Borrowing Prospero's "rough magic" as a descriptor for his examination of the art and craft of teaching, Lindley sets out to heighten the awareness of experienced and novice teachers alike. He explores the teaching/learning process and how teachers' own feelings affect their work. A hands-on book, it uncovers the nature of what really happens in the teacher/student interaction in the classroom. Lindley emphasizes the practical: He makes use of his own teaching life, and that of others, as it exemplifies theoretical positions derived from studies of classroom teaching and analytical psychology (Jungian). In the process, he has created a book of value in re-energizing the in-service teacher and educating the pre-service teacher. Parents, administrators, anyone interested in the process of teaching will find the book fascinating and useful.

Education and Anarchy sets in motion a way of thinking about, questioning, and responding to what we can do in the face of chaos, which, whether we acknowledge it or not, animates and drives our relation to learning and teaching. Each chapter addresses different aspects of how we can learn to live creatively with this potential for losing control over what we would master, by providing practical examples and lesson plans involving both traditional literary approaches and also more experimental non-verbal modes of expression across the curriculum and disciplines. Education and Anarchy concludes by reaffirming that each student can provide you, the teacher, with ample opportunities to remember, and to learn from, how you learn best. In the end education is about letting students learn. Despite pressures from above, teachers - of whatever rank and working in no matter what discipline or field of study - are the ultimate guardians of this truth.

Responsibility, compassion, and self-direction are the kind of balanced, common sense characteristics that both teachers and students should develop. Yet, in an environment of high stakes testing, common sense and educational balance are often lost amidst constant test preparation. Teaching for Intellectual and Emotional Learning (TIEL): A Model for Creating Powerful Curriculum will help teachers and teacher educators meet their goals of mastery in basic skills and content knowledge as well as intellectual and social emotional development. Sharing the experiences of real teachers who changed their teaching and helped their students understand their learning and develop skills of self-direction and collaboration, Folsom introduces a powerful visual model that helps teachers develop standards-based curriculum that includes social-emotional learning. New ways of planning lessons and developing project-based units that focus on developing thinking skills and social emotional learning are presented. The TIEL model makes the fundamental intellectual and social emotional processes that underlie effective teaching and learning accessible to teacher educators, teachers, and students in gifted, special, and general education.

The Demon Chernobog¾ Foiled but Not Conquered in The Shadow of the Lion¾ is Back to Conquer Sixteenth-Century Venice! Chernobog had come within a hair of seizing absolute power in Venice, but was thwarted by the guardian Lion-spirit, who awoke to protect his city from the power-mad demon. But the power of the Lion is limited to Venice, and Chernobog has a new ally in the King of Hungary, who has beseiged the island of Corfu to seize control of the Adriatic from Venice. Trapped on the island is the small band of heroes who awoke the Lion and thwarted Chernobog before. Far from the Lion's help, Manfred and Erik lead guerrillas against the foe, and Maria discovers ancient magical powers on the island. If she can make alliance with them, she may be able to repel the invaders¾but not without paying a bitter personal price. . . . At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management). Praise for the Prequel, The Shadow of the Lion: "The prolific Lackey and cohorts Flint and Freer whip up a luscious bouillabaisse of politics, intrigue, love and black magic set in an "Other-worldly, New-Age Venice. . . ." The authors' use of contemporary American vernacular . . . instead of pompous period speech keeps the pages turning fast. . . ." ¾Publishers Weekly "[A] massive concoction of alternate history, high fantasy, and historical romance set in the sixteenth-century Venice of an alternate world . . . rich plotting, vivid characterization, and splendid evocation of Renaissance ethics and culture should make readers turn all the pages." ¾Booklist ". . . a sweeping alternate history. .. .The authors deftly wield the juxtaposition of fantasy and history into a finely crafted story." ¾Romantic Times "[A] top pick . . . fast-paced action and complex, believable settings." ¾The Bookwatch
