"Beating the CSET!" will help both pre-service and practicing teachers in California pass the CSET Multiple Subjects Subtests I - III. Because passing the CSET Multiple Subjects test is now required for an elementary credential in California, this new text has been designed to address the essential time-management methods, essay and multiple-choice strategies, and content that test takers must master in order to pass Subtests One through Three of the exam. Unlike other preparation books, this text does not simply offer a copy of MSAT materials. Instead, the content, constructed-response and multiple-choice strategies, and special time-management models for the tests are all research based and tailored to CSET Multiple Subject content in great detail. People who used "Beating the CSET!" report: "I took all three sections of the CSET and passed- the first time! The invaluable time-management, scoring, essay and multiple-choice approaches all worked for each of the subtests, and the content is in abundance. I know for a fact that "Beating the CSET!" is the reason that I passed. Based on my success, I strongly recommend this book to everyone." "Sarah S., elementary teacher, McSwain Elementary School District" ""Beating the CSET!" helped me to manage my time during the test and provided guidelines and strategies that were helpful in making sure that I achieved a passing score. It also provided additional information as well as other resources to aide in my preparation. I highly recommend this text to anyone who wants to be prepared to pass this test the first time."

First released in the Spring of 1999, How People Learn has been expanded to show how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and practice, now making a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning. Like the original edition, this book offers exciting new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from non-experts? What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods--to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. Topics include: How learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain. How existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn. What the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach. The amazing learning potential of infants. The relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace. Learning needs and opportunities for teachers. A realistic look at the role of technology in education.
