Every year, thousands of young people face life after someone important to them has died. Created by Winston's Wish, Out of the Blue is a collection of tried and tested ideas to help young people remember the person who died and help them express their thoughts and feelings about that event. This book was written and designed specifically for teenagers. Its aim is to help support them through the bereavement process using a range of activities. This is a companion volume to the popular Muddles, Puddles, and Sunshine, the activity book for bereaved children. By adding photos, drawings, and words, the workbook will become a lasting personal record of a loved one. Each activity features the words and stories of those who have experienced bereavement, reinforcing the message that "I'm not alone." Out of the Blue can be completed by a teenager alone, with the help of a family member, or with the appropriate professional.

"I am convinced. Children love to learn, regardless of their circumstances." So says the author of this inspirational new book. But when those circumstances include large classrooms of multiethnic, multilingual children from low socioeconomic backgrounds - not to mention the difficulties of controversial state curriculum frameworks and restricted budgets - how can a teacher effectively nurture that inherent love of learning? This was the dilemma Janine Chappell Carr confronted teaching language arts to first and second graders in southern California. The solutions she discovered may surprise you. Utilizing a blend of meaningful and interesting reading material, early writing practice, speaking, and explicit instruction, Carr disproves the media's insistence that American schools are typically ill-equipped to teach children from low-income neighborhoods. She describes her methods in great and practical detail - everything from getting the classroom ready for a new school year, to developing strategies for shared reading, to establishing a "writing studio." Samples of student work, plus narratives of how bilingual and English-only students rise to new challenges, offer vivid illustrations of Carr's methods in action. Assessment practices for closely monitoring students' progress are outlined, as well as novel ways to implement and maintain diagnostic and student-kept literacy portfolios. As a practical text, A Child Went Forth presents a thorough and realistic portrayal of life in an equitable classroom. As an inspirational one, it celebrates the voices of young learners and presents a wonderful model for success.
