Teaching English Abroad: All Things TEFL for Native and Non-native English Teachers--perfect for every academician, current or budding English teacher, and nomad who is looking to experience and conquer the TEFL industry.

"The one exclusive sign of thorough knowledge is the power of teaching." ~ Aristotle

Whether you're experienced in the field of teaching English overseas, or you're a complete newbie - the guide will quickly, and comprehensively bring you up to speed on finding the best English teaching job around the world; and will also give the reader valuable and up-to-date information on a wide variety of TEFL friendly countries around the globe. The book is designed for those looking to leave their dead end job, make a rewarding lifestyle change to be location independent, and most of all to assist you in getting certified to teach English as a foreign language.

But before you set off, it's pivotal to consider what new job, new experience, new country, new culture, and contract is right for you?

Are you looking to quit the 9 to 5 rat race?

The book will inspire you to make that positive change that you have been searching for and give you first hand advice on everything you will ever need to know about teaching English abroad with information collated from Williams' decade of experience teaching abroad and input from other qualified ESL teachers, we well as thorough research to add value to your job search.

Native English Speaker vs. Non-native English speaker (NES vs. NNES)

In certain countries, such as South Korea - you will only be able to find a teaching position and obtain a visa if you are a "native English speaker" hailing from either Britain, Ireland, America, Australia, Canada, New Zealand or South Africa. If you are from a country that is considered "non-native" then don't fret, the opportunities out there are still plentiful in an array of countries across the world; and the book will explore those countries and opportunities with you. There is also an additional chapter for Filipino teachers looking to make the move abroad and information on how and where to find a position.

Are you qualified?

If you haven't already obtained a TEFL, TESOL or CELTA certification, or you're looking to top-up your current qualifications then you'll find an abundance of information on what each of these courses are and what they offer.

In addition, you will also learn exactly how to land a job, the desired qualifications, visa requirements and expected salary in over twenty different countries.

It's extremely important for you to find and choose the best contract, in the best country, at the best school or language institution. In places like China, it is extremely common for recruiters to offer you a position as soon as they see your CV, that you're a native English speaker, and that you have a TEFL diploma. But there are so many jobs, in so many countries available, the book will give you specific details on what to consider: is this job, this school, this contract, this pay rate and benefits, the amount of holidays, and this community the right choice for you.

Don't just holiday abroad, move there, live there, teach there, play there and completely immerse yourself in a brand new culture. What are you waiting for?

Common Core Standards and World War II: A Literary Veteran's Day Observance

President Dwight D. Eisenhower, a five-star general and commander of the Allied Forces in Europe during World War II, established a committee in 1954 to plan a Veterans Day observance. This day honors all veterans of the United States and is held each year on November 11 with a somber ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. A wreath is placed on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and followed by a parade of colors. In 2015, the United States and the world will mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. Victory in Europe occurred on May 8, 1945, but the official end of the war came when Japan surrendered to the United States on August 15, 1945. Some students may have family members who remember World War II, but most only know the hardships both at home and in foreign war zones through books they read. The novels presented in this guide give them a glimpse of the events on the home front in the United States after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and what was happening in Europe and Asia before and after the United States entered the war.

What is Unschooling?: Living and Learning without School

Children are born curious, creative, and wired to learn--and we value those traits in adults! So why, as our children grow up, do we often insist they change to fit into the education system, where curiosity is replaced by curricula, creativity by conformity, and learning by memorizing?

If you'd rather nurture your children's curiosity, creativity, and love of learning, let me introduce you to the world of unschooling.

In this short book, we'll explore some of the most common questions people have when they first hear about unschooling:

What is unschooling?

How will my child learn?

Without a curriculum, what will they learn?

How do I know they're learning?

Will unschooling work for my child?

But what if my child already has trouble at school?

What is deschooling?

How do I get started?

Life in the real world is much bigger and more exciting than a school can contain within its four walls. If you're ready to embrace life and eager to share its wonder with your children, unschooling might be for you!

It is NOT a phonics-based system, or in fact any sort of system but, a fact-filled guide that will explain many of the current methods used, why and how you might use them yourself, HOWEVER, most importantly, as a caring and fully engaged parent - it is about nurturing a love of reading and having a lovely time with your child.

It is perfect for Home Educators and ideal for any parent who wants to prepare their child and support them learning to read and write at school.

Navigating The Digital Shift: Implementation Strategies For Blended And Online Learning

Our nation's schools stand at an important "inflection point" in the history of education. Taken together, the implementation of common college and career standards, the shift to next generation assessments, the availability of affordable devices, and the growing number of high-quality digital instructional tools create an unprecedented opportunity to fundamentally shift the education system to personalize learning around the individual needs of every student.

