Book Summary:

“An important book that rescues George B. McClellan’s military reputation.” —Chronicles Bold, brash, and full of ambition, George Brinton McClellan seemed destined for greatness when he assumed command of all the Union armies before he was 35. It was not to be. Ultimately deemed a failure on the battlefield by Abraham Lincoln, he was finally dismissed from command following the bloody battle of Antietam. To better understand this fascinating, however flawed, character, Ethan S. Rafuse considers the broad and complicated political climate of the earlier 19th Century. Rather than blaming McClellan for the Union’s military losses, Rafuse attempts to understand his political thinking as it affected his wartime strategy. As a result, Rafuse sheds light not only on McClellan’s conduct on the battlefields of 1861-62 but also on United States politics and culture in the years leading up to the Civil War. “Any historian seriously interested in the period will come away from the book with useful material and a better understanding of George B. McClellan.” —Journal of Southern History “Exhaustively researched and lucidly written, Rafuse has done an excellent job in giving us a different perspective on ‘Little Mac.’” —Civil War History “Rafuse’s thoughtful study of Little Mac shows just how enthralling this complex and flawed individual continues to be.” —Blue & Gray magazine

Book Summary:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The harrowing story of one of the great feats of exploration of all time and its complicated legacy—from the New York Times bestselling author of The River of Doubt and Destiny of the Republic For millennia the location of the Nile River’s headwaters was shrouded in mystery. In the 19th century, there was a frenzy of interest in ancient Egypt. At the same time, European powers sent off waves of explorations intended to map the unknown corners of the globe – and extend their colonial empires. Richard Burton and John Hanning Speke were sent by the Royal Geographical Society to claim the prize for England. Burton spoke twenty-nine languages, and was a decorated soldier. He was also mercurial, subtle, and an iconoclastic atheist. Speke was a young aristocrat and Army officer determined to make his mark, passionate about hunting, Burton’s opposite in temperament and beliefs. From the start the two men clashed. They would endure tremendous hardships, illness, and constant setbacks. Two years in, deep in the African interior, Burton became too sick to press on, but Speke did, and claimed he found the source in a great lake that he christened Lake Victoria. When they returned to England, Speke rushed to take credit, disparaging Burton. Burton disputed his claim, and Speke launched another expedition to Africa to prove it. The two became venomous enemies, with the public siding with the more charismatic Burton, to Speke’s great envy. The day before they were to publicly debate,Speke shot himself. Yet there was a third man on both expeditions, his name obscured by imperial annals, whose exploits were even more extraordinary. This was Sidi Mubarak Bombay, who was enslaved and shipped from his home village in East Africa to India. When the man who purchased him died, he made his way into the local Sultan’s army, and eventually traveled back to Africa, where he used his resourcefulness, linguistic prowess and raw courage to forge a living as a guide. Without Bombay and men like him, who led, carried, and protected the expedition, neither Englishman would have come close to the headwaters of the Nile, or perhaps even survived. In River of the Gods Candice Millard has written another peerless story of courage and adventure, set against the backdrop of the race to exploit Africa by the colonial powers.

Book Summary:

The rich history of Egypt has provided famous examples of board games played in antiquity. Each of these games provides evidence of contact between Egypt and its neighbours. From pre-dynastic rule to Arab and Ottoman invasions, Egypt's past is visible on game boards. This volume starts by introducing the reader to board games as well as instruments of chance and goes on to trace the history and distribution of ancient Egyptian games, looking particularly at how they show contact with other cultures and civilizations. Game practices, which were also part of Egyptian rituals and divination, travelled throughout the eastern Mediterranean. This book explores the role of Egypt in accepting and disseminating games during its long history. Over the last few years, the extent and the modes of contact have become better understood through museum and archival research projects as well as surveys of archaeological sites in Egypt and its surrounding regions. The results allow new insight into ancient Egypt's international relations and the role of board games research in understanding its extent. Written by three authors known internationally for their expertise on this topic, this will be the first volume on Ancient Egyptian games of its kind and a much-needed contribution to the field of both Egyptology and board games studies.

