The death and Life of the great American School system

Auteur: Diane Ravitch

Taal: engels

APASSIONATE PLEA to preserve and renew public education, The Death and Life of the Great American School System is a radical change of heart from one of America's best-known education experts. Diane Ravitch—former assistant secretary of education and a leader in the drive to create a national curriculum—examines her career in education reform and repudiates positions that she once staunchly advocated. Drawing on over forty years of research and experience, Ravitch critiques today's most popular ideas for restructuring schools, including privatization, standardized testing, punitive accountability, and the feckless multiplication of charter schools. She shows conclusively why the business model is not an appropriate way to improve schools. Using examples from major cities like Ncw York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Denver, and San Diego, Ravitch makes the case that public education today is in peril.

Ravitch includes clear prescriptions for improving
America's schools:
-leave decisions about schools to educators, not
politiCians or businessmen
-devise a truly national curriculum that sets out
what children in every grade should be learning
-expect charter schools to educate the kids who
need help the most, not to compete with public schools
-pay teachers a fair wage for their work, not "merit pay"
-based on deeply flawed and. unreliable test scores
encourage family involvement in education from
an early age

The Death and Life of the Great American School System offers more than just an analysis of the state of play of the American education system. It is a must-read for any stakeholder in the future of American schooling.

The Deniers

Auteur: Lawrence Solomon

taal: engels

The world-renowned scientists who stood up against global warming hysteria, political persecution and fraud*

Tells the shocking stories of more than three-dozen world-renowned scientists whose work refutes global warming hysteria and gives the lie to claims from Al Gore and co. that “the science is settled. ” Author Lawrence Solomon—an internationally renowned environmentalist—shows these men have faced a vicious campaign of intimidation by those who, like Al Gore, seek to pervert science and silence dissent to advance their own political agenda. Some have been intimidated into silence. Others have seen their funding denied and their labs shut down as a result of political pressure. But the testimony of their work remains too powerful to deny. Extensively footnoted including URLs to crucial scientific papers (and lively e-mails detailing the inside politics of global warming) and lavishly illustrated with charts and graphs, The Deniers will do more than spark controversy. The Deniers is destined to become the most reliable and provocative source book on the real global warming debate.

The Diaper-Free Baby

Taal: engels

Auteur: Christine Gross-Loh

Imagine infants free from painful diaper rash, new parenthood without thousands of dollars wasted in diapering costs, toilet training that is natural and noncoercive, and, most important, happier babies and parents As Christine Gross-Loh reveals in her progressive, enlightening book, all this is possible and more. Infants are born with the ability to communicate their need to go, just as they communicate hunger or sleepiness. Gross-Loh, a mother of two children who were diaper-free at eighteen and fifteen months, uses the tenets of elimination communication, or EC, to teach parents how to identify and respond to their baby or toddler's natural cues. Unlike the all-or-nothing approach of some parenting books, The Diaper-Free Baby addresses three categories of parents: full-time, part-time, and occasional EC'ers. Parents can practice EC as much or as little as fits their family and lifestyle. A support group within a book, The Diaper-Free Baby also includes inspiring testimonials throughout every chapter. Parents who have successfully practiced EC identify common struggles, share experiences and problem-solving tips, and provide encouragement for those new to the technique. Their motivational stories together with Gross-Loh's practical advice will appeal to all parents interested in a fresh alternative to traditional toilet training.

The Divine Comedy (Volume 2)

Auteur: Dante Alighieri
Volume 2: Purgatory

Beginning with Dante's liberation from Hell, Purgatory relates his ascent, accompanied by Virgil, to the Mount of Purgatory - a mountain of nine levels, formed from rock forced upwards when God threw Satan into depths of the earth. As he travels through the first seven levels, Dante observes the sinners who are waiting for their release into Paradise, and through these encounters he is himself transformed into a stronger and better man. For, it is only when he has learned from each of these levels that he can ascend to the gateway to Heaven: the Garden of Eden. The second part of one of the greatest epic poems, Purgatory is an enthralling Christian allegory of sin, redemption and ultimate enlightenment.

The Doctor's Diet

Taal: engels
The Doctor's Diet is Dr. Travis Stork's solution to unhealthy eating an American epidemic with a death toll higher than that of car accidents, drug abuse, smoking, and gun violence combined. Dr. Travis believes if you eat the typical American diet, it may very well kill you. He is genuinely concerned about what he considers to be a true crisis, so he created a flexible and workable diet plan that will help readers lose weight, restore health, prevent disease and hopefully, add years to their lives. Because he understands the urgency of this weight crisis, he created a simple 14-day jump-start plan, aptly named the STAT Plan, so readers can start losing weight right away.

Dr. Travis makes balanced nutrition simple by breaking it down to his 10 Food Prescriptions, which will allow food to heal and restore your body, instead of contributing to the problem. Following the STAT Plan is the 14-day RESTORE Plan, designed to keep the pounds coming off and restore health while allowing you to eat a wide variety of foods. Once you've met your weight goal, you'll follow the MAINTAIN Plan, which helps you stay slim while enjoying delicious meals. With heavy emphasis on great-tasting meals, easy-to-follow recipes and enough flexibility that anyone can follow along (including vegetarians, gluten-free individuals, meat lovers, and everyone in between), this is a diet that can work for you.
