Unlocking the Writing Process

release date: Oct 28, 2021
Unlocking the Writing Process
As a retired SPED Teacher, I have developed lessons that use visual arts and written work that encourages students who don''t like to write to actually attempt writing. I also use anecdotal stories from my 30 years of teaching to inspire and help all teachers in the classroom now to move forward in their ability to reach their students. Lessons start with basic instruction and move to more difficult applications. Journal writing every day is the foundation for all writing.

Pearls of Wisdom

release date: Mar 03, 2020
Pearls of Wisdom
AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! In this "sage, valuable volume" (Publishers Weekly), First Lady Barbara Bush shares the best of her adviceto family, staff, and close friends. First Lady Barbara Bush was famous for handing out advice. From friends and family to heads of state and Supreme Court justices, and certainly to her staff, her advice ranged from what to wear, what to say or not say, and how to live your life. She especially loved visiting with students of all ages, from kindergartners to college graduates. When she turned 80, she owned up to all her advice-giving and explained it this way: After all, in 80 years of living, I have survived 6 children, 17 grandchildren, 6 wars, a book by Kitty Kelly, two presidents, two governors, big Election Day wins and big Election Day losses, and 61 years of marriage to a husband who keeps jumping out of perfectly good airplanes. So, it''s just possible that along the way I''ve learned a thing or two. At the end of the day, she taught all of us some valuable lessons. As First Lady, she made a point of cuddling a baby with AIDS and hugging a young man who was HIV positive and whose family had rejected him, showing us by example the importance of compassion and the myth of fear. As a mother, she made sure we all knew that your children must come first, and one of the most important things you can do is to read to them. As a friend and mentor, she showed that you had to be true to yourself, and even at the end of her life, she taught us how to die with grace. Full of Barbara Bush''s trademark wit and thoughtfulness, Pearls of Wisdom is a poignant reflection on life, love, family, and the world by one of America''s most iconic -- and beloved -- public figures.

Your Own True Colors

Your Own True Colors
An inspiring and beautiful way to commemorate Barbara Bush—the complete text of her historic speech to the 1990 graduating class of Wellesley College, which NPR included in their list of the “Best Commencement Speeches, Ever.” Barbara Bush is one of America’s most beloved first ladies, and one of only two in our history to be both the wife and the mother of a President. Celebrated for her wit, compassion, candor, and ebullience, she was embraced on both sides of the political aisle. In the outpouring of national admiration and affection in the days following her death in the spring of 2018 at age ninety-two, many remembered the commencement address Mrs. Bush gave to the Wellesley College class of 1990. She urged the graduates to believe in something larger than themselves, citing her own commitment to literacy and her belief that, “if more people could read, write, and comprehend, we would be much closer to solving many of the problems plaguing our society.” Filled with timeless wisdom, Your Own True Colors is a perfect gift book for graduation or any occasion. Barbara Bush’s message about men, women, diversity, and big ideals—finding one’s own true colors—is as timely, important, and inspiring as ever.

Heart Trouble
Many of us have heart disease not caused by cholesterol or cardiovascular problems, and we are not receiving any warnings at all. We are in spiritual rather than physical jeopardy. This Woman''s Workshop asks: What kind of heart does God want His children to have? To find answers author Barbara Bush examines biblical passages about the heart, probing into our hearts to diagnose: - What our habits reveal about us - If our actions speak of Christ in our lives - If our words expose heart disease such as envy or self-centeredness - What the hidden intents of our hearts are. Heart Trouble has an introduction to Scripture verses and themes, questions labeled Digging Deeper at the end of each chapter with space for answers, and suggestions for group use. Addressing contemporary and biblical issues, the Woman''s Workshop series and the Workshop series for men and women are ideal for group or individual Bible study.
