The overarching objective of A Student's Guide to Hearsay is to help students sort out the complexities of the hearsay rule, its exceptions, and the Sixth Amendment Confrontation Clause. For each exception, this book: • Outlines the policies underlying the exception; • Lists and explains the requirements that must be satisfied for evidence to be admitted under the exception; • Explains additional issues that have arisen or are likely to arise; • Explains how the rule interacts with other rules ; • Discusses tactical and procedural considerations that must be understood to appreciate how the rule plays in court; and • Provides review questions and answers that allow students to test their understanding and applications of the rules. The book also includes humorous references addressing the hearsay significance of a ham sandwich, Humpty Dumpty, the Greek god of wine, Tim McGraw, dog saliva, Derek Jeter, a squeaky boot, Leonardo DiCaprio, the French Army, the speed of sound, Commander Data, and the Chicago Cubs. The 4th edition is based on the text of the restyled Federal Rules of Evidence that will become effective December 1, 2011. It includes a detailed discussion of every Supreme Court Confrontation Clause decision from Crawford to Bryant, and also discusses the Bullcoming case which the Court will probably decide sometime this year. It includes a link to the author's web page on which updates to the Guide will be posted.

Knowing how to post bail and get out of jail in fifteen minutes is darn handy for almost everyone. For a disoriented 18-year-old who's found himself in a pinch, it's downright necessary. College kids are naïve, eager, and prone to trouble, and whether they're funneling beer or fighting sweatshop labor, they need to know their rights. Just logging onto the university computer system, for example, opens a student to a host of legal questions about whether the school can monitor her email or her surfing habits or her blogs. But the amount of practical legal information available to the nation's 15 million college students is extremely limited and most students don't have ready access to lawyers. What they need is a handbook that will cover the issues they're likely to confront, a guide that is informative, easy to read, and not embarrassing to have on their shelves. With a retro look and a humorous, approachable tone, THE COLLEGE STUDENT'S GUIDE TO THE LAW provides legal explanations, strategies for steering clear of problems, and detailed instructions about how to deal with the authorities—both educational and municipal—when trouble can't be avoided. The book is divided into sections for easy access to information: "The Law in the Classroom" offers guidance on academic dishonesty, grading grievances, and professor-student relations. "The Law On Campus" discusses problems outside the classroom but on university turf, from privacy rights (whether in the dorms, on a hard drive, or in the Registrar's Office) to interactions with campus security. "The Law Off Campus" provides advice on dealing with legal issues that are endemic to university life such as underage drinking policies, landlord-tenant disputes, and credit-card use and abuse. THE COLLEGE STUDENT'S GUIDE TO THE LAW ranks with the shower caddy, the extra-long twin sheet set, and the mini fridge as an absolutely indispensable item for every college freshman. And every returning student who might contest a grade, plan a campus protest, or sign an apa

A groundbreaking manifesto about what our nation’s top schools should be—but aren’t—providing: “The ex-Yale professor effectively skewers elite colleges, their brainy but soulless students (those ‘sheep’), pushy parents, and admissions mayhem” (People). As a professor at Yale, William Deresiewicz saw something that troubled him deeply. His students, some of the nation’s brightest minds, were adrift when it came to the big questions: how to think critically and creatively and how to find a sense of purpose. Now he argues that elite colleges are turning out conformists without a compass. Excellent Sheep takes a sharp look at the high-pressure conveyor belt that begins with parents and counselors who demand perfect grades and culminates in the skewed applications Deresiewicz saw firsthand as a member of Yale’s admissions committee. As schools shift focus from the humanities to “practical” subjects like economics, students are losing the ability to think independently. It is essential, says Deresiewicz, that college be a time for self-discovery, when students can establish their own values and measures of success in order to forge their own paths. He features quotes from real students and graduates he has corresponded with over the years, candidly exposing where the system is broken and offering clear solutions on how to fix it. “Excellent Sheep is likely to make…a lasting mark….He takes aim at just about the entirety of upper-middle-class life in America….Mr. Deresiewicz’s book is packed full of what he wants more of in American life: passionate weirdness” (The New York Times).

In Learning Targets, Connie M. Moss and Susan M. Brookhart contend that improving student learning and achievement happens in the immediacy of an individual lesson--what they call "today's lesson"—or it doesn't happen at all. The key to making today's lesson meaningful? Learning targets. Written from students' point of view, a learning target describes a lesson-sized chunk of information and skills that students will come to know deeply. Each lesson's learning target connects to the next lesson's target, enabling students to master a coherent series of challenges that ultimately lead to important curricular standards. Drawing from the authors' extensive research and professional learning partnerships with classrooms, schools, and school districts, this practical book - Situates learning targets in a theory of action that students, teachers, principals, and central-office administrators can use to unify their efforts to raise student achievement and create a culture of evidence-based, results-oriented practice. - Provides strategies for designing learning targets that promote higher-order thinking and foster student goal setting, self-assessment, and self-regulation. - Explains how to design a strong performance of understanding, an activity that produces evidence of students' progress toward the learning target. - Shows how to use learning targets to guide summative assessment and grading. Learning Targets also includes reproducible planning forms, a classroom walk-through guide, a lesson-planning process guide, and guides to teacher and student self-assessment. What students are actually doing during today's lesson is both the source of and the yardstick for school improvement efforts. By applying the insights in this book to your own work, you can improve your teaching expertise and dramatically empower all students as stakeholders in their own learning.
