Dignity in Death

“I have plenty of time to think about death.” 

The truth is, none of us are getting out of here alive, and few of us avoid the anguish of living through a loved one’s death. Barbara Frandsen, a lifelong educator who lost her own mother as a child, shares her observations and thoughts: 

·      How does the death of a parent impact a child?

·      Does losing an older parent differ from other losses?

·      Is it more courageous to fight for life or to accept death?

·      What words and actions tend to comfort as we transition?

·      How can we prepare for an end on our own terms?

This book is an invitation to release fear and embrace acceptance, opening new and limitless opportunities for knowledge, adventure, and unconditional love.

Slaying the Dragons: 21st Century Literacy

We know that those fearsome, fire-breathing creatures known as dragons do not truly exist. Yet, in the world of literacy instruction, teachers often feel as though they are battling equally severe and frightening conditions that hinder literacy success. Slaying the Dragons: 21st Century Literacy considers several causes of literacy failure. The most severe literacy challenges come from various types of dyslexia and dysgraphia and are the predominant challenges that are considered for remediation. Research information, suggested strategies, and recommended modifications follow the introduction of each “dragon.” © 2011 Author House.

Making a Difference For Students with Differences

Whether you teach in a public, private, or a home setting, you will sometimes face the challenge of a student who learns differently. As you strive to meet the needs of a special student, you will yearn for adaptations and modification ideas. Making a Difference for Students with Differences contains a collection of adaptations. Many of the ideas come from areas of expertise outside education. For that reason, some suggestions may seem extraordinary. However, students with drastic needs require drastic responses. The text begins with the foundation and terminology of special education and proceeds with new terms for inclusion. A bibliography contains valuable resources for materials, equipment, and workshops in the hopes that pre-service teachers, in-service teachers, and parents will seek additional resources for special learners.

Dyslexia Analysis

In 1988, Sharon Smith and Barbara Frandsen developed electronic checklists of characteristics for dyslexia, dysgraphia and related disorders. The purpose was to raise awareness of behaviors that can easily be dismissed as unimportant. The authors hoped that checklists would be used as evidence to request in-depth testing by a school or diagnostician.
