Book Description: In the past, correct spelling, the multiplication tables, the names of the state capitals and the American presidents were basics that all children were taught in school. Today, many children graduate without this essential knowledge. Most curricula today follow a haphazard sampling of topics with a focus on political correctness instead of teaching students how to study. Leigh Bortins, a leading figure in the homeschooling community, is having none of it. She believes that there are core areas of knowledge that are essential to master. Without knowing the multiplication tables, children can't advance to algebra. Without mastery of grammar, students will have difficulty expressing themselves. Without these essential building blocks of knowledge, students may remember information but they will never possess a broad and deep understanding of how the world works. In The Core, Bortins gives parents the tools and methodology to implement a rigorous, thorough, and broad curriculum based on the classical model, including: - Rote memorization to cement knowledge - Systematic learning of geography, historical facts, and timelines - Reading the great books and seminal historical documents instead of adaptations and abridged editions - Rigorous training in math and the natural sciences

Book Description: “With over 3.5 million homeschooled students in the U.S., this book admirably explores the intersection of this growing and important grass roots movement and libraries of all kinds, showing how and why libraries are a vital element in the homeschooling movement.”—Bruce R. Schueneman, Library Director, James C. Jernigan Library, Texas A&M University-Kingsville “A rich and exciting sourcebook for librarians serving those outside of formal schooling.”—Tim Gorichanaz, Drexel University, Philadelphia “This book effectively covers all the bases ensuring positive experiences and outcomes for libraries serving home school families in their service areas.”—Deb Biggs Tenbusch, Librarian and Account Manager, Gale, Cengage Learning, Farmington Hills, Michigan “Whether starting new programs or expanding current ones, these chapters will help you to engage and prepare your resources to help homeschoolers.”—Kathleen Christy, Adult Services Manager, Blount County Public Library, Maryville, Tennessee “21st century homeschoolers are facing new challenges and this book presents fresh solutions and describes opportunities you may not realize existed for your library to serve these important patrons.”—Robert Perret, Contributor, Creativity for Library Career Advancement “I think infinite possibilities best describes this must-read book for public and academic librarians who seek to find ways to engage, support and serve the growing homeschool community.”—Anastasia Varnalis-Weigle, Associate Professor, University of Maine, Augusta “Librarians of all types, as well as library stakeholders, will find Homeschooling and Librariesa great resource to help identify needs and ways to support the growing homeschooling community.”—Michelle McKinney, Reference and Web Services Librarian, University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College, Cincinnati, Ohio “An impressively-researched volume that draws on a variety of perspectives, offering insight into the needs of homeschooled populations, including case studies, needs assessment, and future possibilities for programming, continuing education, and outreach.”—Erin Pappas, Research Librarian for the Humanities, University of Virginia Libraries “This practical book will assist libraries as they develop ways to reach out to home educating families.”—Ruth Elder, Cataloging Librarian, Troy University, Troy, Alabama “This book reopened my mind to the wonders that libraries in all of their aspects and attributes have to offer students including the unique and diverse students who are homeschooled.”—Jim Jipson, University of West Florida, Pensacola, Florida As families are looking for better ways to educate their children, more and more of them are becoming interested and engaged in alternative ways of schooling that are different, separate, or opposite of the traditional classroom. Homeschooling has become ever more creative and varied as families create custom-tailored curricula, assignments, goals, and strategies that are best for each unique child. This presents a multitude of challenges and opportunities for information institutions, including public, academic, school, and special libraries. The need for librarians to help homeschool families become information and media literate is more important than ever. This collection of essays provides a range of approaches and strategies suggested by skilled professionals as well as veteran homeschool parents on how to best serve the diverse needs and learning experiences of homeschooled youth. It includes information on needs assessments for special needs students, gifted students, and African American students; advice on how to provide support for the families of homeschoolers; case studies; and information on new technologies that could benefit libraries and the homeschooler populations that they serve.

Book Description: "Over the last thirty years, conservative evangelicals have been moving to the north-west of the United States in an effort to survive and resist the impact of secular modernity. Their activity coincides with the promotion by prominent survivalist authors of a programme of migration to the "American Redoubt," a region encompassing Idaho, Montana, eastern parts of Washington and Oregon, and Wyoming, as a location within which to endure hostile social change or natural disaster. These migration movements have independent origins, but they overlap in their influences and aspirations, working in tandem and sometimes in mutual dependence to offer a vision of the present in which Christian values must be defended, if necessary, by force, and a vision of the future in which American society will be rebuilt according to biblical law. Drawing on Calvinist theology, the social theory of Christian Reconstruction, and libertarian politics, these believers are projecting significant soft power, with their books being promoted by leading secular publishers and being listed as New York Times bestsellers. The strategy is gaining momentum, making an impact in local political and economic life, while being repackaged for a wider audience in publications by a broader coalition of conservative commentators and in American mass culture. These believers recognise that they have lost the culture war - but another kind of conflict is beginning. This book examines the origins, evolution, and cultural reach of the migration that might tell us most about the future of American evangelicalism"--

Book Description: Протягом багатьох років Керол Двек досліджувала силу людських переконань і їхній вплив на наше життя. Намагаючись з’ясувати, чи є талант запорукою успіху, завдяки чому ми досягаємо бажаного і який рецепт розв’язання будь-яких проблем, вона зробила революційне відкриття. Успішність у навчанні й роботі, бізнесі та спорті, мистецький хист і взагалі кожна сфера людського життя можуть змінюватися залежно від того, що саме ми думаємо про власні можливості й таланти. Наші вміння не є сталими, і лише старанність та наполеглива праця здатні призвести до реальних досягнень.

Book Description: Піклуючись про майбутнє наших дітей, ми вимагаємо від них найвищих оцінок у школі, змушуємо їх вступати до найпрестижніших вишів і показувати найкращі результати з усіх дисциплін. Та чи дає статус відмінника гарантії, що дитина матиме всі потрібні навички, щоб стати гармонійно розвиненою особистістю, активним громадянином і побудувати успішну кар’єру? Усталена система освіти давно застаріла й не відповідає вимогам сьогодення. Більшість занять не мають нічого спільного зі справжнім навчанням. Викривлене оцінювання успішності не мотивує до отримання знань, а в гонитві за дипломом студенти не набувають досвіду та життєво важливих навичок. «Мистецтво навчати» презентує варіант альтернативної освіти, яка розвивала б креативні навички, ініціативність і допомагала би підготувати нові покоління до вимог сучасної економіки.

Book Description: Джейн Остен (1775—1817) і досі по праву вважається «першою леді» англійської літератури. Її «романи звичаїв» підкоряють ось уже третє століття щирістю, тонким психологізмом, істинно англійським гумором і є обов’язковими для вивчення в коледжах і університетах Великої Британії. «Гордість і упередженість» — роман про кохання багатого красеня-аристократа та скромної, але гордої доньки володаря невеликого маєтку в провінції. Вони зображені настільки лукаво і дотепно, що хвилюють не тільки уяву читачів, а ще й кінематографістів — ця книга є одним із найчастіше екранізованих літературних творів за всю історію кіно.
