Summary

Schools Of To-morrow and The Schools of Utopia argue that education and learning are social and interactive processes, and thus the school itself is a social institution through which social reform can and should take place. Students should thrive in an environment where they are allowed to experience and interact with the curriculum, and all students should have the opportunity to take part in their own learning._x000D_ John Dewey (1859-1952) is one of the primary figures associated with the philosophy of pragmatism and is considered one of the founders of functional psychology. His ideas have been influential in education and social reform. Known for his advocacy of democracy, Dewey considered two fundamental elements—schools and civil society—to be major topics needing attention and reconstruction to encourage experimental intelligence and plurality._x000D_ Excerpt:_x000D_ "What is learned in school is at the best only a small part of education, a relatively superficial part; and yet what is learned in school makes artificial distinctions in society and marks persons off from one another. Consequently we exaggerate school learning compared with what is gained in the ordinary course of living." (Schools Of To-morrow)_x000D_

    This is a 2-book bundle, which has the following topics: Book 1: Where do you go if your child is gifted? Should you do anything differently? This question lies at the heart of this book, as well as other sub-topics that relate to it. Your knowledge will increase about giftedness, and solutions will be provided for a problematic child who is looking for the right therapist. Someone with an expert opinion and degree in psychology could definitely be beneficial to your child’s development. In this book, we’ll break down what to look for in a therapist like that. One particular topic in this book is asynchronous development in children. This term refers to an unequal intellectual, physical, and psychological development. This is typical in gifted children, because their intellect may be way ahead of their physique or emotional maturity. And this can cause both opportunities and problems. Last but not least, this guide will address the issue of choosing the right teacher or class for you child. You don’t want your son or daughter to be stuck with a bad teacher, so this book can help you become more selective and weed out the bad ones. Book 2: Gifted children are typically a bit more advanced in their thinking, but they still need to be taught how to apply that intelligence towards practical goals. This is where problem-solving skills come in. This book devotes at least one chapter to that topic. Aside from that, there are gold nuggets to be found about homework dilemma’s, dealing with depressive minds or sadness, and the existential, gloomy questions that lurk in a gifted person’s mind about the far-fetched problems in the world, or even in the universe. At the end of the book, we’ll take you to the most common things to look for in schools, and several programs that help gifted children grow faster academically, so they can reach their full potential.

    If you’re looking at a valuable bundle of two books, a combination of two titles, you’re at the right place. These are the topics in the two books: 
    Book 1: Anxiety is something we face every day, no matter how small or big the dosage may be. In this guide, several subtopics about anxiety will be covered. Among such are: 
    How we can recover from childhood neglect. Many of us, no matter how loving our parents tried to be, suffer from a lack of positive attention. We have often been neglected, and our needs have not been met, whether intentionally or unintentionally. Psychological science has indicated that this can cause detrimental effects and anxious feelings in a person’s later years. It doesn’t simply go away by itself. It needs to find a way out. Within this theme, the book sheds further light on steps and techniques to recover from such neglect. 
    Book 2: Well, there are several subjects that get covered in this book. For one, anxiety in relationships is a big topic in one of the chapters. Another thing you will learn is 10 different ways to reduce anxiety. Shyness is something some people struggle with, so we’ll touch on that too. 
    Aside from these topics, questions will be answered such as: 
    Is my anxiety common or do I have a disorder? 
    How do I handle anxiety attacks? 
    How do gain control emotional eating or binge eating? 
    How can I counter the anxiety that exists in our home during a crisis, such as the coronavirus? 
    These topics only scratch the surface of this short and simple guide, that will give you hidden gems of knowledge to help you on your journey towards more emotional intelligence and inner peace and tranquility in your life.
