The Hidden Half Audiobook

The Hidden Half

Author: Michael Blastland Narrator: Kris Dyer Release Date: October 2019

Why does one smoker die of lung cancer but another live to 100? The answer is 'The Hidden Half' - those random, unknowable variables that mess up our attempts to comprehend the world. We humans are very clever creatures - but we're idiots about how clever we really are. In this entertaining and ingenious book, Blastland reveals how in our quest to make the world more understandable, we lose sight of how unexplainable it often is. The result - from GDP figures to medicine - is that experts know a lot less than they think. Filled with compelling stories from economics, genetics, business, and science, The Hidden Half is a warning that an explanation which works in one arena may not work in another. Entertaining and provocative, it will change how you view the world. Highly original and challenging... Once you have read this book, you can't unread it. Source: Daniel Finkelstein, The Times Fascinating and provocative. Blastland is one of the most original thinkers around. Source: Tim Harford - Financial Times columnist and author of The Undercover Economist Elegantly written and mind-expanding, The Hidden Half will enthrall you with its storytelling while educating you with its scientific depth. Source: Daniel H. Pink - bestselling author of Drive Brilliant. Blastland provides an explanation of the need for humility in the face of the inevitable limits to knowledge and our all-too-human temptation to tell stories about the world that go far beyond what the evidence will support. Source: Diane Coyle - Bennett Professor of Public Policy, Cambridge University Fascinating... As John Wooden said, it's what you learn after you know it all that counts. Source: Andrew Gelman - author of Rich State Poor State Red State Blue State Excellent. Blastland makes a compelling case that God is fond of playing dice with the cosmos-and the list of unpredictable things keeps growing, not shrinking. Source: Phillip Tetlock - bestselling author of Superforecasting Beautifully written and often very funny. Anyone making decision that matter should enjoy this book and profit from its lessons.

Despite the Best Intentions: How Racial Inequality Thrives in Good Schools Audiobook

Despite the Best Intentions: How Racial Inequality Thrives in Good Schools

Author: Amanda E. Lewis, John B. Diamond Narrator: David Sadzin Release Date: October 2019

On the surface, Riverview High School looks like the post-racial ideal. Serving an enviably affluent, diverse, and liberal district, the school is well-funded, its teachers are well-trained, and many of its students are high achieving. Yet Riverview has not escaped the same unrelenting question that plagues schools throughout America: why is it that even when all of the circumstances seem right, black and Latino students continue to lag behind their peers? Through five years' worth of interviews and data-gathering at Riverview, John Diamond and Amanda Lewis have created a rich and disturbing portrait of the achievement gap that persists more than fifty years after the formal dismantling of segregation. As students progress from elementary school to middle school to high school, their level of academic achievement increasingly tracks along racial lines, with white and Asian students maintaining higher GPAs and standardized testing scores, taking more advanced classes, and attaining better college admission results than their black and Latino counterparts. An in-depth study with far-reaching consequences, Despite the Best Intentions revolutionizes our understanding of both the knotty problem of academic disparities and the larger question of the color line in American society.

Geeky Pedagogy: A Guide for Intellectuals, Introverts, and Nerds Who Want to Be Effective Teachers Audiobook

Geeky Pedagogy: A Guide for Intellectuals, Introverts, and Nerds Who Want to Be Effective Teachers

Author: Jessamyn Neuhaus Narrator: Randye Kaye Release Date: October 2019

Geeky Pedagogy is a funny, evidence-based, multidisciplinary, pragmatic, highly accessible guide to the process of learning and relearning how to be an effective college teacher. It is the first college teaching guide that encourages faculty to embrace their inner nerd, inviting listeners to view themselves and their teaching work in light of contemporary discourse that celebrates increasingly diverse geek culture and explores stereotypes about super-smart introverts. Geeky Pedagogy avoids the excessive jargon, humorlessness, and endless proscriptions that plague much published advice about teaching. Neuhaus is aware of how embodied identity and employment status shape one's teaching context, and she eschews formulaic depictions of idealized exemplar teaching, instead inviting listeners to join her in an engaging, critically reflective conversation about the vicissitudes of teaching and learning in higher education as a geek, introvert, or nerd. Written for the wonks and eggheads who want to translate their vast scholarly expertise into authentic student learning, Geeky Pedagogy is packed with practical advice and encouragement for increasing listeners' pedagogical knowledge.

