Love, Stargirl by Summary

The New York Times bestselling sequel to Newbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli’s modern-day classic Stargirl, now an original film on Disney+! And don't miss the author's highly anticipated new novel, Dead Wednesday! Love, Stargirl picks up a year after Stargirl ends and reveals the new life of the beloved character who moved away so suddenly at the end of Stargirl. The novel takes the form of "the world's longest letter," in diary form, going from date to date through a little more than a year's time. In her writing, Stargirl mixes memories of her bittersweet time in Mica, Arizona, with involvements with new people in her life. In Love, Stargirl, we hear the voice of Stargirl herself as she reflects on time, life, Leo, and - of course - love. “Spinelli is a poet of the prepubescent. . . . No writer guides his young characters, and his readers, past these pitfalls and challenges and toward their futures with more compassion.” —The New York Times

From Newbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli comes the story of a girl searching for happiness inside the walls of a prison. And don't miss the author's highly anticipated new novel, Dead Wednesday! Cammie O'Reilly lives at the Hancock County Prison--not as a prisoner, she's the warden's daughter.

But even though Cammie's free to leave the prison, she's still stuck. And sad, and really mad. Her mother died saving her from harm when she was just a baby. You wouldn't think you could miss something you never had, but on the eve of her thirteenth birthday, the thing Cammie most wants is a mom. A prison might not be the best place to search for a mother, but Cammie is determined and she's willing to work with what she's got. "A tapestry of grief and redemption, woven by a master storyteller ....Moving and memorable." --Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

This classic book is perfect for fans of Gordon Korman and Carl Hiaasen. Just like other kids, Zinkoff rides his bike, hopes for snow days, and wants to be like his dad when he grows up.

Other kids have their own word to describe him, but Zinkoff is too busy to hear it. He doesn't know he's not like everyone else. And one winter night, Zinkoff's differences show that any name can someday become "hero." With some of his finest writing to date and great wit and humor, Jerry Spinelli creates a story about a boy's individuality surpassing the need to fit in and the genuine importance of failure. As readers follow Zinkoff from first through sixth grade, it becomes impossible not to identify with and root for him through failures and triumphs. The perfect classroom read.

Once she learns how Josh has made a name for himself, Clara realizes living with him might make her the Wheaton’s most scandalous story yet. His professional prowess inspires her to take tackling the stigma against female desire into her own hands. They may not agree on much, but Josh and Clara both believe women deserve better sex.

Critical Explorations of Young Adult Literature by Victor Malo-Juvera,Crag Hill Summary

Recognizing the determination of a canon as an ongoing process of discussion and debate, which helps us to better understand the concept of meaningful and important literature, this edited collection turns a critical spotlight on young adult literature (YAL) to explore some of the most read, taught, and discussed books of our time. By considering the unique criteria which might underpin the classification of a YAL canon, this text raises critical questions of what it means to define canonicity and designate certain books as belonging to the YAL canon. Moving beyond ideas of what is taught or featured in textbooks, the volume emphasizes the role of adolescents’ choice, the influence of popular culture, and above all the multiplicity of ways in which literature might be interpreted and reflected in the lives of young readers. Chapters examine an array of texts through varied critical lenses, offer detailed literary analyses and divergent interpretations, and consider how themes might be explored in pedagogical contexts. By articulating the ways in which teachers and young readers may have traditionally interpreted YAL, this volume will extend debate on canonicity and counter dominant narratives that posit YAL texts as undeserving of canonical status. This text will be of great interest to graduate and postgraduate students, academics, professionals, and libraries in the field of young adult literature, fiction literacy, children’s literacy and feminist studies.

Teaching the Tough Issues by Jacqueline Darvin Summary

Teaching the Tough Issues introduces a groundbreaking teaching method intended to help English, social studies, and humanities teachers address difficult or controversial topics in their secondary classrooms. Because these issues are rarely addressed in teacher preparation programs, few teachers feel confident facilitating conversations around culturally and politically sensitive issues in ways that honor their diverse students’ voices and lead to critical, transformative thinking. The author describes a four-step method to help teachers structure discussions and written assignments while concurrently assisting them in addressing Common Core State Standards. Designed to aid students in both developing their own viewpoints on contentious issues and in actively critiquing those of their teachers and peers, these practices will enhance any humanities curriculum. Book Features: Offers guidance for exploring difficult and/or controversial aspects of course content.Provides an excellent means of differentiating instruction and promoting critical literacy.Helps teachers to foster positive behavior and decision-making with their students.Enables students to improve their reading, writing, speaking, listening, and observation skills.Assists teachers in attaining the CCSS and other curricular mandates in their secondary humanities classrooms. “Darvin has provided us all with a powerful tool for guiding students as they explore their identity, unafraid to explore what it means to be human.” —From the Foreword by Douglas Fisher, professor of educational leadership, San Diego State University “Darvin takes on the big, important issues in adolescents’ lives that often go unaddressed in most classrooms. With an equal balance of sensitivity and directness, she exhorts teachers to name, deconstruct, and think curricularly about the cultural and political forces influencing and being influenced by today’s youth.” —William Brozo, professor of literacy, George Mason University, author of Wham!

