An estimated 13 million students in the United States have dyslexia, a neurologic disorder that impairs reading. Reading quickly and accurately is often the key to success in school. Without it, many dyslexics struggle and fail. Some, however, go on to achieve wild success. How? In this true story, dyslexic high school student Aidan Colvin decides to ask them. Over the course of one year, he writes 100 letters to successful dyslexics. He doesn't expect anyone to write back, and is genuinely surprised when people do. This book features letters from Writer John Irving, Arctic Explorer Ann Bancroft, Surgeon and CEO Delos Cosgrove, Sculptor Thomas Sayre, Poet Phillip Schultz and others. It also features conversations with Comedian Jay Leno and Filmmaker Harvey Hubbel. This is a story about growing up, fostering grit and humor in the face of challenges, and seeing one's differences in a new light. It is also a story about the importance of heroes -- for kids like Aidan, but also for anyone. Throughout the book, Aidan shares tips that have helped him succeed in the classroom. Aidan was awarded the 2016 Remy Johnston Merit Award by the International Dyslexia Association. Since then, he has spoken to over 2500 students, teachers and parents across the country about the lessons he learned over the course of this project. This second edition provides a layout and Dutch font optimized for struggling readers. While the page count increased from 107 pages to 152 in this edition, the actual content did not.

Teaching history without reference to genuine historical sources from the relevant period is unimaginable, as engaging with real historical material can inspire and captivate pupils' interest. By introducing them to a source-based approach, their learning can be transformed and their historical skills developed. 100 Ideas for Primary Teachers: History is brimming with imaginative ideas to teach history in the primary classroom. With each idea based on an original historical source from The National Archives, this book takes a skills-based approach that will not only help pupils understand the methods of historical enquiry, which is a key aim of the National Curriculum, but also make history real, captivating and exciting. Themed to cover different source types, including photographs, government reports, cartoons, royal seals, manuscripts, and private and official letters, this book is ideal for building a picture of the past. The historical sources can be previewed in the book and downloaded from a companion website, allowing them to be integrated into teaching tools.

Eileen Apperson has always felt a visceral reaction to landscapes. The one she lives in has been compromised and altered, making her relationship to this place all the more complicated. The San Joaquin Valley has gone through series of transitions to become the worlds greatest agricultural region. To reach such status, the land has gone through sweeping alterations over the past 150 years. This has been due to a series of events brought about by missionaries, trappers, cattlemen famers, and finally a growing urban population. Pattern of the Land explores each of these stages in the valley's history by describing the uniqueness of its terrain. What brings this recorder upon the land closer is that the most significant of these changes have come at the hands of her family, the first settlers in a frontier. Pattern of the Land weaves family stories with historic accounts, focusing primarily on the region where the Kings River descends the Sierra to the area that was Tulare Lake. These sketches guide her search fit home in an altered landscape. Family has been one constant in the place she has grown to appreciate and is now proud to call home.

This book describes the horrors of our family which started during World War II in Germany, and continued for years thereafter because our father abandoned us. After twenty court processes, involving two dozen lawyers and judges, our family lost everything. My little brother, Siggi, and I suffered severe illnesses, starvation and homelessness. When we were about five and seven, our mother forced us to scavenge pig's innards from a manure pile. With the ever-present wire whip that she usually kept pinned to her skirt, she enticed us to eat them. A judge evicted us from our home. On Christmas Eve Day. For one year we squatted in a stranger's attic without water, sewer, heat, power or hope. When we were fourteen and sixteen, our relatives invited us to America. We now thought that our lives would improve: Cowboys and Indians! But when we later arrived on their dairy farms, they enslaved us. I was not allowed to bathe but once a year. At the age of twenty-one, I still lived without water, heat, power, or outhouse. After we finally escaped, Siggi and I worked our way through college, became American citizens and world travelers.
