    Become a better public speaker by studying—and listening to—six great American speeches from the 20th century with this book and CD set. More an in-depth analysis of particular speeches than a "how to" book, each chapter focuses on a particular speech in the context of a theme. Each chapter presents the speech in "bite sized" pieces, followed by an analysis of the techniques used to persuade and move the audience. Biographical information about each speaker and historical background information are also given to help place the speech in context. You can listen to the speeches as you study them, as two audio CDs are included, featuring all six of the speeches in their entirety. The six speeches studied are Ronald Reagan's Space Shuttle Challenger Address, Edward M. Kennedy's "Faith and Country, Tolerance and Truth in America", Douglas MacArthur's Thayer Award Acceptance Address, John F. Kennedy's Inaugural Address, Barbara Jordan's Statement on the Articles of Impeachment, and Mary Fisher's 1992 Republican National Convention Address. An appendix includes transcripts of the speeches in their entirety, a glossary, and list of references. 209 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    Originally developed as a software package, the success of this simple, phonetically-based program encouraged the publication of The Reading Lesson book. The Reading Lesson is broken into 20 lessons, intended to be done side-by-side with a parent or teacher. A correlating Reading Lesson CD-ROM is available from the publisher, which features animations, audio and simple games. However, the book can be used on its own, and at this time the book is the only component we are offering.

    Lessons introduce and use specific letters and sounds. The entire alphabet is not taught at the beginning, nor is it taught in order. Letters and sounds are introduced in groups which can be used to read the corresponding simple stories. For example, Lesson One introduces c, o, s, a and t while Lesson Two features m, d and r. Each lesson contains information for the parent or teacher, words, exercises and short stories. The pacing of the lessons will depend on the child's age, and a suggested number of pages per day is provided. The authors suggest spending no more than 15 minutes on a lesson each day, so as to not exceed the child's attention span. Each page is written to both student and teacher, with instructions in small print at the top. Where letters, words, or sentences are given, small bars underneath the letters remind the reader to focus on one sound at a time, as they point at the letter (these bars disappear towards the end of the book). Gradually (with the parent modeling) the student will start to blend the sounds and read the words. The book teaches most phonetic sounds and blends; however, there are several that might be taught specificially in another course that are designated as "sight words" in this course. Only lowercase letters are taught until the 11th lesson, when several capital letters that look similar to their lowercase counterparts are introduced ('I' is also introduced here, with an explanation on its slightly different look). Other topics, such as the suffix "-ing",and apostrophes are also introduced as they are necessary, but are not covered in a great amount of depth. The emphasis here is to give the child the skills to decode and read words, so that they will "graduate" from the book with a 2nd-grade reading level. With the straightforward presentation, simple effective activities and reinforcement, this book makes the task do-able for student and teacher. Please note that there are several other companion products that are available from the publisher. To preview these, please check out www.readinglesson.com. - Jess

    Does your child struggle with retaining math facts or forget how to perform basic math computations? Do they need to use math manipulatives for basic math facts, even into their middle school years? With the majority of math curricula written for the left-brain learners who easily understand the drill-based math facts taught through black and white images, what is a parent to do with a child who learns differently and is not able to grasp math as traditionally taught? This DVD may provide the key to defeating frustration and overcoming forgetfulness! Beginning with a brief overview of right and left-brain learning as it applies to mathematics, Dianne Craft shares effective strategies to help struggling learners retain math facts and processes. While recommendations for math curricula workbooks are offered, these techniques would work with most math programs that you are currently using-with just a bit of tweaking! Strategies to teach addition/subtraction, multiplication/division, Algebra (order of operations), fractions and multiplication by 3 digits are included. This totally different teaching method will retrain the “non-math” brain into a math sponge, giving your child confidence and skills for math success! While not part of the Right Brained Math Series from Child First Publications, this DVD could be a vital forerunner to that series, providing parents and teachers a foundational understanding of right brain leaners and their distinctive needs. Part of the “Struggling Learner Seminar” series. DVD runs approximately 40 minutes. ~ Deanne

