Ob es jemals wieder so wird wie früher? Täglich stellt sich Alex diese Frage. Denn seit der Mond aus seiner Umlaufbahn verschoben wurde, geht es im New Yorker Alltag ums nackte Überleben. In den Fenstern der Hochhäuser brennt kein Licht mehr; kaputte Autos verstopfen die Kreuzungen; Plünderer ziehen durch die Straßen auf der Suche nach den letzten Lebensmitteln. New York ist eine Insel der Armen geworden - wer konnte, hat die Stadt längst verlassen. Verzweifelt kümmert sich Alex um seine Schwestern Briana und Julie. Doch eine Frage wagt er nicht zu stellen: Was, wenn ihre Eltern nicht nur vermisst sind, sondern Schlimmeres passiert ist?

Als eine Bekannte den Tierfreund Steve Jenkins fragte, ob er nicht ein Minischwein adoptieren wolle, wusste Steve, dass sein Lebensgefährte Derek nicht gerade begeistert sein würde. Dennoch willigte er ein, sich des süßen kleinen Ferkels anzunehmen. Eine Entscheidung, die Dereks und sein Leben für immer verändern sollte. Denn rein gar nichts an Esther war »Mini« – in drei Jahren wurde sie zu einem ausgewachsenen Hausschwein von 335 Kilo. Doch trotz aller Schwierigkeiten und einer Menge buchstäblicher »Schweinereien« liebten die beiden Esther: nur wie sollte es in ihrer Stadtwohnung mitten in Toronto mit der tierischen WG weitergehen? Wieder fassten sie einen weitreichenden Entschluss: per Crowdfunding finanzierten sie ein Gnadenhof-Projekt für ehemalige Nutztiere. Heute leben sie mit Esther und vielen anderen tierischen Freunden auf dem Land in Ontario im Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary.

Hands-on lessons can be fun and compelling, but when it comes to life science, they aren't always possible, practical, effective, or safe. Children can't follow a lion as it stalks a gazelle, visit the exotic kapok tree in a rain forest, or swim alongside the underwater life in a pond. But they can explore a whole world of animals, plants, and ecosystems through the pages of beautifully illustrated, science-themed picture books. Perfect Pairs, which marries fiction and nonfiction picture books focused on life science, helps educators think about and teach life science in a whole new way. Each of the twenty-two lessons in this book is built around a pair of books that introduces a critical life science concept and guides students through an inquiry-based investigative process to explore that idea--from animal/environment interactions to the role of structure in plant and animal survival, from inheritance of traits to variation of species. Each lesson starts with a "Wonder Statement" and comprises three stages. "Engaging Students" features a hands-on activity that captures student interest, uncovers current thinking, and generates vocabulary. The heart of the investigative process, "Exploring with Students," spotlights the paired books as the teacher reads aloud and helps students find and organize information into data tables. "Encouraging Students to Draw Conclusions" shows students how to review and analyze the information they have collected. Bringing high-quality science-themed picture books into the classroom engages a broad range of students, addresses the Performance Expectations outlined in the Next Generation Science Standards, and supports the goals of the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts. Even if you are science shy, Perfect Pairs can help you become a more confident teacher whose classroom buzzes with curious students eager to explore their natural world.

It is never too early to start comprehension instruction. In fact, reading begins with meaning making. Andie Cunningham and Ruth Shagoury designed a reading program for five- and six-year-olds based on this premise. Most of the students in Andie's Portland, Oregon, kindergarten class have little or no alphabet knowledge when they enter the classroom in the fall. English is a second—or third—language for many of the children in this low-income neighborhood. Through research-based principles, carefully structured routines, and innovative activities, even the youngest learners can develop comprehension skills from their first days in school. The children in Starting with Comprehension are grappling with school culture for the first time and learning to work with classmates who speak a variety of different languages. These emergent readers learn to present their understanding of what they read through writing, talk, movement, and art. Kindergartners and preschoolers are different from readers who know how to decode texts. Andie and Ruth show how comprehension skills can be nurtured and strengthened even before decoding begins. In this classroom, meaning making becomes part of community building as children link reading, thinking, and communicating.

Und noch schlimmer: Er befehligt eine Armee aus Verderbten, die ihm hörig sind.
