Ten years ago, Reading Power was launched in an elementary school in Vancouver. It has since evolved into a recognized approach to comprehension instruction being implemented across Canada, in the United States, United Kingdom, Sweden, and China. This ground-breaking approach showed teachers how to help students think while they read — connect, question, visualize, infer, and transform. Since the publication of the first edition of Reading Power, Adrienne Gear has continued to reflect on and refine her ideas about metacognition, comprehension instruction, and the Reading Power strategies. This revised and expanded edition shares these new understandings, and offers teachers new ideas, new lessons, and, of course, new anchor books to support the Reading Power principles. An ideal resource for teachers familiar to this strategic approach to teaching reading, or for those looking for new ways to connect thinking with reading.

Prayer counseling that breaks every yoke by Mark & Patti Virkler Have you ever prayed for healing of a heart wound and found that you experienced only partial healing, or perhaps no healing at all? If so, this book brings you hope! The heart has its own language that we must use if we want to bring healing to it. The language of the mind will not touch the deep places of the heart. And since a heart wound usually has multiple contributing causes, we need to use the right prayers to address each of these roots. The synergy of seven different prayers working together provides the spiritual energy necessary to release full, complete healing to the heart. This prayer counseling model has proven effective in thousands of lives. Biblical training on each of the seven prayers is given, along with worksheets which guide you easily through each prayer. These become a coach at your side. Extremely practical teaching on how to hear the voice of the Wonderful Counselor is included.
