Paths to College and Career Jossey-Bass and PCG Education are proud to bring the Paths to College and Career English Language Arts (ELA) curriculum and professional development resources for grades 6–12 to educators across the country. Originally developed for EngageNY and written with a focus on the shifts in instructional practice and student experiences the standards require, Paths to College and Career includes daily lesson plans, guiding questions, recommended texts, scaffolding strategies and other classroom resources. The Paths Writing Units, Argument Writing, Informative Writing, and Narrative Writing, complement the full instructional program and can also be used independently, providing in-depth writing instruction to support all students in grades 9–12 in meeting grade level standards. To emphasize the relationship between reading and writing, each Writing Unit includes accessible model texts that exemplify key elements of each text type, and source texts that provide a topic for the unit writing assignment. Individual lessons guide students through the writing process, providing instruction on grammar and conventions and highlighting collaboration and reflection as key elements of effective writing. Students' final essays are assessed using a checklist developed by the class over the course of the unit. The organization and distinctive content of the model and source texts in each unit afford teachers the flexibility to implement each unit independently of the others, and at any point during the curriculum. For example, a unit may be implemented to assess students' writing prior to implementation of the standard curriculum, to scaffold writing instruction leading into a writing assessment, or to support struggling writers by addressing gaps in skills as demonstrated in previous assessments. The Paths Writing Units provide teachers with invaluable opportunities to engage students as active participants in their own learning at every stage of the writing process, and to customize instruction to meet the varying needs of all students.

Две наиболее наглядные и важные тенденции в высшем образовании сегодня – это увеличение затрат на него и стремительное развитие онлайн-обучения. Может ли распространение онлайн-курсов замедлить рост стоимости обучения в колледже и помочь разрешить кризис доступности высшего образования? В этой небольшой и толковой книге Уильям Боуэн, бывший президент Принстонского университета, один из ведущих экспертов, работающих на стыке педагогики и экономики, объясняет, почему, несмотря на свой прежний скептицизм, теперь он полагает, что современные технологии способны снизить затраты на обучение студентов без ущерба для качества образования. Боуэн рассматривает широкий спектр инициатив в области обучения и преподавания, основанных на новых технологиях, в том числе популярные массовые открытые онлайнкурсы (МООК), и утверждает, что такие технологии могут трансформировать традиционное высшее образование, позволив в конце концов снизить его стоимость и увеличить производительность без ущерба для качества и ключевых ценностей. Но организационные, философские и технологические вызовы весьма велики. В частности, необходимо привести веские доказательства того, является ли онлайн-образование рентабельным в различных учреждениях, переосмыслить структуру управления и принятия решений в высшем образовании, а также разработать настраиваемые под индивидуальные потребности пользователей технологические платформы. Тем не менее Боуэн сохраняет оптимизм, полагая, что потенциальный выигрыш очень велик.

«Практическая цель педагогики состоит в том, чтобы научить человека понимать и создавать самого себя: воспитывать себя как лидера в этом мире, развивать в себе способность и умение побеждать. Сильная личность – это вопрос не только генетического типа. Так как ген дается от природы, то сила – как энергия, темперамент, ум, чувствительность – также идет от природы. Однако существование этой сильнейшей по сравнению с другими энергии порождает вопрос о способе ее воспитания. Определяющую роль в этом играют школа, семья, общество, но особенно важно, чтобы эта сила дополнялась редким умом, обогащенным культурой и постоянной подготовкой. Именно от воспитания зависит, кем станет субъект – великим преступником или великим политиком».
