With a simple, rhyming text and beautifully reproduced paintings, NO ONE SAW explores modern art. Each painting highlights the way in which the artist looked at the world in his or her own way. One look at the oversized details of her calla lilies convinces us hat no one saw flowers like Georgia O'Keeffe. A city becomes art when looked at by Kandinsky. And Miro shows us the flight of a bird like we've never seen it before. The message is a clear one: no two people see the world in exactly the same way. There is beauty waiting to be seen and shared by you, so be creative and, more important, be yourself!Book Details:Format: PaperbackPublication Date: 10/1/2001Pages: 32Reading Level: Age 5 and Up

At 22, as he prepares to enter the clergy, Charles Darwin is offered the position of naturalist on the HMS Beagle’s expedition to South America. But in 1831, a sea voyage is as unthinkable as a modern-day foray into outer space. His father objects to the outlandish scheme, but with the help of a persuasive uncle, Darwin eventually receives permission to sail. And so he sets off, fully expecting to take his orders at the end of the two-year expedition. Instead, he returns in five, a full-fledged genius who would one day write a book that truly changed the world. What Mr. Darwin Saw is a lively and accessible look at the journey of the HMS Beagle. Readers learn about life on board the ship for Darwin, the captain and crew, and the expedition’s artist; their encounters with slavery; how specimens were collected; the scientific basis for the Biblical flood; Darwin’s adventures in Galapagos, Australia, and other countries and continents; and much more.

Teachers try to help their students learn. But why do they make the particular teaching choices they do? What resources do they draw upon? What accounts for the success or failure of their efforts? In How We Think, esteemed scholar and mathematician, Alan H. Schoenfeld, proposes a groundbreaking theory and model for how we think and act in the classroom and beyond. Based on thirty years of research on problem solving and teaching, Schoenfeld provides compelling evidence for a concrete approach that describes how teachers, and individuals more generally, navigate their way through in-the-moment decision-making in well-practiced domains. Applying his theoretical model to detailed representations and analyses of teachers at work as well as of professionals outside education, Schoenfeld argues that understanding and recognizing the goal-oriented patterns of our day to day decisions can help identify what makes effective or ineffective behavior in the classroom and beyond.Book Details:Format: PaperbackPublication Date: 10/7/2010Pages: 264

We weren't always like this. We used to be average New York City high school sophomores. Until our homeroom went for flu shots. We were prepared for some side effects. Maybe a headache. Maybe a sore arm. We definitely didn't expect to get telepathic powers. But suddenly we could hear what everyone was thinking. Our friends. Our parents. Our crushes. Now we all know that Tess is in love with her best friend, Teddy. That Mackenzie cheated on Cooper. That, um, Nurse Carmichael used to be a stripper. Since we've kept our freakish skill a secret, we can sit next to the class brainiac and ace our tests. We can dump our boyfriends right before they dump us.

Provoked by the horrors he saw every day, Charles Dickens wrote novels that were originally intended as instruments for social change — to save his country’s children. Charles Dickens is best known for his contributions to the world of literature, but during his young life, Dickens witnessed terrible things that stayed with him: families starving in doorways, babies being “dropped” on streets by mothers too poor to care for them, and a stunning lack of compassion from the upper class. After his family went into debt and he found himself working at a shoe-polish factory, Dickens soon realized that the members of the lower class were no different than he, and, even worse, they were given no chance to better themselves. It was then that he decided to use his greatest talent, his writing ability, to tell the stories of those who had no voice.Book Details:Format: HardcoverPublication Date: 11/29/2011Pages: 160Reading Level: Age 12 and Up
