The Anatomy Student's
Self-Test Coloring Book

Dr. Kurt Albertine

Learning and naming the many parts and systems of the human body can be a daunting task for student nurses, as well as for other students preparing for careers in the various scientific and medical professions. This highly original book helps make learning a great deal easier. Hundreds of anatomically accurate line illustrations show human body parts and readers are encouraged to shade them in with colored pencils. It’s a simple physical task intended to imprint on students’ memories the shape and location of each body part, making later visualization and memory retention much easier. The book has a spiral binding hidden beneath the cover’s spine so that pages lie flat for easy coloring. Other features include―

• Tabbed chapter openers for quick reference
• Extra-heavy paper that minimizes show-through
• Every body system and part is presented
• All parts labeled with correct anatomical names

An extra feature is a set of eight transparent overlays illustrating the human body. They simulate the peeling away of layers of tissue to reveal anatomical features, such as muscles, bones, organs, and circulatory system. The overlays are bound into the book with “scissor-perf” lines that show students where to cut. The Anatomy Student’s Self-Test Coloring Book is a must-have learning tool for all students and practitioners who require detailed anatomical knowledge. In addition to a substantial and instructive text, it features 144 two-color pages and 32 additional pages in full color.

The early concept sorting activities are followed with picture sorts that develop phonemic awareness and include activities for rhyming, syllabication, and sound play. Alphabet knowledge and letter recognition are then covered, along with sorts that look at concept of word in print, as well as poems, jingles and short text selections that can be shared with children. Students are then ushered into sorts that introduce beginning consonants with pictures, laying the foundation for the letter-name stage.

Reading Doesn't Matter Anymore
David Booth

Shattering the Myths of Literacy

In this timely, wise, and often witty book, eminent educator and author David Booth argues that teachers must redefine reading as an activity that embraces the needs and interests of students. Reading isn't just about Dick and Jane or great literature any more: it's about the Internet, comic books, technical manuals, graphic novels, iPods, and much more.

Booth outlines twelve simple steps to help teachers and parents alike revolutionize the way they view - and encourage - children's reading in all kinds of genres and formats. He argues forcefully that we must: redefine what reading means; include comics, magazines, manuals, along with novels in our reading programs; understand that technology is part of the new literacy; remember that story is the heart of literacy; help students build strong reading muscles; value the reading responses of young people; view writing as literacy; recognize the different ages and stages of individuals; explore how words work; turn printed texts into active learning; focus on literacy in every subject; welcome youngsters into the culture of literacy.

In some very personal reflections, the author reveals the decisive moments in his life that have shaped his approach to reading and learning. Lively anecdotes throughout the book create a highly readable narrative that makes a compelling case for recognizing the unique value of reading...almost anything.

The book concludes with over one-hundred literacy events that celebrate reading not just in school, but the world beyond.

StrengthsQuest
Donald O. Clifton

Discover and Develop Your Strengths in Academics, Career and Beyond.

Students who use their natural talents achieve the most --- but they need to know what those talents are.

StrengthsQuest includes the Clifton StrengthsFinder, an online assessment that reveals students' top five themes of talent. StrengthsQuest also helps students make the most of those talents.

Students and learners of all ages continually face the challenges of gaining direction, making decisions, and building self-confidence. Fortunately, the keys to successfully meeting these challenges -- your own natural talents -- already exist within you. Through these talents, you will produce your greatest achievements.

Over the course of 30 years, Gallup conducted millions of psychological interviews and identified 34 themes of talent that are indicative of success. In the StrengthsQuest program, Gallup offers you the opportunity to discover talents from your top five themes and build on them to achieve academic, career, and personal excellence. More than 100,000 students have benefited from the program.

Your quest starts with the Clifton StrengthsFinder, a 30-minute assessment that reveals your top five themes of talent.

This online assessment is your entryway to a variety of experiences that will help you discover your greatest talents and develop strengths. You'll gain access to action items specific to your top themes, covering general academic life, study habits, relationships, and career. You'll also be challenged to think about applying your talents for success in other settings, such as on projects and teams and in leadership.

