Set in a small boarding school on the eve of America's entry into World War Two, A Good School tells the story of William Grove, the nervous teenager trying to fit in; the betrayed alcoholic, Jack Draper; and Edith Stone, the teacher's daughter, who falls in love with the most popular boy in school. Instantly acclaimed on its first publication, peopled with some of Richard Yates's most memorable characters, this tender, spare masterpiece is a haunting meditation on the twilight of youth, and an unforgettable description of the impact of war on the lives of an innocent generation.

All the moves to become a serious skateboarder.

Praise for The Skateboarding Field Manual, also by Ryan Stutt:

"Stutt's appealing title is rife with the glossy glamour that should win nods of approval from even proficient shredders." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

From selecting the right board, to learning which way to stand, to landing a kick flip, Skateboarding Skills provides critical instruction for young riders of all experience levels. New riders will learn essential skills to advance their riding ability while experienced riders will learn new tricks to add to their repertoire.

Ryan Stutt shows riders the fundamental techniques that will lead them to success as they practice skateboarding's most important and widely-used flips, grinds and slides. These include:

  • Ollies and Nollies
  • Manuals
  • Boardslides, Lipslides, Noseslides and Tailslides
  • 50-50 grinds, 5-0 grinds and Nose grinds
  • Smith grinds, Feeble grinds and Crooked grinds
  • Kickflips and Heelflips
  • Pop Shuvs
  • Varial Flips and 360 Flips.

With Skateboarding Skills, riders will learn the building blocks that are the basis of all skateboarding tricks. Instruction for both flatground and vert skateboarding, plus real-time action sequences that capture the tricks step by step, will help riders learn how to execute the same moves that professional skateboarders use.

All photographs show riders wearing the most essential of safety equipment -- a helmet.

Based on Classroom Experience
Focusing on the causes for the continuing marginalization of minority children, this book examines inner-city education, its teaching practices, curricular rationales, perspectives of teachers and students, and the institutions themselves. Framed in the author's own experience as an inner city middle school teacher, this book explores the historical development, the truncated curriculum, the pedagogical styles, the preconceptions that teachers and students bring to their daily interactions, and the social and educational justifications for the profound educational failure of inner city schools.
Offers the Views of Teachers, Students, and Parents
The material takes the reader into classrooms, faculty meetings, playgrounds, and conversations with students and parents to demonstrate the poverty of education as practiced in the inner city. The book details and critiques the educational goals, the rationalizing ideologies, the paucity of reform efforts, especially that of multiculturalism, in these schools, and criticizes the failure of institutional teacher education to address the needs of urban students. While surveying education in urban and inner city schools, the author spotlights the challenges that educators face at this time of increasing diversity and dwindling resources in American schools.
