London-born Kate Bowler, a thirty-five year-old professor at the school of divinity at Duke, had finally had a baby with her childhood sweetheart when she began to feel jabbing pains in her stomach. She lost thirty pounds, guzzled antacid, and visited doctors for three months before she was finally diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer. As Kate navigates the aftermath of her diagnosis, she pulls the reader into her life and her history – affectionately filled with a colourful retinue of friends, mega-church preachers, parents, and doctors – and shares her irreverent, laser-sharp reflections on faith, friendship, love, and death. She wonders why suffering makes her feel like a loser and explores the burden of positivity. Trying to relish the time she still has with her son and husband, she realizes she must cure her habit of ‘skipping to the end’ and planning the next move. An historian of the American Prosperity Gospel (the creed of the megachurches that promises believers a cure for tragedy, if they just want it badly enough) Kate finds that she craves these same 'outrageous certainties'. Why is it so hard to surrender when she knows there are no spiritual guarantees? In Everything Happens for Reason we encounter one of the talented, courageous few who - like Paul Kalanithi - can articulate the grief we feel as we contemplate our own mortality.

This book includes 42 messages drafted during the first seven weeks (June 23 to August 12) after publication of "America the Great," which the author of "America the Great" sent to various groups of persons he thought would be interested in reading "America the Great." Some of the earliest messages are to persons in Scotland and the United Kingdom, because of the September 2014 Scotland Independence Referendum, to note the argument in "America the Great" concerning the legal and practical possibility of joining the United States rather than the European Union. Several of the messages – the longest ones – are to professors and experts in the fields of political science and law in non-United States countries – especially in countries threatened by the current government of mainland China, including Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, the Philippines, and Australia. As he neared the end of the process of drafting these, it occurred to the author that a collection of the messages could be of interest to the general world-wide public. The message to the Philippines, which closes this collection, is perhaps the most important, due to its discussion of naval military issues, and ought also to be read by Australians as if directed to them. New Zealanders should consider the Australian and Philippines messages as also directed to them. The author has added a 27 page addendum concerning the sources of his assertion of expertise in military and diplomatic strategy. This addendum is original material not in "America the Great" and not included in any of the messages.

How can teachers incorporate the richness of historical resources into classrooms in ways that are true to the discipline of history and are pedagogically sound? This book explores the notion of historical literacy, adopts a research-supported stance on literacy processes, and promotes the integration of content-area literacy instruction into history content teaching. It is unique in its focus on the discipline-specific literacies of historical inquiry. Addressing literacy from a historiane(tm)s rather than a a literacy specialiste(tm)s point of view, this book surveys a broad range of texts including those that historians and non-historians both use and produce in understanding history; and includes a wide variety of practical instructional strategies immediately available to teachers.History teachers who read this book will receive the practical tools they need in order to help their students reach the national standards for history teaching. With the recent inclusion of a historical literacy component of the English Language Arts Common Core Standards Initiative, this book is also highly relevant to English, language arts, and reading teachers, who are expected, under the new guidelines, to engage their students in historical reading and writing.Visit for additional information and resources on teaching historical literacies.

Nursery rhymes have been told to children for centuries. Many people think that they are just meant to make children smile. However, preschool children's awareness of rhyme and alliteration has an important influence on their success in learning to read and to spell. In Rhyme and Reason in Reading and Spelling, the authors explore this causal hypothesis using a new research design of combining longitudinal methods with intervention, and they provide strong evidence to show that there is a positive relationship between recognizing similar sounds, as found in nursery rhymes, and learning to read and to spell. The authors also investigate the relationship of this skill to children's learning difficulties. This is the first volume in the International Academy for Research in Learning Disabilities Monograph series.
