Fire in the Ashes: Twenty-Five Years Among the Poorest Children in America
Some of them never do recover from the battering they undergo in their early years, but many more battle back with fierce and often jubilant determination to overcome the formidable obstacles they face. In this powerful and culminating work about a group of inner-city children he has known for many years, and to the children he has vividly portrayed, Jonathan Kozol returns to the scene of his previous prize-winning books, to share with us their fascinating journeys and unexpected victories as they grow into adulthood.
For nearly fifty years, jonathan has pricked the conscience of his readers by laying bare the savage inequalities inflicted upon children for no reason but the accident of being born to poverty within a wealthy nation. But never has his intimate acquaintance with his subjects been more apparent, than in Fire in the Ashes, or more stirring, as Jonathan tells the stories of young men and women who have come of age in one of the most destitute communities of the United States.
As we watch these glorious children grow into the fullness of a healthy and contributive maturity, they ignite a flame of hope, not only for themselves but also for our society. Used book in Good Condition.
Rigorous Curriculum Design:: How to Create Curricular Units of Study that Align Standards, Instruction, and Assessment
It is important that they know this is not a rigid, adapting, prescriptive procedure, but rather an opportunity for learning, and improving. As my friend and colleague Robert Kuklis points out, curriculum designers “shape and modify the process as they move through it. Overview of BookThis book is divided into four parts.
Here is a brief overview of each part:part 1, instruction, connects curriculum design to the “big picture” of standards, and data practices, provides the background of this model, Seeing the Big Picture Connections First, previews the step-by-step design sequence, assessments, defines curriculum in terms of rigor, and introduces end-of-chapter reader assignments.
Part 2, explains the five steps that must first be taken to lay the foundation upon which to build the curricular units of study, Building the Foundation for Designing Curricular Units, and provides explicit guidelines for applying each step. Part 3, designing the curricular unit of study—from start to finish, from beginning to end, gives the “nuts and bolts” directions for designing a rigorous curricular unit of study, and concludes with an overview of how to implement the unit in the classroom or instructional program.
My hope is that this road map will not only “show you the way” to design your own curriculum, but also allow you the flexibility of customizing it to fit your own purpose and needs. As with the realization of any lofty vision, and collaboration to create and revise a single curriculum, it will take a great deal of time, thought, energy, let alone multiple curricula.
The best advice i can offer is to regard whatever you produce as a continual “work in progress, two, ” to be accomplished over one, or three years, or even longer. You are creating something truly significant—a comprehensive body of work that is going to serve your educators, students, and parents for years to come! Used book in Good Condition.
