Reclaim Your Headspace and Find Your One True Voice As a hospital chaplain, J.S. Park encountered hundreds of patients at the edge of life and death, listening as they urgently shared their stories, confessions, and final words. J.S. began to identify patterns in his patients’ lives—patterns he also saw in his own life. He began to see that the events and traumas we experience throughout life become deafening voices that remain within us, even when the events are far in the past. He was surprised to find that in hearing the voices of his patients, he began to identify his own voices and all the ways they could both harm and heal. In The Voices We Carry, J.S. draws from his experiences as a hospital chaplain to present the Voices Model. This model explores the four internal voices of self-doubt, pride, people-pleasing, and judgment, and the four external voices of trauma, guilt, grief, and family dynamics. He also draws from his Asian-American upbringing to examine the challenges of identity and feeling “other.” J.S. outlines how to wrestle with our voices, and even befriend them, how to find our authentic voice in a world of mixed messages, and how to empower those who are voiceless. Filled with evidence-based research, spiritual and psychological insights, and stories of patient encounters, The Voices We Carry is an inspiring memoir of unexpected growth, humor, and what matters most. For those wading through a world of clamor and noise, this is a guide to find your clear, steady voice.

Detoxing turns deadly when Hollywood agent Charlie Greene vows to prove that her troubled friend is no killer Agreeing to accompany her old friend Maggie to San Diego’s exclusive Marina del Sol spa is a no-brainer for harried Hollywood agent and single mom Charlie Greene. What could be bad about chilling in the spa’s purifying, gently eddying waters? Or being wrapped in seaweed and pampered with a granite body scrub and deep-tissue massage? Plenty, it turns out, when, after a lecture on orgasm after menopause, the camera-ready motivational speaker, Dr. Judy Judd, is found dead in one of the spa’s pools. Maggie becomes the prime suspect when it’s discovered that she was the last person to see the celebrity doctor alive. Charlie can barely get a coherent word out of her—especially with Maggie doped up on a dizzying cocktail of meds for her depression and wild mood swings. Then another murder rocks the spa. Joining forces with her ex-boyfriend, studly movie-star-turned-director Mitch Hilsten, Charlie fights to clear Maggie’s name. But she may not be able to stop the killer, who’s loose among the pampered detoxers and preparing for one final cleanse.

This popular text articulates a powerful theory of critical literacy—in all its complexity. Critical literacy practices encourage students to use language to question the everyday world, interrogate the relationship between language and power, analyze popular culture and media, understand how power relationships are socially constructed, and consider actions that can be taken to promote social justice. By providing both a model for critical literacy instruction and many examples of how critical practices can be enacted in daily school life in elementary and middle school classrooms, Creating Critical Classrooms meets a huge need for a practical, theoretically based text on this topic. Pedagogical features in each chapter • Teacher-researcher Vignette • Theories that Inform Practice • Critical Literacy Chart • Thought Piece • Invitations for Disruption • Lingering Questions New in the Second Edition • End-of-chapter "Voices from the Field" • More upper elementary-grade examples • New text sets drawn from "Classroom Resources" • Streamlined, restructured, revised, and updated throughout • Expanded Companion Website now includes annotated Classroom Resources; Text Sets; Resources by Chapter; Invitations for Students; Literacy Strategies; Additional Resources
