Book Summary: When life gets your goat, bring in the herd Jennifer McGaha never expected to own a goat named Merle. Or to be setting Merle up on dates and naming his doeling Merlene. She didn't expect to be buying organic yogurt for her chickens. She never thought she would be pulling camouflage carpet off her ceiling or rescuing opossums from her barn and calling it "date night." Most importantly, Jennifer never thought she would only have $4.57 in her bank account. When Jennifer discovered that she and her husband owed back taxes—a lot of back taxes—her world changed. Now desperate to save money, they foreclosed on their beloved suburban home and moved their family to a one-hundred-year-old cabin in a North Carolina holler. Soon enough, Jennifer's life began to more closely resemble her Appalachian ancestors than her upper-middle-class upbringing. But what started as a last-ditch effort to settle debts became a journey that revealed both the joys and challenges of living close to the land. Told with bold wit, unflinching honesty, and a firm foot in the traditions of Appalachia, Flat Broke with Two Goats blends stories of homesteading with the journey of two people rediscovering the true meaning of home.

Book Summary: 50 years of an iconic classic! This international bestseller and inspiration for a beloved movie is a heroic story of friendship and belonging. No one ever said life was easy.

And he knows that he can count on his friends—true friends who would do anything for him, like Johnny and Two-Bit. But not on much else besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang of rich kids whose idea of a good time is beating up on “greasers” like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect—until the night someone takes things too far. The Outsiders is a dramatic and enduring work of fiction that laid the groundwork for the YA genre. S. E. Hinton's classic story of a boy who finds himself on the outskirts of regular society remains as powerful today as it was the day it was first published.

Book Summary: Welcome to Chelsea Handler's world—a place where absurdity reigns supreme and a quick wit is the best line of defense. When Chelsea Handler needs to get a few things off her chest, she appeals to a higher power—vodka. Seems reasonable, when considering that she discovered her boyfriend was having an affair with a Peekapoo and she had to pretend to be honeymooning with her father in order to upgrade to first class. In this highly entertaining, deliciously skewed collection, Chelsea mines her past for stories about her family, relationships, and career that are at once singular and ridiculous. Whether she’s convincing her third-grade class that she has been chosen to play Goldie Hawn’s daughter in the sequel to Private Benjamin, deciding to be more egalitarian by dating a redhead, or looking out for a foulmouthed, rum-swilling little person who looks just like her...only smaller, Chelsea has a knack for getting herself into the most outrageous situations. Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea showcases the candor and irresistible turns of phrase that have made her one of the freshest voices in comedy today.

Book Summary: The trilogy begins in March of 1968, when the CIA and U.S. Army INSCOM (Intelligence Security Command) learn that the Soviet Union has developed a psychic program to conduct espionage on the U.S. intelligence community. To counter this threat, they begin forming their own psychic program from the research of a similar experiment, conducted two years prior at the University of Illinois by Dr. Albert Silvers. The task of bringing this program together is put upon Director Henry Miller, a CIA veteran, and Colonel James A. Stewart, the officer in charge of INSCOM and the military liaison officer to a multitude of Department of Defense contractors, located at Johnsville Naval Air-Warfare Development Center, in Warminster, Pennsylvania. Director Miller appoints Brian Crawford, a new recruit to the CIA and former standout football player at Penn State University, to represent the CIA on his behalf. Colonel Stewart and Agent Crawford become quick friends and set out to form the Psychic Research for the advancement of Intelligence gathering on Soviet and eastern bloc Military forces, or P.R.I.S.M. Although Colonel Stewart and Agent Crawford are both skeptical of the usefulness of psychics to the intelligence community, but their opinions sway after watching old file footage of a young boy seemingly' using psychic abilities to help his family escape Communist held East Germany, and film from the failed program conducted by Dr. Silvers, of young girl using Pyro-Kinesis and another young boy using mental telepathy. They work at a blinding pace to retrieve all the data they can on these subjects. The young boy who helps his family defect from East Germany, is now a U.S. citizen and has been recruited by Director Miller to be a part of P.R.I.S.M. However, the whereabouts of the two children that were involved with Dr. Silvers' program, like their identities, are unknown. Concluding that the two children would make an excellent addition to P.R.I.S.M., Colonel Stewart and Agent Crawford begin looking for information on the two. Since neither the CIA, nor INSCOM has any details on the two children, and Dr. Silvers was believed to have a nervous breakdown, killing himself and others in a city bus hijacking, Colonel Stewart recruits an old Army buddy, Scott Wallack, to be head of security on Project: P.R.I.S.M., and to gather any information he can from Dr. Silver's widow. Special Agent Wallack returns to Johnsville NADC with the personal journals of Dr. Silvers, and then the mystery begins to unfold. Agent Crawford comes across one of Dr. Silvers' journals and it has a particular effect on Project: P.R.I.S.M. He finds one word- Assyrr, written throughout the entire notebook. They discover that it is the name of an ancient demon that possesses its unwary victims through nightmares, ultimately driving the victim to end their own life, and the lives of others as well. Special Agent Wallack and his three man security team have an encounter with demonic influences, causing Agent Crawford to ask, "What does psychic research have to do with this demon?" The answer to that question remains a mystery, until the CIA recruit's an Exorcist/ Demonologist from the Catholic Church, Father Joseph Salomie. It becomes apparent that people with psychic abilities are in the evolutionary state of where God had ultimately planned for humanity to be. This would create a "Final Communion" with God and a world wide holy utopia. To prevent humanity from gaining such a precious ability, one in which he held so dear, but lost long ago, Lucifer sets out to halt this union of man and God. He unleashes his demonic horde to carry out his diabolical plan- a communion between humanity and himself! The members of Project: P.R.I.S.M. go head to head with the forces of evil, battling demons, political bureaucracy and enemy psychic agents, in an attempt to keep humanity on track for "Final Communion." But, will that communion be with God or Lucifer?

