"Teaching about Frederick Douglass" will stimulate conversation among liberal arts and education professionals as well as inform public school teachers about the life and times of Frederick Douglass. Tension exists at many institutions of higher education between liberal arts faculties who do not completely understand the function of education professors and school of education faculties who feel that there is a misunderstanding about what a teacher candidate needs to learn before entering the teaching profession. This book facilitates conversation, addressing the liberal arts professor's concern with content and the education professor's concern with pedagogy. By providing both current scholarship and lesson plans for elementary, middle school, and secondary school classes, this book serves as a vital resource for scholars on multicultural issues and provides classroom ideas for public school teachers.
Christmas is the most famous holiday of the year, and the word itself evokes images of Santa Claus, reindeer, snow, Christmas trees, egg nog and more. At the same time, it represents Christianity's most important event, the birth of the baby Jesus. Instantly, well known Christmas carols ring in your ears, pictures of the Nativity Scene become ubiquitous, or maybe you even picture nutcrackers or Scrooge and Tiny Tim. Regardless, Christmas is always the perfect time for holiday cheer, and reading classic Christmas stories.

Now she has a plan -- one involving a few small verses she has penned. For there are rebellious youths and some contention in the church that threatens to split it . . . Kate Douglas Wiggin (1856-1923) was author of such popular works as "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm" and "Penelope's English Experiences.
