A documentary crew has descended upon Westside Middle School to detail the life of an average seventh grader and his classmates. What they uncover, though, is far from average. Mostly, it is upper average along with moments of extreme average, highlighted by severalminutes of total epicness. Trevor Jones has been preparing for the start of seventh grade his entire summer. But he is NOT ready for the news his best friend, Libby, drops on him at the bus stop: he needs to branch out and make new friends. Oh, and he must ask a girl to the fall dance. By the end of the day. Trevor decides that he would rather squirt hot sauce in his eyes than attend the dance. Everything changes, though, when he meets mysterious new student Molly. Trevor starts to think that going to the dance maybe wouldn't be the worst thing ever. But with detention-wielding teachers, school gossips, and, worst of all, eighth graders conspiring against him, Trevor will have to do the one thing he wasn't prepared to do: be epic.Book Details:Format: HardcoverPublication Date: 6/19/2012Pages: 288Reading Level: Age 9 and Up
Reading the classics isn't easy. Students often balk at the difficult syntax, unfamiliar settings, and descriptive passages. Length alone keeps some books out of the curriculum. For a teacher to persist - sometimes coaxing, sometimes driving - requires an act of will. In Classics in the Classroom Carol Jago provides practical ideas for making these challenging texts come alive for contemporary students. Continuing in the tradition of her popular book With Rigor for All, Jago argues that all students, not just those enrolled in honors classes, deserve to read great literature. To make this happen requires artfully crafted lessons that address specific textual challenges. In Classics in the Classroom Jago shares her lesson plans and materials for teaching: vocabulary character study story grammar literary elements metaphorical thinking Jago also offers practical wisdom for helping all students learn and enjoy great literature. Simply assigning books is not enough. Teachers need an instructional plan that makes difficult texts accessible. Book Details:Format: PaperbackPublication Date: 6/9/2004Pages: 192
What Is a Liquid?Concepts that describe the basic physics of liquids are explained in five to fifteen-word sentences that define what a liquid is and what it is not. The properties of liquids are also described. The first page introduces matter, and a series of introductory pages put a liquid within the larger context of matter. Colorful photographs of young children and adults accompany the descriptions of each characteristic of a liquid. Two pages at the end of the book suggest an activity demonstrating that an amount of liquid may look smaller or greater, depending on the shape of its container. A list of six "Fun Facts" about liquids follows, with a glossary and an index concluding the book. This book is part of the "First Step Nonfiction States of Matter" series and would be a good addition to a preschool and/or early elementary science program.
