2019 CFA Level 1 – 25th HOUR NOTES: Summarize most vital concepts for each Topic – Covers entire syllabus

by Havels Learning System

Books description
� Summarize most vital concepts from each reading
� Key formulas and facts
â? 25th Hour Notes can be used on a â??stand-alone’ basis if you are time-constrained.

The 25th HOUR NOTES is based on Pareto’s 80-20 rule according to which 80% of the exam questions are likely to be based on 20% of the curriculum. Hence this course focuses on the 20% material which is most testable.

We call this the “25th Hour Notes” because your investment (time and money) is low but the potential return (passing the exam) is high!

Many candidates complain that they forget material covered earlier. The 25th HOUR NOTES addresses this problem by helping you to quickly revise key concepts.

Building second nature: Workbook for teaching impulse control to children

by Madeleine Matthews

â??Building second nature”, is a story designed to get you and your child familiar with the biological resources that enable us to survive and thrive as a kind moral, intellectually capable human beings.

Say yes to a beautifully illustrated story with a great lesson:
â?? It gives positive parenting solutions to use in tantrums, using science based symbolic characters.
â?? This story celebrates the role of connection with the primary caregiver, as per attachment parenting
â?? Written based on the No drama discipline book, the story explains the benefits of brain integration.
â?? Helps with your conscious parenting effort, by offering a scientific perspective on temper tantrums
â?? The story line supports mindful parenting by explaining what happens during a tantrum
â?¶What’s this children’s book based on?
Based on the science of brain integration, attachment parenting and interpersonal biology. We’ve created Wrinkles who is an adorable and well-balanced elephant – a symbolic representation of our most evolved part of the brain, and Flappy who is a cute and energetic dragon, standing proud to represent our reptilian part of the brain, in charge for survival.
They live together in wondrous world, filled with mysteries, which is none other than our amazing brains

â?¶Characters & plot
Flappy and Wrinkles are special in their own way and they have super-powers. This is a fun, accessible way your child can become aware of his internal resources. When the alarm gets triggered, Wrinkles and Flappy get separated, and their mission is in jeopardy. An alarm is in the book a representation of what parents all over the world painfully experience every day as ‘temper tantrums’. The severity of each ‘alarm’ depends on the age of the child, his tiredness or hunger and level of frustration, anger, sadness etc.

â?¶How it works?
Through these characters, this story helps children to learn about their brain, to understand their brain dynamic during a challenging situation when big emotions are involved and a technique of integrating the ‘upstairs brain’ with the ‘down stairs brain’.
In this book, you will learn the two secrets that brought Flappy & Wrinkles back together, and helped them accomplish their mission.

â?¶What is the message in this childrens behavior book?
In a child’s brain, that is what a tantrum feels like: an alarm signaling that some expectations, desires, needs are not aligned with the perceived experience.And this is when those beautiful, big emotions arise, as sign posts.
What’s great about this book is that it put’s these challenging parenting moments into perspective: what’s hard is a very young brain, learning how to asses threat levels when desires are not met & cope with the associated big emotions.
Big emotions that arise everyday are not a palpable thing, but they are perceived and felt as a very real threat. This is why kids need help in learning how to deal with ‘big emotional situations’

â?¶How can this book help?
The dialog between Wrinkles and Flappy is intended to create the habit of digging deeper into finding out what happened and telling the story.
The practice sheets will help you:â?? identify survival type responses in your child (situations where Flappy takes over)
â?? identify executive function specific behaviors (situations where Wrinkles is in charge and your child’s brain is being integrated and gets stronger)
â?? identify situations that trigger the amygdala (Flappy) and fight, flight, freeze responses (aka tantrums)
â?? list down the specific ways your child best perceives signs of love)
â?? putting it all together, into the specific puzzle of the situation, so that you get enough muscle behind the most efficient way to calm the brain: name it to tame it.

The Change Laboratory for Teacher Training in Entrepreneurship Education: A New Skills Agenda for Europe (SpringerBriefs in Education)

by Daniele Morselli

This open access book illustrates a new type of formative intervention for in-service teacher training in entrepreneurship education. The book describes a Change Laboratory and shows how teachers and workshop assistants develop the idea of a multidisciplinary project entailing the design of a self-service and parking lot in a dismissed area close to the city centre. The multidisciplinary project is taken as example of how an idea is debated and turned into collective action and change, the very essence of initiative and entrepreneurship. The Change Laboratory thus increases the participation of students, teachers and stakeholders in the school towards a new curriculum through the implementation of a multidisciplinary project connecting school with the world outside and working life.

The book features a foreword by Luke Pittaway, USASBE Entrepreneurship Educator of 2018.
 The manuscript discusses key concepts of Cultural Historical Activity Theory’s Change Laboratory as a formative intervention in a coherent and accessible manner. Beyond that it carefully illustrates how the Change Laboratory and its principles of double stimulation and ascending from the abstract to the concrete can be used as a theory of change to address one of the difficult and new demands of the European Union’s New Skills Agenda. The author takes the reader through the expansive learning journey and uses strong evidence to show how a new object can be developed, and how associated tensions and contradictions can be surfaced and tackled by actors with a partially shared object, and how a new concept can be formed and enriched through implementation and reflection in a manner that generates collective transformative agency.
