Book excerpt: Engaging With History in the Classroom: The Civil War is the second in a series of middle-grade U.S. history units that focus on what it means to be an American citizen, living in a democracy that expects as much from its citizens as it provides to them. In every lesson, students are asked to step into the world of 19th-century America, to hear about and to see what was happening, to read the words of real people and to imagine their hopes, dreams, and feelings. Students also learn to question the accounts left behind and to recognize different perspectives on events that divided the nation but resulted in progress in the path to liberty for all. Resources for teachers include a running script useful as a model for guiding conceptualization as well as extensive teacher notes with practical suggestion for personalizing activities. Grades 6-8

Download or read book Organized Secularism in the United States written by Ryan T. Cragun and published by Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co KG. This book was released on 2017-11-07 with total page 329 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: There has been a dramatic increase in the percentage of the US population that is not religious. However, there is, to date, very little research on the social movement that is organizing to serve the needs of and advocate for the nonreligious in the US. This is a book about the rise and structure of organized secularism in the United States. By organized secularism we mean the efforts of nonreligious individuals to build institutions, networks, and ultimately a movement that serves their interests in a predominantly religious society. Researchers from various fields address questions such as: What secularist organizations exist? Who are the members of these organizations? What kinds of organizations do they create? What functions do these organizations provide for their members? How do the secularist organizations of today compare to those of the past? And what is their likely impact on the future of secularism? For anyone trying to understand the rise of the nonreligious in the US, this book will provide valuable insights into organized efforts to normalize their worldview and advocate for their equal treatment in society.
Download or read book Taking Sides written by Brian Gallagher and published by The O'Brien Press. This book was released on 2012-10-15 with total page 186 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the Dublin of 1922 with Civil War about to break out, working class Annie Reilly is thrilled to win a scholarship to Eccles Street Convent School. A little frozen out by her old friends, yet not wholly accepted by all of her new classmates, she is pleased to be befriended by Susie O'Neill an easy-going girl from a much more comfortable background. Through Susie's brother, Annie meets Peter Scanlon, a neighbour of the O'Neill's and a pupil at Belvedere college. Having been radicalised by the execution of Kevin Barry, another Belvedere pupil, Peter becomes involved with the rebels who oppose the Treaty with Britain, and who are in conflict with the forces of the newly formed Irish Free State. As families and friends across the nation are forced to choose sides, and with Peter's conservative parents unaware of the dangerous role their son is adopting, Annie and Peter find their friendship coming under strain. Torn socially between her old friends and the exciting opportunities her new school presents, Annie is further confused when fighting breaks out on the streets of the city, with Irishmen now fighting other Irishmen. When Peter comes under suspicion from the police he asks Annie to cover for him. Reluctantly she provides him with an alibi, knowing that this also places her at risk of arrest - and with it the loss of her vitally-important scholarship. While all of the friends try to enjoy normal life - engaging in after-school classes, sports and concerts - there is no escaping the conflict that is rocking the country. Annie and Peter argue, but despite disagreeing with his secret activities as a messenger for the Die Hards, Annie keeps his secret. Annie's father, who drives a hackney that is often used by government officials, is targeted by the rebels, and Annie is kidnapped at gunpoint to force her father to co-operate in an assassination bid. Knowing that both sides have become increasingly brutal and ruthless, Peter is horrified when he learns of the danger that Annie now faces. Torn between his convictions and the debt that he owes to Annie, Peter has a stark choice to make. And when he risks everything for his friend, Annie too has to struggle with loyalty and the notion of informing on a friend, when other peoples' lives are in the balance.
