If you are an elementary school teacher or parent of an elementary school student who loves the theater, but has no theatrical experience. Then this book is for you. This teacher was the student council advisor for the school and a true lover of the theater who went to the theater often and exposed her students to the theater by helping them raise money in many ways to bring a performing arts traveling theater company of a local college to the school. When this college lost their funding and could no longer travel to perform for the various schools in the area, the children in this school asked their advisor to organize their very own theater group for the school. Well, this teacher told them in no uncertain terms that she knew absolutely nothing about acting and would not even know how to begin a drama program. Well, the children convinced this teacher to at least try. So she did. This book shows how this teacher through her friends and family members who knew people who knew theatrical people who guided her and showed her how she really could organize a real drama program for her school. This book shows the elementary teacher how to teach the children to write their own script from their favorite book in their library. Then eventually write their own version of popular stories such as "The Wizard of Oz". It also shows the teacher how to organize the parents of the students into the essential needs of a drama club by assessing the various talents of the parents and interested members of the faculty. This book also shows the drama teacher how to introduce to the students various improvisations and exercises for developing acting skills. It also includes the scripts and directions for nine different plays, including suggested music, all suitable for elementary students. In other words, it is a book of how an elementary teacher went from having no theatrical experience to how she was able to organize a very successful drama club, that was invited to perform for the D.A.R.E. conference and the governor at the capitol building in Sacramento, California.

Worldwide, rhymes have been recited to children for generations. These rhymes are familiar to the masses, but behind the lyrical prose was information and insight into the world those children and their parents were living in. Nursery Rhymes for Adult Spiritual Enrichment is a collection of 39 notable rhymes that are aimed at connecting adult readers to history, most notably, the years leading up to the signing of the Declaration of Independence and its impact on Great Britain then and shortly thereafter. While many can recite these rhymes verbatim, few, if any, have learned the secrets behind the words. They are more than fun lyrics and memorable tunes; they are rich in history and rooted in the realities of what life was like at that time. Not only will you gain insight into the world so long ago, but you will come to understand the spiritual connection between the rhymes and the undeniable perseverance of a people besieged by tragedy, yet deeply rooted in their faith and in their quest to hold on to joy in a world that offered few opportunities to experience it.

Why is the Resurrection of Christ so remote, almost non-existent in many early Christian writings of the first 140 years of Christianity? This is the first Patristic book to focus on the development of the belief in the Resurrection of Christ through the first centuries A.D. By Paul, Christ's Resurrection is regarded as the basis of Christian hope. In the fourth century it becomes a central Christian tenet. But what about the discrepancy in the first three centuries? This thought provoking book explores this core topic in Christian culture and theology. Taking a broad approach - including iconography, archaeology, history, philosophy, Jewish Studies and theology - Markus Vinzent offers innovative reading of well known biblical and other texts complemented by rarely discussed evidence. Christ's Resurrection in Early Christianity takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the wilderness of unorthodox perspectives in the breadth of early Christian writings. It is an eye-opening experience with insights into the craftsmanship of early Christianity - and the earliest existential debates about life and death, death and life - all centred on the cross, on suffering, enduring and sacrifice.

Tracing her moral struggles to the day she accidentally took a sip of water before her Communion—a mortal sin—Mary McCarthy gives us eight funny and heartrending essays about the illusive and redemptive nature of memory “During the course of writing this, I’ve often wished that I were writing fiction.” Originally published in large part as standalone essays in the New Yorker and Harper’s Bazaar, Mary McCarthy’s acclaimed memoir begins with her recollections of a happy childhood cut tragically short by the death of her parents during the influenza epidemic of 1918. Tempering memory with invention, McCarthy describes how, orphaned at six, she spent much of her childhood shuttled between two sets of grandparents and three religions—Catholic, Protestant, and Jewish. One of four children, she suffered abuse at the hands of her great-aunt and uncle until she moved to Seattle to be raised by her maternal grandparents. Early on, McCarthy lets the reader in on her secret: The chapter you just read may not be wholly reliable—facts have been distilled through the hazy lens of time and distance. In Memories of a Catholic Girlhood, McCarthy pays homage to the past and creates hope for the future. Reminiscent of Nabokov’s Speak, Memory, this is a funny, honest, and unsparing account blessed with the holy sacraments of forgiveness, love, and redemption. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Mary McCarthy including rare images from the author’s estate.

