Two leading science educators provide a comprehensive, state-of-the-field analysis of current trends in the research, policy, and practice of science education. This book offers valuable insights into why gaps in science achievement among racial, ethnic, cultural, linguistic, and socioeconomic groups persist, and points toward practical means of narrowing or eliminating these gaps. Lee and Buxton examine instructional practices, science curriculum materials (including computer technology), assessment, teacher education, school organization, federal and state policies, and home-school connections. The book synthesized the emerging body of research in the field of science education and its application to practice and policy and features an analysis of major science education initiatives, interventions, and programs that have been successful with non-mainstream students.
On November 1, 2014, at 3:06 am, Joe Mayberry left his broken, earthly body and went home, escorted by a band of angels. While this may sound like an ordinary story of an ordinary Christian finally receiving their Heavenly reward, I assure you it is anything but. The story I have to tell you will frustrate you, inspire you, bring you to tears, and make you shout hallelujah! - Much the same way that Joe did when he was with us. I only knew him for 15 months, but the impact he had on me will last a lifetime. As I sat with him in those final days I prayed again and again for God to use the experience to bring others to him. God honored that request - this is the result.This is a story about the bondage of addiction and the powerful impact of fervent prayers. It is about hope, deliverance, and salvation through Jesus Christ.Addiction is an all-consuming, possessive, jealous spouse and it does not leave room for anything else, but we serve a God who is greater, who will do "whatever it takes" for us to be saved.
