What Have You Done

Family is not what it seems in this raw, edgy thriller that New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline says “you won’t be able to put down.”

When a mutilated body is found hanging in a seedy motel in Philadelphia, forensics specialist Liam Dwyer assumes the crime scene will be business as usual. Instead, the victim turns out to be a woman he’d had an affair with before breaking it off to save his marriage. But there’s a bigger problem: Liam has no memory of where he was or what he did on the night of the murder.

Panicked, Liam turns to his brother, Sean, a homicide detective. Sean has his back, but incriminating evidence keeps piling up. From fingerprints to DNA, everything points to Liam, who must race against time and his department to uncover the truth—even if that truth is his own guilt. Yet as he digs deeper, dark secrets come to light, and Liam begins to suspect the killer might actually be Sean…

When the smoke clears in this harrowing family drama, who will be left standing?

Ready to Read: A Multisensory Approach to Language-Based Comprehension Instruction
Comprehension is the ultimate goal of reading: it makes learning possible and determines students' long-term success across all academic subjects. But for many children with reading disability, comprehension doesn't happen easily—they need explicit instruction to master this skill. That's why general and special education teachers need this book. A concise, highly accessible text, it's the first to provide guidelines for basing comprehension instruction on students' language ability and to use the popular multisensory teaching approach to help educators teach comprehension skills in ways that complement each child's learning styles.

Pre- and inservice general and special educators will discover the keys to teaching the high-level reading skills that come together to form comprehension—vocabulary, morphology, syntax, and listening comprehension. For each of these critical skills, teachers will get a clear explanation of what the skill is, how it develops, and how it contributes to reading success. Then they'll learn how to differentiate instruction based on students' language abilities and use effective multisensory adaptations to help students meet key literacy goals, such as

  • increasing vocabulary
  • understanding prefixes and suffixes
  • comprehending complex sentences
  • monitoring and repairing breakdowns in sentence comprehension
  • sharpening inferential skills during reading
  • retelling a structured story
  • understanding cause and effect relationships
  • and more

To demonstrate how to differentiate instruction for students with reading disability having a range of language abilities, the book follows case histories of three students with different learning challenges and shows teachers how to adapt instruction to meet diverse needs. Educators will also get helpful recommendations for conducting formal and informal assessment of student progress in each skill area.

A straightforward, reader-friendly guide to teaching comprehension, this book prepares teachers for one of their most important tasks—helping all their students make the critical leap from "learning to read" to "reading to learn."

Opening the Mountain: Circumambulating Mount Tamalpais, A Ritual Walk
In 1965, Allen Ginsberg, Gary Snyder and Philip Whalen gathered at the base of Mt. Tamalpais, a lovely small mountain in Marin County that anchors the San Francisco Bay on its northwest side. Inspired by Tibetan and Indian practices of walking clockwise — “the way of the sun” — around a venerated object, they “opened the mountain” by completing the first circumambulation. They did it again two years later, a month after the “Human Be-in” in Golden Gate Park, and with greater company as they invited the public to join them. The practice has continued almost uninterrupted for forty years, with Matthew Davis finding an organizing role on April 8, 1971, the Buddha's birthday, when he first led the walk. He has led the celebrations more than 140 times since.

The ritual walk — slightly less than 15 miles in length — marks the four quarters of the year. Ten way stations have been established for ceremonial chanting and prayer. With 80 remarkable photographs by Michael Farrell Scott, lovely drawings and maps, chants and poems, this book documents not only this particular spiritual practice but offers guidance for others wishing to establish similar practices in their own areas.
