From the Intergalactic Space Station, Ali peered through the orbit meter set on Alexandria, Egypt around 2,000 years ago and began to sweat. Seeing the orange flames soaring higher and higher, he imagined the sound of crackling as the precious old parchments vanished. At hand was the very destruction of recorded knowledge! “King Alexander the Great did not have this Library built to lose it now!”, he explained to the city fathers. He went on to suggest, “What we know, once in the now burned books, must be written again creating books both new and old. We must find Zanzibar and his Zany Crew. My glimpse through the orbit meter/time machine reveals a future wherein the diffusion of the English language is as widespread as a fresh carpet of winter snow.” “Hurray!”, they shouted, “if many know English and we write so, the sentences, both new and old, may comprehensively grow!” This is a story recounted in a fanciful way using the true incident of the burning of the famous Library of Alexandria, Egypt, including its contents, more than two thousand years ago as a context. Joyfully in 2008, on the Egyptian coast of the Mediterranean Sea, the inauguration of the new Library of Alexandria was celebrated. The requirement of the Library to make available many texts, both new and old, is used in this book as a context for sharing the mechanics of English sentence construction. Join us as Zanzibar, appointed by the city leaders, finds the crew needed to construct and reconstruct the books, both new and old, of the ancient Library of Alexandria. This is the black and white version of the book.

Manhattan Mayhem

Herfavoriteshort story is "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place" by Ernest Hemingway,
because it says everything that needs to be said and evokes deep feeling and
understanding, and it does all that (in her opinion) in clean, well-lighted
sentences.

From Wall Street to Harlem, the borough of Manhattan is the setting for all-new stories of mystery, murder, and suspense, presented by best-selling author Mary Higgins Clark and featuring an exclusive Jack Reacher story by Lee Child, as well as other takes from top Mystery Writers of America authors. In Lee Child's “The Picture of the Lonely Diner,” legendary drifter Jack Reacher interrupts a curious stand-off in the shadow of the Flatiron Building. In Jeffery Deaver’s “The Baker of Bleecker Street,” an Italian immigrant becomes ensnared in WWII espionage. And in “The Five-Dollar Dress,” Mary Higgins Clark unearths the contents of a mysterious hope chest found in an apartment on Union Square. With additional stories from T. Jefferson Parker, S. J. Rozan, Nancy Pickard, Ben H. Winters, Brendan DuBois, Persia Walker, Jon L. Breen, N. J. Ayres, Angela Zeman, Thomas H. Cook, Judith Kelman, Margaret Maron, Justin Scott, and Julie Hyzy, Manhattan Mayhem is teeming with red herrings, likely suspects, and thoroughly satisfying mysteries.

A New And Innovative Approach To Teaching The Mechanics Of Writing -- Describes clearly each capitalization and punctuation convention, clarifying for -- Includes student writing samples demonstrating the convention used properly. -- Offers writing activities that feature the convention, giving student writers theThe evidence associated with writing performance across the United States shows a lack of conventional control in writing. The instructional reaction to the evidence has always been to ignore it or to worksheet it to death. This book provides a much-needed third alternative that features serious attention to the writer's craft in a thoughtful, constructive, and authentic manner.This book rests on the proposition that attention to capitalization and punctuation has failed to enhance young writers performances because the attention has not occurred in the context of the writers own writing. Therefore, this book is not only about writing conventions, it is also about teaching and learning in the context of young writers own writing.
