This dual-language text provides theory and methodology for teaching reading in Spanish to Spanish/English bilingual or Spanish-dominant students. The goal is to help educators teach these students the skills necessary to become proficient readers and, thus, successful in the school system. At the very core of the book are the hispano-parlantes--the Spanish-speaking children--who bring to the schools, along with their native language and cultures, a wealth of resources that must be tapped and to whom all educators have a responsibility to respond. True to the concepts of developing bilingual educators to serve bilingual students, the text presents chapters in English and Spanish. Each chapter is written in only one language at the preference of the author. Thus, to be successful with this book, the reader must be bilingual. Themes emphasized in the text include current reading methodologies, the concept of reading as developmental literacy skills, reading in the content areas, new views of the development of proficiency in the second language, issues related to students with special learning needs, assessment, and the uses of technology in the delivery of instruction. Never losing sight of its goal--to teach reading in Spanish to bilingual or Spanish-dominant students--the book includes a series of focusing questions and follow-up activities; these are not simply translations of existing activities, strategies, and techniques intended for monolingual English students, but specifically designed to be appropriate for Spanish-speaking students. Directed to university preservice and in-service instructors of reading and bilingual education as well as administrators and district- and school-level staff developers who work with Hispanic populations, the book is sensitive at all times to nuances of the languages and cultures of the intended audiences.

Mein Herz so weiß

Page: 352

Erbarmungslos und genau untersucht Javier Marías in seinem internationalen Bestseller ›Mein Herz so weiߋ die Macht uneingestandener Vergangenheit. Für Juan, der als Dolmetscher ständig zwischen New York, Genf und Madrid pendelt, ist das Leben seines Vaters ein ungelöstes Rätsel. Als er selbst heiratet, stellt er sich dem, was er nicht wissen will: Direkt nach der Hochzeitsreise seines Vaters erhob sich seine erste Frau vom Tisch, nahm eine Pistole und erschoss sich im Badezimmer. Später heiratete der Witwer ihre Schwester, Juans Mutter. Der Roman zeigt Javier Marías als Meisterdetektiv des menschlichen Herzens, seiner dunklen Seiten und verborgenen Winkel. Verschwiegenheit kann bequem sein, aber sie fordert ihren Preis. Die Schärfe seiner Beobachtungen und die Eleganz seines Stils machen den Roman zu einem Klassiker der Moderne. »Dies ist ein Meisterwerk, ein ganz großes Meisterwerk.« Marcel Reich-Ranicki

Tief im Dickicht des Amazonas verbergen sich uralte Geheimnisse. Ein riesiges Fabelwesen soll an den Wasserfällen des Orinoko umgehen, doch traut man der Legende, hat noch kein Mensch den Anblick überlebt. Alex ist 15 und begleitet seine Großmutter, eine berühmte Reiseschriftstellerin, auf eine Expedition, die die Bestie aufspüren soll. Eine unheimliche Stimmung liegt über dem Camp, als hätte der Dschungel tausend Augen. Da wird Alex entführt, und mit ihm Nadia, die Tochter des Expeditionsleiters. Die beiden fürchten um ihr Leben, bis sie herausfinden, dass ihre Entführer vom Indianerstamm der Nebelmenschen sich nur verteidigen wollen. Denn die Expedition ist Teil eines perfiden Plans, der den Einheimischen die Lebensgrundlage stehlen soll. Für Nadia und Alex ist die Sache klar: Sie müssen den Nebelmenschen helfen und das Geheimnis des Urwaldwesens lüften. In »Die Stadt der wilden Götter« werden aus Nadia und Alexander ›Aguila und Jaguar‹, ungleiche Freunde und mutige Abenteurer in einer Welt voller Magie und Geheimnisse. Ein Auftakt mit Paukenschlag zu einer Trilogie über die Macht der Kameradschaft.

Lange bevor es iPad oder Kindle gab, hatte Microsoft bereits ein Tablet und einen E-Reader entwickelt. Nur: Es hatte die Produkte nie genutzt und war gegen neue Innovatoren wie Apple, Google und Amazon ins Hintertreffen geraten. Um diesen Rückstand wieder aufzuholen, musste Microsoft nicht nur eine Strategie entwickeln, wie es künftig mit neuen Technologien wie künstlicher Intelligenz, Robotern und Co umgehen wollte – der einstige Vorreiter in Sachen Innovation musste seine Kultur vollkommen erneuern und seine Seele wiederfinden. Dies ist die Inside-Story dieser Transformation.
