Mostly Homonyms Book Excerpt:

Homonyms are pairs of words (sometimes three or four words) that sound alike, but have different spellings and meanings, such as “side-sighed,” “bare-bear,” and “seen-scene.” This book has been written not only because homonyms pose a problem for many native speakers of English, but because they are also particularly troublesome for learners of English as a second language. This collection does not contain every homonym, but it does contain many of the most common ones. Mostly Homonyms is a new treatment of a traditional topic that is easy to read and use without sacrificing academic relevance. It is intended not only for anyone who wishes to ascertain the correct spelling and usage of a homonym, whether non-native learners of English or native speakers of English, but also for people who just love words.

The Mechanics of Writing Book Excerpt:

Do Commas Matter? Consider the story about my friends were heir to Uncle Josef's estate. Well, Josef wasn't really anyone's uncle, but that's what everyone called him. Uncle Josef's Last Will and testament read, I leave my entire estate to my dear friends Robert, Rosie, Charley and Sophie. The problem? Robert and Rosie filed a lawsuit staring that Charley and Sophie together were due a third of Uncle Josef's estate. Why? Uncle Josef hadn't placed a comma between Charley and Sophie. The judge agreed. Anyone who ever know uncle Josef has been careful about their pauses ever since. At last! A book on punctuation that is not a mere reference book: rather, this book invites readers on a personal journey... meant to be read cover-to-cover, this book effectively takes he mystery out of punctuation and provides practice on essential writing skills. --Elisabeth Anderson, Writing Instructor, College of DuPage A straight-forward handbook that has been infinitely more useful than any handbook or workbook I've used in college. --Dominie Schiralli, Fine Arts Major, Indiana University Northwest Students who used this method had a much easier time with composition. Because they understood grammar and mechanics, they could focus on building their writing skills. This is a great method producing fantastic results. --Peggy Patlan, Former Director of Education, Fox College The Mechanics of Writing is a manual of basic rules that actually builds writing skills, and my composition students who have used the unique method this book presents sing its praises! --Erika Mikkall, Writing Instructor, Indiana University Northwest

Cognition Brain and Consciousness Book Excerpt:

A textbook for psychology, neuroscience, pre-medical students, and everybody interested in the neuroscience of cognition. A wave of new research is transforming our understanding of the human mind and brain. Many educational fields now require a basic understanding of the new topic of cognitive neuroscience. However, available textbooks are written more for biology audiences than for psychology and related majors. This text aims to bridge that gap. A background in biology of neuroscience is not required. The thematic approach builds on widely understood concepts in psychology, such as working memory, selective attention, and social cognition. Edited by two leading experts in the field, the book guides the reader along a clear path to understand the latest findings. FEATURES: Written specifically for psychology, pre-medical, education and neuroscience undergraduate and graduate students The thematic approach builds on on accepted concepts, not presuming a background in neuroscience or biology Includes two Appendices on brain imaging and neural networks written by Thomas Ramsoy and Igor Aleksander Introduces the brain in a step-by-step, readable style, with gradually increasing sophistication Richly illustrated in full color with clear and detailed drawings that build the brain from top to bottome, simplifying the layout of the brain for students Pedagogy includes exercises and study questions at the end of each chapter Written specifically for psychology, pre-medical, education and neuroscience undergraduate and graduate students The thematic approach builds on on accepted concepts, not presuming a background in neuroscience or biology Includes two Appendices on brain imaging and neural networks written by Thomas Ramsoy and Igor Aleksander Introduces the brain in a step-by-step, readable style, with gradually increasing sophistication Richly illustrated in full color with clear and detailed drawings that build the brain from top to bottom, simplifying the layout of the brain for students Pedagogy includes exercises and study questions at the end of each chapter, including drawing exercises

Ducky Diary Two Book Excerpt:

All Ducky wants is the comfort of his family—but when they’re around, he feels lonelier than ever Ducky has been worried about Alex ever since the party at Jay’s, when Alex “accidentally” tried to hurt himself. He can’t talk to Sunny about it—she’s got enough going on with her terminally ill mom. Jay is still hanging with the Cro Mags, the jocks who push Ducky around. And Ducky’s older brother, Ted, just wouldn’t understand. Fortunately, Christmas is around the corner and his parents are coming back from Ghana, so Ducky will finally have the family support he’s desperately been missing. But when they return, the McCraes don’t seem to care about what’s been going on in Ducky’s world, either, and can’t wait to leave again. With no one to turn to for advice, Ducky decides to confront Alex—and his deepest fears are confirmed. This time, there’s no mistaking Alex’s actions for an accident. This ebook features an illustrated personal history of Ann M. Martin, including rare images from the author’s collection. Ducky: Diary Two is the 10th book in the California Diaries, which also includes Amalia: Diary Two and Dawn: Diary Three.

3 Swords Book Excerpt:

Japonica F. Edmonds Smith is a seasoned writer of poetry, prose, and inspirational short stories. In God’s now latter blessings rain! I shall continue to seek the Father in order to give His people divine revelation in their thoughts as well as in their walk within their lives. It is the Father Jehovah that inspires us spiritually to draw the reader inward, in order to have an intimate walk within our heart to walk with Him. It is without question that it is God who awakens one’s heart to seek His son, Jesus. It is He that wants His plan and purpose to be fulfilled in our lives and to show us that in the midst of life trials, there is still a word from the Father. God has always been concerned about you, the saints of God in Christ Jesus. He loves you with an everlasting love. He showed humanity His agape love, when He thought it not robbery to give His Son, Jesus, to take our place, by being on the cross. That was designed for the sins of humanity ... each and every one of us individually! Thank God for His Son! We have been redeemed by His blood! IT IS FINISHED! His immeasurable love raised Jesus from the dead. Hallelujah! For He sent forth His Son that we might have life and life that more abundantly, so that we will have true intimacy, fellowship, communion, and relationship with Jesus. After all is said and done, after we have repented, we shall have true forgiveness from our sins, thereby receiving healing, growth, and restoration for ourselves as we restore love to one another with forgiveness! With the sword of the spirit in my mouth, I decree as well as command, that I am a victorious woman of God, without any constraints to do the will of the Father Jehovah in Jesus’ name. Amen! It is God’s will for all the saints of God to seek and to save those who are lost—to teach the found to go after the lost, so that all shall be saved and none perish.

Still Learning to Read Book Excerpt:

Foreword by Colby Sharp In the decade since the first edition of Still Learning to Read was published, the prevalence of testing and the Common Core State Standards have changed what is expected of both teachers and students. The new edition of Still Learning to Read focuses on the needs of students in grades 3-6 in all aspects of reading workshop, including reading workshop, read-aloud, classroom design, digital tools, fiction, nonfiction, and close reading. The book stays true to its original beliefs of slowing down and knowing our readers, but it also takes into account the sense of urgency that changing times and standards impose on classrooms. This edition examines current trends in literacy, includes a new section on intentional instructional planning, and provides expanded examples of mini-lessons and routines that promote deeper thinking about learning. It also includes a brand new chapter on scaffolding for reading nonfiction and showcases the authors' latest thinking on close reading and text complexity. Online videos provide glimpses into classrooms as students make book choices, work in small groups, and discuss their reading notebooks. Expanded and updated book lists, recommendations for digital tools, lesson cycles, and sections specifically written for school leaders round out this foundational resource.
