ERIC - A Magical Encounter: Latino Children s Literature in the Classroom

A Magical Encounter: Latino Children's Literature in the Classroom. Second Edition.

This book aims to help teachers bring literature to the classroom as a vehicle for language and concept development, creative expression, and the development of higher thinking skills while promoting the joy of reading. Most examples in the book were selected to make Latino authors more visible to teachers, as well as to provide experiences of Latino culture that enhance Latino children's self-esteem and broaden the horizons of non-Latino children. Chapter 1 reflects on the role of children's and adolescents' literature in the language arts curriculum; presents basic tenets of transformative education, relating them to books for children and adolescents; explains the creative reading methodology; and describes what a transformative language arts classroom would look like. Chapter 2 reviews the evolution of Latino literature for children and adolescents in the United States, citing numerous Latino authors. Chapter 3 describes the roles of various literary genres in the classroom, including oral traditional folklore, poetry and songs, plays and dramatic games, and narrative and other forms of prose. Chapter 4 details classroom activities for exploring literature: preparing to share a book; reading the book; creative dialogue; promoting language development, discoveries within and beyond the book, creative written expression, creative visual expression, and dramatic expression; home-school interaction; culminating activities; an author's visit; and evaluation. Appendices present Hispanic proverbs and sayings, and story beginnings and endings. (Contains extensive references and suggested readings, a 19-page bibliography of children's and adolescents' literature by Latino and Latina writers, a name and title index, and a subject index) (SV)

"Encounter With Tiber " (ISBN 0-340-62451-5) is a 1996 science fiction novel written by former astronaut Buzz Aldrin and science fiction writer John Barnes

Evidence is found of a species of intelligent alien who visited the Earth long ago. We later get details of the visit from the viewpoint of the aliens.

9000 years ago an alien society in the Alpha Centauri system was under threat of cosmic bombardment. Their only hope to survive was to go out and explore (and eventually colonise) nearby space. On 21st century Earth, astronauts find artifacts left by this civilisation and wonder who they were.

The narrator is an astronaut who is on her way to the Alpha Centauri system. She needs something on her hands during the long trip, and spends her time writing several biographies. Two of the biographies cover humans who were instrumental in the discovery of the alien artifacts, and two of the biographies cover the lives of the aliens who came to the Sol system 9000 years ago.

There was a time when humanity looked in the mirror and saw something precious, worth protecting and fighting for—indeed, worth liberating. But now, we are beset on all sides by propaganda promoting a radically different viewpoint. According to this idea, human beings are a cancer upon the Earth, a horde of vermin whose aspirations and appetites are endangering the natural order. This is the core of antihumanism.

Merchants of Despair traces the pedigree of this ideology and exposes its pernicious consequences in startling and horrifying detail. The book names the chief prophets and promoters of antihumanism over the last two centuries, from Thomas Malthus through Paul Ehrlich and Al Gore. It exposes the worst crimes perpetrated by the antihumanist movement, including eugenics campaigns in the United States and genocidal anti-development and population-control programs around the world.

Combining riveting tales from history with powerful policy arguments, Merchants of Despair provides scientific refutations to all of antihumanism’s major pseudo-scientific claims, including its modern tirades against nuclear power, pesticides, population growth, biotech foods, resource depletion, and industrial development.

Blowing Up Russia contains the allegations of ex-spy Alexander Litvinenko against his former spymasters in Moscow which led to his being murdered in London in November 2006. In the book he and historian Yuri Felshtinsky detail how since 1999 the Russian secret service has been hatching a plot to return to the terror that was the hallmark of the KGB. Vividly written and based on Litvinenko's 20 years of insider knowledge of Russian spy campaigns, Blowing Up Russia describes how the successor of the KGB fabricated terrorist attacks and launched a war. Writing about Litvinenko, the surviving co-author recounts how the banning of the book in Russia led to three earlier deaths.

Book DescriptionUntil now, Hollywood's political history has been dominated by a steady stream of films and memoirs decrying the "nightmare" of the Red Scare and how it victimized political innocents. But in RED STAR OVER HOLLYWOOD, Ronald and Allis Radosh tell for the first time the "backstory" behind this myth. The authors show how the Soviet Comintern decided to make the film capitol a prime target in the late 1920s. They follow the lives of Budd Schulberg, Ring Lardner Jr. Maurice Rapf and other young radicals who went to the USSR in the early 1930s, underwent a political conversion experience there, and came back to Hollywood as apostles preaching a Soviet gospel. They take us inside the cells and discussion groups they and other Party members formed, the guilds and unions they tried to take over, and the studios they tried to influence. The Radoshes not only prove that the members of the Hollywood Party were loyal first and foremost to Joseph Stalin, but show that in fact many of the screenwriters who later became part of the Hollywood Ten succeeded in using films as a propaganda medium in behalf of Soviet cause. One of their most significant successes was the wartime blockbuster Mission To Moscow, whose inside story the authors document in fascinating detail. The Radoshes' are at their best when writing about the blacklist era. They take us inside the Hollywood Communists' strategy sessions as they prepared to testify in front of the House Committee on Un-American Activities and show that while others were lionizing them as blameless victims of American nativism and paranoia, the Hollywood Reds themselves were beset by doubts and disagreements about their disloyalty to America and their treatment by the Communist Party. Creating memorable portraits of Dalton Trumbo, Elia Kazan and John Garfield, the authors also trace the afterlives of those touched by HUAC and the blacklist and show how they continued their argument with America and each other over the next half century. RED STAR OVER HOLLYWOOD is an epic work about one of the most discussed and least understood episodes in our political life. Getting behind the denial and apologetics, the Radoshes tell a story whose long half-life continues. The men and women who agitated for communism a half-century ago created a living legacy used by Jane Fonda and others who revived the Hollywood Left in the 1960s, and by figures such as Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins and Sean Penn in the equally turbulent filmland politics of today.Download DescriptionUsing material from the papers of Dalton Trumbo, Dore Schary, Melvyn Douglas and other Hollywood insiders, Ronald and Allis Radosh trace the growth of the Communist Party from the 1920s, when stars like Charlie Chaplin and Groucho Marx touredthe Soviet Union and came back converted, through the 1930s and the war years, when the Party achieved critical mass in Hollywood. The Radoshes' most controversial discovery is that during the investigations of the House Committee on Un-American Activities, while others were lionizing them as blameless victims of a vicious blacklist, the Hollywood Reds themselves were beset by doubts and disagreements about their disloyalty to America and their treatment by the Communist Party. Red Star over Hollywood opens up the cells and discussion groups that defined Hollywood radicalism.

This original collection of essays offers hope to those who believe that the cause of world peace requires a new American foreign policy and repairing our depleted military. The twelve contributors to this book show why America must take another look at our possible adversaries and real strategic partners. Present Dangers offers practical strategies for policymakers eager to disarm adversaries like North Korea and Iraq and head off the terrorist threat. Intellectuals, historians and policy-makers such as James Ceasar, Ross Munro, Peter Rodman, Richard Perle, Reuel Marc Gerecht, Nicholas Eberstadt, Jeffrey Gedmin, Aaron Friedberg, Elliott Abrams, Frederick Kagan, Willliam Schneider, William Bennett, Paul Wolfowitz, and Donald Kagan all challenge America to make sure that foreign affairs, a sleeping issue for the last eight years, gets a wake-up call in election year 2000.
