More > focuses on the ways in which highly motivated readers can foster stronger reading comprehension and habits. This is important to study because reading motivation has decreased in classrooms, and in 2005 a national U.S. survey illustrated that 4th grade students did not look at reading as a preferred leisure activity (Becker, McElvany, & Kortenbruch, 2010, Guthrie, Mcrae, and Klauda, 2007); moreover, low reading motivation is often linked to low reading skills (Morgan & Fuchs, 2007).

Christ the Savior By Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange

[Hardcover] Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange interprets St. Thomas on the Incarnation of God the Son, by which humankind is saved. He treats the Incarnation's motive, the hypostatic union, and its effects. He... More > discusses such difficult problems as Christ's freedom and impeccability, the intrinsically infinite value of His merits and satisfaction, His predestination and ours, and the reconciliation of His Passion's extreme sorrow with the supreme happiness He experienced in the summit of His soul. All is referred to the plenitude of His grace. This plenitude caused the beatific vision in the summit of His soul while also prompting His ardent love as priest and victim, so that He willed to be overwhelmed with grief and to die a perfect holocaust. In all, Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange upholds Christ's unity inasmuch as He is one personal Being, although He has two really distinct and infinitely different natures. Christ's Person is the sole principle of all His theandric operations. At the book's end is a compendium on Mariology.< Less

This book is the professional autobiography of a dedicated teacher. Time spent in traditional teaching methods, with the class system controlled by the timetable, caused him great dissatisfaction... More > since it clearly did not maintain the interest and motivation of the pupils. Too much effort and time was spent on controlling the class, little time for helping children who were dropping behind in the rigid system and scarcely any involvement which could stimulate learning by the pupils. Various experiences pointed to a different method of organising a school, in which the pupils controlled their own programme and the teachers taught, and also had time to work with pupils who needed extra guidance. The result was a school where social education and discipline were intrinsic to the school work and pupils left with the knowledge and ability to work and live in the adult community.< Less
