Reading Power Revised Expanded Edition from the Author: Adrienne Gear. Ten years ago, Reading Power was launched in an elementary school in Vancouver. It has since evolved into a recognized approach to comprehension instruction being implemented across Canada, in the United States, United Kingdom, Sweden, and China. This ground-breaking approach showed teachers how to help students think while they read — connect, question, visualize, infer, and transform. Since the publication of the first edition of Reading Power, Adrienne Gear has continued to reflect on and refine her ideas about metacognition, comprehension instruction, and the Reading Power strategies. This revised and expanded edition shares these new understandings, and offers teachers new ideas, new lessons, and, of course, new anchor books to support the Reading Power principles. An ideal resource for teachers familiar to this strategic approach to teaching reading, or for those looking for new ways to connect thinking with reading.

The Enchanted Screen from the Author: Jack Zipes. The Enchanted Screen: The Unknown History of Fairy-Tale Films offers readers a long overdue, comprehensive look at the rich history of fairy tales and their influence on film, complete with the inclusion of an extensive filmography compiled by the author. With this book, Jack Zipes not only looks at the extensive, illustrious life of fairy tales and cinema, but he also reminds us that, decades before Walt Disney made his mark on the genre, fairy tales were central to the birth of cinema as a medium, as they offered cheap, copyright-free material that could easily engage audiences not only though their familiarity but also through their dazzling special effects. Since the story of fairy tales on film stretches far beyond Disney, this book, therefore, discusses a broad range of films silent, English and non-English, animation, live-action, puppetry, woodcut, montage (Jim Henson), cartoon, and digital. Zipes, thus, gives his readers an in depth look into the special relationship between fairy tales and cinema, and guides us through this vast array of films by tracing the adaptations of major fairy tales like "Little Red Riding Hood," "Cinderella," "Snow White," "Peter Pan," and many more, from their earliest cinematic appearances to today. Full of insight into some of our most beloved films and stories, and boldly illustrated with numerous film stills, The Enchanted Screen, is essential reading for film buffs and fans of the fairy tale alike.

May Bird Warrior Princess from the Author: Jodi Lynn Anderson. At Hog Wallow Middle School, May Ellen Bird was always slightly invisible. Then she went on a long trip to the land of the dead, where ghost towns glowed blue in the dark dusk and spooky specters dwelled in cities on the Dead Sea. Back on Earth at last, May and her hairless cat, Somber Kitty, are now famous, their faces plastered across souvenirs and sportswear that read "May Bird Went to the Land of the Dead and All She Brought Me Was This Lousy T-Shirt." But, finally in the spotlight, May feels more than ever that she doesn't belong. Every night she sits by her bedroom window, gazing at the sky and dreaming of another place, wishing -- despite herself -- to be back among the ghosts. And then one night she gets her heart's desire in a way she would never have wished for. Only the Ever After isn't anything like the world May left behind three years ago. The spirits have vanished, and the towns -- once full of every manner of things that go bump in the night -- are deserted. Evil Bo Cleevil has made the Ever After as cold as his own frigid soul, and put up a bunch of tacky malls to boot. Now, with her friends missing and enemies all around her, May must find her way to the edge of the universe, where night swallows the stars, where allies are few and often have bad breath, where endings can also be beginnings, and where the truest hero lurks in the unlikeliest of souls. But Bo Cleevil's got one last trick up his sleeve -- one that no one on Earth is ready for. With the worlds of the living and the dead in the balance, will May's courage fail her one last time? Or will she finally become the warrior she was always meant to be?

The Great Cat Massacre from the Author: Robert Darnton. When the apprentices of a Paris printing shop in the 1730s held a series of mock trials and then hanged all the cats they could lay their hands on, why did they find it so hilariously funny that they choked with laughter when they reenacted it in pantomime some twenty times? Why in the eighteenth-century version of Little Red Riding Hood did the wolf eat the child at the end? What did the anonymous townsman of Montpelier have in mind when he kept an exhaustive dossier on all the activities of his native city? These are some of the provocative questions Robert Darnton answers in this classic work of European history in what we like to call “The Age of Enlightenment.”

The Androcles Scrolls from the Author: Warren Michael. Androcles and the Lion, the story made most famous by Sir George Bernard Shaw, has remained untainted for centuries. Now, for the first time, a glimmer of disagreement has appeared. Off the coast of Samnos, a Greek island in the eastern Aegean Sea, south of Chios, north of Patmos and the Dodecanese, diving expeditions have produced evidence of an alternative explanation to the Androcles Legend. An explorer ship, uncovering ancient wrecks off the island coast for gold, silver, rare artifacts, using a well-trafficked route, commonly used for ages uncovered sealed amphora. As opposed to commodities for sale or trade, they contained contaminated, intact scrolls. Carefully protected and restored, they slowly disintegrated, but not before yielding much of their information. Strangely enough, it concerned the man Androcles. The amphora, apparently thrown off the ship en route, was recovered some three miles away from the ship itself before overtaken. They were purposely disposed of while being pursued. But why? What is the mystery that caused men to conceal, then dispose of documents so seemingly harmless? Re-assembled after twenty-seven years of painstaking effort; authenticated, well preserved, restored, unchanged, and uneditednow made public for the first time. Written by a slave who apparently witnessed everything, he was careful to conceal all the information until his death. Is there some hidden state secret? A codesome event so dangerous it had to be dispelled, eliminated any way possible, even to the point of fable? You must decide. It is presented, flaws and all, for your enjoyment.
