EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Today's children will forge careers that look nothing like those their parents and grandparents knew. Even the definitions of "career" and "job" are changing as people create new businesses and services. Although these changes are well underway, our education system in the U.S. lags behind and still subscribes to the idea that content is king. This exclusive focus on content is reflected in what we test, how we teach, and even the toys we offer our children. Employers want to hire excellent communicators, critical thinkers, and innovators-in short, they want brilliant people. So what can we do, as parents, to help our children be brilliant and successful? Golinkoff and Hirsh-Pasek provide a science-based framework for how we should be teaching children in and outside of school. Using fun and engaging examples, the authors introduce the 6Cs-collaboration, communication, content, critical thinking, creative innovation, and confidence-along with tips to optimize children's development in each area. These skills will make up the straight-A report card for success in the 21st century. Book jacket.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Excerpt from Life and Letters of Sir Richard Claverhouse Jebb, O. M., Litt; D It now remains my pleasant duty to thank warmly Mr J. D. Duff of Trinity, who has most kindly and carefully gone through my proofs with me page by page, giving me much friendly and valued criticism, and Mr S. H. Butcher, who after reading the first type-written chapters gave me encouragement to go on with the more difficult part. Thanks are also due to the Rev. Dr Denney and Mr R. P. G. Williamson for their interesting recollections of Sir Richard Jebb as a teacher, and to the many friends who sent me letters. Whether or not these could be fitted into the fabric of the book, it was a great pleasure to me to read them. And I wish also to thank Mr R. T. Wright for the interest he has shown in the progress of the book and for his advice on technical points. Indeed all the officials at the Pitt Press have been most patient with my ignorance which must often have given them needless trouble. For nothing in the Life and Letters is Dr Verrall responsible. He has not yet seen them. I felt it the very greatest kindness and a great point gained when he consented to write the chapter on my husband's work as critic and scholar.
