What would classrooms look like if teachers asked fewer questions and students asked more?The authors of Make Just One Change argue that formulating one's own questions is "the single most essential skill for learning"-and one that should be taught to all students. They also maintain that it should be taught in the simplest way possible. Drawing on twenty years of experience, the authors present the Question Formulation Technique, a concise and powerful protocol that enables learners to produce their own questions, improve their questions, and strategize how to use them.Make Just One Change features the voices and experiences of teachers in classrooms across the country to illustrate the use of the Question Formulation Technique across grade levels and subject areas and with different kinds of learners.

"Can you give me the book that will tell me how to DO Christian education?" The Nuts & Bolts of Christian Education is designed to answer the most frequently asked questions by new as well as veteran teachers and leaders. Even though most churches provide teacher and leader training at least once a year, generally these one- or two-day sessions are unable to answer every question that arises during the year. The Nuts & Bolts of Christian Education is a practical guidebook that leads new and experienced teachers through the challenging, and sometimes confounding, landscape of the education ministry of a congregation. This is not a collection of lesson plans--it is a chock-full survey of nearly every aspect of Christian education one could imagine. DOING Christian Education starts here.

In today's American college classrooms, more and more international students are enrolling at a rapid pace. This happened in my classroom sevearl years ago. I had taught for over twenty years at the time, but I did not know how to approach these students who possessed varying levels of English proficiency. My traditional methods did not work, and all I could do was speak louder-as if an increased volume would increase their learning. Because I considered teaching a vocation, I did not want to give up. Instead, I enrolled in a doctoral program in Adult Education and chose Teaching English as a Second Language as my Cognate. In one of my doctoral classes, I had to do a research project. I decided to conduct interviews with my new students and simply ask them how they prefrred to learn how to speak and write in english. The results fascinated me! Based on what they told me and what I found in the literature, I totally revamped my composition classes. Gone were the days of lecture! Instead, with student input, I created a film based approach to teaching writing that seemed to emancipate my students, and they became proficient writers of English! Along the way, I was emancipated, too, and I knew that my classes would never be the same. This book is a result of my experience,and I hope it can be used as a jumping off point for positive change for any college composition teacher who truly cares if their students learn!
