Where Am I Now? by Mara Wilson Summary

"Thoughtfully traces [Mara Wilson's] journey from child actress to Hollywood dropout...Who is she now? She's a writer." —NPR's "Guide To 2016’s Great Reads" “Growing up, I wanted to be Mara Wilson. Where Am I Now? is a delight.” —Ilana Glazer, cocreator and star of Broad City Named a best book of the month by GoodReads and Entertainment Weekly A former child actor best known for her starring roles in Matilda and Mrs. Doubtfire, Mara Wilson has always felt a little young and out of place: as the only kid on a film set full of adults, the first daughter in a house full of boys, a Valley girl in New York and a neurotic in California, and a grown-up the world still remembers as a little girl. Tackling everything from what she learned about sex on the set of Melrose Place, to discovering in adolescence that she was no longer “cute” enough for Hollywood, these essays chart her journey from accidental fame to relative (but happy) obscurity. They also illuminate universal struggles, like navigating love and loss, and figuring out who you are and where you belong. Candid, insightful, moving, and hilarious, Where Am I Now? introduces Mara Wilson as a brilliant new chronicler of the experience that is growing up female.

A deeply human-centered perspective on the origins of America's food Where Am I Eating? bridges the gap between global food producers and the American consumer, providing an insightful look at how our eating habits affect farmers and fishermen around the world. Follow the author on his global quest to meet the workers that nurture, harvest, and hunt our food, as he works alongside them—loading lobster diving boats in Nicaragua, harvesting bananas in Costa Rica, lugging cocoa beans in Ivory Coast with a modern-day slave, picking coffee beans in Colombia and hauling tomatoes in Indiana.

Where Am I Eating? is a touching, insightful, informative look at the origins of our food.

Owen McCafferty: Plays 2 by Owen McCafferty Summary

Absence of Women 'A fine example of theatre at its small-scale best.' Evening Standard Titanic 'Owen McCafferty's rigorous verbatim play provides an antidote to Titanic fatigue... Two months of hearings from 97 witnesses are whittled down to nine... What remains, even after a century, is a disturbing sense of moral ambiguity: 1, 517 dead and no one to blame.'

The piece packs sweeping questions about forgiveness and accountability into a tightly plotted encounter.'

The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan Summary

The Pilgrim's Progress from This World to That Which Is to Come by John Bunyan is a bright example of the new Christian allegory of XVII century. The author, son of an ordinary sheet metal worker (rather despised job that had to done by the people with the lowest social status in England), John Bunyan used to be a sinner and ribald before marriage. Only after marrying an orphan Marry, whose only heritage was two books: Plain Man’s Pathway to Heaven by Arthur Dent and Practice of Piety by Lewis Bayly, he started his uneasy way to moral recovery. Considerably soon, Bunyan became a preacher. He was numerously chased by the authorities as well as English Church for his Christian views, baptistic in particular. He began writing The Pilgrim's Progress from This World to That Which Is to Come in prison. The book is questionable and contradictive but written very sincerely and persuasively. This work is probably one of the most famous allegories ever written. The book is translated into many languages. Protestants translated often the book into different languages as the second one after the Bible.

Two Moons of Earth: Where Am I? by Norman Couse Summary

This is the story of John, an average man in an average town, somewhere in England, but the events that unfold, just happened to happen to John, who is cursed with the knowledge that there is more to life. Knowledge for some is a blessing, but for others, with no hope of change, stuck in a meaningless existence, it’s a curse. After all, ignorance is bliss.... isn’t it? Until one winter’s morning, he wakes up for another early morning shift. Thinking he’s late, he rushes down stairs and out the door, but this is where his adventure begins. For instead of stepping out into a cold winter’s morning, he finds himself waking to the sun beating down hard on his back. He is in the middle of a desert, how he got there, he has no idea, and where here is, is the biggest mystery of all. Which will take him on an adventure, across strange lands and places, seeing even stranger animals, and making friends with people and creatures, he couldn’t have imagined. Some of which would travel with him, showing and sharing some of the wonders along the way, in these strange yet sometimes dark and marvellous lands, as he searches for answers.

