By Luke Zarzecki, Whitney Young and Morgan DiVittorio, Riverside Brookfield With the college admissions process in full swing, teens are stressing about where to apply and whether they’ll be accepted into the school of their dreams. With a limited amount of spots, colleges have to make tough decisions about which students to accept. But do some applicants have better chances than others? A common admissions rumor is that some colleges give the upper hand to legacies, or applicants who are related to alumni or current students. At Tulane University in New Orleans, the rumor is true. Being a legacy is a positive for an applicant and can help them be accepted.

The Princess and the Warrior. But as the warrior begins to win, the enemy hatches a plan —tell the princess her love has died, sending her into an endless sleep.

Atheneum Books for Young Readers, The text is structured as tales within tales, each layer contributing to the whole like distinct threads in a hand-woven carpet. Several font colors are used to help young readers separate each story, while matching colors within the illustrations blend the stories into a harmonious whole. The author-illustrator’s unique visual style creates a strong sense of place, embedding the text within its cultural context of Morocco. Reminiscent of stories from The Thousand and One Nights, Evan Turk weaves a new, powerful multilayered story that calls attention to the continuing importance of storytellers in Moroccan culture and to the value of a strong oral culture in general.
It reveals the power of community and the role of shared stories in unifying a people.

Comprehension Question Fans Lately, I’ve received a few questions about my question fans I used in one of my lessons I wrote about last year. I whipped up this question fan using questions from my persuasive writing unit. You can read the blog post from last year by clicking HERE. I really enjoyed using the question fans for reading comprehension – they were handy, I had multiple questions to choose from, and more importantly, the students really liked them.
Now that I’m finally wrapping my mind around getting back into back-to-school mode I apologize to those of you who are already back , I decided to make up a larger question fan resource. I used questions that I use for the reading comprehension strategies over questions so that I could make up 7 different fans with the resource. I can use these fans when studying the different strategies in isolation, or can pick and choose from the questions on different fans when doing a review or during a novel study.
I made up a few packages so I can add these to my students’ guided reading buckets. Each guided reading group has a comprehension strategy they focus on, so these question fans will help them during group discussions. I can also pass them out for partner discussions after independent reading, or put at a literacy center. I made an extra set with all the questions and attached them together with a binder clip circle or whatever those rings are called. I can hook the whole set on a wall by my desk, and I can choose from the questions for reading response questions I can put it under the document camera and project it over the board.

November 19, Larry Heider Summer George Lucas had welded mythological structure, pioneering special effects, and a spectacular production design to create a cinematic phenomenon that redefined how studios selected and marketed big-budget spectacles. Movies would never be the same again. Originally, the show was intended to keep the property viable and licensed merchandise moving off shelves until the inevitable sequel.
Pat and I spent the entire day with Lucas. He took out a legal pad and asked how many minutes were in a TV special. He wrote down numbers from one to

African slaves existed long before they saw the first white man. Born Again Southern Pride Just as slaves of all color did. History is replete with tales of slavery of every nation over all manner of others. One of the greatest civilizations, Roman, was based almost entirely on slavery. As were so many others. Joe samo Yes slaves of all color existed around the world, but today only black people can not forget what they never knew.
We are never going to except each other without question. We will always be divided. All of this is simply human nature, nothing more. It has always been that way, and will always be that way. Never the less, we will remain divided, and the hate will continue, so find a way to live with it!!!
