Summary Book Review My Teacher Is Gay by Peter Van Maaren:
Download or read book My Teacher Is Gay written by Peter Van Maaren and published by Paragon Publishing. This book was released on 2011 with total page 170 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This popular book has only been available in Dutch, until now. The English translation is hotly anticipated. How does a teacher, especially a gay teacher, respond to the gradual increase in ethnic minorities in the student body? My Teacher is Gay tells the story of Peter van Maaren, who recounts his experiences at a community college in Amsterdam as the school undergoes significant changes. His upbeat and sometimes disconcerting stories involve not only his interactions with students but also his fellow faculty members and school administration. As it turned out, thanks to his openness and sense of humor his sexual orientation was not an issue for most of the students and their parents. It was often much more difficult to convince his colleagues and the administrators that a gay teacher does not automatically pose a threat to the school. His goal was to show that cultivating mutual understanding, respect and tolerance can actually make a positive contribution to the learning atmosphere. By being open and honest about his identity, he achieved far more with his students than he did when the school administration ordered him to keep quiet about his orientation and try to ignore any remarks about it. The Gay Krant editorial staff in Best has received a growing number of complaints about intolerance in education. Students today are afraid to be open about their feelings, and teachers report being forced back "in the closet." In response to this alarming trend we publish interviews in the paper. Many are anonymous because the subjects are so afraid to go public. Consequently I am thrilled that Peter van Maaren is the first to come forward to share his story. A highly worth reading, and at times moving, account. Now we can only hope that politicians, policymakers and other involved parties will learn something from it. - Henk Krol, Gay Krant editor-in-chief Education is not a matter of filling a vessel. Education is certainly not a budgeting exercise for administrators. Education is about lighting a fire of wisdom and humanity. Let this book by Peter van Maaren offer inspiration to do just that. -Jan Marijnissen, floor leader of the Dutch Socialist Party Peter van Maaren, educator and author of the book My Teacher is Gay, won the Humanistisch Verbond's (Dutch Humanist and Ethical Union) special "Get Involved" ("Bemoei je d'r mee") award for "the dialogue about homosexuality, religion, personal philosophy and ethics." Winner of special 'Get Involved' Award The book My Teacher is Gay is "not only fun to read but also extremely surprising and draws attention to the fact that in many cases the problem is not so much the ethnic minority students as it is the native born faculty and administrators," according to the "Get Involved" award jury's report. Author Peter van Maaren's attempt to reassess opinions about Muslim youth through his book was one reason why he earned first prize. The Dutch Humanist and Ethical Union established the special "Get Involved" award for the sake of helping turn the tide with respect to waning tolerance for homosexuality. The award is normally given once every two years to individuals and institutions that "make a contribution towards a society in which there is greater understanding for one another Winner of special 'Get Involved' Award In a hostile environment a gay teacher needs backing, from his colleagues and the school board. A compelling story from a teacher who got support from the cultural and religious divers students and their parents but not from the management. - Boris Dittrich, Acting Director LGBT rights program Human Rights Watch.

Summary Book Review Lies My Teacher Told Me: Young Readers’ Edition by James W. Loewen:
Download or read book Lies My Teacher Told Me: Young Readers’ Edition written by James W. Loewen and published by The New Press. This book was released on 2019-04-23 with total page 282 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Now adapted for young readers ages 12 through 18, the national bestseller that makes real American history come alive in all of its conflict, drama, and complexity Lies My Teacher Told Me is one of the most important—and successful—history books of our time. Having sold nearly two million copies, the book won an American Book Award and the Oliver Cromwell Cox Award for Distinguished Anti-Racist Scholarship. Now Rebecca Stefoff, the acclaimed nonfiction children's writer who adapted Howard Zinn's bestseller A People's History of the United States for young readers, makes Loewen's beloved work available to younger students. Essential reading in our age of fake news and slippery, sloppy history, Lies My Teacher Told Me: Young Readers' Edition cuts through the mindless optimism and outright lies found in most textbooks that are often not even really written by their "authors." Loewen is, as historian Carol Kammen has said, the history teacher we all should have had. Beginning with pre-Columbian history and then covering characters and events as diverse as the first Thanksgiving, Helen Keller, the My Lai massacre, 9/11, and the Iraq War, Loewen's lively, provocative telling of American history is a "counter-textbook that retells the story of the American past" (The Nation). This streamlined young readers' edition is rich in vivid details and quotations from primary sources that poke holes in the textbook versions of history and help students develop a deeper understanding of our world. Lies My Teacher Told Me: Young Readers' Edition brings this classic text to a new generation of readers (and their parents and teachers) who will welcome and value its honesty, its humor, and its integrity.
