Cassidy et al. looked into the topic: Cyberbullying, in details. The authors have spotted that there are other numerous research, which are frequently conducted and get published around the globe. They have reviewed several published literature that bases on several themes: consequences of cyberbullying to the victims, parents, and schools; the link between face-to-face bullying to the virtual cyber bullying and their highlighted similarities and differences, the suggested solutions, either useful or futile. The authors have presented a review of all the strategies that can be used by the educators, professionals, doctors, psychologists, and parents with an aim to curb the increasing cyberbullying cases.

The reviewed piece shows all the possible interventions and prevention strategies. The home and school culture have been embraced by communication technologies, modeling, social media, and curriculum development. The bystander education and peer non-punitive approaches have been highlighted in the print to help navigate the rising number of cases. The authors have outlined their work professionally and very precise for simplicity and understanding when the in use. Cassidy, Faucher, and Jackson have concluded their review by offering the implications that are targeted by the discussion policies, as well as the future research plans. I would advise all the professionals to embrace the book. It is well reviewed basing on undoubted evidenced that was presented by other various authors. The prints are found in libraries and online. Cyberbullying is growing and needs to be mitigated. The resource is worth consideration.

Cottrell, S. (2008). Intelligence and Learning in The Study Skills Handbook, UK: Palgrave McMillan

The learning process is vital to be understood to help nurture the intelligence levels among the learners. Cottrell offers all the nine steps that should be observed to ensure fully fledged intelligence impacts. The author insists that the skills are very vital in all the aspects of learning for they make the process easier and achievable. He argues that learning entails more than just study skills, and therefore, offers a detailed learning process that has been proven successful. There are sequential directions of how intelligence evolves under given conditions and selective learning methods. Many have always been associating success with cleverness, a myth that Cottrell tries to refute in the article. The idea that several people are very successful globally despite having not gone to any class.

Cottrell identifies that self-belief is as relevant as a conducive learning environment for the student. The learning history contributes to one’s success in their current learning process. The learner should also understand themselves and be able to absorb the surrounding beliefs that may appear to constrict their future. The author also identifies the ‘ghost’ question that faces each of us in our education life. Everybody wonders if they are destined for university, yet other are convinced of how they deserve the chance. However, this creates anxiety bringing about vicious cycles. The author has outlined the ideas chronologically ready to be understood by all users. This resource is worth consideration for the scholars and any other professionals.