Book Summary:

Educators will find in this book an opportunity to examine the multiple, dynamic identities of the students they instruct and to consider the ways in which all teachers and students are shaped by their social and cultural settings. The volume is the first to examine theories of identity and elementary literacy practices by presenting data in a teacher-friendly format. The chapters highlight the influences of school and, to some extent, home contexts on students' identities as readers and writers, and give numerous implications for practice. McCarthey collected data from three sites in which teachers implemented writing workshop and literature-based instruction in grades 3-6. This book focuses on the students in these sites, who were from diverse cultural and social backgrounds. By providing information about the contexts in which students read and wrote, McCarthey demonstrates the power of the teacher-student relationship, the importance of the classroom curriculum, and the influence of parents and peers on students.

Home Schooling: During COVID-19 and Beyond By: Deborah Nichols Poulos Homeschooling has been a challenge for parents and grandparents who have worked so well to keep their children engaged in learning this pandemic year. Debbie speaks to respect and humor in this second book, which are so important for kids and parent/teachers. This book will be a good organizational tool for future homeschoolers and can be adapted to all teaching levels. -- Carole Plack, retired Administrator, Yolo County Office of Education; parent from Debbie Poulos’ 6th grade class, and grandparent ________________ Ms. Nichols Poulos was my son’s 5th grade teacher and, although a bright child, he had certain behavior issues which created challenges in the classroom. Debbie was the only teacher my son had throughout his schooling that I felt really understood him. She knew how to work with him to help him achieve his best potential; to feel cared about and accepted at school. Her skills, knowledge and abilities, along with her compassion for her students, made her an outstanding teacher. She was unforgettable to her students and their parents alike. Home Schooling: During COVID-19 and Beyond is a treasure trove of information parents (and grandparents!) can use to achieve the same success with their children. She has pulled from her first book, The Conscious Teacher, written primarily for teachers, what she thinks will be of the most help to parents. She has added some new information as well. The book’s sections on behavior standards and working with gifted students are especially helpful as a parent and now as I work with my grandkids as they school at home. The advice on how to teach the various subjects of reading, writing, math, social studies and computer skills is invaluable. I have greater confidence to help the kids learn at home, regardless of whether they are primarily learning remotely or in a classroom; this book gives you the tools to enrich their learning. -- Sue Woods, Mediator/Facilitator; Consensus and Collaboration Program, CSUS; BA (1975) Social Welfare, San Diego State University ______________ I'm a grandparent and not homeschooling on a regular basis, but I am often helping grandkids with schoolwork. So Home Schooling: During COVID-19 and Beyond is helpful even for having a successful single lesson. The parts about mutual respect and working WITH your student are very useful. The book is well organized, easy to understand and is full of specific routines for productive and rewarding homeschooling for teacher and student. Debbie taught my daughter, Vinci, in fourth grade and it was a wonderful year for her. She gained the necessary confidence to succeed academically in Debbie’s class that propelled her lively mind and scholastic achievements to this day. -- Dawn Daro, mother of Vinci Daro, B.A. and secondary teaching credential UC Berkeley, taught Junior High Richmond Unified School District _____________________ For parents new to teaching, as for anybody else, simple tools can help a lot. Deborah Nichols Poulos’ Home Schooling: During COVID-19 and Beyond supplies them in a well-organized format. For math, she gives you handy grids for adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing, plus simple tricks that aid intuition, such as the use of manipulative objects. To build up reading and spelling, she offers bonus devices for rewarding new learning without any mark-downs for errors. For writing, try her tips on building sentences and paragraphs. Positive feedback, no tears. Even without covid, this book would have been timely. -- Peter and Lin Lindert, parents of Nick Lindert, one of Deborah’s students You can contact Ms. Nichols Poulos at [email protected]

Book Summary:

Consuming Ancient Egypt examines the influence of Ancient Egypt on the everyday lives of contemporary people, of all ages, throughout the world. It looks at the Egypt tourist sees, Egypt in film and Egypt as the inspiration for opera. It asks why so many books are published each year on Egyptological subjects at all levels, from the austerely academic to the riotous celebrations of Egypt as a land of mystery, enchantment and fantasy. It then considers the ways in which Ancient Egypt interacts with the living world, in architecture, museum going, the acquisition of souvenirs and reproductions, design, and the perpetual appeal of the mummy. The significance of Egypt as an adjunct to (and frequently the subject of) marketing in the consumer society is examined. It reveals much about Egypt's immemorial appeal and the psychology of those who succumb to its magic.