Motivated: Designing Math Classrooms Where Students Want to Join In

Author: Ilana Seidel Horn Narrator: Ilana Seidel Horn Release Date: October 2019

Do your math students offer one or two-word responses in class? Participating in math class feels socially risky to students. Staying silent often feels safer. In Motivated, Ilana shows why certain teaching strategies create classroom climates where students want to join in. Five factors of motivational math classrooms She introduces six different math teachers, in a range of school settings, who found that motivation requires more than an interesting problem. Their experiences highlight five factors that lower the risks and raise the benefits of participation: Belongingness comes from students' frequent, pleasant interactions with their peers and teachers. Meaningfulness answers the question, "When are we going to use this?" Competence helps all students discover their mathematical strengths. Accountability inspires students to participate in classroom life. Autonomy produces learners with tools for making sense of their work and seeing it through.These features of motivational math classrooms are explored in-depth. You will find suggestions for identifying what impedes each factor, along with strategies for weaving them into your instruction. You will also be introduced to an online community who support each other's efforts to teach this way. A guidebook for motivating math students Motivated is a guidebook for teachers unsatisfied with questions met by silence. By examining what works in other classrooms and following the example of been-there teachers, you'll start changing slumped shoulders and blank stares into energetic, engaged learners.

Game of Mind Manipulation Audiobook

Game of Mind Manipulation

Author: Edwin Piers, Instafo Narrator: Instafo Release Date: October 2019

Win and Beat Manipulators at Their Own Games A game can be defined as "an activity that has rules for winning and losing." Contrarily, another definition of it is "to use those rules of an activity to get what you want, in a way that is dishonest." Whether you want to admit it, you are already playing a game called "life," and in it there are those who live by the latter definition - willing to cheat the game via manipulation. What is manipulation? It's the controlling of an individual through misleading means to get something that these manipulators want, whether money, power, relationship, or sex. Many people are victims of others' manipulative behaviors without realizing it, including you. Think about those people from your life ranging from families and friends to acquaintances and strangers you've met on the street. Were there times when you had a gut-wrenching feeling that something was wrong, and it turned out to be they were manipulating you? How did it make you feel? Confused? Angry? Miserable? Nobody likes being taken advantage of, but unfortunately it's a part of human nature to want to assert control over others as survival of the fittest. Being ignorant to that will only continue to make you a victim. But now you can do something about it by beating manipulators at their own mind games with "Game of Mind Manipulation." By taking a page out of their playbook, you'll be guided on the following: * Patterns for predicting manipulator's next move * Subtle manipulations going on behind the scene * Tactics to stop manipulator dead right in the track * In-depth look into the most pervasive mind games * Expert solutions for specific manipulative behaviors * And much more! Who said the game of life was going to be easy? While it may not always be ideal, it certainly can be won once you know all the right strategies to maneuver. Either you play it to win it, or get played by it to lose it. The choice is yours. Make your first move now, and checkmate!

Limitless Mind: Learn, Lead and Live Without Barriers Audiobook

Limitless Mind: Learn, Lead and Live Without Barriers

Author: Jo Boaler Narrator: Jo Boaler Release Date: September 2019

When we learn, we change what we believe and how we interact with the world. This changes who we are as people and what we can achieve. Many people grow up being told they are 'not a maths person' or perhaps 'not smart'. They come to believe their potential is limited. Now, however, the latest science has revealed that our identities are constantly in flux; when we learn new things, we can change our identities, increase our potential and broaden our capacity to receive new information. Drawing from the latest research, Professor Boaler followed thousands of school students, studied their learning practices and examined the most effective ways to transform pupils from low to high achievers. Throughout her study, Boaler has collaborated with Stanford University neuroscience experts, harnessing their expertise to reinforce her advanced understanding of learning and educational development. In Limitless Mind, Boaler presents original groundbreaking research that proves that limiting beliefs really do hold us back from fulfilling our potential and that with a few careful life hacks we can transform our potential for good.
