The tri-fold laminated reference guide Common Core Standards & English Language Arts: Strategies for Student Success (Grades 6-12) by Toby Karten presents an at-a-glance overview of the CCSS for English Language Arts (ELA) for students in grades 6-12. It is intended to help middle and high school teachers understand the organization and application of the standards for diverse students, including those with special needs.Topics covered in the guide include: * Challenges of the cross-disciplinary design of CCSS for ELA at the secondary level * College and career readiness (CCR) * CCR anchor standards for reading: literature (RL) and informational text (RI) * CCR anchor standards for writing (W) * CCR anchor standards for speaking and listening (SL) * CCR anchor standards for language (L) * Differentiating instruction for students at different reading levels * Models for measuring and evaluating text complexity * Strategies for helping students with disabilities achieve ELA standards The CCSS for ELA raise the bar to ensure students master the reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language skills they need to be college and career ready in literacy. They will yield effective outcomes for all students—including those with disabilities—if educators creatively and consistently embrace them and connect them to all of their students.

«Manhattan Transfer» gehört zu den großen revolutionären Romanen des 20. Jahrhunderts. Durch eine Fülle von Schauplätzen und Charakteren lässt Dos Passos ein schillerndes Porträt des urbanen New Yorker Dschungels entstehen, in dem das Jagdfieber wütet: nach Arbeit, Glück und Macht. Die Figuren des Romans – ein junger Einwanderer, ein Gewerkschaftsführer, ein Mörder, ein Karrierist, eine nach Selbständigkeit strebende Frau, ein sensibler Alkoholiker und andere – scheinen aus der unbestimmbar großen Masse der Stadtbewohner herausgerissen, um irgendwann wieder in ihrem Gewühl unterzugehen. Der eigentliche Protagonist des Romans ist jedoch die Großstadt New York von den frühen Jahren des 20. Jahrhunderts bis nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg – eine immense, scheinbar anarchische Macht, der alle ausgeliefert sind. Der Roman ist panoramisch, filmisch, eine beeindruckende Collage modernen Lebens, voller Episoden und Brüche. Dos Passos’ Kamerablick setzt das Dokumentarische neben das Erleben seiner fiktiven Figuren; er verfolgt sie durch das Dickicht der Stadt, überlässt es jedoch dem Leser, seine Schlüsse aus ihrem Lebenskampf zu ziehen. Nach Erscheinen dieses Romans rückte Dos Passos mit einem Schlag in die Riege der wichtigsten Autoren des 20. Jahrhunderts. In ihm vermischen sich der Naturalismus eines Theodore Dreiser und der Modernismus eines James Joyce zu einem vibrierenden, atemlos rhythmischen Stil, der bis heute nichts von seiner schillernden Farbigkeit und leuchtenden Intensität eingebüßt hat. Zahlreiche Autoren nahmen sich Dos Passos weltweit zum Vorbild, unter anderem übte er maßgeblichen Einfluss auf Alfred Döblins berühmten Roman «Berlin Alexanderplatz» aus. Die vorliegende Neuübersetzung stammt von dem renommierten Literaturübersetzer Dirk van Gunsteren (Thomas Pynchon, Philip Roth, T.C. Boyle) und ersetzt die aus dem Jahr 1966 stammende von Paul Baudisch. Sie ist mit einem Nachwort von Clemens Meyer (bekannt durch seinen ebenfalls Dos Passos verpflichteten großen Leipzig-Roman «Im Stein») versehen.

Nietzsche argued that ideas should be placed in the twilight between the daylight of continued usage and the darkness of irrelevance for humans. This volume distinguishes itself from other books on strategic management in that it explores the corporate strategy concept in an ethical twilight. Gilbert argues that the corporate strategy concept provides hope that the corporation can be interpreted as a context in which humans can flourish, even as the dominant use of that concept denies such hope.
