"The first practical guide of its kind that helps students transition smoothly from high school to college. The transition from high school--and home--to college can be stressful. Students and parents often arrive on campus unprepared for what college is really like. Academic standards and expectations are different from high school; families aren't present to serve as 'scaffolding' for students; and first-years have to do what they call 'adulting.' Nothing in the college admissions process prepares students for these new realities. As a result, first-year college students report higher stress, more mental health issues, and lower completion rates than in the past. In fact, up to one third of first-year college students will not return for their second year--and colleges are reporting an increase in underprepared first-year students. How to College is here to help. Professors Andrea Malkin Brenner and Lara Schwartz guide first-year students and their families through the transition process, during the summer after high school graduation and throughout the school year, preparing students to succeed and thrive as they transition and adapt to college. The book draws on the authors' experience teaching, writing curriculum, and designing programs for thousands of first-year college students over decades"-- Provided by publisher.

When Ron Clark walked into his fifth-grade class in rural North Carolina, he was confronted with disinterested children in desperate need of structure and compassion. Brainstorming how best to reignite their love of learning, Ron created 55 lessons. Soon his fifth graders were reading at a sixth-grade level, engaging in class, and loving school. What's more, they were gaining something crucial: self-respect. These lessons evolved into The Essential 55 - guidelines for students on how to live and interact with others. Ron lit a fire under parents and teachers around the world to raise their standards and expect the most from their students. The Essential 55 features a new foreword from Ron and a fresh take on his classic rules. Ron's 55 ideas show that with determination, discipline, and regular rewards, the children you stick by will be the children you eventually admire.

Gropius : the man who built the Bauhaus

April 16, 2019

viii, 547 pages, 16 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations ; 25 cm
"First published in 2018 by Faber & Faber Limited Bloomsbury House United Kingdom."
Preface: The silver prince -- First life: Germany -- Berlin 1883-1907 -- Spain 1907-1908 -- Berlin 1908-1910 -- Vienna and Alma Mahler 1910-1913 -- Gropius at war 1914-1918 -- Bauhaus: Weimar and Lily Hildebrandt 1919-1920 -- Bauhaus: Weimar and Maria Benemann 1920-1922 -- Bauhaus: Weimar and Ise Gropius 1923-1925 -- Bauhaus: Dessau 1925-1926 -- Bauhaus: Dessau 1927-1928 -- America 1928 -- Berlin 1928-1932 -- Berlin 1933-1934 -- Second life: London, Berlin, Rome 1934 -- London 1934 -- London 1935 -- London 1935-1936 -- London 1936-1937 -- Third life: America -- Harvard 1937-1939 -- Harvard and the Second World War 1940-1944 -- Return to Berlin 1945-1947 -- Harvard and TAC 1948-1952 -- Wandering star: Japan, Paris, London, Baghdad, Berlin 1953-1959 -- New England 1960-1969 -- Afterword: Reverberations.
The impact of Walter Gropius can be measured in his buildings--Fagus Factory, Bauhaus Dessau, Pan Am--but no less in his students. I. M. Pei, Paul Rudolph, Anni Albers, Philip Johnson, Fumihiko Maki: countless masters were once disciples at the Bauhaus in Berlin and at Harvard. Between 1910 and 1930, Gropius was at the center of European modernism and avant-garde society glamor, only to be exiled to the antimodernist United Kingdom during the Nazi years. Later, under the democratizing influence of American universities, Gropius became an advocate of public art and cemented a starring role in twentieth-century architecture and design. Fiona MacCarthy challenges the image of Gropius as a doctrinaire architectural rationalist, bringing out the visionary philosophy and courage that carried him through a politically hostile age. Pilloried by Tom Wolfe as inventor of the monolithic high-rise, Gropius is better remembered as inventor of a form of art education that influenced schools worldwide. He viewed argument as intrinsic to creativity. Unusually for one in his position, Gropius encouraged women's artistic endeavors and sought equal romantic partners. Though a traveler in elite circles, he objected to the cloistering of beauty as "a special privilege for the aesthetically initiated." Gropius offers a poignant and personal story--and a fascinating reexamination of the urges that drove European and American modernism.-- Provided by publisher.

Miscamble, Wilson D., 1953- author.

xx, 442 pages, 16 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations ; 25 cm
Preparation of a priest-President -- Ambitious President 1952-1958 -- Father Hesburgh and the pursuit of excellence 1958-1966 -- Changes, challenges and turmoil 1967-1977 -- Building a distinctive legacy 1978-1987 -- Old and new: Dwight Eisenhower, Pius XII, John XXIII, and John F. Kennedy -- The height of influence: Paul VI, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Gerald Ford -- From insider to outsider [of sorts]: Jimmy Carter, John Paul II, and Ronald Reagan -- A restive retirement.
"A provocative new biography probes deeply into the storied life of Father Ted Hesburgh, the well-loved but often controversial president of Notre Dame University. Considered for many decades to be the most influential priest in America, Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, played what many consider pivotal roles in higher education, the Catholic Church, and national and international affairs. American Priest examines his life and his many and varied engagements--from the university he led for thirty-five years to his associations with the Vatican and the White House--and evaluates the extent and importance of his legacy. Author and Notre Dame priest-professor Wilson D. Miscamble tracks how Hesburgh transformed Catholic higher education in the postwar era and explores how he became a much-celebrated voice in America at large. Yet, beyond the hagiography that often surrounds Hesburgh's legacy lies another more complex and challenging story. What exactly were his contributions to higher learning; what was his involvement in the civil rights movement; and what was the nature of his role as advisor to popes and presidents? Understanding Hesburgh's life and work illuminates the journey that the Catholic Church traversed over the second half of the twentieth century. Exploring and evaluating Hesburgh's importance, then, contributes not only to the colorful history of Notre Dame but also to comprehending the American Catholic experience"-- Provided by publisher.
