Acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Thanhha Lai won the National Book Award for Young People's Literature and the Newbery Honor for her debut novel, Inside Out and Back Again. This collection includes Inside Out and Back Again along with her newest novel, Listen, Slowly. Inside Out and Back Again: Inspired by the author's childhood experience of fleeing Vietnam after the Fall of Saigon and immigrating to Alabama, this coming-of-age debut novel told in verse has been celebrated for its touching child's-eye view of family and immigration. For all the ten years of her life, Hà has only known Saigon: the thrills of its markets, the joy of its traditions, and the warmth of her friends close by. But now the Vietnam War has reached her home. Hà and her family are forced to flee as Saigon falls, and they board a ship headed toward hope. In America, Hà discovers the foreign world of Alabama: the coldness of its strangers, the dullness of its food . . . and the strength of her very own family. Listen, Slowly: Twelve-year-old Mia's parents are sending her, along with her father, on a trip to Vietnam so she can learn more about her roots—and also help her grandmother figure out what really happened to Mia's grandfather during the Vietnam War. Since Mia barely knows the language or customs, she is desperately counting down the days until she can go back home. But the next few weeks are a life-changing experience. As time passes, Mia begins to have a change of heart, growing closer to her family and developing an understanding of a culture and an entire world which that she never really knew about.

Alex Sanders, founder of the Alexandrian tradition of Witchcraft and known to many as “King of the Witches,” lived a life of mythic proportions. Rising out of virtual obscurity to become one of the most charismatic and controversial figures of modern Wicca, Alex was many things to many people. A teacher, friend, father, husband. In short, a man like any other man. And yet his was a life lived without compromise. His personal vision of Witchcraft and his tireless love for the Goddess would influence thousands of seekers who would come after and inspire a new generation toward the Inner Mysteries. But Alex's saintly side was as grand as his demonic side. He could inspire hate as easily as love. Never one to shy away from the spotlight, Alex was ever the showman. He cared little for the opinion of others and kept true to his own ideal despite the consequences. His was a life well lived, but like any other life, was built of extremes - light, dark, joy, and despair. For the first time ever, Jimahl di Fiosa tells the true story of Alex Sanders - neither demon nor saint - but somewhere in between the two.

My unstructured upbringing, and cares to the wind attitude, led to my frequent incarceration, from childhood to adulthood, it’s a disturbing story, which is primarily aimed at the adult reading audience, who enjoy reading about reality situations and crime. I have always been a reader, and to a large extent, that helped me become a self taught person. Born on the banks of the Colorado River in Arizona, and raised up in the Marcos De Niza barrio projects in South Phoenix, I experienced the injustices of the cotton fields, Maricopa County Juvenile Detention Home, and Arizona State Industrial School at Fort Grant, Arizona. I wandered the desperate streets of Los Angeles, and the forlorn railroad tracks, alone, like a lost person without a purpose in life. I was locked up in the jails of Phoenix, and Los Angeles, before winding up in the California State penitentiary system. Upon my release, I struggled to stay out of the pen, and took the jobs that society at large would never want to take. Through numerous personal tragedies, incarcerations, and unfortunate circumstances, I lost control of my life. No one was ever able to change my destructive behavior. The changes when they occurred came from within me, when I could no longer cope, with the situations I had cast my self into. Looking back, I can now see what I couldn’t see, during those hopeless time periods. I was very fortunate, to finally be able to leave that life behind me, through relationships that believed in me, and successfully worked, and built myself a civil service work career, from which I retired. I now spend my days enjoying life’s simple pleasures, after all my previous tragic missteps. My objective in life now, is to become an accomplished writer.

Literacy Playshop

Building on her award-winning research (featured in Playing Their Way into Literacies) which emphasizes that play is an early literacy, Wohlwend has developed a curricular framework for children ages 3 to 8. The Literacy Playshop curriculum engages children in creating their own multimedia productions, positioning them as media makers rather than passive recipients of media messages. The goal is to teach young children to critically interpret the daily messages they receive in popular entertainment that increasingly blur toys, stories, and advertising. The first half of this practical resource features case studies that show how six early childhood teachers working together in teacher study groups developed and implemented play-based literacy learning and media production. The second half of the book provides a Literacy Playshop framework with professional development and classroom activities, discussion questions, and technology try-it sections. This user-friendly book will inspire and support teachers in designing their own Literacy Playshops.

Teaching Arabs Writing Self

Genre : Biography & Autobiography
File Size : 68.90 MB
Format : PDF, Mobi

Evelyn Shakir’s witty, wise, and beautifully written memoir explores her status as an Arab American woman, from the subtle bigotry she faced in Massachusetts as a second-generation Lebanese whose parents were not only foreign but eccentric, to the equally poignant blend of dislocation and homecoming she felt in Bahrain, Syria, and Lebanon, where she taught American literature to university students. In America, growing up in the 1950s and ‘60s, her world encompassed Boston’s Revere Beach (her uncle ran the famous Cyclone roller-coaster) and the world of academia (she has degrees from Wellesley, Harvard, and Boston University and was awarded a pair of Fulbrights). She effortlessly combines personal anecdote with cultural, political, and historical background, and is incapable of stereotyped thinking: one of the book’s many pleasures is the diversity she finds among the people she encounters in the Middle East, including not only students, but cab drivers, storekeepers, and the guys who make the spinach pies at the bakery down the street from her apartment. Perhaps best of all, Shakir is fun to read—and funny! Her tales of the family’s pride in the Cyclone (“the brawniest ride on the beach”) are priceless, as are her astute observations on her travels (Victoria’s Secret sells well in Damascus). Relentlessly honest, sometimes hard on people (and on herself), she always manages to uncover the humanity we all have in common. As Shakir explores her own identity, she leads the reader to an appreciation of the richness and complexity of being Arab American (or any mixed heritage) in an increasingly small world.

Many of my poems centre on the theme of having a positive or moral outcome. We are all the same in that we all feel emotions regardless of who we are. I have always been of the opinion to use rhyme as a simple means to express, as concisely as I can, the reasons why we feel the way that we do and perhaps the reasons why we do the things that we do. For whatever takes place in life, we are all susceptible to the same emotions—regardless of our varying experiences. In turn, it is because of what we feel and experience that make us who we are, or rather, who we have the potential to become—for better or worse. It is my intention that my poems serve as a reminder, or conversely, serve as an additional insight into the fact that we can all rise above our circumstances. Oft times we fall short and in doing so fail to see our worth or the worth in others—either because we fail to remember or fail to do, i.e, to remember to do what is necessary to help ourselves and to be there for others! I have sought to make these poems as insightful as I could, enough to see that we all deserve to be redeemed in one way or another!

The story of Ith is a tragedy of a young boy, left to face life alone. He is forced to come to terms with his own manifestations, to reclaim who he once used to be. With the help of his two friends, Ith learns we all have the ability to create what it is that destroys us, but has to learn on his own that we are also the creators. As the three friends soon find out, those manifestations are as different as each one of them. Now they must struggle to harness their new abilities and learn to balance their power before they are consumed by it. Its not about a problem in general, but a general problem. My hope is for people to walk way with a feeling that although we are culminations of our experiences we have the ability to overcome all obstacles we may put before ourselves.
