Fortune's bones : the manumission requiem by Marilyn Nelson( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2,752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fortune was a slave who lived in Waterbury, Conn., in the late 1700s. He was married and the father of 4 children. When Fortune died in 1798, his master, Dr. Porter, preserved his skeleton to further the study of anatomy. Now the skeleton is in the Mattatuck Museum where it is still being studied. There is a skeleton on display in the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury, Connecticut. It has been in the town for over 200 years. Over time, the bones became the subject of stories and speculation in Waterbury. In 1996 a group of community-based volunteers, working in collaboration with the museum staff, discovered that the bones were those of a slave named Fortune who had been owned by a local doctor. After Fortune's death, the doctor dissected the body, rendered the bones, and assembled the skeleton. A great deal is still not known about Fortune, but it is known that he was baptized, was married, and had four children. He died at about the age of 60, sometime after 1797

What do you stand for? : a kid's guide to building character by Barbara A Lewis( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses on encouraging children to see the value in developing values, not because of any current fashion or political trend, but because honesty, empathy, integrity, and other core values are necessary to form the confident and capable good neighbors, teachers, businesspeople, politicians, and clergy of tomorrow. The book assumes that each individual wants to be a person of good character. It teaches children how to recognize a situation or choice, weigh the options, think it through, and make a decision that is right for them and those around them. Divided into 28 chapters, each focusing on a value like integrity, respect, citizenship, honesty, leadership, and responsibility, the book challenges readers to think about positive character traits, encouraging them to understand themselves and their role in the world around them. Each chapter poses character dilemmas to spark discussion and debate, and helps children explore what they stand for--with suggested activities to try at school, at home, and in their community. The book also guides young readers to a wide array of additional resources such as related books, organizations, programs, and Web sites. Contains reproducible pages. (Bt)

7 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When educators (and parents) think about gifted kids, they usually focus on their intellectual needs. But gifted kids are much more than test scores and grades. In their second book together, Jim Delisle and Judy Galbraith explain what giftedness means, how gifted kids are identified, and how we might improve the identification process. Then they take a close-up look at gifted kids from the inside out-their social and emotional needs. Topics include self-image and self-esteem, perfectionism, multipotential, depression, feelings of "differentness," and stress. The authors suggest ways to help gifted underachievers and those who are bored in school, and ways to encourage healthy relationships with friends, family and other adults. The final chapter explains how teachers can make it safe to be smart by creating the gifted-friendly classroom. Includes first-person stories, easy-to-use strategies, survey results, activities, reproducibles, and up-to-date research and resources
