Through easy-to-use matrices, the authors link lessons investigating history, economics, literature, music, and visual arts to McREL, NCTE, and NCSS standards. The 100 activities address significant social issues, including social justice, culture, language, and diversity. Teachers can emphasize comprehension, encourage creative thinking, and promote transfer across disciplines to help students:

  • Explore primary sources to uncover practical and relevant information

  • Construct careful arguments to integrate new learning with prior knowledge

  • Question deeply held assumptions to arrive at authentic understandings

  • Approach new ideas with confidence

Cover Graphic

Book Description: Over decades of practice of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), Robert L. Leahy has made important discoveries about the role that beliefs and expectations about emotions play in psychopathology. This book presents innovative tools for helping patients to understand their emotional schemas—such as the conviction that painful feelings are unbearable, shameful, or will last indefinitely—and develop new ways of accepting and coping with affective experience. Therapists can integrate emotional schema therapy into the treatment approaches they already use to add a vital new dimension to their work. Rich case material illustrates applications for a wide range of clinical problems; assessment guidelines and sample worksheets and forms further enhance the book’s utility.
