Tupac Shakur's most intimate and honest thoughts were uncovered only after his death with the instant classic The Rose That Grew from Concrete. Roses are a symbol of beauty and love. The rose correlates with people, and how beautiful people are and how even in our imperfections we can be loved. Being that the rose grew from concrete something hard and that has no nourishment, man made cement, and not really appreciated, a thing that people walk all over and don't really take care to appreciate that it's there. The concrete represents the ghetto, or any place that's looked at as a place that has nothing good to come out of it. For the first time in paperback, this book represent the career and the personal biography of the legend Tupac Shakur.

This is an analogy of the birth of Jesus Christ and His growing up to the potential He was sent for. Therefore, it's a Christmas story not yet told. Here is a rose that grew out of the concrete; through hope and prayer she learned how to walk without having feet. Her gifts taught her how to survive, and it was her hope that kept her alive. Boundless is the rose that grew out the concrete. Funny it seems, but by keeping her dreams, she learned how to breathe fresh air when only a few even cared. Boundless is the rose that grew out of the concrete.

It is also for college professors who prepare pre-service teachers to work with those students.

It delineates unique challenges that ELLs experience, offers ELLs’ learning stories, and suggests concrete strategies with classroom teaching examples across academic disciplines. The 2nd edition broadens the scope of the 1st edition in several aspects. Specifically, it includes two chapters about secondary ELLs’ previous educational experiences in their home countries, a chapter on subject matter lesson planning with ELLs in mind with teacher collaborative strategies, and more principle- based and field-tested effective instructional and assessment strategies for working with ELLs.

Volume II in the Evolution of Gestalt series, Relational Child, Relational Brain continues the development of the paradigm shift that places human development in a field that is deeply complex and fundamentally one of interconnection, taking us away from the limiting view of us as separate individuals. It builds on the foundation of contemporary views of relational neurodevelopment and the profound influence of relationship on brain growth. It shows how, particularly in the first two years of life, but continuing across the whole of childhood and adolescence into early adulthood, the relational field is the context of child development. The focus then broadens out to examine the intersubjective influence of community, culture, and social and physical support. Backed by neurobiological and related research, it offers many examples of relational Gestalt practice with children, adolescents, and their families, with stories of loss, trauma, isolation, and other adversities. Not just an invaluable resource for child and adolescent therapists, Relational Child, Relational Brain goes beyond the Esalen Study Conference from which it emerged and is a further invitation and challenge to apply relational Gestalt practice as a coherent and effective way forward in the troubled world of today.

This legendary rapper was gunned down in Las Vegas in 1996, but not before having multi-platinum releases and a promising acting career. A prime example of the line rappers walk between street credibility and their art, Tupac pushed the East-West rap feud both as a real fight and as a tool to influence media coverage of his career. Tupac's raps were part traditional social protest and part gritty descriptions of street life in urban neighborhoods. This book includes details of his life, career, and like the other Essential Lives Cut Short books, covers the controversies surrounding his life and death. Lives Cut Short is a series in Essential Library, an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.

In her new book, prominent professional developer Yvette Jackson focuses on students' strengths, rather than their weaknesses, to reinvigorate educators to inspire learning and high intellectual performance. Through the lens of educational psychology and historical reforms, Jackson responds to the faltering motivation and confidence of educators in terms of its effects on closing the achievement gap. The author seeks to rekindle the belief in the vast capacity of underachieving urban students, and offers strategies to help educators inspire intellectual performance. Jackson proposes that a paradigm shift towards a focus on strengths will reinvigorate educators passion for teaching and belief in their ability to raise the intellectual achievement of their students. Jackson addresses how educators can systematically support the development of motivation, reflective and cognitive skills, and high performance when standards and assessments are predisposed to non-conceptual methods. Furthermore, she examines challenges and offers strategies for dealing with cultural disconnects, the influence of new technologies, and language preferences of students.

