Powerful Teaching: Unleash the Science of Learning Audiobook

Powerful Teaching: Unleash the Science of Learning

Author: Patrice Bain, Pooja K. Agarwal Narrator: Coleen Marlo Release Date: October 2019

Powerful Teaching: Unleash the Science of Learning empowers educators to harness rigorous research on how students learn and unleash it in their classrooms. In this book, cognitive scientist Pooja K. Agarwal, PhD, and veteran K-12 teacher Patrice M. Bain, EdS, decipher cognitive science research and illustrate ways to successfully apply the science of learning in classrooms settings. This practical resource is filled with evidence-based strategies that are easily implemented in less than a minute-without additional prepping, grading, or funding! Research demonstrates that these powerful strategies raise student achievement by a letter grade or more; boost learning for diverse students, grade levels, and subject areas; and enhance students' higher order learning and transfer of knowledge beyond the classroom. Drawing on a fifteen-year scientist-teacher collaboration, more than 100 years of research on learning, and rich experiences from educators in K-12 and higher education, the authors present highly accessible step-by-step guidance on how to transform teaching with four essential strategies: Retrieval practice, spacing, interleaving, and feedback-driven metacognition.

From the Periphery: Real-Life Stories of Disability

Author: Pia Justesen Narrator: Cindy Kay, Coleen Marlo, Jonathan Todd Ross Release Date: October 2019

From the Periphery consists of more than thirty first-person narratives of everyday people who describe what it's like to be treated differently by society because of their disabilities. The stories are raw and painful, but also surprisingly funny and deeply inspiring. The oral histories describe anger, independence, bigotry, solidarity, and love-in the family, at school, and at the workplace. Inspired by the oral historians Studs Terkel and Svetlana Alexievich, From the Periphery will become a classic collection that increases understanding of the lived experiences of people with disabilities.

Thanksgiving in Paradise Audiobook

Thanksgiving in Paradise

Author: Kathi Daley Narrator: Coleen Marlo Release Date: October 2019

The shroud is lifted and truths too disturbing to believe are unveiled when an explosion at the town hall traps Tj under a pile of rubble as the walls of the building rain down around her. When the dust settles, Tj is left wondering if you can ever really know another person or if the armor you see is simply an illusion created to conceal the lies that are buried beneath. While Tj struggles with the duplicity of someone she'd previously held dear, she is also forced to deal with the fact that two popular residents are dead with four others in the hospital clinging to life. As the remaining town council members struggle to rebuild from the ashes of what was lost, Tj commits to helping Roy find the individual responsible for this horrific event while trying to juggle an important life decision.

About Us: Essays from the Disability Series of the New York Times Audiobook

About Us: Essays from the Disability Series of the New York Times

Author: Peter Catapano, Rosemarie Carland-Thomson Narrator: Coleen Marlo, Jonathan Todd Ross Release Date: September 2019

Boldly claiming a space in which people with disabilities can be seen and heard as they are-not as others perceive them-About Us captures the voices of a community that has for too long been stereotyped and misrepresented. Speaking not only to those with disabilities, but also to their families, coworkers, and support networks, the authors in About Us offer intimate stories of how they navigate a world not built for them. Since its 2016 debut, the popular New York Times 'Disability' column has transformed the national dialogue around disability. Now, echoing the refrain of the disability rights movement, 'Nothing about us without us,' this landmark collection gathers the most powerful essays from the series that speak to the fullness of human experience-stories about first romance, childhood shame and isolation, segregation, professional ambition, child-bearing and parenting, aging and beyond. Reflecting on the fraught conversations around disability-from the friend who says 'I don't think of you as disabled,' to the father who scolds his child with attention differences, 'Stop it stop it stop it what is wrong with you?'-the stories here reveal the range of responses, and the variety of consequences, to being labeled as 'disabled' by the broader public.

Grain by Grain: A Quest to Revive Ancient Wheat, Rural Jobs, and Healthy Food Audiobook

Grain by Grain: A Quest to Revive Ancient Wheat, Rural Jobs, and Healthy Food

Author: Bob Quinn, Liz Carlisle Narrator: Chris Sorensen, Coleen Marlo Release Date: September 2019

When Bob Quinn was a kid, a stranger at a county fair gave him a few kernels of an unusual grain. Little did he know, that grain would change his life. Years later, after finishing a PhD in plant biochemistry and returning to his family's farm in Montana, Bob started experimenting with organic wheat. In the beginning, his concern wasn't health or the environment; he just wanted to make a decent living and some chance encounters led him to organics. But as demand for organics grew, so too did Bob's experiments. He discovered that through time-tested practices like cover cropping and crop rotation, he could produce successful yields-without pesticides. Regenerative organic farming allowed him to grow fruits and vegetables in cold, dry Montana, providing a source of local produce to families in his hometown. He even started producing his own renewable energy. And he learned that the grain he first tasted at the fair was actually a type of ancient wheat, one that was proven to lower inflammation rather than worsening it, as modern wheat does. Ultimately, Bob's forays with organics turned into a multimillion dollar heirloom grain company, Kamut International.

The Boy Between Worlds: A Biography Audiobook

The Boy Between Worlds: A Biography

Author: Annejet Van Der Zijl Narrator: Coleen Marlo Release Date: August 2019

From the Amazon Charts bestselling author of An American Princess comes the true story of an unconventional family divided by war and prejudice during WWII. When they fell in love in 1928, Rika and Waldemar could not have been more different. She was a thirty-seven-year-old Dutch-born mother, estranged from her husband. He was her immigrant boarder, not yet twenty, and a wealthy Surinamese descendant of slaves. The child they have together, brown skinned and blue eyed, brings the couple great joy yet raises some eyebrows. Until the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands explodes their promising life. What unfolds is more than the astonishing story of a love that prevailed over convention. It’s also the quest of a young boy. Through the cruelty of World War II, he will fight for a connection between his father’s South American birthplace and his mother’s European traditions. Lost and displaced for much of his life, but with a legacy of resilience in his blood, he will struggle to find his place in the world. Moving deftly between personal experience and the devastating machinations of war, The Boy Between Worlds is an unforgettable journey of hope, love, and courage in the face of humanity’s darkest hour.

Baby Catcher: Chronicles of a Modern Midwife Audiobook

Baby Catcher: Chronicles of a Modern Midwife

Author: Peggy Vincent Narrator: Coleen Marlo Release Date: July 2019

An inspiring collection of birth stories by a charming midwife. Each time she knelt to 'catch' another wriggling baby-nearly three thousand times during her remarkable career-California midwife Peggy Vincent paid homage to the moment when pain bows to joy and the world makes way for one more. With every birth, she encounters another woman-turned-goddess: Catherine rides out her labor in a car careening down a mountain road. Sofia spends hers trying to keep her hyper doctor-father from burning down the house. Susannah gives birth so quietly that neither husband nor midwife notice until there's a baby in the room. More than a collection of birth stories, however, Baby Catcher is a provocative account of the difficulties that midwives face in the United States. With vivid portraits of courage, perseverance, and love, this is an impassioned call to rethink technological hospital births in favor of more individualized and profound experiences in which mothers and fathers take center stage in the timeless drama of birth.
