Apart from all the studies being done, children apparently tend to show much more problems related to behavior and learning.
The need to find answers hasn’t provided parents and teachers with functional knowledge, but only an immense quantity of books and magazines dedicated to the topic.
The information and guidance provided in this book resumes more than 12 years of the Author experience as a Teacher and Professor in Europe and Asia with multiple and different subjects, and in levels ranging from Primary Schools to Universities, a background of extensive and intensive investigations on Learning Disabilities for Private Schools with highly positive results, but also experiences as a Director for Training Companies, among many others.
Known for providing significant results in situations that the Psychologists claim to have no answer, such as ADHD and Autism, as well as in turning ‘F’ students into ‘A’ students in a matter of weeks, what the Author here promotes can be seen as polemic and contradictory to modern theories on Education while also proven highly efficient.
When Buddha and many other Prophets stated that reality is only an illusion, they were at the same time explaining that only these elements are real. We may observe the material world but not the invisible elements composing it. They are Individuality, Intuition, Inspiration and Energy. The secret of life is based on these 3 Is directed by an E. In other words, power, wealth and success, request an individual purpose, a guided intuition, an inspired act and a directed energy to be obtained.
However, this energy can be either positive or negative, and this is what defines results within our life. This positive and negative energy transforms our soul and is the root of our karmic experience. Knowing how these four elements interact means more than an understanding about how the law of attraction works or who we are, because they represent the essence of life in the universe.
This said, the one that follows a negative energy, has a selfish individuality, an evil intuition and a diabolic inspiration, while the one following a positive energy has an altruistic desire, a sacred intuition and an enlightening inspiration. The difference in both paths defines not only what we achieve but also what we’re born to do. People choose the vibration of energy they wish to experience and, in doing so, they redefine their karma and shape their own future.
A deep understanding of how these elements function is what ultimately allows anyone to reach or not all their goals in life beyond the meaning of life itself and all its laws.
The conclusions presented here aren’t suggested or proposed as examples of a good teaching profile, but rather a description of a study motivated by the need to understand the power that some teachers conquer to themselves, apart from their skills to educate or pass good values, which can always certainly be questionable and should, especially taking into account that this profile seems to be common in unqualified teachers.
Based on the observation of different cases regarding teachers with different nationalities, it was concluded that those that are able to create a strong hierarchy inside the classroom tend to have more success and be more popular among students. But it was also concluded that a good teaching methodology has absolutely no effect without a strong hierarchy, and that a strong hierarchy can discard, or not, the use of different methodologies. Therefore, knowing which dominating rules are those proves to be crucial to any other teacher that wishes to obtain a more profound insight regarding his influence on students.
Many of those principles are related to the personality of the teacher, reason why it proves to be so difficult to identify them. For the purpose of this book, teachers from Europe and Asia were observed and interviewed, with the intention of finding the most evident rules that they follow, either aware or not of it, in order to create what is presented in the following chapters.
Based on the authors’ extensive experience in a range of settings in the United States and Canada, the book addresses the most common stumbling blocks to understanding social justice. This comprehensive resource includes new features such as a chapter on intersectionality and classism; discussion of contemporary activism (Black Lives Matter, Occupy, and Idle No More); material on White Settler societies and colonialism; pedagogical supports related to “common social patterns” and “vocabulary to practice using”; and extensive updates throughout.
Accessible to students from high school through graduate school, Is Everyone Really Equal? is a detailed and engaging textbook and professional development resource presenting the key concepts in social justice education. The text includes many user-friendly features, examples, and vignettes to not just define but illustrate the concepts.
“Sensoy and DiAngelo masterfully unpack complex concepts in a highly readable and engaging fashion for readers ranging from preservice through experienced classroom teachers. The authors treat readers as intelligent thinkers who are capable of deep reflection and ethical action. I love their comprehensive development of a critical social justice framework, and their blend of conversation, clarity, and research. I heartily recommend this book!”

Laziness isn’t necessarily a bad thing but merely a condition that is natural to all human beings. Lack of efficiency and irresponsibility, on the other hand, can lead to many negative outcomes, not only with impact on the students but also on the career of the teacher.
It was thinking about laziness with efficiency that this book was created, so that teachers may achieve their expectations, but also teach properly, while not spending more than 5 minutes to prepare such classes.
In this book, the author reflects and compiles his15 years of experience as a teacher and lecturer in Europe and Asia, with multiple and different subjects, and in levels ranging from primary school to college. And also a background of extensive investigations on the topic of learning disabilities with highly positive results, as well as experiences as director in training companies and consultant, among many others. These tips, resume his best, most efficient and fastest ways to prepare a class.
The strategies are described in an abstract and wide perspective so that they may easily be applied for any topic of study and levels of teaching. And while not intending to promote laziness, but in fact help teachers prepare good classes in a quick form, and with different approaches, this book was created so that the results regarding the quality of the teaching, in any case, can be maintained.
There are specific rules, far beyond what the detection of a lie could show, that tend to be used in courts to reveal the true nature of the human mind. These principles are here revealed to describe precisely how the human mind works to conceal a lie or even a crime. They apply to everyone because they’re related to the process of thinking, feeling and acting.
While showing the complete structure of thought and moral, strategies and techniques are here described to reveal intentions and predict behaviors. These rules are combined within a paradigm that can be applied by anyone.