Download or read book Annie's Civil War: The Girl Who Played Soldier written by Charlotte Joy Basner and published by . This book was released on 2014-06-12 with total page 378 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Of all the shocking facts about the Civil War, one of the more remarkable is the fact that a number of women fought as soldiers, disguised as men. Feisty and clever Annie Rumsey is one such "woman of valor" who challenges the unfair oppression of women in her day. Young Annie defies her family, dresses in a man's Union blue uniform, enlists and fights her way across the entire Northeast theater of war, including some of the bloodiest and most pivotal battles- 1st and Bull Run, the Peninsular Campaign and 2nd Bull Run. And, in taking on the identity of a male soldier, she risks not only her life and safety; but also her female identity... Annie matures surrounded by nature and old world traditions in New York's rugged Neversink Valley. As a naturally gangly and athletic young girl, Annie eagerly shoulders responsibilities of both man and woman to help her family on their struggling farm. And when she insists on winning shooting competitions and hiking up her long skirts to ride astride, she just doesn't fit her day's standards of a woman as a passive and fluffy ornament. Relatives and community begin to single Annie out and bully her as a freak. Even though Annie craves a happy future like other girls, she can't pretend to be stupid or weak. In her late teens, she grows big and strong enough to fight her abusers; and a series of violent confrontations send her fleeing from her home. Then, disguised as a man, Annie enlists in the Union Army determined to use her unique talents as a warrior to finally do something with her life. At the start of the War, America is in crisis, beginning with a mob attack on unarmed Union recruits in Baltimore. And the Union Army needs an adaptable and wily recruit like "Andrew" who's equally adept with horses, sharpshooting and her father's hunting knife. In her male persona, Annie takes risks to protect her men from ambush; and rescues civilians at the infamous counterattack at Bull Run. And she quickly rises through the ranks with no one guessing her Union blue tunic hides bound breasts and heart of a maturing young woman. While Annie can anticipate many more battles, she despairs of love, since she can't imagine any man ever embracing Sergeant "Andrew," her valiant, independent side. But then Tien Dorsey, a brooding and untamed "breed" Indian scout for the Army comes from the West to supply horses to their Virginia encampment. Strong, resourceful and philosophical, Dorsey is an "accidental" warrior still haunted by childhood memories of the Army's atrocities against his people. And, like Annie, Tien feels driven to fight for freedom and never lose. In winter, Dorsey finds himself under young Sgt. "Andrew's" command, and the two bunk in a crude shelter surrounded by the menace of the enemy, while preparing for campaigns that may take their lives. As unlikely friends, the two "men," Annie and Dorsey, once again learn to trust and to care. They start conquering personal demons- yet neither dares express what appear to be forbidden desires. The country's bloodiest war abruptly pulls the two apart- Tien fighting in the notorious battle of Chancellorsville, and Annie fighting through a string of battles in the Southern states, and riding as a Union spy. Today, at least in theory, women can have it all. But, in Annie's world of the Civil War United States, death might be the only doorway to rebirth. In the mysterious city of Old New Orleans, as the War Between the States rushes toward conclusion, the shroud of secrecy dramatically lifts on Annie's sexual identity. And, in this fictional novel based in part on true stories of women soldiers in the Civil War, the secrets revealed about Sgt. "Andrew" will either open the way to love and freedom, or may bring the ultimate destruction.

Download or read book Families on the Edge written by Elizabeth Carpenter-Song and published by MIT Press. This book was released on 2023-08-15 with total page 189 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An intimate account of rural New England families living on the edge of homelessness, as well as the practices and policies of care that fail them. Families on the Edge is an ethnographic portrait of families in rural and small-town New England who are often undercut by the very systems that are set up to help them. In this book, author and medical anthropologist Elizabeth Carpenter-Song draws on a decade of ethnographic research to chart the struggles of a cohort of families she met in a Vermont family shelter in 2009, as they contend with housing insecurity, mental illness, and substance use. Few other works have attempted to take such a long-term view of how vulnerability to homelessness unfolds over time or to engage so fully with existing scholarship in the fields of anthropology and health services. Research on homelessness in the United States has been overwhelmingly conducted in urban settings, so much less is known about its trajectory in rural areas and small towns. Carpenter-Song’s book identifies how specific aspects of rural New England—including scarce affordable housing stock, extremely limited transportation, and cultural expectations of self-reliance—come together to thwart opportunities for families despite their continual striving to “make it” in this environment. Carpenter-Song shines a light on the many high-stakes consequences that occur when systems of care fail and offers a way forward for clinicians, health researchers, and policymakers seeking practical solutions.
