Jackie Kennedy: A Captivating Guide to the Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (Captivating History)

Explore the Fascinating Life of Jackie KennedyFree History BONUS Inside!Without a doubt, the name Jackie Kennedy draws multiple thoughts to mind; she is, perhaps, most well-known in her service as the first lady of the United States, as her husband, John F. Kennedy, took office as the president, and her role in restoring the White House. Then, of course, other people remember Jacqueline for her role in the fashion industry, particularly her pink Chanel suit and matching pillbox hat, which became a symbol of her husband’s assassination. Jackie is so renowned and beloved that she ranks as one of the most popular first ladies. In fact, Jacqueline was named in 1999 on Gallup’s list of Most Admired Men and Women in twentieth-century America. While she made major impacts on the White House, Jackie was much more than her title as first lady.Some of the topics covered in this book include:Childhood and Early EducationCollege and Early CareerThe Relationship with John F.

Adolf Hitler: A Captivating Guide to the Life of the FA 1/4 hrer of Nazi Germany (Captivating History)

Explore the Rise of Adolf HitlerFree History BONUS Inside!Was Hitler, as Ian Kershaw asked, a natural consequence of German history, or an aberration? Not that Hitler had been in hiding, waiting to attack. The Führer had actually been following an aggressive and savage foreign policy for almost ten years, and been named Man of the Year by Time magazine in 1938.This is not a book about World War II, but about the man, Adolf Hitler, one of the faces and names that still arouse the strongest feelings—repulsion, resentment, and even fanaticism—but one who also had a childhood and a youth, a father and a mother. It is the road to madness—beginning that day in August of 1934 when he took over absolute power and ordered allegiance and loyalty to him alone—that this book is about.

The Archaeology of Human Ancestry: Power, Sex and Tradition (Theoretical Archaeology Group (Tag))

Human social life is constrained and defined by our cognitive and emotional dispositions, which are the legacy of our foraging ancestors. But how difficult is it to reconstruct the social systems and cultural traditions of those ancestors? The Archaeology of Human Ancestry provides a stimulating and provocative answer, in which archaeologists and biological anthropologists set out and demonstrate their reconstructive methods. Contributors use observations of primates and modern hunter-gatherers to illuminate the fossil and artefactual records. Thematic treatment covers the evolution of group size; group composition and the emotional structure of social bonds; sexual dimorphism and the sexual division of labour; and the origins of human cultural traditions. The Archaeology of Human Ancestry is an essential introduction to the subject for advanced undergraduates and researchers in archaeology and biological anthropology. It will also be used by workers in psychology, sociology and feminist studies as a resource for understanding human social origins.

Deeper Learning, Dialogic Learning, and Critical Thinking: Research-based Strategies for the Classroom

Deeper learning, dialogic learning, and critical thinking are essential capabilities in the 21st-century environments we now operate. Apart from being important in themselves, they are also crucial in enabling the acquisition of many other 21st-century skills/capabilities such as problem solving, collaborative learning, innovation, information and media literacy, and so on. However, the majority of teachers in schools and instructors in higher education are inadequately prepared for the task of promoting deeper learning, dialogic learning, and critical thinking in their students. This is despite the fact that there are educational researchers who are developing and evaluating strategies for such promotion. The problem is bridging the gap between the educational researchers’ work and what gets conveyed to teachers and instructors as evidence-based, usable strategies.This book addresses that gap: in it, leading scholars from around the world describe strategies they have developed for successfully cultivating students’ capabilities for deeper learning and transfer of what they learn, dialogic learning and effective communication, and critical thought. They explore connections in the promotion of these capabilities, and they provide, in accessible form, research evidence demonstrating the efficacy of the strategies. They also discuss answers to the questions of how and why the strategies work.A seminal resource, this book creates tangible links between innovative educational research and classroom teaching practices to address the all-important question of how we can realize our ideals for education in the 21st century. It is a must read for pre-service and in-service teachers, teacher educators and professional developers, and educational researchers who truly care that we deliver education that will prepare and serve students for life.

Franklin Roosevelt: A Captivating Guide to the Life of FDR (Captivating History)

Explore How FDR Went from Almost Dying at Birth to leading the United States through the Great Depression and World War IIFree History BONUS Inside!As the thirty-second president of the United States of America, Franklin Delano Roosevelt is a common household name in both his home country and the world. Known as the man who led the United States through the Great Depression and World War II, Roosevelt was a leader and a statesman, a scholar, and a politician. Franklin D. Roosevelt is the only president to have served for three consecutive terms and voted in for a fourth, a fact that allows him to stand out among the long list of American presidents. Outside of his role as president of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt lived a full life. He was a father and a son, a husband and a career man. He was a bank officer and attended prestigious universities—Harvard University and Columbia University Law School—before practicing law. Additionally, he served as vice president for the Fidelity and Deposit Company. Perhaps most famously, Roosevelt served as governor of New York and president of the United States while he suffered from polio. Instead of allowing the disease to keep him from living a full life, he went above and beyond, training himself to walk without the power of his legs so that his voters would not know that he suffered in any capacity. What this book aims to do is determine who Franklin D. Roosevelt was as a person outside of the spotlight. This book wants to answer questions about this man. How did he interact with his wife and family? What were his exploits and his vices? His favored hobbies? Franklin Roosevelt: A Captivating Guide to the Life of FDR is an outline of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s life that not only gives a brief overview of his best-known feats but also provides a glimpse into who he was as a person.Some of the topics covered in this book include:FDR's Childhood and EducationHis Personal LifeEarly Political CareerPolio and Governing of New York1932 Presidential ElectionFirst Term in PresidencySecond Term in PresidencyThird Term in PresidencyRelations with Foreign LeadershipAnd much more!Scroll to the top and select the "BUY NOW" button for instant download

Readiness Learning Curriculum for the 21st Century Preschoolers

The Readiness Learning Curriculum is inspired by neuroscience discoveries, telling us about the link between science and early childhood care and education; and using them as guides while illuminating caring in nurturing young children considering their unique physical, mental and emotional needs.Caring in the past is merely keeping a child safe and clean. The concept of caring in the emerging future has changed; it is an intentional teaching practice that requires specialized knowledge and skills about children, their learning, growth, and development as whole human beings. It is a way of teaching trust, respect, and the value of human relationships.Science has proven that caring and nourishing young children from the inside and out through fun play and wholesome cognitive, emotional, and social learnings and life skills, as well as healthy eating, will make them ready for school and beyond. They emerged as resilient, emphatic, healthy matured human beings who are mentally, physically, and emotionally prepared to adapt to the uncertainties and challenges the 21st-century world poses.Let us help our children survive and thrive in these trying times.The Readiness Learning Curriculum has nine (9) parts:Part 1. Brain Research FindingsPart 2. The Power of Caring and Nurturing Relationship in Early Childhood Care and EducationPart 3. How do Preschoolers Play? What is the link between Play and Learning?
