Recent Reviews of The Total Transformation Program/

Here’s a look at some of the things you’ll learn:
  • How to Stop Arguing With Your Child
    This is a powerful technique parents love because it pulls the plug on any argument with your child. You’ll be stunned at how quickly it works—even if your teenage son is 6’2" tall and you’re just 5’4"!
  • The 10 Words to Say When He Gets Mouthy
    The technique that puts the brakes on "back talk" and cursing immediately… no matter how nasty your child gets.
  • How to Eliminate "Acting Out" in Public
    If your son or daughter acts out even more when his or her friends are around, this strategy is something you need to know!
  • Stopping the "Blame Game"—For GOOD
    We’ll give you a word–by–word script to use with your child to get him to take responsibility for his own behavior and stop blaming you and others.
  • Consequences 101
    How to give them, which ones work and which ones don’t, including specific consequences for kids in all age groups.
  • Preventing Future Issues—Before They Even Start!
    Instead of talking back, screaming or blaming you, your child will now have a way to solve his problems that gets him better results and better reactions from teachers and other adults.

Based on the latest health and wellness research, children sing, interact and learn with Pennie’s healthful strategies for a lifetime (PrK-3). In a fun music-rich environment, they explore the interrelationship of life skills such as coping with stress, managing anger, kindness, communication, fitness, sleep, nutrition, and more. Thirty-one episodes on three DVDs, with over 15 hours of cross-curricular standards-based activities, support the health curriculum for a full year, as well as language arts, science, social studies, and the arts.
Students love the lively Q&A and hit songs from Broadway and beyond! Educators enjoy using the lessons with different learners, including special needs and struggling students. Includes close captioning and a 100-page teacher guide with classroom and take-home worksheets. (PrK-3)

Developing & responding to/a sensitivity to learner differences

Collaborative and Open Learning Concepts;

1. What is Self-Directed Learning?
Several things are known about self-directed learning: (a) individual learners can become empowered to
take increasingly more responsibility for various decisions associated with the learning endeavor; (b)
self-direction is best viewed as a continuum or characteristic that exists to some degree in every person
and learning situation; (c) self-direction does not necessarily mean all learning will take place in
isolation from others; (d) self-directed learners appear able to transfer learning, in terms of both
knowledge and study skill, from one situation to another; (e) self-directed study can involve various
activities and resources, such as self-guided reading, participation in study groups, internships,
electronic dialogues, and reflective writing activities; (f) effective roles for teachers in self-directed
learning are possible, such as dialogue with learners, securing resources, evaluating outcomes, and
promoting critical thinking; (g) some educational institutions are finding ways to support self-directed
study through open-learning programs, individualized study options, non-traditional course offerings,
and other innovative programs.
(e) Open learning - individualized study often is associated with external degree, open learning, or nontraditional
programs where most learning takes place outside formal classrooms. One of the most widely
known is England's Open University, started in 1969, and emulated now in many countries. Currently,
development of many distance education efforts using computer-assisted learning is necessitating new
research and understanding regarding how technology can enhance self-directed learning.
