What is trauma and what does it mean for the literacy curriculum? In this book, elementary teachers will learn how to approach difficult experiences through the everyday instruction and interactions in their classrooms. Readers will look inside classrooms and literacies across genres to see what can unfold when teachers are committed to compassionate, critical, and relational practice. Weaving her own challenging experiences into chapters brimming with children’s writing and voices, Dutro emphasizes that issues of power and privilege matter centrally to how attention to trauma positions children. The book includes questions and prompts for discussion, reflection, and practice and describes pedagogies and strategies designed to provide opportunities for children to bring the varied experiences of life, including trauma, to their school literacies, especially their writing, in positive, meaningful, and supported ways. Book Features: Offers a reconceptualization of trauma as a source of connection, reciprocity, knowledge, and literacy engagement. Identifies three key tenets that teachers can follow to ensure that children’s experiences and perspectives are honored. Shares classroom stories and literacy lessons, including many examples of children’s writing. Includes sum-up reflections and discussion prompts. Provides up-to-date lists of resources.

Sparks fly when two ex-best-friends team up to save a family business in this swoon-worthy and witty debut perfect for fans of Jenn Bennett and Sarah Dessen. Caroline “Chuck” Wilson has big plans for spring break—hit up estate sales to score vintage fashion finds and tour the fashion school she dreams of attending. But her dad wrecks those plans when he asks her to spend vacation working the counter at Bigmouth’s Bowl, her family’s failing bowling alley. Making things astronomically worse, Chuck finds out her dad is way behind on back rent—meaning they might be losing Bigmouth’s, the only thing keeping Chuck’s family in San Francisco. And the one person other than Chuck who wants to do anything about it? Beckett Porter, her annoyingly attractive ex-best friend. So when Beckett propositions Chuck with a plan to make serious cash infiltrating the Bay Area action bowling scene, she accepts. But she can’t shake the nagging feeling that she’s acting irrational—too much like her mother for comfort. Plus, despite her best efforts to keep things strictly business, Beckett’s charm is winning her back over...in ways that go beyond friendship. If Chuck fails, Bigmouth’s Bowl and their San Francisco legacy are gone forever. But if she succeeds, she might just get everything she ever wanted.

In a story that spans one-fourth of America's history, Ken Peery reveals what can be accomplished when a person learns to "Delight yourself in the Lord." (Ps. 37:4) From the story of how his ancestors came to America, to small town life in the Midwest, to Naval service during World War II, to a distinguished career in law and Christian mediation, to political involvement, to a miraculous medical recovery, Ken's story is not only all-American, it is a compelling story of the benefits of "delighting in the Lord." What is a "methobapterian?" What is Justice? How do you define it? Can it be defined? What would you do if you and your mate were seriously sunburned on your honeymoon? Re-live trips through the Gorges of the upper Yangtze River. Ken Peery was born in 1925 and raised and nurtured in Emporia, Kansas. After service in the US Navy in WWII, Ken practiced law in Emporia, did a seven year stint as a lawyer in a government agency in Washington, DC, and, in 1962, re-entered law practice in Concordia, Kansas. In 1982 he "escaped" from law practice to establish Christian conciliation programs in the Kansas City area and later in Bentonville and Rogers, Arkansas. Ken and Doris, his wife, have been married 56 years. They are the parents of two sons, grandparents of six grandchildren and have two great- grandsons. The Peerys live in Topeka, Kansas.
