    Today I moved to Alcatraz, a twelve-acre rock covered with cement, topped with bird turd and surrounded by water. I’m not the only kid who lives here. There are twenty-three other kids who live on the island because their dads work as guards or cooks or doctors or electricians for the prison, like my dad does. And then there are a ton of murderers, rapists, hit men, con men, stickup men, embezzlers, connivers, burglars, kidnappers and maybe even an innocent man or two, though I doubt it. The convicts we have are the kind other prisons don’t want. I never knew prisons could be picky, but I guess they can. You get to Alcatraz by being the worst of the worst. Unless you’re me. I came here because my mother said I had to.

    All Quiet on the Western Front A NOVEL By ERICH MARIA REMARQUE Translated by Arthur Wesley Wheen.

    Considered by many the greatest war novel of all time, All Quiet on the Western Front is Erich Maria Remarque’s masterpiece of the German experience during World War I.

    I am young, I am twenty years old; yet I know nothing of life but despair, death, fear, and fatuous superficiality cast over an abyss of sorrow. . . . This is the testament of Paul Bäumer, who enlists with his classmates in the German army during World War I. They become soldiers with youthful enthusiasm. But the world of duty, culture, and progress they had been taught breaks in pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches. Through years of vivid horror, Paul holds fast to a single vow: to fight against the principle of hate that meaninglessly pits young men of the same generation but different uniforms against one another . . . if only he can come out of the war alive.

  22. ANCIENT HISTORY TEACHER GUIDE FOR HS

    ANCIENT HISTORY TEACHER GUIDE FOR HS

    SKU: 6942

    $29.95

    Human history began when people gathered around rivers, began sowing seeds, settled into permanent shelters and chose collaboration over competition to create pockets of stability in an often harsh and threatening world. These tiny gatherings slowly grew and civilizations took root around the Yellow River in China, the Indus Valley, the storied Tigris and Euphrates rivers, and the Nile. This guide and the literature in this study tells the stories of those peoples–the ones who planted crops and built cities, developed technology, the arts, literature, and pushed human achievement to levels never seen before.

    This story is told through myth, literature, religious texts, archaeological evidence, and much more. Adaptations of Gilgamesh, the Iliad, the Ramayana, and Egyptian and Greek mythology pair with first hand accounts from people who witnessed historically significant events. Accurate fictional accounts bring to life figures like the Old Testament prophet Elijah, provide colorful depictions of life in Egypt and Greece and ancient Roman Brittania.

    This teacher guide will take you and your high school level student from the beginnings of civilization in Mesopotamia and Sumer, on to ancient Egypt, through the wanderings of the Jews and the splitting of the Israelites into the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah, to the Yellow River and the first Emperor of China, through the Indus Valley and its incredible flourishing, to the cradle of democracy, ancient Greece, and into the Roman Empire and the birth of Christianity. This guide delves deep into the beliefs and ideas that motivated our ancestors to create, to worship, to conquer and to love. Comparative studies between the religious systems of Egypt, India, China, Greece, Rome, Israel, and the development of Christianity provide essential perspective in understanding how each culture is directly shaped by what it takes to be true. Compare how creation narratives contribute to the understanding of human value, how myth both reflects and shapes history, how story ties all of humanity together.

    Hands-on activities add depth to the history while vocabulary lists, comprehension questions, research topics, and website links make this both an academically strong study and one that will engage your entire family in stimulating discussions. Our teacher guide provides the structure you want and the flexibility you need to successfully teach this complex time period.

    Animal Farm By GEORGE ORWELL

    George Orwell’s timeless fable—a parable for would-be liberators everywhere, glimpsed through the lens of our own history. As ferociously fresh as it was more than a half century ago, this remarkable allegory of a downtrodden society of overworked, mistreated animals, and their quest to create a paradise of progress, justice, and equality is one of the most scathing satires ever published. As we witness the rise and bloody fall of the revolutionary animals, we begin to recognize the seeds of totalitarianism in the most idealistic organization; and in our most charismatic leaders, the souls of our cruelest oppressors.