Enemy Land

"Enemy Land" is a new book by a talented author named Nicholas Kyasima. Enemy Land is a collection of short stories all of which are presented in different angles. The short stories can not be said to be poems even though that's what they seem. Some stories may appear as love songs, other stories might look like a means of expression by someone who is really hurt. Poems or not, this book carries serious entertainment and most importantly of all, knowledge in the most simplest of ways. As the reader, you don't get a chance to be bored. For example, in the first chapter of Enemy Land, a guy who is secretly in love with a woman, asks her to meet him at the London bridge station she doesn't show up. This causes wretchedness which is expressed line by line and as you read it, you'll feel like it is you who has had the experience. It is a work of a genius. This book Enemy Land carries stories that are ridiculously full of expression. So much so that a teenage boy who wants to play he's music system loud on full blast listening to Tupac or 50 cent would sit down and read this book. If boys that are not into reading books love Enemy Land imagine how grown men and women that are into books feel about it. There's no telling how many genres are presented in Enemy Land. Apart from poems and love stories as mention earlier, in this book, you'll also have war stories based on the harsh reality in the ghetto areas of London. These are the most dramatic ones especially when you adapt the persona of a Black African Boy from which the stories were written. Once again, it's genius. Enemy Land has so many perspectives and with that, it is made for everyone to enjoy. Nobody is left out. On top of all that you'll gain new experiences from reading this book because the person that wrote it (Nicholas Kyasima) based it on his real life as it is now. Nothing in this book is fiction. It's all reality.

2007 Arts Club of Washington’s National Award for Arts Writing - Finalist SEE ALSO: Pimps Up, Ho’s Down: Hip Hop’s Hold on Young Black Women by T. Denean Sharpley-Whiting. With roots that stretch from West Africa through the black pulpit, hip-hop emerged in the streets of the South Bronx in the 1970s and has spread to the farthest corners of the earth. To the Break of Dawn uniquely examines this freestyle verbal artistry on its own terms. A kid from Queens who spent his youth at the epicenter of this new art form, music critic William Jelani Cobb takes readers inside the beats, the lyrics, and the flow of hip-hop, separating mere corporate rappers from the creative MCs that forged the art in the crucible of the street jam. The four pillars of hip hop—break dancing, graffiti art, deejaying, and rapping—find their origins in traditions as diverse as the Afro-Brazilian martial art Capoeira and Caribbean immigrants’ turnstile artistry. Tracing hip-hop’s relationship to ancestral forms of expression, Cobb explores the cultural and literary elements that are at its core. From KRS-One and Notorious B.I.G. to Tupac Shakur and Lauryn Hill, he profiles MCs who were pivotal to the rise of the genre, verbal artists whose lineage runs back to the black preacher and the bluesman. Unlike books that focus on hip-hop as a social movement or a commercial phenomenon, To the Break of Dawn tracks the music's aesthetic, stylistic, and thematic evolution from its inception to today's distinctly regional sub-divisions and styles. Written with an insider's ear, the book illuminates hip-hop's innovations in a freestyle form that speaks to both aficionados and newcomers to the art.

Now a global and transnational phenomenon, hip hop culture continues to affect and be affected by the institutional, cultural, religious, social, economic and political landscape of American society and beyond. Over the past two decades, numerous disciplines have taken up hip hop culture for its intellectual weight and contributions to the cultural life and self-understanding of the United States. More recently, the academic study of religion has given hip hop culture closer and more critical attention, yet this conversation is often limited to discussions of hip hop and traditional understandings of religion and a methodological hyper-focus on lyrical and textual analyses. Religion in Hip Hop: Mapping the Terrain provides an important step in advancing and mapping this new field of Religion and Hip Hop Studies. The volume features 14 original contributions representative of this new terrain within three sections representing major thematic issues over the past two decades. The Preface is written by one of the most prolific and founding scholars of this area of study, Michael Eric Dyson, and the inclusion of and collaboration with Bernard 'Bun B' Freeman fosters a perspective internal to Hip Hop and encourages conversation between artists and academics.
