    Alfred Kazin's America: Critical and Personal Writing (USED)

    Alfred Kazin's America: Critical and Personal Writing (USED)

    $6.99
    More Info

    Over the course of sixty years, Alfred Kazin's writings confronted virtually all of our major imaginative writers, from Emerson to Emily Dickinson to James Wright and Joyce Carol Oates -- including such unexpected figures as Lincoln, William James, and Thorstein Veblen. This son of Russian Jews wrote out of the tensions of the outsider and the astute, outspoken leftist -- or, as he put it, the bitter patriotism of loving what one knows. Editor Ted Solotaroff hasselected material from Kazin's three classic memoirs to accompany his critical writings. Alfred Kazin's America provides an ongoing example of the spiritual freedom, individualism, and democratic contentiousness that he regarded as his heritage and endeavored to pass on.

    More Info

    Ideal for college students and advanced high school students, the American Heritage High School Dictionary is a brand-new paperbound reference book from the editors of the American Heritage Dictionaries. It is aimed at users who need a dictionary that is more advanced than the Student Dictionary but more conveniently sized and priced than the 2084-page hardcover American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, Fifth Edition. The American Heritage High School Dictionary will be especially useful for customers who do not have ready access to our electronic products. Each entry is clearly defined, and thousands of example sentences show how entry words are used in context. There are no biographical or geographical entries, thus allowing more room for basic vocabulary. A gazetteer at the back of the book lists countries, states, and capitals. Hundreds of word history notes describe the development of words in clear, straightforward language. A style guide, detailed definitions of grammatical terms, and dozens of usage notes provide guidance on grammar and style points. This reference book is designed to be a workhorse for writers - great for high school students who are studying for standardized tests or who are allowed to use print dictionaries during tests, for college students whose schools lack the resources to provide online content, and for individuals who prefer a conveniently sized print dictionary for their home or office.

    Assessment and Student Success in a Differentiated Classroom (USED)

    Assessment and Student Success in a Differentiated Classroom (USED)

    $9.99
    More Info

    Carol Ann Tomlinson and Tonya R. Moon take an in-depth look at assessment and show how differentiation can improve the process in all grade levels and subject areas. After discussing differentiation in general, the authors focus on how differentiation applies to various forms of assessment--pre-assessment, formative assessment, and summative assessment--and to grading and report cards. Readers learn how differentiation can

    * Capture student interest and increase motivation
    * Clarify teachers' understanding about what is most important to teach
    * Enhance students' and teachers' belief in student learning capacity; and
    * Help teachers understand their students' individual similarities and differences so they can reach more students, more effectively

    Throughout, Tomlinson and Moon emphasize the importance of maintaining a consistent focus on the essential knowledge, understandings, and skills that all students must acquire, no matter what their starting point.

    Detailed scenarios illustrate how assessment differentiation can occur in three realms (student readiness, interest, and learning style or preference) and how it can improve assessment validity and reliability and decrease errors and teacher bias.

    Grounded in research and the authors' teaching experience, Assessment and Student Success in a Differentiated Classroom outlines a common-sense approach that is both thoughtful and practical, and that empowers teachers and students to discover, strive for, and achieve their true potential.