StrengthsQuest was written by the late Donald O. Clifton, who was the former chairman of Gallup; coauthor of the bestseller Now, Discover Your Strengths; and recognized as the Father of Strengths-Based Psychology and the late Edward "Chip" Anderson, who taught education, psychology, and leadership at UCLA and Azusa Pacific University. Revised portions of the text were written by Laurie A. Schreiner, who has taught psychology and higher education at Azusa Pacific University and Eastern University.

Nonfiction Mentor Texts
Lynne R. Dorfman

Teaching Informational Writing Through Children's Literature, K-8

In their first book, Mentor Texts, Lynne Dorfman and Rose Cappelli demonstrated how teachers can use children's literature to guide and inspire student writers of narrative fiction and poetry. Now, they have turned their focus to nonfiction, identifying a wide range of mentor texts and showing how these models illustrate the key features of good writing. Lynne and Rose guide teachers through a variety of projects, samples, and classroom anecdotes that demonstrate how teachers can help students become more effective writers of good nonfiction. The Your Turn lessons at the end of each chapter use the gradual release of responsibility model to guide and empower student writers. Teachers will find especially helpful the information on how to select appropriate mentor texts from among the sometimes overwhelming offerings of children's literature. Each Your Turn lesson encourages reflection and motivates students to think about what they've learned, the purpose of learning and practicing a skill or strategy, and how they might use this technique in the future. Additionally, An Author's Voice provides encouragement and advice from published authors of children's nonfiction. One of the most valuable features of Nonfiction Mentor Texts is the treasure chest of books organized according to chapter. This list includes every title mentioned in the book, as well as a host of other titles that teachers can use to help students learn about quality nonfiction writing--building content, organizing text, developing voice, enhancing style, using punctuation effectively--and from which students can draw topic ideas. Lynne and Rose have either read or used all of the featured books in their classrooms and have selected titles that meet the needs of students at varying levels. Teachers will be able to find the just-right book for each student.

Readicide
Kelly Gallagher

How Schools Are Killing Reading and What You Can Do About It

Read-i-cide n: The systematic killing of the love of reading, often exacerbated by the inane, mind-numbing practices found in schools.

Reading is dying in our schools. Educators are familiar with many of the factors that have contributed to the decline--poverty, second-language issues, and the ever-expanding choices of electronic entertainment. In this provocative new book, Kelly Gallagher suggests, however, that it is time to recognize a new and significant contributor to the death of reading: our schools. In Readicide, Kelly argues that American schools are actively (though unwittingly) furthering the decline of reading. Specifically, he contends that the standard instructional practices used in most schools are killing reading by: - valuing the development of test-takers over the development of lifelong readers; - mandating breadth over depth in instruction; - requiring students to read difficult texts without proper instructional support; - insisting that students focus solely on academic texts; - drowning great books with sticky notes, double-entry journals, and marginalia; - ignoring the importance of developing recreational reading; and - losing sight of authentic instruction in the shadow of political pressures. Kelly doesn't settle for only identifying the problems. Readicide provides teachers, literacy coaches, and administrators with specific steps to reverse the downward spiral in reading--steps that will help prevent the loss of another generation of readers.

Outliers
Malcolm Gladwell

Outliers (Fueras de Serie): Por Que Unas Personas Tienen Exito y Otras No

In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

Que diferencia a quienes hacen algo especial en la vida de quienes no lo hacen? Fueras de serie explora las curiosas historias de los grandes jugadores de futbol; bucea en la peculiar infancia de Bill Gates; busca que convirtio a los Beatles en el mejor grupo de rock; y se pregunta que distingue a los pilotos que estrellan aviones de los que no. A traves de su viaje por el mundo de los ''fueras de serie'', los mejores, los mas brillantes y famosos, nos convence de que nuestro modo de pensar en el exito es erroneo. Prestamos demasiada atencion al aspecto de estas personas, y muy poca al lugar de donde vienen, es decir, a su cultura, su familia, su generacion y a las singularidades de su educacion. Brillante y entretenido, Fueras de serie es toda una referencia que al mismo tiempo iluminara y hara disfrutar.