Book Summary: Children's literature can be a powerful way to encourage and empower EFL students but is less commonly used in the classroom than adult literature. This text provides a comprehensive introduction to children's and young adult literature in EFL teaching. It demonstrates the complexity of children's literature and how it can encourage an active community of second language readers: with multilayered picturebooks, fairy tales, graphic novels and radical young adult fiction. It examines the opportunities of children's literature in EFL teacher education, including: the intertexuality of children's literature as a gate-opener for canonised adult literature; the rich patterning of children's literature supporting Creative Writing; the potential of interactive drama projects. Close readings of texts at the centre of contemporary literary scholarship, yet largely unknown in the EFL world, provide an invaluable guide for teacher educators and student teachers, including works by David Almond, Anthony Browne, Philip Pullman and J.K.Rowling. Introducing a range of genres and their significance for EFL teaching, this study makes an important new approach accessible for EFL teachers, student teachers and teacher educators.

Writing Superheroes

Publisher : Teachers College Press

Number of Pages : 250

Category : Education

Viewed : 1096


Book Summary: Based on an ethnographic study in an urban classroom of 7- to 9-year olds, Writing Superheroes examines how young school children use popular culture, especially superhero stories, in the unofficial peer social world and in the official school literacy curriculum. In one sense, the book is about children "writing superheroes"-about children appropriating superhero stories in their fiction writing and dramatic play on the playground and in the classroom. These stories offer children identities as powerful people who do battle against evil and win. The stories, however, also reveal limiting ideological assumptions about relations between people-boys and girls, adults and children, people of varied heritages, physical demeanors, and social classes. The book, then, is also about children as "writing superheroes." With the assistance of their teacher, the observed children became superheroes of another sort, able to take on powerful cultural storylines. In this book, Anne Dyson examines how the children's interest in and conflicts about commercial culture give rise to both literacy and social learning, including learning how to participate in a community of differences.

Book Summary: This carefully crafted ebook: “THE DREAMLANDS SERIES: 20+ Gruesome Tales of Terror in One Premium Edition” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. This collection represents “The Dream Cycle” - Lovecraft's famous series of short stories & novellas.

Evidently all dreamers see the Dreamlands slightly differently, as Atal, High Priest of Ulthar, mentions that everyone has their own dreamland. In the same sentence he says the Dreamlands that many know is a "general land of vision." The Dreamlands are divided into four regions: The West contains the Steps of Deeper Slumber (descended via the "Cavern of Flame") and the Enchanted Woods by which many enter the Dreamlands. Other points of interest include the port of Dylath-Leen, one of the Dreamlands' largest cities; the town of Ulthar "where no man may kill a cat," the coastal jungle city of Hlanith, and the desert trading capital Illarnek. Here lies the fabled Land of Mnar, whose gray stones are etched with signs and where rise the ruins of the great Sarnath. The South, home of the isle of Oriab and the areas known as the Fantastic Realms. The East, home of Celephaïs, a city dreamt into being by its monarch Kuranes, greatest of all recorded dreamers, and the dangerous Forbidden Lands. The North, location of the feared Plateau of Leng, home of man-eating spiders and the satyr-like "Men of Leng".

Book Summary: WIKIPEDIA says: 'H.P. Lovecraft's reputation has grown tremendously over the decades, and he is now commonly regarded as one of the most important horror writers of the 20th century, exerting an influence that is widespread, though often indirect.' His tales of the tentacled Elder God Cthulhu and his pantheon of alien deities were initially written for the pulp magazines of the 1920s and '30s. These astonishing tales blend elements of horror, science fiction and cosmic terror that are as powerful today as they were when they were first published. THE NECRONOMICON collects together the very best of Lovecraft's tales of terror, including the complete Cthulhu Mythos cycle, just the way they were originally published. It will introduce a whole new generation of readers to Lovecraft's fiction, as well as being a must-buy for those fans who want all his work in a single, definitive volume.
