Stealing First is the story of Jody Benson, a man of thirty-plus who is looking back on his life as a high school-aged boy in the small Nebraska town of South Bend. Living and teaching high school in Oregon during the mid-1970s, he takes a summer trip "home" in search of the impulses that made him the man he has become. He has unease about him that he (and his wife) hope this journey can assuage. Back in South Bend with his two sons, Jody visits once again the sites of some memorable experiences during the most impressionable of his growing years. The story moves back and forth between the 1950s and 1970s as he recalls significant events in his life as a young Nebraskan and tries to fit together the puzzle of his own existence. Teenage acts of mischief, scenes of first love, athletic exploits-Jody remembers them all. Old friend and neighbor Marian McKnight, still vibrant and insightful in her late sixties, provides Jody with invaluable observations, commentary and encouragement-as she did for the teenage Jody-and old pals Bo and Harley help him re-live some of their times together. His father's words, "You can't steal first," provide a guiding-and limiting-force in his life. In the end a tragic event shakes Jody from his lethargy and, ironically, leads him to self-discovery and even a measure of contentment.

In the end, the student's resiliency will determine their futures. Learn to expect success from your sons and daughters, and you'll never have to hear those fatal words: Your Kid's Too Soft. Your Kid's Too Soft can help you in developing the toughness necessary for your child to overcome the obstacles in athletics and life. —Don Meyer, Men's college basketball all-time wins leader and the recipient of the Jimmy V.

Army Brat, Army Bride, Civilian: A Life reveals the ups and downs of military living through the experiences of one who was both a sergeant’s daughter and an officer’s wife. The military teaches many lessons but not how to transition to civilian life after more than thirty years of moving around in the Army, including attending five different high schools as a teenager. While in the Army, families learn to adapt to renting or buying an apartment or house in town or to being assigned a set of Army quarters on a military post. If in quarters, they must not paint walls or install carpet or leave holes in walls where pictures used to hang. Although the Army is a highly structured organization, flexibility is a key word for its families. Dealing with snafus, making decisions which seem right at the time but turn out to be trumped by the demands of the military, adjusting to new places, and making new friends every two to three years are all part of living the military life. Yet the adventure and excitement of this life are evident throughout.

Early Childhood Curriculum for All Learners: Integrating Play and Literacy Activities is designed to teach early childhood professionals about the latest research on play and early literacy and then to show them practical methods for adapting this research to everyday classroom practices that will encourage the development of learning skills. The authors link solid, play-based research to specific developmentally appropriate practices. By combining these two areas, the text demonstrates that academic learning and play activities are highly compatible, and that children can and do develop academic skills through play. In addition, the text focuses on socio-dramatic play, a recently acknowledged, essential aspect of child-initiated play interactions. It provides specific strategies that link these interactive behaviors with the early academic skills needed for the initial primary grades. Implementation of the information presented in this book will enable children to experience a richer transition into primary education classrooms.

Contributors: Wolfgang Althof, Karen D. Benson, Marvin W. Berkowitz, Donald Blumenfeld-Jones, Elizabeth Campbell, Julie Canniff, Mary Crawford, Lana Daly, Rebecca Evers, Cathie Fallona, Gary Fenstermacher, Anthony Holter, Lisa E. Johnson, Daniel Lapsley, Darcia Narvaez, Virginia Navarro, Larry Nucci, Joy Pelton, Virginia Richardson, Don Senneville, David Shields, Barbara Stengel, Jonatha W. Vare, Marilyn Watson Matthew Sanger is associate professor of Educational Foundations in the College of Education at Idaho State University. Richard Osguthorpe is associate professor and chair of the Department of Curriculum, Instruction, and Foundational Studies at Boise State University. “The editors and contributors help us appreciate that many teachers come to the work precisely because of abiding moral commitments —to help others, to make a difference in the lives of the young, to give something back to society. But they also help us see how crucial it is to give candidates systematic support in coming to grips with the meaning of these commitments, and how to translate them into pedagogical action for the well-being of students and society alike.” —From the Foreword by David T. Hansen “This book sheds light into the core of professional morality. It should be a ‘must’ for each student teacher and for each practitioner around school life.” —Fritz Oser, professor of education and educational psychology, University of Fribourg, Switzerland “Lest we forget that teaching is inherently moral work, Sanger and Osguthorpe explain what this means for teachers and teacher educators. The combination of conceptual analysis and cases of teacher education practice make this book a valuable resource and welcome antidote to the current preoccupation with test scores.” —Sharon Feiman-Nemser, Brandeis University
