Climbing Jacob’s Ladder: Teaching & Counseling Orthodox Students

by Henry J. Roth

Climbing Jacob’s Ladder analyzes the way we understand, through the lens of religion, Orthodox students who are referred to a therapeutic day school for school-related problems. It supports the view that underlying conflicted religious feelings have been underestimated as a significant problem in this specialized population.
School problems are universal. Orthodox students with emotional and behavioral problems who are referred to a therapeutic day school frequently experience underlying conflicted feelings about their religion. This book provides psycho-educational profiles of Orthodox students with behavioral and emotional problems. Moreover, the book shows how conflicted religious feelings may cause or aggravate psychological problems that lead to unhealthy and inappropriate school behavior.
The spectrum of students’ conflicted feelings about religion is classified into five levels as a guide to selecting appropriate counseling interventions. Climbing Jacob’s Ladder discusses how to identify Orthodox students who have conflicted religious feelings in addition to school-related difficulties; how those conflicts affect their school performance, and how to work with these students and their parents in a school setting.

Another 150 Really Useful English Phrases: For intermediate students wishing to advance.

by Jenny Smith

Do you want to have fun while learning English?

Do you want to move from intermediate to advanced English?

This is the second book in the very popular â??150 Really Useful English Phrases’ series.

After years of teaching intermediate students who never seemed to improve I decided to find out what the problem was. Essentially, intermediate students get stuck because learning at this stage is a different type of learning than at the beginner stage. You have mastered the grammar and the basic vocabulary but most textbooks just carry on like nothing has changed. But what you need at the intermediate stage is not just more dry grammar and lists of words, but to be exposed to as much â??real’ English as possible. This will help you start understanding what people actually say and not just â??textbook’ English. It will also help you to naturally get a feel for the language.

Every new phrase in introduced in the real context of a short story or an article. So by having fun and reading something interesting you will be learning naturally rather than having to force yourself to study. It’s a simple fact that if you are having fun you will learn quicker and more easily.

This book is 100% in English with no help from your native language. This will help you to do what advanced speakers can do, and that is: think in English. This series of books is an excellent way to be exposed to â??real everyday English phrases’ but with the guidance of clear explanations and examples in simple English. Basically it uses simple language to introduce more complex phrases.

All of the phrases in this book are in common use and are the key to unlocking fluency. I have only included phrases which I have heard recently in conversation or on the radio or television. If it is in this book it is in everyday use.

So if you would like to move up from the intermediate level, please press the buy button on the top right hand corner of this page to get started today.

Common Core and the Truth (A Parent’s Journey into the Heart of the Core)

by Amy Skalicky

Common Core and the Truth

A Parent’s Journey into the Heart of the Core

Amy Skalicky

Forward by:

Kris Nielsen

Common Core is not your typical education reform idea; rather, it is an ugly, giant step towards the goal of federalized, corporate-run education that has been the underlying ambition of elitists in this country for well over 100 years.

Parents and educators cannot rely on what they read or hear from the creators of the Common Core for the truth. One must dig deeper, past the lies, to fully understand the implications of the Common Core agenda. The standards are not evidence-based, and the resulting curricula is useless. Bill Gates himself admitted it is an experiment. Right now, Common Core is harming our children, and left unchecked, will cause irreparable damage to our education system.

Knowledge is power. Armed with knowledge, parents and educators can stop Common Core. We can, and we must.

Embarrassing Habits And Stupid Things We All Do But Don’t Admit

by Arthur Joyce

101 Embarrassing Habits And Stupid Things We All Do But Don’t Admit

“Pee in the shower. They say men do this more, but many women claim to do this as well”

” Spend too much time online. We usually tell everyone we spent the day house cleaning when really we were online for about 9 hours straight.”

“Wish our friend would shut up when our favorite song comes on. We just want to hear our song, especially the one part right when they ask you a question and expect you to answer. No!

“Look in the toilet afterward. Sometimes we just want to know!”

Based on the ways of society and culture, people have a tendency of behaving in a certain way that is within the boundaries of societal norms. We all know what it socially acceptable and what isn’t. We all know what is considered normal and what isn’t. What we don’t always talk about is the fact that people often do things that are outside of these limits, just not in front of other people. Well, at least most of us don’t. Instead, we hide them behind closed doors. We sometimes mask our true human behaviors.