Digital Learning Now! (DLN), a national initiative under the Foundation for Excellence in Education (ExcelinEd), in association with Getting Smart, brings "Navigating the Digital Shift: Implementation Strategies for Blended and Online Learning" to readers interested in exploring the implementation challenges at the intersection of these shifts. Co-authored by John Bailey, Carri Schneider, and Tom Vander Ark, "Navigating the Digital Shift" offers updated versions of the eight papers originally released in the "DLN Smart Series" including contributions from 11 additional co-authors representing leading organizations such as Public Impact, the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL) and The Learning Accelerator. Topics include: blended learning implementation, teaching conditions and careers, competency-based learning, student data, online learning myths, and student-based funding.

Jeb Bush, Governor of Florida from 1999-2007 and Chairman of ExcelinEd, contends that the book "provides policymakers and education leaders the tools they need to use digital learning as a catalyst for improved student achievement." AASA 2013 Superintendent of the Year Dr. Mark Edwards believes the collection "provides meaningful, practical, and poignant advice as well as commentary regarding the move to college and career ready standards associated with the shift to personal online learning and digital resources." Rhode Island's Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education Deborah Gist describes the book as an "invaluable resource that will help educators re-imagine what our schools can look like and what our students can accomplish."

Club College: Why So Many Universities Look Like Resorts

Club College is a chapter excerpt from coming out October 18, 2011.

On college campuses nationwide, luxury and learning go hand-in-hand, keeping the price tag for higher education out of reach for many Americans. Education innovator, and chairman and CEO of Kaplan, Inc., Andrew S. Rosen examines today's resort-style campus, providing inspiring solutions for stopping the spending spirals and making college affordable for all.

Despite the financial crunch, many American universities have become surprisingly lavish over the past decade, providing state-of-the-art recreation facilities, bistro-style dining, spectacular residence halls that rival fine hotels, and "free" amenities such as Kindles, not to mention multi-million-dollar stadiums and coaches' salaries starting in the high six figures. Showcasing these extraordinary campuses, "Club College" captures the new economic models of higher education, which often divert funds from academics to gain a competitive edge in attracting an elite group of students. On this fascinating tour, Andrew S. Rosen proposes bold new alternatives that focus our nation's dollars on learning.

Poised to spark a dialogue about our nation's higher education system, "Club College" makes the classroom the centerpiece of college once again, opening doors to careers for a broad range of talented individuals--arguably our greatest economic asset.

Harvard Envy: Why Too Many Colleges Overshoot

Harvard Envy is a chapter excerpt from coming out October 18, 2011.

Exploring the limitations of the exclusive, tradition-bound world of higher education, innovator Andrew S. Rosen, chairman and CEO of Kaplan, Inc., delivers a vision for making a world-class college experience available to students of all backgrounds.

Little is known about John Harvard, who bequeathed his books and 779 to a fledgling college on the Charles River in the 1630s, but the institution that bears his name has become the gold standard for universities worldwide. Tracing this fascinating history, and the history of American higher education overall, "Harvard Envy" raises important questions about the effect of super-elite campuses on America's educational landscape. Just as Congress hotly debated whether to approve land-grant colleges in the nineteenth century, opening the doors of higher education to farmers, we face a competitive new demand for a highly educated workforce. Yet many colleges continue to insist on limiting access, and many college applicants continue to believe that exclusive institutions deliver the highest quality.

With an eye-opening examination of the U.S. News and World Report college rankings and other barometers, "Harvard Envy" takes an enlightened look at how universities allocate resources and talent. Offering an inspiring alternative to the Ivory Tower playbook, Andrew S. Rosen presents a bold, cost-effective new vision for a truly competitive higher education system that serves both individual and national interests.

Jackie Kennedy: A Captivating Guide to the Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

Explore the Fascinating Life of Jackie Kennedy

Free History BONUS Inside!

Without a doubt, the name Jackie Kennedy draws multiple thoughts to mind; she is, perhaps, most well-known in her service as the first lady of the United States, as her husband, John F. Kennedy, took office as the president, and her role in restoring the White House. Then, of course, other people remember Jacqueline for her role in the fashion industry, particularly her pink Chanel suit and matching pillbox hat, which became a symbol of her husband's assassination.

Jackie is so renowned and beloved that she ranks as one of the most popular first ladies. In fact, Jacqueline was named in 1999 on Gallup's list of Most Admired Men and Women in twentieth-century America. While she made major impacts on the White House, Jackie was much more than her title as first lady.
