African-American writer Richard Wright (1908-1960) was celebrated during the early 1940s for his searing autobiography (Black Boy) and fiction (Native Son). By 1947 he felt so unwelcome in his homeland that he exiled himself and his family in Paris. But his writings changed American culture forever, and today they are mainstays of literature and composition classes. He and his works are also the subjects of numerous critical essays and commentaries by contemporary writers. This volume presents a comprehensive annotated bibliography of those essays, books, and articles from 1983 through 2003. Arranged alphabetically by author within years are some 8,320 entries ranging from unpublished dissertations to book-length studies of African American literature and literary criticism. Also included as an appendix are addenda to the author's earlier bibliography covering the years from 1934 through 1982. This is the exhaustive reference for serious students of Richard Wright and his critics.

Demonstrating the power of teaching global literature from a critical literacy perspective, this book explores the ways that K-6 educators can infuse diverse texts into their classrooms and find support for their endeavours in teacher inquiry communities. Through carefully analyzed, ethnographically informed portraits of classroom life alternating with teachers’ own accounts of their teaching and learning experiences, it demonstrates how students are moved to question, debate, and take action in response to global texts. This multi-vocal work both emerges from and responds to tensions and debates related to the purpose and practice of literature education in a time of Common Core State Standards.

Μια τετραμελής ομάδα –μια ψυχολόγος, μια βιολόγος, μια ανθρωπολόγος και μια χωρομέτρης– στέλνεται να εξερευνήσει την αποκλεισμένη, μυστηριώδη Περιοχή Χ (είναι η δωδέκατη αποστολή που αναλαμβάνει τούτη την εξερεύνηση). Εκεί, μες στην παρθένα ερημιά, όπου δεν απομένουν παρά μόνο τα χαλάσματα ενός εγκαταλειμμένου χωριού, τα τέσσερα μέλη βρίσκουν έναν μυστηριώδη πύργο βυθισμένο στη γη, που στους τοίχους του ξετυλίγεται μια παράξενη γραφή φτιαγμένη από μύκητες, και στην άλλη άκρη της Περιοχής Χ ένα φάρο με ίχνη, μέσα, ενός τρομερού μακελειού. Πατώντας στέρεα στη λογοτεχνία του Χ. Φ. Λάβκραφτ και του Τζ. Γκ. Μπάλαρντ, μα και στο Σολάρις, ίσως, του Στάνισλαβ Λεμ, και στην αίσθηση που δίνει μια ταινία όπως το Στάλκερ του Αντρέι Ταρκόφσκι, ο Τζεφ Βάντερμιερ στον Αφανισμό (βραβευμένο με το Βραβείο Nebula το 2014), το πρώτο μυθιστόρημα της Τριλογίας της Νότιας Ζώνης, πλάθει μια εφιαλτική και συνάμα μαγευτική μα εντελώς μοναδική ιστορία επιστημονικής φαντασίας, ένα από εκείνα τα σπάνια βιβλία που εντέλει, και παρά τις όποιες ομοιότητες και αναφορές, στέκουν μόνα τους, δίχως στην πραγματικότητα να έχουν όμοιό τους.

This Volume, is the first of 2 volumes that are being released together, but under separate covers. Volume 1, contains the instructional guide to teach special education students and English language learners to be successful writers, in 7 easy steps. In view of the increasing educational dropout rate of these special populations, this unique, simple program offers encouragement, hope, and success to students who are struggling in developing their writing skills. Not only is this program easy to learn and remember, but students are able to increase their writing skills in shorter periods of time. This Volume contains five, no-frills, bare-bones lesson plans along with teacher comments. It also includes reproducible Master Guide Sheets, and student Self-evaluation forms. The simplified color coding system is used as a consistent, predictable routine in each writing activity. This program, like no other, promotes student self-confidence and renewed interest in learning. The words, "I can't write" turn into "Yes, I can!" However, the best kept secret is that these 7 easy steps will help all students. Listen to what the kids are saying: "I had a lot of fun with Steps 1 to 7. They really helped me with my work," (comments from an 8th grade student). "The first thing I learned was Steps 1-7. I learned how to write better paragraphs," (comments from an 8th grade student). "I learned how to web my ideas using complete sentences," (comments from an 8th grade student). "I did really well on my writing assessment because I used the 7 steps," (comments from a 9th grade student) "I couldn't write a complete sentence. With these steps, I can write complete paragraphs and essays for Language Arts and Geography. I did well in my writing test, too," (comments from a 9th grade student). Listen to what teachers are saying: "I have been in meetings where parents have commented how effective her writing program has been with helping their kids. I've often heard parents express their gratitude for their child's success due to Ms. Posey's teaching," (comments from a junior high teacher). "After the 9th graders took the writing assessment, several of the students commented on how good they felt about their writing abilities that were a direct result of the efforts of Ms. Posey," (comments from a junior high teacher). "Her strategies and writing techniques resulted in 50% improvement, an impressive increase, in the scores of resource students for the 9th grade direct writing assessment. This is the highest achievement I've seen in my 30 years of teaching," (comments from a secondary special education teacher).
