Wer legt fest, was ein Wort bedeutet?: Nick ist ein kluger Lausbub und hat viele Tricks auf Lager, um Lehrpersonen vom Aufgabengeben abzuhalten. Doch bei der neuen Lehrerin der fünften Klasse versagen sie. So muss Nick selber einen Vortrag darüber halten, warum das Wörterbuch wichtig ist fürs Leben. Diese Aufgabe beschäftigt ihn: Wer bestimmt denn, was ein Wort bedeuten soll? Nick kommt auf die Idee, ein eigenes Wort zu erfinden. Anstatt Kugelschreiber oder Bleistift sagt er in Zukunft nur noch "Frindel". In kürzester Zeit setzt sich das Wort im ganzen Schulhaus durch. Gerade auch, weil die Lehrerin Mrs. Granger so dagegen ist. Die ganze Geschichte kommt in der Lokalzeitung und wahrhaftig auch im Fernsehen. Immer mehr Menschen übernehmen das Wort, viel Geld lässt sich mit dessen Vermarktung verdienen. Nach zehn Jahren erhält es seinen Platz im offiziellen Wörterbuch. Da erhält Nick einen Brief von seiner ehemaligen Lehrerin, der eine grosse Überraschung beinhaltet! Eine witzige Schulgeschichte, die zum Nachdenken über die Bedeutung von Wörtern anregt und darüber, was Sprache eigentlich ist. Ab 10 Jahren, gut, Irene Beglinger-Flückiger.

Eine glänzende Erzählung lässt uns die Geschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts über seine Musik neu erleben. Alex Ross, Kritiker des »New Yorker«, bringt uns aus dem Wien und Graz am Vorabend des Ersten Weltkriegs ins Paris und Berlin der Goldenen Zwanzigerjahre, aus Hitler-Deutschland über Russland ins Amerika der Sechziger- und Siebzigerjahre. Er führt uns durch ein labyrinthisches Reich, von Jean Sibelius bis Lou Reed, von Gustav Mahler bis Björk. Und wir folgen dem Aufstieg der Massenkultur wie der Politik der Massen, den dramatischen Veränderungen durch neue Techniken genauso wie den Kriegen, Experimenten, Revolutionen und Aufständen der zurückliegenden 100 Jahre. »Eine unwiderstehliche Einladung, sich mit den großen Themen des 20. Jahrhunderts zu beschäftigen.« Fritz Stern

Help students improve their mastery of the English language and acquire the keys for understanding thousands of words by studying Greek and Latin word parts (prefixes, root words, and suffixes). This is one of the most complete, usable presentations of vocabulary development using word parts you will find. A knowledge of word parts gives students a head start on decoding words in reading and testing situations. This is the first book in the two-book series. Each of the well-developed lessons in this text includes: one to three word parts along with meanings and sample words, five vocabulary words that use the prefixes or root words, definitions and sample sentences for each of the five words, a practice exercise that lets students apply knowledge of the words and their meanings, and a one-page review worksheet for one or two lessons that presents more unique opportunities to work with the prefixes and root words and to see how they are combined with suffixes. In addition to the student pages, the teacher's information includes: an extensive listing of the most common prefixes, root words, and suffixes; their meanings and sample words; additional words for each lesson; and lesson ideas to supplement the word being studied.
