Each strategy provides everything a teacher needs to get started: a classroom example that models the strategy, a research-based rationale, relevant content standards, suggested books, reader-response questions and prompts, assessment ideas, examples of how to adapt the strategy for different grade levels (K–2, 3–5, and 6–8), and ideas for differentiating instruction for English language learners and struggling students. Throughout the book, student work samples and classroom vignettes bring the content to life.

CRC Practical Handbooks are a series of single-volume bench manuals that feature a synthesis of the most frequently used, basic reference information. These highly abridged versions of existing CRC multi-volume Handbooks contain largely tabular and graphic data. They provide extensive coverage in a scientific discipline and enable quick, convenient access to the most practical reference information...on the spot! Leading professionals in their respective fields collaborated to provide individuals and institutions with an economical and easy-to-use source of classic reference information. The CRC Practical Handbook of PHYSICAL PROPERTIES of ROCKS and MINERALS, prepared by leaders in their specialties, has been constructed to serve as a convenient, compact, yet comprehensive source of basic information. The technical data have been compiled and selectively edited to provide an organized and definitive presentation of the physical properties of rocks and their constituent minerals. The format is primarily tabular and graphical, for easy reference and comparisons. There is also instructive textual material to present, explain, and clarify the data. This edited and abridged version of the CRC Handbook of Physical Properties of Rocks, published in three volumes in 1982 - 1984, will serve as an easy-to-use source of current and useful reference information.

Seit Jahrtausenden kreuzen sich die Wege von Mensch und Raubkatze. Die Faszination jedoch bleibt. Sich mit den wilden Tieren vertraut zu machen, sie ganz nah zu erleben, scheint ein uralter Wunsch zu sein. Doch wie geht es den Tieren in menschlicher Obhut - sollten sie nicht besser in die Freiheit? Die Fotografin und Autorin dieses Buches, Katerina Mirus, zeigt Pro und Kontra der Raubkatzenhaltung in Zirkus, Zoo und Privathand auf. Dabei sind viele interessante Details über die Lebensweise der Tiere zu erfahren, zum Beispiel über Aufzucht und Paarungsverhalten. Aus verschiedenen Zoos werden in Wort und Bild Raubkatzen-"Persönlichkeiten" vorgestellt, die einem beim Lesen ans Herz wachsen. Ebenso gibt das Buch Einblick in Zucht- und Schutzprogramme sowie die zunehmend besseren Richtlinien für artgerechte Haltung. Ein informativer und spannender Fotoband über alle Arten von Raubkatzen, von Tiger über Jaguar und Löwe bis zu unbekannteren Arten, wie der Fischkatze.
