In these affectionate letters to Francesca, a first grade teacher at an inner-city school in Boston, Jonathan Kozol vividly describes his repeated visits to her classroom while, under Francesca’s likably irreverent questioning, he also reveals his own most personal stories of the years that he has spent in public schools. Letters to a Young Teacher reignites a numberof the controversial issues Jonathan has powerfully addressed in recent years: the mania of high-stakes testing that turns many classrooms into test-prep factories where spontaneity and critical intelligence are no longer valued, the invasion of our public schools by predatory private corporations, and the inequalities of urban schools that are once again almost as segregated as they were a century ago. But most of all, these letters are rich with the happiness of teaching children, the curiosity and jubilant excitement children bring into the classroom at an early age, and their ability to overcome their insecurities when they are in the hands of an adoring and hard-working teacher. From the Hardcover edition.

ABOUT THIS BOOK:"Letters to a Young Math Teacher" is designed to inform beginning teachers about the real world of schools and to assist them with the difficult transition from student to teacher. This is not a methods book but rather supplements those texts to address immediate problems related to such topics as the school environment and discipline; textbooks and curriculum; classroom and standardized testing; and interactions with students, colleagues, administrators and parents. Also included is a listing of useful supplemental and personal texts. The publisher is William R. Parks – www.wrparks.com The printer is CreateSpace – an affiliate of Amazon.com.There are about 12,500 new math teachers who enter school classrooms each year. This book is designed to help these young men and women to meet the real world of the school and classroom. Author, Gerald Rising stated, “What we have written in this book is not a methods text. It is instead designed, separately from such texts, to assist the neophyte teacher as he or she enters the real world of the schools based on our own experiences in urban, rural and suburban schools and my additional decades of work with math teachers.”“Contemporary methods texts do not address these problems. Instead they talk about the interpretation of mathematics content and the application of psychological principles to the design of instruction.”“Student teaching only partly makes up for this. The organization and discipline of the classroom is that of the sponsoring teacher.” READER REVIEWS: "An excellent book for beginning math teachers, this work shows considerable insight and understanding of the real world of the schools and the daily issues and problems that new teachers will confront." - Greg A. Baugher, Mercer University, Georgia"This book presents a holistic view of teaching that honors the complex and important work of math teachers. Novice teachers will find the information essential. Veteran teachers will reflect on their work and make some refinements." - Linda Levi, Director of Cognitively Guided Instruction Initiatives, Teachers Development Group and co-author of Children's Mathematics: Cognitively Guided Instruction."Gerald Rising is a champion at demystifying difficult circumstances by applying eloquent logic in recognizable contexts." - Patti Brosnan, Ohio State University"A common sense approach to teaching mathematics from master teachers, gives practical advice and opens the door to becoming an outstanding math teacher." - One Book One Community Selection Committee MemberABOUT THE AUTHORS:Gerald Rising, Ph.D., State University of New York (SUNY) Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus at the University at Buffalo, has been author or co-author of over a dozen textbooks and one hundred journal articles.

From the bestselling author of the National Book Award winner Let the Great World Spin comes a lesson in how to be a writer—and so much more than that. Intriguing and inspirational, this book is a call to look outward rather than inward. McCann asks his readers to constantly push the boundaries of experience, to see empathy and wonder in the stories we craft and hear. A paean to the power of language, both by argument and by example, Letters to a Young Writer is fierce and honest in its testament to the bruises delivered by writing as both a profession and a calling. It charges aspiring writers to learn the rules and even break them. These fifty-two essays are ultimately a profound challenge to a new generation to bring truth and light to a dark world through their art. Praise for the fiction of Colum McCann Let the Great World Spin Winner of the National Book Award “One of the most electric, profound novels I have read in years.”—Jonathan Mahler, The New York Times Book Review “There’s so much passion and humor and pure life force on every page that you’ll find yourself giddy, dizzy, overwhelmed.”—Dave Eggers TransAtlantic Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize and shortlisted for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award “Reminiscent of the finest work of Michael Ondaatje and Michael Cunningham.”—O: The Oprah Magazine “Another sweeping, beautifully constructed tapestry of life . . . Reading McCann is a rare joy.”—The Seattle Times Thirteen Ways of Looking A New York Times Notable Book of the Year “The irreducible mystery of human experience ties this small collection together, and in each of these stories McCann explores that theme in strikingly effective ways.”—The Washington Post “Extraordinary . . . incandescent.”—Chicago Tribune

Pulitzer Prize–winning biologist Edward O. Wilson imparts the wisdom of his storied career to the next generation. Edward O. Wilson has distilled sixty years of teaching into a book for students, young and old. Reflecting on his coming-of-age in the South as a Boy Scout and a lover of ants and butterflies, Wilson threads these twenty-one letters, each richly illustrated, with autobiographical anecdotes that illuminate his career—both his successes and his failures—and his motivations for becoming a biologist. At a time in human history when our survival is more than ever linked to our understanding of science, Wilson insists that success in the sciences does not depend on mathematical skill, but rather a passion for finding a problem and solving it. From the collapse of stars to the exploration of rain forests and the oceans’ depths, Wilson instills a love of the innate creativity of science and a respect for the human being’s modest place in the planet’s ecosystem in his readers.

Letters To A Young Contrarian

In the book that he was born to write, provocateur and best-selling author Christopher Hitchens inspires future generations of radicals, gadflies, mavericks, rebels, angry young (wo)men, and dissidents. Who better to speak to that person who finds him or herself in a contrarian position than Hitchens, who has made a career of disagreeing in profound and entertaining ways.This book explores the entire range of "contrary positions"-from noble dissident to gratuitous pain in the butt. In an age of overly polite debate bending over backward to reach a happy consensus within an increasingly centrist political dialogue, Hitchens pointedly pitches himself in contrast. He bemoans the loss of the skills of dialectical thinking evident in contemporary society. He understands the importance of disagreement-to personal integrity, to informed discussion, to true progress-heck, to democracy itself. Epigrammatic, spunky, witty, in your face, timeless and timely, this book is everything you would expect from a mentoring contrarian.
