Bigger Thomas, ein junger Schwarzer, fühlt sich gefangen in einem Leben in Armut und Perspektivlosigkeit. Sein einziges Ventil ist Gewalt. Er war bereits in der Besserungsanstalt, ein weiteres Vergehen würde für ihn Gefängnis bedeuten. Doch dann gibt der wohlhabende Mr Dalton dem jungen Mann eine Chance und stellt ihn als Chauffeur an. Als Bigger die Tochter des Hauses spätnachts und betrunken auf ihr Zimmer bringt und ihre blinde Mutter, von dem Lärm geweckt, den Raum betritt, versucht Bigger aus Angst vor falschen Verdächtigungen, das Mädchen mit einem Kissen zum Schweigen zu bringen, und erstickt sie dabei. Davon überzeugt, dass man ihm Absicht unterstellen wird, verstrickt er sich in Lügen und weitere Gewalt, bis er schließlich gefasst und des Mordes und der Vergewaltigung angeklagt wird. Das ganze Land stellt sich gegen ihn, nur der Anwalt Max kämpft um Verständnis für Biggers Taten. Der literarische Durchbruch von Richard Wright war gleichzeitig der erste Bestseller eines afroamerikanischen Autors und liegt nun zum ersten Mal in vollständiger deutscher Übersetzung vor.

Foreword by Colby Sharp In the decade since the first edition of Still Learning to Read was published, the prevalence of testing and the Common Core State Standards have changed what is expected of both teachers and students. The new edition of Still Learning to Read focuses on the needs of students in grades 3-6 in all aspects of reading workshop, including reading workshop, read-aloud, classroom design, digital tools, fiction, nonfiction, and close reading. The book stays true to its original beliefs of slowing down and knowing our readers, but it also takes into account the sense of urgency that changing times and standards impose on classrooms. This edition examines current trends in literacy, includes a new section on intentional instructional planning, and provides expanded examples of mini-lessons and routines that promote deeper thinking about learning. It also includes a brand new chapter on scaffolding for reading nonfiction and showcases the authors' latest thinking on close reading and text complexity. Online videos provide glimpses into classrooms as students make book choices, work in small groups, and discuss their reading notebooks. Expanded and updated book lists, recommendations for digital tools, lesson cycles, and sections specifically written for school leaders round out this foundational resource.

The key question in planning all ages worship is: "How can we share the Bible passages and their message, visually and actively, in ways that will keep children involved as well as inspire adults?" Usually we are looking for a drama, or a parade, or an experience that can involve the whole congregation. Once we have that in place then the hymns, prayers, and so forth come quite easily. This book includes such resources for use on special days when children are present.

Contemporary American youth live in a culture that ignores or denigrates labor unions. Mainstream media cover labor issues only sparingly and unions no longer play much of a role in popular culture texts, films, or images. In our schools labor has been limited to a footnote in textbooks instead of being treated seriously as the most effective force for championing the rights of working people—the vast majority of the citizenry.
