This innovative resource provides teachers with a road map for designing a comprehensive writing curriculum that meets Common Core State Standards. The authors zero in on several big ideas that lead to and support effective practices in writing instruction, such as integrating reading, writing, speaking, and listening; teaching writing as a process; extending the range of the students' writing; spiraling and scaffolding a writing curriculum; and collaborating. These ideas are the cornerstone of best reseach-based practices as well as the CCSS for writing. The first chapter offers a complete lesson designed around teaching narrative writing and illustrates tried-and-true practices for teaching writing as a process. The remaining chapters explore a broad range of teaching approaches that help students tackle different kinds of narrative, informational, and argumentative writing as well as complexities like audience and purpose. Each chapter focuses on at least one of the uncommonly good ideas and illustrates how to create curricula around it. Uncommonly Good Ideas includes model lessons and assignments, mentor texts, teaching strategies, student writing, and practical guidance for moving the ideas from the page into the classroom.

The Teacher-Writer shows how teachers can pursue and sustain personally and professionally worthwhile writing practices, even amidst the many demands associated with teaching. It meets teachers wherever they are--as novice teachers just beginning to pursue writing, as teachers emerging from a professional development experience, or as accomplished writers seeking to further their craft. Chapter by chapter, the book provides strategies to help teachers get started on projects, build energy for writing, overcome obstacles of limited time, create support systems using online technologies, and develop coherence across their writing lives. The text includes useful writing group routines, questions for framing collaborative inquiry, methods for adapting writing communities to online settings, and rich examples of conversations and texts shared in actual teacher writing group meetings.

This is the first book to specifically address the needs of transnational youth, a growing population of students who live and go to school across the United States and other nations including Mexico and different Caribbean islands. The author describes a coherent approach to English language arts and literacy education that supports the literacy learning and development of transnational students, while incorporating these students’ unique experiences to enrich the learning of all students. Drawing from exemplary teachers’ classroom practice and research-based approaches, the book demonstrates how teachers can engage with transnationalism to reap the unique and significant benefits this phenomenon presents for literacy education. These benefits include a deeper appreciation of cultural and linguistic diversity, an increased awareness of world citizenship, and the development of globally informed ways of reading, writing, investigating, and thinking. Book Features: Describes a comprehensive approach to literacy education that is more inclusive, productive, and powerful for all students. Shows teachers how attending to transnationalism can fit within and enhance the work they already do with all of their students. Includes learning activities that align with best practices for building multicultural, multilingual, and other forms of border-crossing knowledge and skills. Includes specific strategies teachers can use to address the unique challenges that transnationalism poses, such as extended absences from the classroom. “Allison Skerrett shows in this book that teachers can mitigate harm through specific choices in their teaching, by viewing difference as a resource that is available to a greater degree when we are fortunate enough to have transnational students in our classrooms.” —Randy Bomer, Professor and Chair, Curriculum and Instruction, The College of Education, University of Texas at Austin “This well-researched and engagingly written book brilliantly illuminates the often hidden or sorely misunderstood life and schooling experiences of transnational youth. It is a primary text for courses on literacy theories and practices, and fills a critical gap in how we conceptualize and implement literacy instruction for all youth.” —Jabari Mahiri, professor of education, UC Berkeley

Als Julie ihn das erste Mal sieht, flippt sie aus. Und zwar total. Als Bryce sie das erste Mal sieht, haut er ab. Und zwar schnell. Das war damals, vor vielen Jahren, in der 2. Klasse. Julie liebt Bryce immer noch: seine blauen Augen. Seine schwarzen Haare. Und den blonden Flaum auf seinen Ohrläppchen. Bryce findet Julie immer noch, na ja, seltsam: ihre Hühnerzucht. Ihre Angewohnheit in Bäumen zu sitzen. Und ihre frontalen, finalen Angriffe. Immer noch sind sie Nachbarn. Immer noch gehen sie in die selbe Klasse. Und immer noch haben sie sich nicht geküsst. Ist Liebe eine Frage der Perspektive? Denn Julie fragt sich allmählich, ob seine Persönlichkeit wirklich so schön ist wie seine Augen. Und Bryce fragt sich allmählich, ob ihre Persönlichkeit nicht, na ja, irgendwie cool ist. "

"Mit der Erzählung »Herz der Finsternis« gelangte Joseph Conrad zu Weltruhm. Der ungewöhnlich symbolreiche Text wird seit Erscheinen immer wieder aufs Neue interpretiert. Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts, der Flussdampferkapitän Marlow reist im Auftrag einer belgischen Handelskompanie tief in den Kongo. Auf seiner Reise erlebt er unverständliche Wirrnisse, Sinnlosigkeit und eine unvorstellbare Ausbeutung der Einheimischen. Die Reise auf dem Fluss entwickelt sich immer mehr zur Reise in sein eigenes Unterbewusstsein, in ein finsteres Labyrinth von Lüge und Schuld. Marlow trifft auf den berüchtigten Elfenbeinhändler Kurtz. Dieser hat aus seinem Handelsposten ein Zentrum des Bösen gemacht und sich so eine machtvolle Position erschaffen, von der aus er scheinbar frei schalten und walten darf. »Herz der Finsternis« hat von Anfang an Leser und Interpreten fasziniert und hat bis heute nichts von seiner Aktualität eingebüßt. Der Stoff diente als Vorlage mehrerer Verfilmungen. Am bekanntesten: »Apocalypse Now« von Francis Ford Coppola mit Marlon Brando in der Rolle des charismatischen und geheimnisvollen Ausbeuters (diesmal) asiatischer Einheimischer während des Vietnamkrieges und »Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes« von Herzog mit Klaus Kinski als wahnsinnigen Eroberer und Vollstrecker eines ausbeuterischen, europäischen Kolonialismus in Süd-Amerika. 1. Auflage, ISBN 978-3-95418-207-7 Umfang: 149 Normseiten bzw. 144 Buchseiten Null Papier Verlag - www.null-papier.de"

Jeder kennt sie: Momente, in denen wir denken, ohne zu denken.Wir nennen sie Intuition oder Bauchgefühl. Aber sie sind viel mehr: Unser Gehirn arbeitet dann auf Hochtouren, um uns die richtigen Entscheidungen zu liefern. Malcolm Gladwell erklärt die Macht dieses Augenblicks und zeigt, wie wir unsere verborgene Intelligenz trainieren und besser nutzen können.
