This time Derek Holtzer, a government psychologist, will accompany him. But a freak storm leaves Derek unconscious. Brian's only hope is to transport Derek a hundred miles down the river to a trading post. He's survived with only a hatchet before--now can Brian build a raft and navigate an unknown river? For the first time it's not only Brian's survival that's at stake. . .

Download Free Literary Conversations in the Classroom PDF by Diane Barone Full Book and published by Teachers College Press. This book was released on 2016-12-02 with total page 161 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Combining research with real-life classroom examples, this book demonstrates how high-level conversations centered on fiction and nonfiction can promote students' understanding and help them meet and exceed a spectrum of standards. The authors demonstrate how to use literary conversations in small, heterogeneous groups to address multiple expectations within classrooms, such as close reading, vocabulary, background knowledge, literal and inferential comprehension, and responses to multimodal interpretation, nonfiction text features, and graphic organizers. The text includes the theoretical why, and the very practical how-to, to help teachers (grades 3–8) successfully implement serious, sustained student-group conversations about their reading. The recommendations for heterogeneous groups, rather than groups based on book selection or reading ability, will support all students—struggling readers and those reading at or above grade level. This practical resource shows teachers how to: Group students heterogeneously, from inexperienced participants to sophisticated readers. Support each student as he or she reads a nonfiction or fiction book. Engage students in critical conversations centered on their reading. Be mindful of the roles for each student and how these change based on genre. Assess student participation and literacy outcomes.

Book excerpt: These Sagas were from a time when men were knighted for achieving great feats, and great their feats were. Often dismissed by the King’s court and shunned by their peers, they went a-viking with a small band of loyal followers, or sometimes alone, to seek their fortune and fame in a way that only a Viking would know how. On their return home they were, more often than not, proclaimed as heroes to be honoured by their kings and given their rightful places in the court and the nation.

Book excerpt: When the treacherous O'Neill king allows Vikings to raid his home in Thomond, Brian Boru of the little known Dal Cais Clan, embarks on a life long journey to capture Ireland's high crown. But in a world where murder, sex and betrayal are commonly employed to gain political power, Brian realizes that those pretending to be his allies are working against him. With the help of Patric, the son of his closest friend, Brian wages bloody wars against the Vikings and the O'Neill Clan, inching closer to his crown. Only when he kidnaps the famed Kormlada, wife to two high kings including his nemesis, Malsakin O'Neill, does Brian realize that other worldly forces may be playing a role in his ascension. Both beautiful and mystical, Kormlada has a penchant for mischief as well as getting what she wants-and what she wants is power. With Kormlada's assistance, Brian captures his throne but his wife's over reaching ambition turns her attention toward another man-Patric's foster son, Njord the Black. The result is one of the bloodiest battles in Irish history.
