In Closing the Circle, Sean Walmsley offers education practitioners at all levels—district and school administrators, curriculum supervisors, staff developers, literacy coaches, classroom teachers, and special education teachers—a coherent framework along with practical advice for setting K–12 language arts expectations and for effectively guiding instruction, assessment, reporting, and data analysis. Distilled from the author's extensive experience working with schools and districts, the framework enables educators to prioritize literacy learning and work together more productively to achieve better literacy outcomes for all students. The innovative framework includes five major elements: (1) a set of clearly defined literacy attributes (concise expectations for what students should know, do, understand, and experience in the language arts); (2) instructional contributions that best support students, including struggling learners, in acquiring the attributes; (3) appropriate assessments for tracking students' progress; (4) reporting practices that clearly explain the progress achieved; and (5) rigorous analysis of data to inform instruction. The model embraces a broad conception of literacy and includes expectations for reading, writing, listening, and speaking as well as viewing and representing, making it especially suitable for learning in the digital era.

Tommy Marshall was eighteen when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and he enlisted, anxious to seek revenge, but the Army assigned him to a finance job in London where he languished as others fought the enemy. A chance encounter with Eisenhower landed Tommy in a combat unit and he found himself amongst those storming Omaha Beach on D-Day. What Tommy witnessed would change him forever; the loss of comrades creating a killing frenzy and heroics that won him the Congressional Medal of Honor. After the war Tommy tried to fit back into an America that was distancing itself from the scars of war. He married, started a family and a career, and pursued his newly won American dream. But that dream ultimately became a nightmare as his wife and son died and his career ended in bitterness. Years later, when Tommy entered the old soldier's home in Washington, D.C., he was resolved to spend his final years as a recluse. But when he returned to France for the 50th anniversary of D-Day, his perspective changed when he found the graves of his wartime buddies in Normandy and challenged himself to enjoy a life they had been denied. This is a story of the hope and promise wrought from war, of how its lessons changed those who fought it, and how a younger generation has much to learn from those who sacrificed for our prosperity and freedom.

Closing the Circle: A Memoir of Cuba, Exile, the Bay of Pigs and a Trans-Island Bike Journey is a family memoir in three parts intricately interwoven with historical events. The book is structured in 3 parts, somewhat akin to John McPhee's Coming Into the Country, where each part, though quite separate, complements each other in painting a picture of Alaska. Part I is the saga of the author's immediate family, beginning with his contractor grandfather's involvement under then-President Machado building first the National Theater, then the Carretera Central, Cuba's trans-island highway and Cuba's capitol building, and later the federal prison on the Isle of Youth where both Castro and two of the author's cousins, grunts in the Bay of Pigs invasion, did time eight years apart during the Cuban Missile Crisis-in the very same cell. His grandmother emigrated from the Canary Islands. His father, founding CFO of AIG, introduced VW to Cuba, and he-by chance-rented their first home in Havana to David Atlee Phillips, the CIA operative most responsible for the success of the overthrow of the Arbenz regime in Guatemala in 1954. Phillips was later put in charge of propaganda for the Bay of Pigs operation. The author's mom sparred with Hemingway. They lived next door to the mayor of Havana, a big power broker before the Batista coup of 1952. The family went into exile in 1960; and in 1972 the author planted the Cuban flag atop Mt. McKinley, North America's highest peak. In part II the author broadens the saga to his extended family: It focuses on the story of the Bay of Pigs from the perspective of two cousins, and their subsequent 20 month stint in Cuban prisons, followed by their-and yet another cousin's-exploits during the Kennedy administration's infiltration operations after their repatriation by JFK. One cousin was personally interrogated by Che Guevara after his capture at Playa Giron. This account of the Bay of Pigs is "the grunts' story." Finally, part III is the travelogue of a trans-island bike ride along the road the author's grandfather built, where he returns and connects with his family's memories, one of which was finding his grandmother's grave in the famous Cementerio Colon. The bike route included a detour to the Bay of Pigs area where he was able to physically connect with his cousins' battleground at Playa Larga. The bike ride took place in 2016 when the author led an educational reconnaissance group to Cuba. They stayed at a distant relative's home. The bike group included a variety of political perspectives, which made for lively discussions among the participants and with Cubans. Cuba is hot right now, and with the glacial reform process within the island-given a very slight nudge by Fidel's death-and relations with the US improved but perhaps slowing down, it will remain hot for the foreseeable future. There are many Cuba memoirs and there are many Cuba reportage books in print, this is one of the few that combines both genres. Eire's Waiting for Snow in Havana, probably the best-known Cuba memoir, is impressionistic verging on the magical realist; while Vidal's Boxing for Cuba is the Cuba memoir that most closely resembles parts of this book. The style is straightforward, conversational and anecdotal, with sometimes outlandish humor.

This book analyzes how an anomalous confluence of federal environmental, administrative and Indian law exacerbates environmental injustice in Indian country, but also offers its most promising solution. The modern environmental law paradigm of federal-state partnerships falters in Indian country where state regulatory jurisdiction is constrained by federal Indian law. A resulting void of effective environmental regulation threatens the cultural survival of American Indian tribes, who face air and water contamination from a legacy of federally encouraged natural resource development. A potential solution for closing the circle of national environmental protection accords sovereign tribal governments a state-like status. The book examines comprehensively the tribal treatment-as-a-state approach first developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and later codified by Congress in amendments to most of the major environmental laws, as well as federal cases brought by states and non-Indians challenging the EPA's and tribes' authority to make binding value judgments about Indian country environmental protection.
