Teaching ALL of the Children
Author: Barbara Barber
View: 867125 stories of children from a teaching career spanning 40 years illustrate with humor and pathos the power of teaching with positive energy. Each child, and his individual circumstance, will help future and current teachers realize that an attitude of “failure is not an option” will create success for ALL children. It is easy to learn how to teach children to read, perform math problems, and write, but there are times when a student comes into a teacher’s classroom unready, unwilling, and unable to learn. These stories demonstrate how a teacher’s creativity and commitment to student success can turn the child into one who is ready, willing, and able to learn. Each chapter ends with a short list of suggestions for teachers of general and special education students.

Black Leadership and the Transformation of 1960s Mississippi
Author: Sue [Lorenzi] Sojourner
Publisher: University Press of Kentucky
View: 6005The world's eyes were on Mississippi during the summer of 1964, when civil rights activists launched an ambitious African American voter registration project and were met with violent resistance from white supremacists. Sue Sojourner and her husband arrived in Holmes County, Mississippi, in the wake of this historic time, known as "Freedom Summer." From September 1964 until her departure from the state in 1969, Sojourner collected an incredible number of documents, oral histories, and photographs chronicling the dramatic events that she witnessed. In this remarkable book, written in collaboration with Cheryl Reitan, Sojourner presents a fascinating account of one of the civil rights movement's most active and broad-based community organizing operations in the South. Thunder of Freedom unites Sojourner's personal experiences with her insights regarding the dynamics of race relations in the 1960s South, providing readers with a unique look at the struggle for rights and equality in Mississippi. Illustrated with selections from Sojourner's acclaimed catalog of photographs, this profound book tells the powerful, often intimate stories of ordinary people who accomplished extraordinary things.
