Why do you have brown eyes, hairy fingers, dangly earlobes, or knuckles that crack? Are you a thrill-seeker, a people-person, a computer whizz, or a social wallflower with a morbid fear of spiders? And if so, who's to blame -- your parents or your genes? What Makes Me, Me? is an age-appropriate tour of the tricky subject of biology and how genetic make-up and experience makes everyone unique. Find out what genes and chromosomes are for, why some people are left-footed but right-eyed, and what it takes to become an Olympic athlete or a chess grand master. Diagrams, illustrations, updated images, and the easy-to-understand text in What Makes Me, Me? makes this difficult subject digestible, while tests and quizzes create a personal experience allowing children to see how the information relates to themselves.

Lam Rim 3 Volume 3 introduces the medium scope of the spiritual path, aligned with Buddha’s famous Four Noble Truths: ordinary life is in nature suffering, there are specific causes for that suffering, these can be eliminated, and one can follow a reliable method and arrive at liberation, the state free of suffering. Lam Rim, the graduated path – or roadmap – to enlightenment, is a foundational teaching of Tibetan Buddhism, outlining the progression of spiritual practices needed to attain full enlightenment, by breaking it down into three scopes: initial, medium and Mahayana. Based on the Liberation in the Palm of your Hand, an oral teaching by the famous Pabongka Rinpoche, Gelek Rimpoche, with characteristic wit and humor, lays out the path in easy-to understand every day terms – a lam rim teaching for our times.

What are "essential questions," and how do they differ from other kinds of questions? What's so great about them? Why should you design and use essential questions in your classroom? Essential questions (EQs) help target standards as you organize curriculum content into coherent units that yield focused and thoughtful learning. In the classroom, EQs are used to stimulate students' discussions and promote a deeper understanding of the content. Whether you are an Understanding by Design (UbD) devotee or are searching for ways to address standards--local or Common Core State Standards--in an engaging way, Jay McTighe and Grant Wiggins provide practical guidance on how to design, initiate, and embed inquiry-based teaching and learning in your classroom. Offering dozens of examples, the authors explore the usefulness of EQs in all K-12 content areas, including skill-based areas such as math, PE, language instruction, and arts education. As an important element of their backward design approach to designing curriculum, instruction, and assessment, the authors *Give a comprehensive explanation of why EQs are so important; *Explore seven defining characteristics of EQs; *Distinguish between topical and overarching questions and their uses; *Outline the rationale for using EQs as the focal point in creating units of study; and *Show how to create effective EQs, working from sources including standards, desired understandings, and student misconceptions. Using essential questions can be challenging--for both teachers and students--and this book provides guidance through practical and proven processes, as well as suggested "response strategies" to encourage student engagement. Finally, you will learn how to create a culture of inquiry so that all members of the educational community--students, teachers, and administrators--benefit from the increased rigor and deepened understanding that emerge when essential questions become a guiding force for learners of all ages.

How can the sixty-six books of the Bible have a single message for us today? What unites the vastly different accounts of God's work in the world? How do the various genres of the Bible work together? Vaughan Roberts believes that the Bible tells a single story for all time. He draws out the Bible's message of Jesus Christ and God's redemption through him in six big questions: Who rules the world? What does it mean to be human? How should we view money? Is a perfect relationship possible? How does the Holy Spirit work in the world and in our lives? What is God's plan for the world? This companion volume to Roberts's previous book, God's Big Picture, will not only help you answer these questions, but also give you tools to transform your own Bible study in light of the whole story of God.

The best-selling author of Awakening the Buddha Within addresses life's most provocative and tantalizing questions simply, directly, and powerfully. Every life is a journey through the unknown. Along the way, however, we tend to encounter the same perplexing questions again and again. Some are cosmic enigmas that have always tested the human mind: What is my purpose in life? What happens after I die? Others are puzzles presented by daily life in modern society: What, if anything, justifies assisted suicide? What is my personal responsibility to the homeless? According to Lama Surya Das, one of the foremost Western Buddhist scholars and teachers, the more we seek to resolve these mysteries, the more fully we live. Along with his own personal beliefs, the author presents a variety of thoughtful points of view representing different schools of Buddhism, other religions, spirituality in general, and pragmatism. The Big Questions challenges readers in the most stimulating and thoughtful way to formulate individual, authentic responses to life's big questions.

After her parents find clashing answers to life’s big questions, it’s time for Octavia to make some choices of her own in this poignant, funny, thought-provoking novel. Octavia’s best friend, Andrew, wants to know why time runs forward instead of backward, or if it’s possible to talk to an alien jellyfish. Octavia has much bigger questions on her mind: Why do bad things happen, like Hurricane Katrina and 9/11? What is the meaning of life? Is there a God? Octavia’s artist father, Boone, is convinced that Henry David Thoreau holds the key. Meanwhile, her mother, Ray, has always been seeking the larger meaning of life—until now. Not only have Octavia’s parents come up with different answers to the big questions, but their answers are threatening to tear her family apart. Could it be that some questions are too big to have just one answer? Could it be that the universe is far wider than Octavia’s—or perhaps anyone’s—views of it?
