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.

Excerpt from Letters to a Young Teacher To ascertain and explore the springs of action in one's own mind, is to Obtain possession of the key that will unlock the minds of others than Which nothing is more important in the business you have undertaken and nothing will give more effectual control over those intrusted to your care. And, as this is a leading object with the teacher, and one on which his usefulness mainly depends, it should be, first Of all, se cured. There are ten persons who fail in school-government, to one Who fails in mere instruction. The extent Of classical and scientific preparation is of little moment, where the capacity for government is deficient. Self-examination, if faithfully carried out, will unfold to you natural biases and motives, of which you may now be wholly unaware. You may have been drifting forward on the stream of life, like a deserted ship on the bosom of a mighty river, heedless of your course, and trusting that the right hayen would be found at last, without any Special agency on your part to avoid the shoals and Whirlpools, the Obstructions and rocks, that lie exposed or hidden before you. You feel no compunctious visitings at this state of things for you have never been roused to their contemplation. Your attention has never been called to an investigation of those ruling in uences which, un known to yourself, have hitherto led you onward in time's pathway.

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.

Da neigt sich die Stunde und rührt mich an mit klarem metallenem Schlag: mir zittern die Sinne. Ich fühle: ich kann – und ich fasse den plastischen Tag. Nichts war noch vollendet, eh ich es erschaut, ein jedes Werden stand still. Meine Blicke sind reif, und wie eine Braut kommt jedem das Ding, das er will. Nichts ist mir zu klein, und ich lieb es trotzdem und mal es auf Goldgrund und groß und halte es hoch, und ich weiß nicht wem löst es die Seele los ... Ich lebe mein Leben in wachsenden Ringen, die sich über die Dinge ziehn. Ich werde den letzten vielleicht nicht vollbringen, aber versuchen will ich ihn. Ich kreise um Gott, um den uralten Turm, und ich kreise jahrtausendelang; und ich weiß noch nicht: bin ich ein Falke, ein Sturm oder ein großer Gesang. Ich habe viele Brüder in Soutanen im Süden, wo in Klöstern Lorbeer steht. Ich weiß, wie menschlich sie Madonnen planen, und träume oft von jungen Tizianen, durch die der Gott in Gluten geht. Doch wie ich mich auch in mich selber neige: mein Gott ist dunkel und wie ein Gewebe von hundert Wurzeln, welche schweigsam trinken. Nur, daß ich mich aus seiner Wärme hebe, mehr weiß ich nicht, weil alle meine Zweige tief unten ruhn und nur im Winde winken. Wir dürfen dich nicht eigenmächtig malen, du Dämmernde, aus der der Morgen stieg. Wir holen aus den alten Farbenschalen die gleichen Striche und die gleichen Strahlen, mit denen dich der Heilige verschwieg. Wir bauen Bilder vor dir auf wie Wände; so daß schon tausend Mauern um dich stehn. Denn dich verhüllen unsre frommen Hände, sooft dich unsre Herzen offen sehn.

Neufundland, 1919: Die beiden Flieger Jack Alcock und Arthur Brown unternehmen den ersten Nonstopflug über den Atlantik mit Kurs Irland. Dublin, 1845: Der schwarzamerikanische Abolitionist Frederick Douglass reist durch das von Hungersnot gepeinigte Irland, wo die Leute schlimmer leiden als unter der Sklaverei. New York, 1998: US-Senator George Mitchell verlässt seine junge Frau und sein erst wenige Tage altes Baby, um in Belfast die Nordirischen Friedensgespräche zu einem unsicheren Abschluss zu führen. «Transatlantik» verwebt drei ikonische historische Momente mit dem Schicksal dreier Frauen: Angefangen mit der irischen Hausmagd Lily Duggan, in der Frederick Douglass die Liebe zur Freiheit weckt, folgt der Roman ihrer Tochter Emily und ihrer Enkelin Lottie in die USA und, später, zurück auf die Insel. Ihr Leben spiegelt den Verlauf der bewegten Nationalgeschichte Irlands und Amerikas. Dabei spielt ein vergessener, über drei Generationen nicht geöffneter Brief eine entscheidende Rolle. «Transatlantik» ist ein kraftvolles Epos über die Kollision von Geschichte und persönlichem Schicksal – geschrieben mit unvergleichlicher dichterischer Intensität, mit leuchtenden Szenen und klingender Sprache.
