Hope: A Memoir of Survival in Cleveland
The #1 New York Times Bestseller

A bestselling book that is inspiring the nation: “We have written here about terrible things that we never wanted to think about again . . . Now we want the world to know: we survived, we are free, we love life.”

Two women kidnapped by infamous Cleveland school-bus driver Ariel Castro share the stories of their abductions, captivity, and dramatic escape

 
On May 6, 2013, Amanda Berry made headlines around the world when she fled a Cleveland home and called 911, saying: “Help me, I’m Amanda Berry. . . . I’ve been kidnapped, and I’ve been missing for ten years.”
 
A horrifying story rapidly unfolded. Ariel Castro, a local school bus driver, had separately lured Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight to his home, where he kept them chained. In the decade that followed, the three were raped, psychologically abused, and threatened with death. Berry had a daughter—Jocelyn—by their captor.
 
Drawing upon their recollections and the diary kept by Amanda Berry, Berry and Gina DeJesus describe a tale of unimaginable torment, and Pulitzer Prize–winning Washington Post reporters Mary Jordan and Kevin Sullivan interweave the events within Castro’s house with original reporting on efforts to find the missing girls. The full story behind the headlines—including details never previously released on Castro’s life and motivations—Hope is a harrowing yet inspiring chronicle of two women whose courage, ingenuity, and resourcefulness ultimately delivered them back to their lives and families.

Understanding and Developing Science Teachers' Pedagogical Content Knowledge: 2nd Edition
There has been a growing interest in the notion of a scholarship of teaching. Such scholarship is displayed through a teacher's grasp of, and response to, the relationships between knowledge of content, teaching and learning in ways that attest to practice as being complex and interwoven. Yet attempting to capture teachers' professional knowledge is difficult because the critical links between practice and knowledge, for many teachers, is tacit. Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) offers one way of capturing, articulating and portraying an aspect of the scholarship of teaching and, in this case, the scholarship of science teaching. The research underpinning the approach developed by Loughran, Berry and Mulhall offers access to the development of the professional knowledge of science teaching in a form that offers new ways of sharing and disseminating this knowledge. Through this Resource Folio approach (comprising CoRe and PaP-eRs) a recognition of the value of the specialist knowledge and skills of science teaching is not only highlighted, but also enhanced. The CoRe and PaP-eRs methodology offers an exciting new way of capturing and portraying science teachers' pedagogical content knowledge so that it might be better understood and valued within the profession. This book is a concrete example of the nature of scholarship in science teaching that is meaningful, useful and immediately applicable in the work of all science teachers (preservice, in-service and science teacher educators). It is an excellent resource for science teachers as well as a guiding text for teacher education. Understanding teachers' professional knowledge is critical to our efforts to promote quality classroom practice. While PCK offers such a lens, the construct is abstract. In this book, the authors have found an interesting and engaging way of making science teachers' PCK concrete, useable, and meaningful for researchers and teachers alike. It offers a new and exciting way of understanding the importance of PCK in shaping and improving science teaching and learning. Professor Julie Gess-Newsome Dean of the Graduate School of Education Williamette University This book contributes to establishing CoRes and PaP-eRs as immensely valuable tools to illuminate and describe PCK. The text provides concrete examples of CoRes and PaP-eRs completed in "real-life" teaching situations that make stimulating reading. The authors show practitioners and researchers alike how this approach can develop high quality science teaching.

Re-examining Pedagogical Content Knowledge in Science Education (Teaching and Learning in Science Series)

Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) has been adapted, adopted, and taken up in a diversity of ways in science education since the concept was introduced in the mid-1980s. Now that it is so well embedded within the language of teaching and learning, research and knowledge about the construct needs to be more useable and applicable to the work of science teachers, especially so in these times when standards and other measures are being used to define their knowledge, skills, and abilities.

Re-examining Pedagogical Content Knowledge in Science Education is organized around three themes: Re-examining PCK: Issues, ideas and development; Research developments and trajectories; Emerging themes in PCK research. Featuring the most up-to-date work from leading PCK scholars in science education across the globe, this volume maps where PCK has been, where it is going, and how it now informs and enhances knowledge of science teachers’ professional knowledge. It illustrates how the PCK research agenda has developed and can make a difference to teachers’ practice and students’ learning of science.

    Dandelion - Taraxacum officinale (Natural Herbal Living Magazine) (Volume 8)
    Dandelion is a wonderful “weed” that has a bad rap today. Not only is dandelion a delicious food and medicine, it is a plant that rebuilds and nourishes the soil and helps fix the damage that humans have caused over thousands of years. Dandelions are the best thing that could happen to a lawn to bring back vitality and health, but instead they are often shunned. They work similarly in the body nourishing it and infusing it with vital nutrients. Dandelion is a beautiful, often overlooked, medicinal "weed" with many health benefits. This magazine issue helps pin point just that, the health aspects of Taxicarum officinale. In it you will find these articles: Dandelion Herbal Monograph Dandelion Flower Essence Profile Dandelion – History and Mythology Dandelion Salve Dandelion Bitters Dandelion Coffee Dandelion Greens Two Ways The Joy of Dandelion Fritters Dandelion and Friends in Salads Havin’ A Dandy Day!

    Amanda Smith
    Amanda Berry Smith (January 23, 1837 - February 24, 1915) was a former slave who became an inspiration to thousands of women both black and white. She was equally at home in the slums of a large city, or the stately homes of the nobility. Redeemed, first from slavery and then from the bondage of sin, she traveled all over the world, testifying to rich and poor alike about the necessity and the power of a sanctified life. Amanda's autobiography is quaint and truthful. She painstakingly relates details of her life as a humble washerwoman cum evangelist, thus opening a window into her world which is of value and interest to Christians and non Christians alike. Living when she did, Amanda faced many obstacles in her faith journey. An African American woman preacher was bound to be anathema to many, even within the church, but this intrepid evangelist was consumed by the message of Christ's full and free salvation and was not going to allow prejudice of any nature to deter her. Amanda often abashed and silenced her enemies through a winning combination of truth, love, and utter devotion to the Master she served.