Summary Book Review The Teacher's Book of Days by Susan Clark Studer:
Download or read book The Teacher's Book of Days written by Susan Clark Studer and published by IAP. This book was released on 2010-12-01 with total page 387 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Teacher’s Book of Days is a motivational and inspirational book for all individuals who work with young people, whether in public or private schools, youth organizations, sports, tutoring, or for parents. The book is authored by Susan Clark Studer, Ph.D., a professor of education, who has taught all ages; worked with children in clubs, scouts, and sports; currently teaches teachers enrolled in education programs ; and who is the parent of two grown children. This book is for all adults who are entrusted with young lives. Written in a readable format, The Teacher’s Book of Days is a combination of informative and thought-provoking daily readings designed to encourage the reader and help educators through their busy and often-times stressful days. Placing the Book of Days in perspective, it is a combination of short, uplifting, motivational and informative thoughts, gleaning from the writings of educators past and present and personal experience. The daily passages are not written for any particular year, and dates are generic, therefore it will be salable year after year. Teachers are a very valuable resource, members of society who often do not receive the encouragement they need. This is even truer today in a school atmosphere of test scores, shrinking budgets, and children growing up in less than ideal educative circumstances. This book is designed to not only encourage, but to empower educators to become strong teachers of society’s children. Teachers can buy this book for themselves or give it as gifts to colleagues and friends. Parents may buy this book as teacher gifts or as tokens of appreciation for their child‘s teacher. School districts may give it to teachers during teacher appreciation week or have it available in on site libraries for staff members to read or to quote from for daily announcements. Universities may give it to graduating future teachers. The potential is great for this book’s success.

Summary Book Review Understanding the Teacher Union Contract by Myron Lieberman:
Download or read book Understanding the Teacher Union Contract written by Myron Lieberman and published by Transaction Publishers. This book was released on with total page 244 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Unionization of teachers has led to fundamental changes in the management of education and in relations between teachers and school districts. Understanding the Teacher Union Contract explores the implications of this collective-bargaining revolution in education. Through detailed examination Lieberman shows how the kinds of provisions typically found in teacher union contracts affect the educational workplace and education reform, and how they might be revised to the benefit of students, parents, and the public. Lieberman begins with the respective roles of school district management and teacher unions. Unlike managers in the private sector, school district officials are part of a government agency that is legally responsible for operating public schools in the public interest. They must balance the interests of employees with the needs of students, taxpayers, and parents, as well as with district educational goals. Teacher unions' primary objectives are to enhance employee welfare and to promote the union as an effective organization. Unions must balance the differing needs of various groups within their membership -- for example, by resolving tensions between older teachers who want improved retirement benefits and younger teachers who might prefer more rapid salary increases. Lieberman shows how competing union and management goals play out in collective bargaining and are embodied in teacher union contracts. He argues that by developing an understanding of teacher unions, their role, and their needs, district officials and school board members can bargain more effectively and develop a productive ongoing relationship with unions. This highly readable book will be of interestnot only to school administrators and board members but also to teacher representatives, parents, taxpayers, and members of the media who report on education.
Summary Book Review I Was Just A Child by April Longabaugh:
Download or read book I Was Just A Child written by April Longabaugh and published by Christian Faith Publishing, Inc.. This book was released on 2021-03-11 with total page 374 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Pat Potter McAndrews, M.A 1515 The Alameda, Suite 202 San Jose, CA. 95126 408-287-2103 November 5, 2008 To Whom it May Concern: I am writing to endorse a book written by April Longabaugh named I WAS JUST A CHILD. This book was written as a part of her therapy to address the issues of her physical, emotional, and sexual abuse which she suffered at the hands of her parents. I encouraged her to write and use art to express her feelings and thoughts about the severe trauma that she experienced as she was growing up in her family. It is a miracle that April can function today as a complete human being that expresses love and kindness to others, including her parents. This process has allowed April to heal and be able to share her growth and insight with others in a very powerful modality. I have witnessed how her story has affected others and helps them address their issues and begin the long journey of healing. For those who were not abused, this book is enlightening and informs them that something needs to be done to stop abuse. I believe that this book has something in it for everyone. Yours truly, Pat Potter McAndrews, M.A.,BCPC This book is about a family consumed by violence, and also how it affected different members of the family. This book also shows how the abuse or violence affected the parents as the perpetrators. Then the book shows where the violence came from and how it came to be. How the father felt he was God's equal and how the mother wanted to be a queen. When the parents didn't get the reverence they wanted the children were dealt with and received unbelievable treatment. Finally, how the oldest child while fighting off advances from both parents still learned to survive, cope, heal, forgive, and then use the past and help others.
