One of the founders of humanistic psychology, Abraham Maslow, developed theories on human behaviour and motivation that have had a major impact on the public consciousness. His theories shaped not only psychology but many other fields, including counselling, education and management. At the time of his death 25 years ago, Maslow left a vast collection of articles, essays and letters intended for publication: now the noted Maslow biographer, Edward Hoffman, has compiled the most compelling of these writings into one volume.In these articles, Maslow shares his thoughts on a wide range of topics, from self-actualization and well-being to American politics and organizational management. Hoffman provides a biographical introduction to Maslow's life and work, introductions to each article and a glossary of terms.

Keep thinking¿keep learning in different settingsIn Peter Liljedahl¿s bestselling Building Thinking Classrooms in Mathematics: 14 Teaching Practices for Enhancing Learning, readers discovered that thinking is a precursor to learning. Translating 15 years of research, the anchor book introduced 14 practices that have the most potential to increase student thinking in the classroom and can work for any teacher in any setting. But how do these practices work in a classroom with social distancing or in settings that are not always face-to-face? This follow-up supplement will answer those questions, and more. It walks teachers through how to adapt the 14 practices for 12 distinct settings, some of which came about as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This guide: Provides the what, why, and how to adapt each practice in face-to-face settings that require social distancing, fixed seating, or small class sizes; synchronous and asynchronous virtual settings; synchronous and asynchronous hybrid settings; independent learning; and homeschooling. Includes guidance on using thinking classroom practices to support students in unfinished learning in small groups and one-on-one teaching or tutoring. Offers updated toolkits and a recommended order for the implementation of the practices for each of the settings.This supplement allows teachers to dip in as needed and continually modify the practices as their own classroom situations change and evolve, always keeping the thinking at the forefront of their mathematics teaching and learning.
Researchers in the social sciences and beyond are dealing more and more with massive quantities of text data requiring analysis, from historical letters to the constant stream of content in social media. Traditional texts on statistical analysis have focused on numbers, but this book will provide a practical introduction to the quantitative analysis of textual data. Using up-to-date R methods, this book will take readers through the text analysis process, from text mining and pre-processing the text to final analysis. It includes two major case studies using historical and more contemporary text data to demonstrate the practical applications of these methods. Currently, there is no introductory how-to book on textual data analysis with R that is up-to-date and applicable across the social sciences. Code and a variety of additional resources are available on an accompanying website for the book.
