Teaching YA Lit Through Differentiated Instruction
Each chapter opens with an introduction to and description of a different popular genre or award category of YA lit---science fiction, realistic teen fiction, graphic novels, Pura Belpre award winners, nonfiction texts, poetry, historical YA fiction---and then offers suggestions within that genre for whole-class instruction juxtaposed with a young adult novel more suited for independent reading or small-group activities. Groenke and Scherff present a variety of activities for differentiated instruction for the novel they've chosen for whole-class study, and provide an appendix of titles, by genre, that interest adolescent readers. This book helps English teachers address the different reading needs and strengths adolescents bring to our classrooms. Highlighting some of the best young adult literature published since 2000, this book shows that YA lit is for all students and deserves a more central place in secondary literature instruction.

Extrait: ... nous avons meme peine a croire a tant de barbarie: mais beaucoup d'entre vous ne trouveront que trop croyables et trop fideles plus d'une partie de cet effrayant tableau. Et cependant, ne l'oubliez jamais, ce n'est pas pour vous irriter contre les hommes que je vous retrace ces affligeantes verites, mais uniquement pour vous indiquer le remede, pour vous montrer ses heureux effets, et pour vous donner l'esperance de voir la guerison de la maladie chez vous. La Monnaie, inventee pour etre utile, augmentait encore le mal en donnant a l'Aristocrate, qui n'aurait pu amasser et conserver en nature les produits de la terre, la facilite de les convertir en argent, d'entasser son or et d'augmenter continuellement sa fortune. La Monnaie representant ainsi toutes choses, chacun n'aspirait qu'a acquerir de l'or et de Vargent, de la richesse et de la fortune: c'etait le souverain bien, la principale affaire, et tous les moyens paraissaient bons pour s'enrichir. Nous allons voir, en effet, que la Monnaie, l ' Inegalite de fortune et la Propriete etaient la Cause de tous les vices, de tous les crimes et de tous les malheurs pour les Riches aussi bien que pour les Pauvres. Posseder et retenir du superflu quand des milliers et des millions manquaient du necessaire etait manifestement un acte d'nuus TICE. Car nest-il pas certain que la Nature a donne a tous les hommes, au moment de leur naissance, a tous les enfants au berceau, le meme droit a l'existence et au bonheur?

Translating for Children
Translating for Children is not a book on translations of children's literature, but a book on translating for children. It concentrates on human action in translation and focuses on the translator, the translation process, and translating for children, in particular. Translators bring to the translation their cultural heritage, their reading experience, and in the case of children's books, their image of childhood and their own child image. In so doing, they enter into a dialogic relationship that ultimately involves readers, the author, the illustrator, the translator, and the publisher. What makes Translating for Children unique is the special attention it pays to issues like the illustrations of stories, the performance (like reading aloud) of the books in translation, and the problem of adaptation. It demonstrates how translation and its context takes precedence can take over efforts to discover and reproduce the original author's intentions. Rather than the authority of the author, the book concentrates on the intentions of the readers of a book in translation, both the translator and the target-language readers.
Mad Bad And Sad
Mad, bad and sad. From the depression suffered by Virginia Woolf and Sylvia Plath to the mental anguish and addictions of iconic beauties Zelda Fitzgerald and Marilyn Monroe. From Freud and Jung and the radical breakthroughs of psychoanalysis to Lacan's construction of a modern movement and the new women-centred therapies. This is the story of how we have understood mental disorders and extreme states of mind in women over the last two hundred years and how we conceive of them today, when more and more of our inner life and emotions have become a matter for medics and therapists.
The Picture of Dorian Gray
Celebrated novel involves a handsome young Londoner who sinks into a life of depravity. His body retains perfect youth and vigor while his recent portrait reflects the ravages of his crime and sensuality.
Woman and the New Race
Are overburdened mothers justified in their appeals for contraceptives or abortions?... Will anyone... dare to say to these women that they should go on bringing helpless children in to the world to share their misery?... To say to these women that they should continue their helpless breeding of the helpless is stupid brutality. -from "Avoiding Childbirth" An iconic figure in the fight for reproductive rights for women in America, Margaret Sanger was a powerful voice in the early years of the 20th century. This 1920 book is Sanger's cry for the legalization of birth control and the education of women about their own bodies. With a fiery passion, she discusses: .women's struggle for freedom .the wickedness of creating large families .contraceptives or abortion? .legislating woman's morals .and more. An important record of the beginnings of the feminism in the modern era, Sanger's words remain vital and necessary at a time when women's control over their bodies continues to be challenged. American activist MARGARET HIGGINS SANGER (1879-1966) was an early advocate of birth control; she served as president of the International Planned Parenthood Federation from 1952 to 1959. She also wrote Happiness in Marriage (1926) and her autobiography (1938).
The Idea of Europe An Essay
In this remarkable short book, the foremost intellectual of our age brings a lifetime of erudition to bear on a subject that he has grappled with for decades, and whose future is profoundly uncertain. The Idea of Europe finds George Steiner reckoning with Europe from a number of different angles. “Europe,” he writes, “is the place where Goethe’s garden almost borders on Buchenwald, where the house of Corneille abuts on the market-place in which Joan of Arc was hideously done to death.” It is, in other words, a continent rich with contradiction, whose many tensions—cultural, social, political, economic, and religious—have for centuries conspired to pull it apart, even as it has become more and more unified. But what lies ahead for a continent whose borders are growing and economic might is strengthening, even as its cultural identity recedes? A continent where, in Steiner’s words, “young Englishmen choose to rank David Beckham high above Shakespeare and Darwin in their list of national treasures”? This is the trajectory that Steiner explores so brilliantly in The Idea of Europe.
A new English translation of Wilhelm Busch's German-language children's classic Max & Moritz, celebrating the 150th anniversary of the original version. A mock-cautionary tale told in rhyming couplets, Max & Moritz combines witty and darkly humorous language with Busch's fabulously rich illustrations to describe the wicked "pranks" of two mischievous boys as they wreak havoc on their peaceful village - before coming to a sticky end themselves... This new translation is presented as a "parallel" text alongside the German original so that readers can choose which version they wish to read - or compare and contrast the two.
