Tapping into the existing resources and staff available within your school, The Revitalized Tutoring Center provides an effective strategy to improve instruction and student performance. This practical guide shares the blueprint, best practices, and resources necessary to create and implement a robust, embedded tutoring center. This dynamic peer tutoring model brings together teachers, peers, and community members in a support network that identifies students in need and facilitates individualized instruction. With a peer tutoring model in place, schools are better positioned to initiate and sustain a variety of initiatives such as PLCs, RTI, formative assessment, community partnerships, and service learning, while creating equitable access and opportunity for all. This book illustrates how instructional leaders can leverage existing resources in a sustainable and cost-effective way to implement a model that ultimately leads to cultural changes, innovation, and significant academic improvement.
Pro-ecological education related to the process of shaping human attitude towards the environment that surrounds him, is particularly associated with making the pupil aware of the fact that he is part of his own environment, and at the same time man constitues a cognitive and exploratory entity in his environment, which in turn can be: natural environment in which the man is trying to explore it, discover its natural resources as well as its threats; socio-economic and socio-political environment, which has been associated with the so-called "city" (polis) since ancient times; an esthetic and ethical environment connected with moral aspects and defined values. In the present publication, we focus on the latter definition of environment, paying attention to its axiological aspects. Pro-ecological education can be perceived as a specific direction of education that has also developed its own methodology, and today has become a field of human education based on shaping his attitudes and behaviour. Additionaly, this trend encompasses education by providing a human being with knowledge about ecosystems, biosystems and sociosystems, considered not only from axiological and methodological, but mainly from existential perspectives. On the basis of the collected literature of the subject, which today is perceived as the field of education, it is essential to devote our attention to in the theoretical part of the publication so that we could undertake the analysis of specific data on the basis of the achieved results of our own empirical research. This type of education - like any other- needs to be also associated with values - especially pro-ecological ones that pedagogical axiology deals with.
