THINGS FALL APART (P)

$13.00
New/Used: New
More Info

"A true classic of world literature . . . A masterpiece that has inspired generations of writers in Nigeria, across Africa, and around the world." --Barack Obama

Nominated as one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's The Great American Read

Things Fall Apart

is the first of three novels in Chinua Achebe's critically acclaimed African Trilogy. It is a classic narrative about Africa's cataclysmic encounter with Europe as it establishes a colonial presence on the continent. Told through the fictional experiences of Okonkwo, a wealthy and fearless Igbo warrior of Umuofia in the late 1800s, Things Fall Apart explores one man's futile resistance to the devaluing of his Igbo traditions by British political andreligious forces and his despair as his community capitulates to the powerful new order.

With more than 20 million copies sold and translated into fifty-seven languages, Things Fall Apart provides one of the most illuminating and permanent monuments to African experience. Achebe does not only capture life in a pre-colonial African village, he conveys the tragedy of the loss of that world while broadening our understanding of our contemporary realities.

    TRUE & FALSE: HERESY & COMMON SENSE FOR ACTOR (P)

    $14.95
    More Info
    One of our most brilliantly iconoclastic playwrights takes on the art of profession of acting with these words: invent nothing, deny nothing, speak up, stand up, stay out of school. Acting schools, "interpretation," "sense memory," "The Method"--David Mamet takes a jackhammer to the idols of contemporary acting, while revealing the true heroism and nobility of the craft. He shows actors how to undertake auditions and rehearsals, deal with agents and directors, engage audiences, and stay faithful to the script, while rejecting the temptations that seduce so many of their colleagues. Bracing in its clarity, exhilarating in its common sense, True and False is as shocking as it is practical, as witty as it is instructive, and as irreverent as it is inspiring.

    WHAT WORKS IN SCHOOLS (P)

    New/Used: New
    More Info

    Any school in the United States can operate at advanced levels of effectiveness--if it is willing to implement what is known about effective schooling. "If we follow the guidance offered from 35 years of research," says author Robert J. Marzano, "we can enter an era of unprecedented effectiveness for the public practice of education." In What Works in Schools: Translating Research into Action, Marzano synthesizes that research to provide clear and unequalled insight into the nature of schooling.

    Marzano defines the factors affecting student achievement and offers compelling answers to once-elusive questions:

  • How can schools set academic goals that do not underestimate student potential?
  • How critical are staff collegiality and professional development?
  • Do all students have equal opportunity to learn, given current curriculum requirements?
  • Supplemental versus required content-is there room for redefinition?
  • What types of parental and community involvement make a real difference?
  • What instructional strategies really work?
  • What influence can an individual teacher have (as separate from the influence of the overall school)?
  • How can teachers manage classrooms that promote positive student-and-teacher relationships?
  • How can teachers structure their curricula to better sequence and pace content?
  • Can teachers really overcome a student's negative home environment?
  • How does an understanding of motivation theories help students and teachers overcome learning obstacles?
  • What specific learning strategies can enhance learned intelligence and background knowledge?

    In each chapter, Marzano recommends specific-and attainable-action steps to implement successful strategies culled from the wealth of research data.

    Schools can and do affect student achievement. In his latest work, Marzano leads the way in establishing positive approaches that can make the long-held dream of effective public education a reality.

    When Work Disappears THE WORLD OF THE NEW URBAN POOR

    $12.99
    More Info
    Wilson, one of our foremost authorities on race and poverty, challenges decades of liberal and conservative pieties to look squarely at the devastating effects that joblessness has had on our urban ghettos. Marshaling a vast array of data and the personal stories of hundreds of men and women, Wilson persuasively argues that problems endemic to America's inner cities--from fatherless households to drugs and violent crime--stem directly from the disappearance of blue-collar jobs in the wake of a globalized economy. Wilson's achievement is to portray this crisis as one that affects all Americans, and to propose solutions whose benefits would be felt across our society. At a time when welfare is ending and our country's racial dialectic is more strained than ever, When Work Disappears is a sane, courageous, and desperately important work.


    "Wilson is the keenest liberal analyst of the most perplexing of all American problems...[This book is] more ambitious and more accessible than anything he has done before."
    "--The New Yorker"

    "From the Trade Paperback edition."