Download or read book Unnatural States written by Peter Ian Lomas and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-09-08 with total page 356 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Unnatural States is a radical critique of international theory, in particular, of the assumption of state agency—that states act in the world in their own right. Peter Lomas argues that since the universal states system is inequitable and rigid, and not all states are democracies anyway, this assumption is unreal, and to adopt it means reinforcing an unjust status quo. Looking at the concepts of state, nation, and agency, Lomas sees populations struggling to find an agreed model of the state, owing to inherited material differences; and unsurprisingly, among theorists of the nation, only controversy and a great confusion of terms. Meanwhile, the functional incarnations of the state agent are caricatures: the mandarin state, the lawyer state, the landlord state, the heir-to-history state, and the patriot state. Yet recent developments in international theory (constructivism, scientific realism, postmodernism) sacrifice state agency only at the price of an unhelpful abstraction. The states system is dysfunctional and obsolete, Lomas contends, and international theory must be recast, with morality as central, to inspire and to guide historic change. He focuses in his conclusion on prescriptions for change, led by four moral concerns: human rights, weapons of mass destruction, relations between rich and poor societies, and the environment. "I begin this book," writes Lomas, "with the commonest commonplace of international theory, to expose it as a meaningless cliche. In the masterly hands of Hobbes, it was elaborated into a shock formula for organized society, a reading of history as civilization's failure. Kant sought to rescue morality from Hobbes and create the structures of modernity, but Kant's influence is coming to an end. In the Cold War, politicians disagreeing over another philosopher almost brought the world to an end. Hence the challenges of our time. These are primary and profound. Philosophers have done much to define the modern world. The point of international theory is to change it."
Download or read book Remembering Annie Hall written by Jonathan Ellis and published by Bloomsbury Publishing USA. This book was released on 2023-08-24 with total page 273 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Since its release, Annie Hall has established itself as a key film for Woody Allen's career and the history of romantic comedy more generally. At the 1978 Academy Awards, it won Oscars for Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay, and Best Actress and is regularly cited as one of the greatest film comedies ever released, credited with influencing directors such as Wes Anderson, Noah Baumbach, Richard Linklater, Greta Gerwig and Desiree Akhavan. This lively collection brings a new ethical and philosophical perspective to bear on Allen's work quite different from previous generations of scholars. At the same time as exploring the film's continuing influence on contemporary cinema, this book's contributors engage explicitly and implicitly with ongoing debates about Allen's cinematic output following the renewal of accusations against Allen by his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow in 2014 and 2018. The book is alive to debates within film studies about the limits of auteur theory and the role of the spectator.

Download or read book Extensions of Logic Programming written by Peter Schroeder-Heister and published by Springer Science & Business Media. This book was released on 1991-02-12 with total page 376 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This volume contains finalized versions of papers presented at an international workshop on extensions of logic programming, held at the Seminar for Natural Language Systems at the University of Tübingen in December 1989. Several recent extensions of definite Horn clause programming, especially those with a proof-theoretic background, have much in common. One common thread is a new emphasis on hypothetical reasoning, which is typically inspired by Gentzen-style sequent or natural deduction systems. This is not only of theoretical significance, but also bears upon computational issues. It was one purpose of the workshop to bring some of these recent developments together. The volume covers topics such as the languages Lambda-Prolog, N-Prolog, and GCLA, the relationship between logic programming and functional programming, and the relationship between extensions of logic programming and automated theorem proving. It contains the results of the first conference concentrating on proof-theoretic approaches to logic programming.
Download or read book Annie John written by Jamaica Kincaid and published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux. This book was released on 1997-06-30 with total page 160 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Annie John is a haunting and provocative story of a young girl growing up on the island of Antigua. A classic coming-of-age story in the tradition of The Catcher in the Rye and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Kincaid's novel focuses on a universal, tragic, and often comic theme: the loss of childhood. Annie's voice—urgent, demanding to be heard—is one that will not soon be forgotten by readers. An adored only child, Annie has until recently lived an idyllic life. She is inseparable from her beautiful mother, a powerful presence, who is the very center of the little girl's existence. Loved and cherished, Annie grows and thrives within her mother's benign shadow. Looking back on her childhood, she reflects, "It was in such a paradise that I lived." When she turns twelve, however, Annie's life changes, in ways that are often mysterious to her. She begins to question the cultural assumptions of her island world; at school she instinctively rebels against authority; and most frighteningly, her mother, seeing Annie as a "young lady," ceases to be the source of unconditional adoration and takes on the new and unfamiliar guise of adversary. At the end of her school years, Annie decides to leave Antigua and her family, but not without a measure of sorrow, especially for the mother she once knew and never ceases to mourn. "For I could not be sure," she reflects, "whether for the rest of my life I would be able to tell when it was really my mother and when it was really her shadow standing between me and the rest of the world."
