The one guide every creative nonfiction writer needs to turn to when being "creative." Writers of memoir and narrative nonfiction are experiencing difficult days with the discovery that some well-known works in the genre contain exaggerations--or are partially fabricated. But what are the parameters of creative nonfiction? Keep It Real begins by defining creative nonfiction. Then it explores the flexibility of the form--the liberties and the boundaries that allow writers to be as truthful, factual, and artful as possible. A succinct but rich compendium of ideas, terms, and techniques, Keep It Real clarifies the ins and outs of writing creative nonfiction. Starting with acknowledgment of sources, running through fact-checking, metaphor, and navel gazing, and responsibilities to their subjects, this book provides all the information you need to write with verve while remaining true to your story.

Keep It Real: The Life Story of James “Jimmy” Palao, “The King of Jazz” by Joan Singleton This book will become a major resource for anyone interested in the beginning history of Jazz. It was written to develop an understanding of some of the events that caused Jazz to prosper and to give credit to an important figure, Jimmy Palao, who gave his life to developing, teaching and sharing his musical skills. It was Jimmy Palao who taught Buddy Bolden how to read and work with the cornet. Jimmy later played in the Buddy Bolden Band and the teacher learned from the student. Buddy became ill in 1905 and never played again... Buddy Bolden never recorded or published any of his music. This could have been the end of his friend’s music but Jimmy Palao had fallen in love with this style of music and he became leader of the Imperial Band and began to develop this music. It was believed that Jimmy Palao was the first to coin the term “Jazz” This biography explores the life and career path from 1897 to 1925 of Jimmy Palao who became the Leader and Director of the Original Creole Orchestra, one of the greatest musical organizations of this era; the first band to travel to over 75 cities in the U.S. and Canadian cities and gain national prominence. He was the first King of Jazz. He developed the syncopated 4/4 beat and created collective improvisation and allowed the band members to explore new instrumental techniques. These were the sounds of real Jazz. This is a... candid and somewhat revealing, look at the relationships between the Jazzmen of the Original Creole Orchestra, and the culture and the social dynamics that brought them together. . It takes us into the beginning of the Roaring Twenties as Jimmy Palao’s career continued to blossom and was cut short at the early age of 45 years old. This book is Great Reading... It’s thought provoking.... It’s a research in history that reads like a novel. Let’s Together Celebrate over 100 Years of Jazz!!! America’s National Treasure

This book introduces a set of pedagogical practices designed to assist adolescent English learners in developing their English skills in a way that honors and leverages their native languages and cultures. Responding to the linguistic and educational diversity of adolescents, the R.E.A.L. (Relevant, Engaging, and Affirming Literacy) method offers teachers a range of scalable activities, reading lists, and other resources, along with numerous suggestions on how to adapt them for students’particular needs. By sharing experiences from actual secondary English classes, Stewart presents diverse learners making meaningful connections to texts and responding through writing, speaking, and other artistic means. These students are developing high levels of literacy, English language skills, and even biliteracy through R.E.A.L. instruction that all English teachers can use. “Keep It R.E.A.L. is a must-read for secondary teachers and teacher educators who want their students to appreciate literacy as a critical resource for lifelong learning. This is truly an invaluable resource for teachers of multilingual youth.” —Christian Faltis, chair and professor, The Ohio State University “A must-have resource! The powerful student-centered and teacher-friendly framework Mary Amanda Stewart offers in this book makes building literacy skills for adolescent English learners achievable and impactful.” —Andrea Honigsfeld, associate dean and director, Molloy College, New York

Offers the "village of hope" as a framework where pastors and leaders offer the church as a place of support, guidance, and accountability for youth, parents, and other adults who are raising today's black youth. The first edition of Working with Black Youth, edited by Charles R. Foster and Grant S. Shockley, was published in 1989. Since that time the challenges for black youth have only intensified and grown in complexity. A burning question of Black churches continues to be: How can we effectively ministry with our youth? Their world is fast-paced, media-centered, techno-savvy, hip-hop, violent, and plagued with HIV/AIDS. The Church wants to guide youth toward a Christian identity with values for wise decision-making. Youth want their questions heard. They want to see hope modeled. They need leadership opportunities. While there are no quick, easy, or singular approaches to working with black youth, there can be a framework to offer vital and relevant youth ministry. This book proposes a comprehensive framework that has evolved over ten years of annual youth and family convocations of the Interdenominational Theological Center as well as youth and family forums and activities related to the Youth Hope-Builders Academy of ITC. The framework builds on the image of the congregation as a "village of hope" where pastors and leaders get real to offer the church as a place of support, guidance, and accountability for youth, parents, and other adults who are raising today's black youth.

