The book offers practical, down-to-earth advice for American-born Jews who did not have the benefit of a traditional Jewish education. This facsimile edition of Esther Levy's "Jewish Cookery Book" was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts.

Summary Book Review So You Want to Be a Teacher? by Elizabeth H. Brett:
Download or read book So You Want to Be a Teacher? written by Elizabeth H. Brett and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2013-05-13 with total page 67 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: So You Want to Be a Teacher is a bit of light reading in a troubled world today. I left names by the wayside and emphasized actions, especially innovative behavior. The students I enjoyed were full of mischief, but for the most part, it was simply that—mischief. Very few of the students I taught in my forty years were bad—they just needed a bit of love and understanding. Who cares what Socrates said when you are a student who had no supper the night before? I try to be a stepping-stone, not a stumbling block.
Summary Book Review Lies My Teacher Told Me by James W. Loewen:
Download or read book Lies My Teacher Told Me written by James W. Loewen and published by The New Press. This book was released on 2018-07-17 with total page 383 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “Every teacher, every student of history, every citizen should read this book. It is both a refreshing antidote to what has passed for history in our educational system and a one-volume education in itself.” —Howard Zinn A new edition of the national bestseller and American Book Award winner, with a new preface by the author Since its first publication in 1995, Lies My Teacher Told Me has become one of the most important—and successful—history books of our time. Having sold nearly two million copies, the book also won an American Book Award and the Oliver Cromwell Cox Award for Distinguished Anti-Racist Scholarship and was heralded on the front page of the New York Times. For this new edition, Loewen has added a new preface that shows how inadequate history courses in high school help produce adult Americans who think Donald Trump can solve their problems, and calls out academic historians for abandoning the concept of truth in a misguided effort to be “objective.” What started out as a survey of the twelve leading American history textbooks has ended up being what the San Francisco Chronicle calls “an extremely convincing plea for truth in education.” In Lies My Teacher Told Me, James W. Loewen brings history alive in all its complexity and ambiguity. Beginning with pre-Columbian history and ranging over characters and events as diverse as Reconstruction, Helen Keller, the first Thanksgiving, the My Lai massacre, 9/11, and the Iraq War, Loewen offers an eye-opening critique of existing textbooks, and a wonderful retelling of American history as it should—and could—be taught to American students.
Summary Book Review Mental Illness, Stuttering and Gross Dysfunction: by S. L. C.:
Download or read book Mental Illness, Stuttering and Gross Dysfunction: written by S. L. C. and published by Dorrance Publishing. This book was released on 2014-11-05 with total page 52 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “There are families that are dysfunctional with all small letters, others dysfunctional with a capital D, and then there are families that are dysfunctional with all capital letters, and this is your family.” Growing up, the author’s life was far from being perfect. With her parents’ constant fighting (never knowing when it would start, but sure in the knowledge that it would), her older brother’s indifference, her sister’s bipolar and obsessive-compulsive disorder, and her younger brothers’ grossly disrespectful manners toward her (including their tendencies to do the wrong things), it’s no wonder she has kept a lot of anger inside her. And this, she believes, was the cause of her stuttering. This condition has been a debilitating factor for her, robbing her of confidence during her formative years. Yet she persevered, despite all the familial baggage, and managed to finish college and become her own woman.

Summary Book Review Fear Is The Mind Killer by James Mannion:
Download or read book Fear Is The Mind Killer written by James Mannion and published by John Catt Educational. This book was released on 2020-10-30 with total page 390 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For the last eight years, James and Kate have been working together to design, implement and evaluate a whole-school, evidence-informed approach to teaching and learning known as Learning Skills. An eight-year study with the University of Cambridge revealed that Learning Skills led to significant gains in subject learning, with rapid gains among students from disadvantaged backgrounds. In this practical guide for teachers and school leaders, James and Kate reveal a recipe for success rooted in three key concepts: metacognition (reflecting on learning); self-regulation (taking ownership over the learning process); and oracy (developing high-quality speaking and listening skills). This is a book about what happened when a small team of teachers seized an opportunity to provide their students with the knowledge, the skills and the confidence to take control of their own learning. This journey began with a question: how and what would we teach, if there was no one watching? On the other side of fear is the teacher you want to be, and the children you'd like to teach...
