Still, some have argued that narrative has a special appeal to Americans—perhaps because they see their nation as a kind of ongoing narrative.

How does one keep classic books alive for young people today and teach them that literature is instructional and delightful? How does the teacher foster a classroom environment that encourages student participation and promotes enjoyment so that teenagers learn to appreciate literary study? More specifically, how can teachers cover centuries of American literature with students who dont appreciate why they should read material written centuries ago about people and issues that appear to be irrelevant to life today in a language that seems esoteric? The author of this series of high school teaching guides addresses these issues. How to Teach American Literature: A Practical Teaching Guide provides a detailed resource for teachers or anyone interested in an in-depth study of the subject. This second book in the series covers American literature from the Puritan era to contemporary works. Included are suggestions for cultivating a love for literature, teaching techniques, detailed analyses of each work, questions for review and test questions with suggested responses, essay topics, audiovisual aids, classroom handouts, and recommended books that enhance teaching. The author emphasizes two basic reasons for teaching literature: it is instructional and delightful. This book provides a comprehensive methodology for teaching the subject that a teacher could apply to one years lesson plans without further investment in time. Elizabeth McCallum Marlow has developed quality comprehensive guides for the teaching community based on her thirty-five years of experience and her passion for literature. Teaching professionals will find her tried and true practices to be invaluable. Johnathan Arnold, MBA, M.Ed, D.Ed.Min Headmaster Covenant Christian Academy, Cumming, GA

Presidential campaigns often seem like popularity contestsand that needs to change. While some savvy American voters are becoming more reflective about the need to carefully pick presidents, that hasnt stopped the system from being eroded by special interests that endanger our liberty and freedom. The authors propose a disciplined approach for evaluating a candidates resume. In developing such a process, they share the resumes of the former U.S. presidents as well as a scoring method that can be used to compare them and prospective candidates. By examining the credentials and performance of past presidents and using techniques employed by Fortune 500 companies to create a knowledge, skill, experience, and proficiency profile, we can make significant headway in selecting the best candidates. Anyone can aspire to become president, but that doesnt mean we should elect our neighbor. Find out how to evaluate who is most qualified for the job in How to Select an American President.

Author: Tina Clark
This book is not only geared towards empowering the lives of African American children, but any child regardless of race or creed. I emphasize African American only because a mass proportion of our history our people and our struggles and triumphs remain absent in most scholastic lessons undoubtfully, we people of color have overcome several injustices, but even in a nation where we now have a minority as Chief of Justice, it's our young African American boys that continue to lead the highest population of dropouts, it's our African American men that even at the age of 30 on 75% reads and comprehends at a eighth grade level, it's our African American girls that formulate 65% of teenage pregnancies and we Black women continue to lead the highest numbers for sexually transmitted diseases. Children emulate what they see; they re-produce what they've learned.

As college graduates, we start out feeling very optimistic about our career goals, but as soon as we experience some troubles - coupled with the burnout from our routine life, we suddenly want to change direction, but stop ourselves short - fearing that we won't succeed, because after all, we never developed our true passions. We didn’t go to college to learn how we might use our passions to earn a living; instead, we went to college to learn about jobs that will help us to make the most money. But getting a job doesn’t mean that we’ll experience the life we dream about. Instead, we find ourselves stuck in the routine of that life. This makes us feel as if we’re climbing a mountain, but we won’t ever make it to the top. We suddenly realize that we have chosen the wrong career path. Having success is not about how much you earn; it’s about what you do for a living. It’s about being happy and having peace of mind. You must know how to apply your education to real life experiences. Mastering algebraic equations won’t make sense if you never apply it to real-life applications. Your education must help you get to where you want to go; it must enhance your blueprint for success. Academic education teaches us how to qualify for jobs, but it does not teach us how to create jobs, and it does not teach us how to become entrepreneurs. The right education is not academically-polite, because it has nothing to do with test scores and pedagogical ideas; unless one’s goal in life is to become a university professor or something similar. Our education begins when we learn who we are as individuals: what we like, what we don’t like, and what makes us feel free. We are not here to discover the world, but rather, we are in the world to discover ourselves. Whatever path we choose, it must lead to work that gives meaning to our lives.