Savvas Marangidis demonstrates how our life experiences can make us who we are today through his collection of thought provoking poetry. His life struggles and experiences reflected in his poetry are not as individual to him as one may think.They are life’s true realities and their manifestations seen by him. His reflections depicting life is experienced by many of the young today everywhere around the world.Those who have been met with temptation and succumb to them.The crime,the addictions and the element of self value.Those that hide it and those that don’t. He writes how we succumb to society’s stronghold,we surrender ourselves to modern day mechanics, forgetting who we truly are as human beings.We hold down regular jobs,follow the mainstream and even lose ourselves in this. Savvas swam against the tide in the search for something else believing there must be more to life.What was his truth and what was his reality? A journey frought with opposition and humility by those who didn’t understand him or want to.He attempted to join man and society and become part of modern day politics.He married,divorced,held down a regular job. But he wanted more,so he strayed questioning everything and everyone. However,unlike many of us,he sought to seek his true identity;his truths.So, he separated himself from the world as he knew it then and ventured into the unknown world that beckoned him.

Dr. Scott is a living and walking testimony of Gods unconditional, unfathomable love, and his awesome grace and mercy toward the children of men. For Dr. Scott, eyes have not begun to see, neither ears begun to hear, nor even has it begun to penetrate the minds and hearts of men what the Almighty God has in store for those of us who love him. That means the good, the bad, the ugly, and the unexplainable. This is why and how she continues to keep it real. As an author, she can be as raw as she is prolific. So this becomes the challenge of both her person and her writing as the author. This then, creates the challenge to her readers as well. Although you may think you know what Dr. Scott is about to say, you can not, because the Holy Spirit works in her in such a way that she may just take you another way. And, isnt that the way of the Spirit of God. If you ever get the chance to speak to her, and ask her, shell simply tell you, Im just saying what Im saying, and Im just talking about what Im talking about! This is what this author is all about. . If you ever have the opportunity to sit under her teaching ministry, as so many of us have, you will find a powerful little woman of depth, not simply based on her many years of academia, but through the school of life. Which we all agree is one of the best teachers around. However, when you talk with Dr. Scott, she will strongly suggest that yes, experiencing life is a keeping it real kind of teacher, but in fact, no one can do it better than Jesus, nobody can do it like the Lord.

…In this book, Keeping it Real in an Unreal World, Michael Jean Nystrom-Schut examines the reality of illusion (or the illusion of reality?). He talks about how we can come to pursue our best efforts at finding something that resembles a path through the foggy haze of an earth-dwellers life, and the fuzzy twists and turns and convolutions of existence. If our voyage is one of expectation, our reality will become just that. Its a perceptual thing; how we each perceive it is a highly individual matter. If you keep an open mind, Michael's promise is that rewards will come out of your enthusiastic reading participation. Dont assume you know anything whatsoever about real life; it goes better for us when we think of it like that. In reality, each day we start out new, and each new day presents itself with an entirely new set of illusions. In sorting out the illusions, we have the chance to make things happen in our lives. The book is presented in five sections. To begin with, in Section One the whole matter of reality and illusion is examined. The next section talks about the individual self, and what reality means to him. The third section explores reality close to home, in the lives of our mind, and with our friends and family. Section Four moves into the outer world, where a global view of reality is addressed. Finally, in the last section (Five), Michael takes on the great and perennial metaphysical questions, doing his best to apply the human notions of God and Universe to the world of the thinking self. Michael admits he is only sharing thoughts on how he narrowly see things. You will hopefully have your own spin on reality, different from everyone else in the world. Keeping it real comes in many shapes, sizes and colors. Each of us looks at it uniquely, and what you are about to experience in this book is merely one tiny sliver of reality perspective. When you are finished reading the book, it is Michael's hope that you will have given more consideration to the matter of whats real and not real for yourself. And that you will take valuable living information from it. Reality. Its a funny thing. How we negotiate our way through it goes a long ways towards whether we adapt or fail in our experiences and encounters with life. Enjoy your journey, both through the book, and through life!