Where Am I Going? by T.M.Sparks Summary

“Where Am I Going” is about awareness in the human sense, it’s about being aware of our everyday existence here and now. Why we do the things we do, day in and day out? Is what we are doing day to day really profitable, and if so, in what way is it profitable? Does it profit our further meaning here in this life? Or is it all together a waste of our time? Have we considered the God factor? Are we considering the hereafter, and if not, why not? Are we surrounded by spirits, some good and some bad? If so, how does that come into play in our earthly agenda? Why does one exist, and where is our thoughts on this matter?Some of us go on living daily without regarding our immediate future. Our immediate future is after death. Eternity cannot be compared to our short lived time here in this existence. Just as one prepares for life by going to college, should we not much more prepare for our hereafter? If we are not, why are we not?Answers to these thoughts of question and much more will be found in the chapters ahead. I believe the information found here can inspire you for a more meaningful existence and a more profitable life.

Where Am I And Who's Winning? by Andrew Baker Summary

To the armchair fan, the life of the sports writer is one of unalloyed joy: all-expenses-paid trips to the most exciting events in the world, the best seats in the house, and one-on-one interviews with Anna Kournikova... Well, up to a point. Where Am I And Who's Winning? describes what it's really like to make your way through the world of sport, always on deadline, always between time zones, on a frantic, chaotic and hilarious tour of the planet's most famous and most bizarre sporting venues. There's football to be watched. And Formula One. And tennis. And two Olympics, two Commonwealth Games, ocean racing, curling, and of course the queen of sports - synchronised swimming. Permanently handicapped by jet-lag and ignorance, Andrew Baker travels by bullet train, bobsled, go-kart, and (most dangerous of all) bus in his constant quest to arrive at the match/race-meeting/mountain-top on time. Between soul-enhancing visits to the Dead Goat Saloon and the Arnold Schwarzenegger Museum, he breakfasts with Steve Redgrave, dines with Sebastian Coe and even takes in a game or two. Because nothing - not Brazilian muggers, nor Chinese security services - shall stand between him and his noble calling: to bring the great British public its daily sporting fix. Andrew Baker's brilliant comic debut will appeal to the armchair traveller and the armchair sports fan alike. But most of all to anyone who enjoys the misfortunes of others...

Learning Targets by Connie M. Moss,Susan M. Brookhart Summary

In Learning Targets, Connie M. Moss and Susan M. Brookhart contend that improving student learning and achievement happens in the immediacy of an individual lesson--what they call "today's lesson"—or it doesn't happen at all. The key to making today's lesson meaningful? Learning targets. Written from students' point of view, a learning target describes a lesson-sized chunk of information and skills that students will come to know deeply. Each lesson's learning target connects to the next lesson's target, enabling students to master a coherent series of challenges that ultimately lead to important curricular standards. Drawing from the authors' extensive research and professional learning partnerships with classrooms, schools, and school districts, this practical book - Situates learning targets in a theory of action that students, teachers, principals, and central-office administrators can use to unify their efforts to raise student achievement and create a culture of evidence-based, results-oriented practice. - Provides strategies for designing learning targets that promote higher-order thinking and foster student goal setting, self-assessment, and self-regulation. - Explains how to design a strong performance of understanding, an activity that produces evidence of students' progress toward the learning target. - Shows how to use learning targets to guide summative assessment and grading. Learning Targets also includes reproducible planning forms, a classroom walk-through guide, a lesson-planning process guide, and guides to teacher and student self-assessment. What students are actually doing during today's lesson is both the source of and the yardstick for school improvement efforts. By applying the insights in this book to your own work, you can improve your teaching expertise and dramatically empower all students as stakeholders in their own learning.
