    Technology. For many of us, this modest word produces a knot in our stomach. Technology can be a wonderful asset, and represents the wave of the future; yet, how often do we look around and see individuals consumed by the technology in their hands while paying no attention to the person next to them? To be honest, technology presents a unique challenge not only to individuals but also to us as a society as we learn to balance technology in our lives.

    If you are looking for balance in technology use in your home, these resources from popular homeschool speaker Todd Wilson may tip the scales in your favor. Beginning with the booklet, written primarily to Dads (with much application to Mom), Todd lays a foundational understanding of the allure and deceptive nature of technology and it's impact on his own family; explains the unique impact technology has on males and females; and uses supportive scripture to form a battle plan to tame the beast. While this practical, easily digested, 47 page Booklet gives parents the necessary tools to tame the techno-beast, Todd also offers a 100+ page Student Workbook, designed to take young people on a path of self-discovery of their relationship with the Techno-Beast. One thing I really appreciated about the student workbook is how he walks students logically through setting a technology standard for themselves rather than espousing the "evils" of technology. Beginning with a short history lesson to introduce the first computer game (Pong, for those too young to remember!), which leads to an overview of the rapid technology explosion, the Student Workbook then tackles life in a virtual world. A virtual world that can be all-encompassing and provide a snare that is different for males and females. Students then explore the Biblical application, battle plans for killing the beast and development of personal standards for video games, cell phones, Facebook and internet usage. Each workbook section ends with open-ended questions designed to help young people evaluate their views of technology and the impact it has on their lives. A sampling of the questions: "How do you respond when you see a new gadget?" Does your virtual world seem easier, more exciting, or more relational than your real world at home, school or work? Explain." Weekly Technology Logs are also included for self-evaluation. Parents and young people alike will be challenged to think beyond society's norm as they evaluate the Techno-Beast in their home. Homeschool parents may reproduce pages for use within a single classroom. sc. ~ Deanne

      You can kill two birds with one stone with these efficient little “tools” for reading responses. First of all, they encourage the reading of nonfiction. Secondly, they provide an effective means for leading young students through the various aspects of responding to nonfiction. Reproducible and easy to use, each graphic organizer relates to a specific book (40 of them). Books are varied as to content, and there are 4-8 books at each of the Fauntas and Pinnell levels K through Q. With each trifold, the student is guided through several reading strategies (i.e. preview, find the main idea, identify key details, compare and contrast, analyze cause and effect, question, determine importance, use context clues, make inferences, visualize, identify author’s purpose, evaluate, synthesize, and summarize) always ending with a requested response. Each tri-fold concludes with suggestions for Extend Your Learning ideas. Providing a systematic introduction to the world of nonfiction, these trifolds are also an excellent way to cover basic reading strategies. 96 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    First published in 1967, this book by S.E. Hinton emerged as a popular book for older teenagers and young adults and has remained popular for 40 years. It tells the story of teenagers growing up in a dangerous city, with two warring groups of boys: the greasers and the Socs (richer society kids). Ponyboy, the main character, is a teenage greaser who lives with his older brothers after his parents' deaths. He's younger than the rest of the gang, but they accept and protect him. When a friend accidentally kills a Soc while protecting Ponyboy, the two try to outrun the revenge and violence that follows them. It's a heartbreaking but moving story about two different gangs and the pain they cause each other. Please note: violence, teenage smoking, and general "street life" themes are present throughout the story. 180 pgs, plus an an interview with the author and discussion questions, pb.

    If you want to know what World War II in Europe looked like from an infantryman's point of view, follow William F. (Mac) McMurdie from the induction process in Pasadena, CA, in April 1943 to his safe return home in February 1946. McMurdie didn't write the book until 1999, at age 74. But his mother had kept every letter that he sent home, and he had written notes about his experiences just after the war. Also, he realized that many of the men who served in WWII were beginning to die off. Many of the books on the subject were big-picture books, and friends encouraged him to write a book based on the experiences of the common soldier.

    This he does very well. It is no problem imagining yourself being in the same situations that McMurdie found himself in. He was a member of the 394th Regiment of the 99th Infantry Division, which, among other things, took part in the Battle of the Bulge. He covers all facets of his experience: the discomfort of being wet and cold from exposure to the rain and snow, hunger when no food was available for a couple of days, the disorientation of having shells falling around you, the anguish of seeing a close friend killed in battle, with the realization that it could just as easily have been him who died. McMurdie is a from a Christian family who was continually praying for his safety, and he has since served for 50 years in Christian ministry, so references to God's protection are common. So are excepts from his letters home, and he wrote home often, sometimes daily.

    It is apparent that McMurdie is thankful to God for bringing him through the war safely, and that he is loves his country and its founding principles. In this book he wants to pass these thoughts and feelings on to future generations. Pb, approx 200 pgs.
