TEACH LIKE FINLAND


33 Simple Strategies for Joyful Classrooms
TIMOTHY D. WALKER
Foreword by PASI SAHLBERG, author of
Finnish Lessons
Finland shocked the world when its fifteen-year-olds scored
highest on the first Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), a set of tests
touted for evaluating critical-thinking skills in math, science, and reading. That was in 2001;
but even today, this tiny Nordic nation continues to amaze. How does Finnish education
with short school days, homework-free evenings, and little standardized testingproduce
students who match the PISA scores of high-powered, stressed-out kids in more
traditional education systems?
When Timothy D. Walker started teaching fifth graders at a Helsinki public school,
he began a search for the secrets behind the success of Finlands educational
system. Walker has already written about several of those discoveries, and his
The Atlantic article on this topic received more than 500,000 shares. Here, he
gathers all he has learned and reveals how teachers everywhere can implement
these simple practices, which integrate seamlessly with educational standards
in the United States and elsewhere.

TRANSGENDER CHILDREN
AND YOUTH
Cultivating Pride and Joy with Families in Transition
ELIJAH C. NEALY
Few teachers have been trained in areas of gender
identity and expression, even as the numbers of out
trans kids in school is increasing. Even an affirming and
well-meaning person needs some guidance. Elijah C.
Nealy, a workshop leader, school advocate, therapist,
pastor, former Deputy Director of NYCs LGBT
Community Center, and himself a trans man, covers all
aspects of the family constellation, school and mental
health issues, as well as physical, social, and emotional transitions.
This is an all-in-one essential guide for teachers that covers central topics about transgender
identity such as:
What are the best practices to create and maintain supportive, inclusive school
environments for transgender and gender-diverse youth?
How do I interact with parents around these issues?
Do I have a duty to disclose to parents what I might know about their childs gender
identity?
How do teachers handle school issues such as inclusive bathrooms?
How young do kids come out as trans?
Elijah C. Nealy, PhD, MDiv, LCSW, is Assistant Professor in the Department of
Social Work and Latino Community Practice at University of Saint Joseph in West
Hartford, CT. As an out transgender man, he has spent the past 25 years working
extensively within the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer communities.

STUDENT STRESS AT THE


TRANSITION TO MIDDLE SCHOOL
An A-Z Guide For Implementing an Emotional
Health Checkup
ANN VANDER STOEP & KELLY THOMPSON
Instead of waiting until a student fails, breaks down
emotionally or gets into trouble, school staff can proactively
identify students in need of additional academic, social or
problem-solving support. I wish there was a high school
version as well. This is a practical, comprehensive guide
that offers hope during a confusing age.
Samara Hoag, MN, RN, School Nurse, Seattle, WA
The transition to middle school is often fraught with new emotional, social, and academic
challenges for students. Often, teachers dont have the proper resources to identify students
for whom this transition is becoming a problem. In this book, Ann Vander Stoep and Kelly
Thompson provide teachers, counselors, and administrators with a complete package for
implementing the Emotional Health Checkup, a program designed to identify and help
middle school students who are in need of additional emotional support.
Readers will learn how to detect if a students stress has shifted from a manageable level
to an unhealthy distress level. They will then learn how to decide if the Emotional Health
Checkup is a good fit for their school and how to get the school on board to implement the
program.
The book is an A-to-Z guide on how to implement the Emotional Health Checkup once the
need and commitment have been confirmed. Information includes:
how to engage parents and guardians in
the process,

how to develop individualized student

This week I hit the jackpot. I discovered the work of Mary Helen
Immordino-Yang . . . [Her] research provides a powerful rationale for
pedagogy that centralizes the emotional and imaginative lives of
students. ImaginEd

