter and homeschools. Thumbs up.

In the spirit of full disclosure, let me say up front that Edu. Highest Aim is the most extraordinary wriitten literature on education's purpose that I, a a scholar, have ever read. The rare ability of the authors' and Tom Masters' writing brought me to feel I was taught a life's worth of confirming why I teach in America and in places I teach throughout the world. I learned to see with new eyes and a renewed hope that this book responds to the most important questions in the education field. Hearing Tom Masters present his book at DePaul's annual Doctoral conference was like being in the room with the greatest teachers history has given us.
