Gutman Library Virtual Book Talk - Sister Resisters: Mentoring Black Women on Campus

Gutman Library Janie Victoria Ward, Ed.M.'81, Ed.D.'86, and Tracy L. Robinson-Wood, Ed.M.'83, Ed.D.'88, experts in the developmental and identity challenges of young people of color, provide guidance for the faculty, advisors, and administrators (typically white women) who invest in the success of this historically underserved student group. Through case studies, student narratives, and research findings, the authors document the specific deterrents young Black women face daily on campus, from cultural pressures and class bias to racist and misogynistic microaggressions. Suggesting evidence-based strategies that promote healthy resistance to negative social and political experiences, Sister Resisters equips both mentors and mentees with thoughtfully designed, culturally informed skills that can further educational, racial, and gender equality on campus.

Gutman Library Virtual Book Talk: The Voices of the Trees

Gutman Library Dive into a parallel world of the lives of trees where they show us how we humans harm nature, living beings, resources, the climate, being part of the same ecosystem and causing great damage to our planet. The trees teach us to be more caring and collaborative with our environment through six different stories developed in a different country within the Americas in different contexts such as a plaza, a park, a school, a museum, and a nature reserve. This book will help children discover different relevant aspects of global citizenship, a theme that has been recognized as a priority for the curricula of a new educational paradigm.

Gutman Library Virtual Book Talk - How Teaching Happens: Seminal Works in Teaching and Teacher Effectiveness and What They Mean in Practice

Gutman Library Building on their bestselling book How Learning Happens, Paul Kirschner and Carl Hendrick are joined by Jim Heal, Ed.L.D.'19, to explore how teaching happens. The book seeks to closely examine what makes for effective teaching in the classroom and how research on expert teaching can be used in practice. Introducing 30 seminal works from the field of education psychology research, the learning sciences, and teaching effectiveness studies, each chapter takes an important work and illustrates clearly and concisely what the research means and how it can be used in daily practice. Written by three leading experts in the field with illustrations by Oliver Cavigioli, How Teaching Happens provides a clear roadmap for classroom teachers, school leaders and teacher trainers/trainees on what effective teaching looks like in practice.