EMOTIONS, LEARNING, AND THE BRAIN


Exploring the Educational Implications of Affective
Neuroscience
MARY HELEN IMMORDINO-YANG
Foreword by HOWARD GARDNER
Afterword by ANTONIO DAMASIO
Relevant, rigorous and, yes, revolutionary. It is the book every
teacher and parent, every policy maker and researcher, and
every citizen concerned with the future of American education
should read. Marcelo M. Surez-Orozco, Wasserman Dean &
Distinguished Professor of Education, UCLA Graduate School of
Education & Information Studies
A revolution in neuroscience over the past decade has overturned early notions that emotions
interfere with learning, revealing instead that emotion and cognition are supported by heavily
interdependent neurological processes. This has important implications for education and
pedagogy. It offers insights into how, when, and why students learn meaningfully (or dont), how
technology, culture, and social relationships shape learning, and how teachers can understand
and utilize emotions more productively in the classroom. Here, those insights are illuminated for
those who need them most: classroom teachers, administrators, and curriculum planners.
What are feelings, and how does the brain support them? What role do feelings play in the
brains learning process? This book unpacks these crucial questions and many more, including:
the neurobiological, developmental and evolutionary origins of creativity,
facts and myths about mirror neurons,
and how the perspective of social and affective neuroscience can inform the design of
learning technologies.
Emotions, Learning, and the Brain is the educators foray into the neurobiology of emotion. It is a
game-changing book that will transform the way teachers think about learning.
Mary Helen Immordino-Yang, EdD, is an Associate Professor of Education,
Psychology, and Neuroscience at the University of Southern California (USC),
where she conducts research at the Brain and Creativity Institute and teaches at
the USC Rossier School of Education. She has received numerous national awards
for her research, communication of science to the public, and societal impact.
Immordino-Yang is among an elite list of American scholars named by education
policy maven Rick Hess of the American Enterprise Institute in his 2014 Edu-Scholar rankings of
those whose work has most influenced the national discourse on education.

resource for educators on:
how mental health disorders are diagnosed and treated,
how they tend to manifest at school,
and how they affect students emotions, behaviors, and ability to learn.
Readers will learn the differences between normal child and adolescent behaviors and
behaviors that reflect underlying mental health disorders, and will recognize where these
behaviors fall on a spectrum, ranging from behavioral (planned, volitional acts that clearly
have a function) to the clinical (where a mental health disorder is causing the behavior).
Teachers will learn how to communicate effectively with their school teams and student
families to ensure that school mental health staff (psychologists, social workers, counselors,
and nurses) will be able to provide appropriate interventions for students in need.
Administrators will learn the importance of creating a district mental health plan that
clearly defines the roles of teachers, mental health staff, principals, and others, with the
goal of establishing a seamless system of coordinated professionals all working to meet the
students needs.
William Dikel, MD, a child and adolescent psychiatrist who assists school

SENSORY PROCESSING CHALLENGES


Effective Clinical Work with Kids & Teens
LINDSEY BIEL
Sensory Processing Challenges clearly explains the often unrecognized
connection between many behavior problems and sensitivity to sensory
stimuli that the child simply cannot tolerate. . . . I know firsthand how
distracting, disruptive, and painful sensory issues can be. Lindsey Biel
provides loads of much-needed practical advice to help children with
sensory challenges. Temple Grandin, author of The Autistic Brain and
Thinking in Pictures
Many children and teens suffer from sensory challenges, meaning that
they have unusual reactions to certain sensory experiences that most of
us find commonplace. These challenges can range from moderate to severefrom an aversion to
bright lights, to stopping short in panic every time a loud noise or siren is heard.
Accompanying these sensory issuesthe full-blown version of which is called sensory processing
disorder (SPD)can be a range of behavioral problems like OCD and anxiety, and more severely,
Aspergers and autism. This book equips readers with all the information they need to know to
accurately identify sensory sensitivities in children:
how to pay attention to sensory issues and recognize when a child is struggling;
how these issues factor into the behavioral problems at hand;
and how best to partner with the right professionals to help kids at home and in school.
