Why do you have brown eyes, hairy fingers, dangly earlobes, or knuckles that crack? Are you a thrill-seeker, a people-person, a computer whizz, or a social wallflower with a morbid fear of spiders? And if so, who's to blame -- your parents or your genes? What Makes Me, Me? is an age-appropriate tour of the tricky subject of biology and how genetic make-up and experience makes everyone unique. Find out what genes and chromosomes are for, why some people are left-footed but right-eyed, and what it takes to become an Olympic athlete or a chess grand master. Diagrams, illustrations, updated images, and the easy-to-understand text in What Makes Me, Me? makes this difficult subject digestible, while tests and quizzes create a personal experience allowing children to see how the information relates to themselves.

Lam Rim 3 Volume 3 introduces the medium scope of the spiritual path, aligned with Buddha’s famous Four Noble Truths: ordinary life is in nature suffering, there are specific causes for that suffering, these can be eliminated, and one can follow a reliable method and arrive at liberation, the state free of suffering. Lam Rim, the graduated path – or roadmap – to enlightenment, is a foundational teaching of Tibetan Buddhism, outlining the progression of spiritual practices needed to attain full enlightenment, by breaking it down into three scopes: initial, medium and Mahayana. Based on the Liberation in the Palm of your Hand, an oral teaching by the famous Pabongka Rinpoche, Gelek Rimpoche, with characteristic wit and humor, lays out the path in easy-to understand every day terms – a lam rim teaching for our times.

What are "essential questions," and how do they differ from other kinds of questions? What's so great about them? Why should you design and use essential questions in your classroom? Essential questions (EQs) help target standards as you organize curriculum content into coherent units that yield focused and thoughtful learning. In the classroom, EQs are used to stimulate students' discussions and promote a deeper understanding of the content. Whether you are an Understanding by Design (UbD) devotee or are searching for ways to address standards--local or Common Core State Standards--in an engaging way, Jay McTighe and Grant Wiggins provide practical guidance on how to design, initiate, and embed inquiry-based teaching and learning in your classroom. Offering dozens of examples, the authors explore the usefulness of EQs in all K-12 content areas, including skill-based areas such as math, PE, language instruction, and arts education. As an important element of their backward design approach to designing curriculum, instruction, and assessment, the authors *Give a comprehensive explanation of why EQs are so important; *Explore seven defining characteristics of EQs; *Distinguish between topical and overarching questions and their uses; *Outline the rationale for using EQs as the focal point in creating units of study; and *Show how to create effective EQs, working from sources including standards, desired understandings, and student misconceptions. Using essential questions can be challenging--for both teachers and students--and this book provides guidance through practical and proven processes, as well as suggested "response strategies" to encourage student engagement. Finally, you will learn how to create a culture of inquiry so that all members of the educational community--students, teachers, and administrators--benefit from the increased rigor and deepened understanding that emerge when essential questions become a guiding force for learners of all ages.

In 'The Big Questions: Ethics' Julian Baggini, one of Britain's best-known philosophers, condenses complex, contemporary issues of right and wrong into 20 key questions. He examines how we can start to answer them, what they might mean to us and how they influence the way we choose to live our lives. Among the ideas debated are: What is free will? Can it ever be right to kill? Is terrorism ever justified? Should euthanasia be legal? Are some people superior to others? Do animals have rights?
