Interesting book written by a birth mother and how placing her daughter up for adoption changed her life emotionally and intellectually. She now fights for a change in adoption laws and feels the birth mother should have the right to gain knowledge on the whereabouts of the placed child. Whether you agree with the authors point of view or not, I would recommend it for all that are involved in the triad of an adoption.
Has everything you need to put on a mock trial in your classroom. I used it and my students loved doing it. Really helped them to understand the criminal justice system. The outcome of the case presented will depend on the evidence the lawyers choose to use, the rulings of the judge, the composition of the jury etc. Therefore,every time you use it, it will turn out different. If you teach Government, you'll love this book.
This was a great read, especially since I work with at risk adolescents similar to the ones the author worked with. I found it inspired me to work harder with my students, just as she did. The students she worked with stole her heart. She writes about them so they steal the readers heart as well. I truly recommend this book to all educators and those who are interested in helping kids stay in school. It will help you understand their plight.
I was a little disappointed with this book. Expected more in depth stories. Most of them were short, 2 to 3 pages, and really didn't reflect much of a glimpse of anything. It's an okay read but not a great read.
Easy book to read. Interesting for the most part but didn't let you in on any magnificent great hidden secrets. Mostly told of the nuances of past presidents and their immediate family members. Let you know how some of the staff felt about these members of the White House also.
Great book about man and nature. The man its written about is something like a modern day Daniel Boone. Modern only because it takes place in current time. Easy to read and keeps your interest throughout.
