The Runaway Midwife: A Novel , Hörbuch, Digital...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From the USA Today best-selling author of the Hope River series comes a new contemporary midwife novel. Say good-bye to your old life and hello to the life you've been waiting for. Midwife Clara Perry is accustomed to comforting her pregnant patients, calming fathers-to-be as they anxiously await the births of their children and ensuring the babies she delivers come safely into the world. But when Clara's life takes a nosedive, she realizes she hasn't been tending to her own needs and does something drastic. She runs away and starts over again in a place where no one knows her or the mess she's left behind in West Virginia. Heading to Sea Gull Island - a tiny, remote Canadian island - Clara is ready for anything. Well, almost. She left her passport back home, and the only way she can enter Canada is by hitching a ride on a snowmobile and illegally crossing the border. Deciding to reinvent herself, Clara takes a new identity: Sara Livingston, a writer seeking solitude. But there's no avoiding the outside world. The residents are friendly and draw Sara into their lives and confidences. She volunteers at the local medical clinic, using her midwifery skills, and forms a tentative relationship with a local police officer. But what will happen if she lets down her guard and reveals the real reason why she left her old life? One lesson soon becomes clear: no matter how far you run, you can never really hide from your past. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tavia Gilbert.

The Menopause Manual
168,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Years of involvement, firsthand experience and research at the Menopause Clinic of the Groote Schuur Hospital, Cape Town, exist as the background to this book. The Clinic itself, however, as one of the first in the world to be established, if not the first, has a story and a lesson of its own to offer, and is therefore deserving of a brief description as the preface to the book. In 1967, shortly after Christiaan Barnard had completed the historical first human heart transplant at the Groote Schuur Hospital, I happened to be in West Berlin and was invited to visit a major international pharmaceutical firm. A new female hormone was mentioned, and thereby started my interest in the subject. Upon my return to Cape Town, I spent many hours in the large medical school library and completely surveyed the menopause literature to 1967. I was stunned by its general inadequacy and was bitten by a challenge to clarify what menopause really was, and to define the proper place of hormone replacement therapy.

Academic Vocabulary in Middle and High School
41,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

'The definitive primer on how to teach academic vocabulary. Drawing on the latest and best research, the book delves into the subtleties of language without leaving the reader behind. The authors offer numerous lesson plans, strategies, and classroom vignettes that ground their work in the daily teaching and learning of the classroom. Invaluable for teachers and preservice teachers in every content area, the book unlocks the secrets behind successful vocabulary instruction. This book could be the centerpiece of a professional development program on vocabulary development at a middle or high school. It would be a wonderful text in a college teacher preparation course on content-area reading.'--Timothy Dohrer, PhD, Director, Master of Science in Education Program, Northwestern University 'Trusted voices in adolescent literacy provide teachers and school literacy leaders with a much-needed guide. The authors weave current knowledge about vocabulary development into their consideration of how teachers can meet the rigorous vocabulary expectations of the Common Core standards. Especially welcome are chapters that infuse vocabulary practices and strategies into specific disciplines: social studies, math and science, and English language arts instruction. The wealth of online resources highlighted by the authors is extremely useful.'--Doug Buehl, MS, author of Developing Readers in the Academic Disciplines 'Understanding and using academic vocabulary is the most essential component in mastering disciplinary knowledge. This book addresses such practical issues as how to select words for instruction, how to help students acquire word-learning strategies, the elements of a successful vocabulary program, and what strategies work for different content areas. Middle and high school teachers will find essential guidance for helping students become more proficient in learning academic language. This would be an excellent 'book study' for teachers and administrators, and a terrific text for undergraduate teacher education courses. I am delighted to see a book on this important topic.'--Judith L. Irvin, PhD, Executive Director, National Literacy Project; Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies (Emerita), Florida State University 'This important work focuses on the essential role of words as tools that help students gain access to content and concepts in the classroom. The book not only explores instructional approaches that support older students vocabulary development, but also addresses the various ways that words are used across disciplines. A 'must read' for preservice teachers, those already in the classroom, and instructional leaders.'--Evelyn Ford-Connors, EdD, Associate Director, Donald D. Durrell Reading and Writing Clinic, Boston University School of Education