Space Science and Public Engagement by Amy Paige Kaminski Summary

Space Science and Public Engagement: 21st Century Perspectives and Opportunities critically examines the many dimensions of public engagement with space science by exploring case studies that show a spectrum of public engagement formats, ranging from the space science community's efforts to communicate developments to the public, to citizenry attempting to engage with space science issues.

Fall by Kristen Callihan Summary

The first time I met Jax Blackwood things went a little sideways. In my defense, I didn’t know he was Jax Blackwood—who expects a legendary rock star to be shopping for groceries? More importantly, a blizzard was coming and he was about to grab the last carton of mint-chocolate chip. Still, I might have walked away, but then he smugly dared me to try and take the coveted ice cream. So I kissed him. And distracted that mint-chip right out of his hands. Okay, it was a dirty move, but desperate times and all that. Besides, I never expected he’d be my new neighbor. An annoying neighbor who takes great pleasure in reminding me that I owe him ice cream but would happily accept more kisses as payment. An irresistible neighbor who keeps me up while playing guitar naked–spectacularly naked–in his living room. Clearly, avoidance is key. Except nothing about Jax is easy to ignore—not the way he makes me laugh, or that his particular brand of darkness matches mine, or how one look from him melts me faster than butter under a hot sun. Neither of us believes in love or forever. Yet we’re quickly becoming each other’s addiction. But we could be more. We could be everything. All we have to do is trust enough to fall

Schule in Literatur und Film by ide - informationen zur deutschdidaktik Summary

DIE SCHULE IN LITERATUR UND FILM - EINE HASSLIEBE Das Verhältnis von Schule und Literatur/Film prägt seit jeher eine 'Hassliebe'. Kritische Abrechnungen mit der eignen Schulzeit prägen gerade die österreichische Literatur, andererseits ist die Schule eine wichtige literarische und filmische Sozialisationsinstanz. Ein besonderer Fokus dieses Hefts liegt auf schulischen Rollenmodellen und ihrer künstlerischen Darstellung - vor allem von Lehrer/innen. Die dritte Sektion des Bandes widmet sich inter- und transmedialen Reflexionen, etwa Verfilmungen von Schulromanen. AUS DEM INHALT Schule und Film/Literatur - ein produktives Spannungsverhältnis Kaspar H. Spinner: Die Schriftsteller und der Literaturunterricht - eine Hassliebe? Matthias Pauldrach: "Nicht für das Leben, sondern für die Schule lernen wir!" Eine Reflexion der Beziehung von Schule und Leben anhand von Wes Andersons Spielfilm Rushmore Herwig Gottwald: Ernst Jünger als Autor über und für die Schule Hannes Schweiger: LehrerInnen als (sprachliche) Autoritäten. Unterrichtsimpulse zur Auseinandersetzung mit machtvollen Ordnungen und ihrer kritischen Reflexion Werner Wintersteiner: Entstörungsdienste - die (Anti-)Pädagogik der Christine Nöstlinger. Plädoyer für eine Neubewertung ihres Werkes LehrerInnenbilder - Reflexionen eines umstrittenen Berufs Ewald Arenz: Lehrer? Ach so. Markus Vorauer: Ambivalenz und Scheitern. Über einige widersprüchliche Lehr-Performances in aktuellen Spielfilmen Markus Kreuzwieser: "Ich bin kein Schriftsteller, sondern Mittelschullehrer" - oder doch umgekehrt? Wiedergelesen: Peter Henischs Bali oder Swoboda steigt aus Film, Literatur, Schule - inter- und transmedial Klaus Maiwald: "Ich kann nicht Lehrer werden." Wie Erich Kästner der Schule und wie das fliegende Klassenzimmer dem Schulmeister Kästner entrinnt Katharina Ruck: Schülergewalt gegen Lehrer. Unterrichtsvorschlag zu Juli Zehs Roman Spieltrieb und seiner Verfilmung