Mary McCarthy, one of our most brilliant and beloved authors, serves up wit, insight, and her unique worldview in this diverse collection of essays In provocatively titled pieces such as “The Contagion of Ideas,” “Tyranny of the Orgasm,” and “No News, or,What Killed the Dog,” Mary McCarthy expresses her frank, unflinching, often contrarian point of view. Nothing—and no one—is safe from her merciless writer’s eye—from politics to the ever-changing social scene to the strengths and weaknesses of her native country, where she believes “passivity and not aggressiveness is the dominant trait of the American character.” On the Contrary also features a cast of memorable characters. In “Naming Names,” Arthur Miller’s testimony before the House Un-American Activities Committee results in an indictment for contempt of Congress. McCarthy reviews The Human Condition, Hannah Arendt’s breakthrough book, and despairs of finding a “really American place” to take a visiting existentialist—a thinly disguised Simone de Beauvoir? From Dickens to Gandhi to the Kinsey Reports, with pithy and wide-ranging articles on everything from fashion to fiction, the human condition, religion, and sex, On the Contrary raises controversial questions to which, even today, there are no easy answers. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Mary McCarthy including rare images from the author’s estate.

What can be said about The Spiral Mirror that you dont already know? Answering that question could prove to be difficult since you already know everything there is to know... By that I mean you are the spiral mirror, as am I. Each of our lives is an interwoven, interdependent, double helix reflecting back at one another. Existing beneath breathable water, with its distorted images, gazing into this constantly changing, shape shifting apparatus known as life, looking deeply into ourselves and our experiences, only begins the journey of self discovery, a journey that cannot be contained in one lifetime, much less this one book. Ive come slightly beyond the beginning of my journey, and am now sharing that beginning with you.

First published in 1976, this was the first comprehensive annotated bibliography of Mary Wollstonecraft’s works and most of the critical and biographical comments on her in English written between 1788 and 1975. It is designed both as a research tool for scholars and students and as a revelation of the quantity and variety of comment. The book is divided into three main chronological time periods of publication date and suggests the vagaries of Wollstonecraft’s posthumous reputation and indicates the peaks and troughs of interest. Known as an eighteenth-century British writer, philosopher, and advocate of women's rights, Mary Wollstonecraft has received much critical attention with particular interest in her unorthodox lifestyle of the time and is now regarded as one of the founding feminist philosophers.

The Oxford Handbook of Cognitive Linguistics presents a comprehensive overview of the main theoretical concepts and descriptive/theoretical models of Cognitive Linguistics, and covers its various subfields, theoretical as well as applied. The first twenty chapters give readers the opportunity to acquire a thorough knowledge of the fundamental analytic concepts and descriptive models of Cognitive Linguistics and their background. The book starts with a set of chapters discussing different conceptual phenomena that are recognized as key concepts in Cognitive Linguistics: prototypicality, metaphor, metonymy, embodiment, perspectivization, mental spaces, etc. A second set of chapters deals with Cognitive Grammar, Construction Grammar, and Word Grammar, which, each in their own way, bring together the basic concepts into a particular theory of grammar and a specific model for the description of grammatical phenomena. Special attention is given to the interrelation between Cognitive and Construction Grammar. A third set of chapters compares Cognitive Linguistics with other forms of linguistic research (functional linguistics, autonomous linguistics, and the history of linguistics), thus giving a readers a better grip on the position of Cognitive Linguistics within the landscape of linguistics at large. The remaining chapters apply these basic notions to various more specific linguistic domains, illustrating how Cognitive Linguistics deals with the traditional linguistic subdomains (phonology, morphology, lexicon, syntax, text and discourse), and demonstrating how it handles linguistic variation and change. Finally they consider its importance in the domain of Applied Linguistics, and look at interdisciplinary links with research fields such as philosophy and psychology. With a well-known cast of contributors from around the world, this reference work will be of interest to researchers and advanced students in (cognitive) linguistics, psychology, cognitive science, and anthropology.