    Subtitled "Beginning Latin for Homeschoolers and Self-Taught Students of Any Age," I could see this book serving as a great introduction to Latin for the family who is not sure they want to jump right into a full-fledged Latin course. Of course, it would be just as useful for an older student (or even Mom and Dad), if they have never studied Latin but want to learn it on their own. The course was designed out of necessity by author William E. Linney, after he was asked by a relative to teach Latin to her children. He set out looking for a course that would not require a Latin teacher, was self-paced, self explanatory, offered lots of practice exercises, was non-threatening, and inexpensive. When he couldn't find a course that suited his needs, he designed this one. The book contains 134 lessons, which are short (usually less than a page in length), un-fluffy, and incremental in progression. Lessons strike a nice balance between introducing new vocabulary, explaining simple grammatical concepts, and memorization of noun and verb forms. No lesson covers all of these tasks, but instead focuses on one objective and covers it well. Lessons that introduce new Latin vocabulary feature a new Latin word, its English meaning, and sometimes a pronunciation tip. This is usually followed by about ten sentences to translate. Lessons on grammar are also bite-sized, and different forms and cases are introduced gradually. As they are introduced, they are added to a chart, and students will translate sentences that use the forms and cases that they have learned. As charts are filled with endings or forms, students may be asked to memorize them, to aid in future lessons. Just for fun, "Latin Expressions" are scattered throughout the book. In each one, the author takes a common Latin phrase like "caveat emptor," or "etc." and explains the Latin history behind each phrase. Don't underestimate how these little "sparks" of knowledge whet your appetite to learn more! By the end of the book, students will have stockpiled basic vocabulary of around 100 words, be comfortable translating simple sentences in Latin, and have a grasp of basic Latin grammar.

    There are a couple of aspects of this course worth noting. First of all, because the book is more of a text than a worktext it is not designed to be consumable. For translation purposes, the author recommends translating the sentences in a separate notebook. If extra practice is desired, you may wish to translate the sentences back to the form given in the lesson. Secondly, while we all realize that pronunciation is very difficult to teach "out of a book", the author has considered this, and has come up with an ingenious solution. He has provided MP3 audio files free of charge on his website, which can be downloaded and used with the lessons. As an added bonus, you can choose from either classical pronunciation or ecclesiastical pronunciation. Audio commentary on the lessons and a host of other helpful resources is also included on the website. Lastly, this course would be excellent prep for an older student who will be studying Latin in high school or college who hasn't had the benefit of laying a basic Latin foundation earlier in life. Upon completion of this book, I think students would be more ready to tackle Lingua Latina, Oxford University Latin, Henle Latin, or Cambridge Latin, than if they were starting off cold. Latina Christiana I or other complete courses designed for younger students could also be considered reasonable continuations, although there would be much more overlap/review between courses. This is a terrific way to get started in Latin and I am glad that the author did not find what he was looking for to teach Latin, because he has certainly written a course that fulfills all of his goals! – Jess

    This book by Michael Driscoll introduces young students to poetry and famous poets in a way they will find interesting and fun. The first part of the book describes the various types of poetry like nursery rhymes, villanelle, limerick, narrative verse, ballad, sonnet, free verse, and more. Each type of poem is described quickly and clearly, and then the book contains famous examples of that type of poem. Kids can either read the poems themselves, or play the accompanying CD when prompted. The audio CD includes all the poems in the book read alternately by a man and a woman with pleasant voices. Colorful boxes tell readers when to play a track on the CD, as well as sharing extra information about the poems or their authors. "Words for the Wise" boxes are included on each page, defining words in the poems that children may not be familiar with. "If You're a Poet, You Should Know It" boxes are also included throughout the book, with vocabulary words related to poetry defined (like stanza, alliteration, etc.). After all the types of poetry are introduced, explained, and exampled, the second half of the book is dedicated to famous poets. A quick biography of each poet is included and then excerpts from that person's poetry are shared. These excerpts (sometimes full poems) are also included on the CD. Text boxes on the pages give a summary of the poems and explain confusing parts. Fun, colorful, little drawings accompany these poems (as well as those earlier in the book) and add to the charm of the book. Homer, Shakespeare, Blake, Dickinson, Kipling, Sandburg, Heaney, Angelou, and many more are included in this section of the book. Overall, 64 famous poems are included in the book (and on the CD). With the easy-to-understand explanations and numerous examples, young students will be grasping and enjoying poetry in no time. Book includes a listing of all 64 tracks on the CD and measures 10.25" x 10.25". 96 pages, hc. ~ Rachel
