The US Census Bureau estimates that over 8 million children enroll in nursery school or kindergarten every year. The educational success of these children depends largely on their knowledge of the alphabet, numbers, colors, and opposites. I Like to Learn Numbers: Counting Chameleon teaches children these fundamental skills in a fun, playful, yet very effective way. This whimsically illustrated book will help children learn their numbers with rich and colorful depictions of animals.
The adventures of Krazy Eye and his sister Screecher. A Kindergarten to Grade 2 book that parents can read out loud and kids can color in.
This work captures the voices of TFA novices who offer candid accounts of their experiences in Becoming Teach For America Teachers. Previously unanswered questions are addressed: Why do recent college graduates apply to Teach For America? How are they recruited, trained, and hired? How do they learn the culture (s) of the community, schools, grade level, curriculum, and children they teach? Is there a "culture" of the TFA organization? What recommendations do they offer to TFA donors, policy-makers, future corps members and the public? Woven into this book, are perspectives from mentors who worked alongside TFAers, administrators who hired them, corporate C.E.O.'s who supported them, and policies (both local and national) that privileged TFA over non-TFA teachers. Finally, a compelling series of eyewitness narratives introduces each chapter's theme, documented from the author's own, "Notes from the Field." These accounts offer rich, descriptive vignettes that present the challenges TFAers faced, as they occurred. Schools reflect the multitiered and often non-level playing field that comprises America's educational landscape. Learning on Other People's Kids: Becoming a Teach For America Teacher provides readers a glimpse into the corps member experience in a rare ethnographic account.

This book presents the experiences and ideas of a leading black educator, interweaving his autobiography with the stories of contemporary street gang members and former members. Their own words illustrate Gentry's thesis that even the hardest gang members want to get an education and want to find The Hope Factor. In addition, the book offers an approach for dealing with the greatest challenges facing the nation today: urban violence and the miseducation of minority youth.
Gentry begins by outlining his major themes and then examines American urban education, using his own personal history as well as his more than 25 years of experience in the field. He then provides exemplary case studies and proposes practical solutions. The book is addressed to future teachers and administrators as well as to those now in urban schools, and to all concerned with the state of urban and minority education.
