The fisherman's tomb : the true story of the Vatican's secret search by John O'Neill( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1939, a team of workers beneath the Vatican unearthed an early Christian grave. This surprising discovery launched a secret quest that would last decades -- a quest to discover the long-lost burial place of the apostle Peter. From earliest times, Christian tradition held that Peter -- a lowly fisherman from Galilee, whom Christ made leader of his Church -- was executed in Rome by Emperor Nero and buried on Vatican Hill. But his tomb had been lost to history. Now, funded anonymously by a wealthy American, a small army of workers embarked on the dig of a lifetime. The incredible sometimes shocking, story of the seventy-five-year search and its key players has never been fully told -- until now. The quest would pit one of the twentieth century's most talented archaeologists -- a woman -- against top Vatican insiders. The Fisherman's Tomb is a story of the triumph of faith and genius against all odds, "--Page 4 of cover

Since the 1980s, several major trends have impelled educators to make especially significant changes to the k-12 curriculum in the various subject areas. Calls to provide students with "authentic" and interdisciplinary learning experiences, upgrade standards, and help all students achieve at a high level are affecting curriculum content and organization. The articles in this book were originally published in "Curriculum Update," a quarterly newsletter of the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, and are directed at a broad audience of educators. The articles provide background information and practical ideas for pursuing the elusive goal of a "state-of-the-art" curriculum. Contents have been arranged according to seven subject areas: language arts, mathematics, social studies, science, the arts, world languages, and health and physical education. (Mlh)

It focuses on bilingual education and English as a Second Language programs, with discussions on keeping native languages alive; character and values education and the importance of morality and service; conflict resolution, constructivism, and the need for problem-based learning; early childhood education, which includes strategies for supporting families and teaching young children; inclusion; ways to integrate the curriculum; multicultural education and choosing multicultural literature; multiple intelligences; strategies for preparing students for the workplace, such as school-to-work programs and tech-prep programs; thinking skills; and tips on moving students out of tracking programs.

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photographer Kim Levin, whose Bark and Smile books, calendars, journals, and stationery products are best-sellers, presents Growing Up. Kim Levin's documentary-style black-and-white photographs capture the pure essence of doghood in a way that dog lovers recognize and appreciate from the first instant they view her work. Like the most successful photojournalists, Levin's greatest gift is timing. Never posed or anthropomorphized, her subjects guide her process; she allows them to simply be themselves as she waits patiently for the perfect shot. Levin's photographs, accompanied by thoughtful text, have yielded a series of gift books and garnered her a loyal fan base. This addition to her collection honors the theme of growing up and the lifelong process of becoming oneself. Growing Up ventures beyond celebrating the canine species to explore the kinship and commonalities between dogs and humanity. The candid style of the photographs and economy of the text make the comparison elegant, endearing, and poignant without relying on saccharine cuteness or sentimentality. Growing Up is a distinctive gift for a variety of milestone occasions, particularly birthdays and graduation

Raising our sights : improving U.S. achievement in mathematics and science by John O'Neill( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite rising concerns about the mathematics and science achievement of U.S. students, a flood of evidence amassed over the past decade suggests that far too few students are receiving the high-quality education needed in these subjects either for careers or for basic citizenship. The Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) Panel on U.S. Achievement in Mathematics and Science was convened in May 1991 to examine three issues: (1) the continued low standing of U.S. students on international mathematics and science achievement tests; (2) the possible reasons for this low standing; and (3) the changes needed to improve U.S. mathematics and science achievement. The report is presented in three sections. Section 1 discusses the nature of the problem, indicating that low achievement is evident at all levels from primary through secondary school. Section 2 discusses the possible causes for low U.S. achievement, concluding that too few students receive sufficient instruction in mathematics and science in grades K-12 to achieve desired levels. The effects of tracking, the impact of underrepresented groups, outmoded theory and practice, and working conditions are also discussed. In section 3, the panel gives recommendations for improving U.S. achievement in mathematics and science in the areas of Curriculum, Standards, Assessment, Teacher Preparation, and Public Support. An executive summary states the panel's findings and enumerates its recommendations. Among the specific recommendations are the following: (1) all students should be required to take mathematics and science throughout their precollegiate education; (2) the development of international standards should be supported; (3) assessment programs should include "performance tasks"; and (4) emergency licensing of teachers in mathematics and science should be eliminated.
