Let's face it, grammar can be boring to teach and can definitely be boring to learn. This book makes grammar lessons more engaging and interesting for "intermediate and advanced" ESL / EFL students. I've handpicked the most commonly taught grammar points "and made conversation questions that allow students to produce the grammar naturally." For each of the grammar points there are short, simple, and easy to understand explanations. You can give these explanations to your students or use them for yourself as a guide or reminder. There are at least 17 questions for each of the grammar points. So your students will have plenty to talk about. Plus, they'll be using the grammar you just taught them in a natural and pain-free way. "So what are the grammar points in the book?" simple past, present perfect, simple present, modals of possibility and probability, gerunds vs. infinitives, modals of necessity, modals of advice, comparatives, conditionals real with the future (first conditional), will, be going to, passive voice in the present, past continuous, reported speech / indirect speech, conditionals unreal with the past (third conditional), conditionals unreal with the present (second conditional), nouns (count / noncount / countable / uncountable), quantifiers, conditionals real with the present (zero conditional), present perfect continuous, superlatives, tag questions, adverbs of frequency, as ... as (equatives), imperatives, passive voice with the past, used to / would, for / since, would rather / prefer. Look familiar? I'm sure you're teaching some of these in your class. I'm also sure that you've taught a lot of these in the past. And you know what? You'll probably be teaching most of these in the future. Wouldn't it be nice to have some extra resources when it's time to teach grammar in your class?

Massage techniques are widely and effectively used in the treatment of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) to address sensory issues, motor problems and touch receptivity. However, the variety of different styles of massage available often leaves parents baffled and unsure about which touch therapy treatment is best for their child. This practical guide explains how massage works, how the body senses touch, and how touch therapy can benefit children with ASDs. It describes exactly what each type of massage entails. Covering anatomy-oriented massages, energy-based massages and therapeutic bodywork, this is the book that helps readers tell Reiki from reflexology, a Swedish from a sports massage, or tuina from a Thai massage. With recommendations for selecting the right style of massage, advice on locating a practitioner, and tips on preparing a child with an ASD for massage, this is the perfect resource to find a therapy – or combination of therapies – to suit each individual child. This book will be essential reading for all parents and caregivers interested in the benefits of therapeutic massage and bodywork for children and adolescents with ASDs, and practitioners looking at alternatives for therapeutic intervention.

"Those who find themselves living in the Americas, no matter what their ethnic, educational, or economic background, must ultimately 'become their own personalities,' melding their point of view with their points of origin and their places of settlement. For immigrant or refugee families and their children, this 'process of becoming' often means struggling with the contradictions of race, generation, economics, class, work, religion, gender, and sexuality within the family, workplace, or school. . . . Perhaps nowhere is the struggle more raw, poignant, and moving than in the words of the younger generation at the cusp of such becoming. We readers can also find insights within the candid accounts of their personal lives and in the experiences of their family and friends."—from Balancing Two WorldsBalancing Two Worlds highlights themes surrounding the creation of Asian American identity. This book contains fourteen first-person narratives by Asian American college students, most of whom have graduated during the first five years of the twenty-first century. Their engaging accounts detail the students' very personal struggles with issues of assimilation, gender, religion, sexuality, family conflicts, educational stereotypes, and being labeled the "model minority." Some of the students relate stories drawn from their childhood and adolescent experiences, while others focus more on their college experiences at Dartmouth. Anyone who wants to learn about the changing concept of race in America and what it's like to be a young American of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Burmese, or South Asian descent—from educators and college administrators to students and their families—will find Balancing Two Worlds a compelling read and a valuable resource.

A classic work of American literature that has not stopped changing minds and lives since it burst onto the literary scene, The Things They Carried is a ground-breaking meditation on war, memory, imagination, and the redemptive power of storytelling. The Things They Carried depicts the men of Alpha Company: Jimmy Cross, Henry Dobbins, Rat Kiley, Mitchell Sanders, Norman Bowker, Kiowa, and the character Tim O’Brien, who has survived his tour in Vietnam to become a father and writer at the age of forty-three. Taught everywhere—from high school classrooms to graduate seminars in creative writing—it has become required reading for any American and continues to challenge readers in their perceptions of fact and fiction, war and peace, courage and fear and longing. The Things They Carried won France's prestigious Prix du Meilleur Livre Etranger and the Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize; it was also a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award.
