Im Herzen Der See from the Author: Nathaniel Philbrick. Die wahre Geschichte hinter dem Klassiker Moby Dick – verfilmt mit Starbesetzung Was jetzt als »Major Motion Picture« in die Kinos kommt – produziert von Oscar-Preisträger Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind – Genie und Wahnsinn) –, hat schon als Buch seine Leser gefesselt. Nathaniel Philbrick erzählt die wahre Geschichte jener Ereignisse, die Herman Melville zu seinem Roman Moby Dick inspiriert haben: Im November 1820 wird der Walfänger Essex mitten auf dem Pazifik von einem Pottwal gerammt. Das Schiff kentert, doch die 20 Mann starke Besatzung kann sich auf drei kleine Beiboote retten. Knapp 4000 Kilometer westlich der südamerikanischen Küste beginnt für die Männer eine beispiellose Odyssee: Drei Monate lang segeln sie in offenen, notdürftig aufgetakelten Booten und ohne ausreichend Proviant über eine feindliche See – und stoßen dabei an die Grenzen ihrer Menschlichkeit.

Narrative Inquiry In Early Childhood And Elementary School from the Author: Stephanie Sisk-Hilton. As top-down educational reform policies at local and national levels increasingly isolate teachers from their own professional and instructional agency, and stultify children’s passion for learning, new techniques are needed for understanding and transforming educational practices. Narrative Inquiry in Early Childhood and Elementary School: Learning to Teach, Teaching Well facilitates meaningful change in early years education by providing early childhood and elementary school teachers with methods to incorporate narrative into their instruction and inquiry. This book offers practical strategies for incorporating narrative tools and structures into the classroom, and encouraging effective conceptual, pedagogical, and personal avenues for engaged teaching and learning across languages and cultures. The book’s chapters promote a lively discussion of central tenets of narrative inquiry and illustrative examples of teachers at work with narrative and inquiry for improving their practice and children’s learning.

Sacred Music Drama from the Author: Carl Gerbrandt. “The indelible imprint of sacred music drama throughout history is undeniable . . . and its resurgence in the twentieth and twentieth-first centuries stirs the curiosity.” Carl Gerbrandt, in pursuing these issues, has brought to our fingertips a stimulating historical perspective on sacred music drama as well as an extensively annotated list of repertoire. Years of research have gone into providing information on centuries of sacred music dramas/operas which for the most part have been known to very few. Included in these pages of his Second Edition are over 330 sacred music dramas/operas, each with scholarly and practical information that will be of interest and great value to the opera director, the performer, the scholar, the conductor and the church musician. Gerbrandt's SETTING THE STAGE section is an enlightening overview of sacred music history. The repertoire selected includes works from the Middle Ages to works being written today. Each work is reviewed with regard to the source of libretto, the style and difficulty of its musical content, the date and location of the first performance, the number of acts and scenes, and the performance length of the work. Additionally, each role is listed by name and voicing, and in most cases, the vocal range is indicated. The choral demands, orchestrations and dance requirements are identified. A thorough plot synopsis as well as the location of scores and parts is given. Ten appendices cross-reference textual sources and topical content while assisting in the selection of works for worship services or theatrical performances. Select contact information of publishers and composers in also included. Sacred Music Drama: The Producer’s Guide fills a long standing void by acquainting directors, students, performers and interested readers with the numerous sacred music dramas which are available.

Shelter From The Storm from the Author: June Cameron. Buying Saffron, a 24-foot racing sailboat, was an act of desperation meant to help single parent June Cameron and her youngest son validate themselves. It did that and more. A friend persuaded June to race the boat, and over the next decade June, either solo or with her all-female crew, competed in BC's major sailing races, taking home a lot of the hardware for their class. Shelter from the Storm is a fascinating memoir about finding one's place, even if that place is at sea.
