Product Description

About the Author

Stuart Shanker is a Distinguished Research Professor of Philosophy and Psychology at York University. Dr. Shanker is currently serving as Director of the Milton and Ethel Harris Research Initiative (MEHRI) at York University, a privately funded initiative whose goal is to build on new knowledge of the brain’s development, and help set children (including those with developmental disorders) on the path towards emotional and intellectual health.

 

Dr. Shanker has just been appointed the Director of EPIC: an international initiative created to promote the educational potential in children by enhancing their self-regulation. He has served as the Director of the Council of Human Development for the past ten years; Director of the Canada-Cuba Research Alliance for the past six years; and he was the first President of the Council of Early Child Development in Canada. Over the past decade he has served as an advisor on early child development to government organizations across Canada and the US and countries around the world, among them Australia, Colombia, England, Ireland, Macedonia, Madagascar, Mexico, Northern Ireland, Peru, Romania and Serbia. Most notable among these is his involvement in the creation of the new early learning program in Ontario (viz. "The Pascal Report," for which he also wrote the preface).

Format: Paperback
Did we really need another book about how to help children in school? We certainly needed this book, and Professor Shanker has done a superb job putting a rather difficult and complex new approach - the science of self-regulation - into language that is easy to understand; the content of the book is profound in its implications and a tremendously rich resource for teachers who are doing their best to help students with self-regulation challenges. The book is giving us hope that with the right techniques we can make a difference and help children develop skills that can make a significant difference to their academic and social progress.I highly recommend the book to all teachers and parents (notwithstanding that it was written primarily with teachers in mind).

I am absolutely embracing the ideas in this book. The straight forward strategies and immediate workable solutions are useable and easy to implement. A must for the teacher or parent who is looking for (proactive) solutions to help children deal with their emotions and self-regulate.

I first heard about Calm, Alert and Learning on CBC Radio interview show and ordered it right away. It really is the way to work with kids. With 30 years at college and university teaching level, I tried ONE day of substitute teaching in a noisy, out of control 6th grade US class room. Never again! I am currently up in Canada with my grandson, 3 and granddaugther, 18 mos working at the kitchen table with Pre K stuff and lots of crafts. Shanker's book immediately reminded me of what it could and should be like for these kids when they start "real" school. If it isn't, well, we may just all be gathered 'round the kitchen table again - calm, alert and learning. Judith Carruthers, Kanata, Ontario.

This text is easy to read as a teacher the scenarios are experienced by most teachers and the strategies are useful and require planning to implement. The success needs evaluation over time.
