Aus diesen schonungslosen Berichten werden kleine, beinahe zärtliche, manchmal auch ganz komische, ans Herz gehende Lebensgeschichten. "Ein außerordentlich beeindruckendes Buch über die Fähigkeit der Jugendlichen, sich in der Welt zu behaupten, über Mut und Freundschaft." Publishers Weekly "Der Roman bleibt nahe an der Sprache der Jugendlichen, gibt sich aufmüpfig und frech, wehrt sich gegen die Zumutungen einer Welt, in der Ungerechtigkeiten zum selbstverständlichen Alltag gehören." Salzburger Nachrichten >...einer der großartigsten Adoleszenzromane..Unglaublich, wie elegant und stilsicher die amerikanische Autorin Schicksale gefährdeter Jugendlicher aus Problemfamilien zu einer Sinofonie verschränkt hat, in der die Liebe ihre Stimme mächtig erhebt - ohne jede Sentimentalität, eher spröde. Ein literarisch wie emotional glänzender Erstling." Ellen Pomikalko, BuchMarkt "Das wohl hervorstechendste Buch dieses Herbstes!" Die Furche "Wie in diesem Roman von dem Leben von elf Jugendlichen aus Brooklyn und ihren nicht immer einfachen Kindheiten erzählt wird, das ist eine Ausnahme: Bestechend authentisch, klug und herzergreifend. ein literarischer Erstling, den man so schnell nicht vergisst, denn er ist voller Hoffnung und Lebensmut." www.buchecke-online.de "... besticht durch seine Intensität: Die Autorin lässt die Kinder und Jugendlichen selbst ihr schwieriges Leben schonungslos erzählen, und jede tagebuchähnliche Geschichte ist auf ihre Weise interessant und fesselnd ...

Und sie zeigen auf beeindruckende Weise, wie sich Jugendliche in der Welt zu behaupten wissen. Klasse! DAK Magazin 4/02 ...>Das Leben ist komisch ist auch und vor allem ein Roman über Liebe, Freundschaft, Courage und Gerettetwerden...Außergewöhnlich ist dabei auch die Konstruktion: Die tagebuchähnlich intimen Notizen der Figuren sind zu einem komplexen Werk verwoben, das für manchen jugendlichen Leser eine Herausforderung sein wird. FAZ, 4.01.03 Mitten aus dem Leben schöpft die Autorin und webt gekonnt einen Teppich...Jedes Kapitel, jede Skizze innerhalb eines Kapitels baut eine eigene Spannung auf - und doch verbinden sich die Geschichten zu einem Fries, zu einem bestechenden Ganzen.

Freedom Riders

Author: Raymond Arsenault
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 0199792968
Release Date: 2011-03-11
Genre: Social Science

The saga of the Freedom Rides is an improbable, almost unbelievable story. In the course of six months in 1961, four hundred and fifty Freedom Riders expanded the realm of the possible in American politics, redefining the limits of dissent and setting the stage for the civil rights movement. In this new version of his encyclopedic Freedom Riders, Raymond Arsenault offers a significantly condensed and tautly written account. With characters and plot lines rivaling those of the most imaginative fiction, this is a tale of heroic sacrifice and unexpected triumph. Arsenault recounts how a group of volunteers--blacks and whites--came together to travel from Washington DC through the Deep South, defying Jim Crow laws in buses and terminals and putting their lives on the line for racial justice. News photographers captured the violence in Montgomery, shocking the nation and sparking a crisis in the Kennedy administration. Here are the key players--their fears and courage, their determination and second thoughts, and the agonizing choices they faced as they took on Jim Crow--and triumphed. Winner of the Owsley Prize Publication is timed to coincide with the airing of the American Experience miniseries documenting the Freedom Rides "Arsenault brings vividly to life a defining moment in modern American history." --Eric Foner, The New York Times Book Review "Authoritative, compelling history." --William Grimes, The New York Times "For those interested in understanding 20th-century America, this is an essential book." --Roger Wilkins, Washington Post Book World "Arsenault's record of strategy sessions, church vigils, bloody assaults, mass arrests, political maneuverings and personal anguish captures the mood and the turmoil, the excitement and the confusion of the movement and the time." --Michael Kenney, The Boston Globe

Musiello, and Eugene Wolfson" Using Children's Literature Across the Curriculum: A Handbook of Instructional Strategies" This resource uniquely offers preservice and inservice teachers templates for using quality children's literature to implement six themes across grades K-8. The themes are based on national curriculum standards and text sets are carefully selected to facilitate discussion, analysis, and problem solving across the grades. "Using Children's Literature Across the Curriculum, "provides teachers with a guide to using multilayered texts to facilitate students' attainment of critical literacy. It is designed to be a supplemental guide for teachers in designing literacy instruction. The instructional sequence includes collaborative inquiry activities across the curriculum to extend each theme to math, science, technology and social studies. Teachers are shown how to incorporate family literacy with a component entitled 'Home School Connections' and to differentiate instruction for individual learners with a section entitled 'On Your Own Activities'. The theme concludes with a critical literacy activity that applies the content knowledge of the theme with collaborative inquiry.
