The Lexical Advantages of Narrow Reading for Second Language LearnersThe Lexical Advantages of Narrow Reading for Second Language Learners

Narrow reading is reading on the same topic over the course of a number of texts. One advantage of narrow reading is that readers become familiar with the topic and have much better background knowledge for future passages on that topic. Another advantage has to do with the mechanics of vocabulary distribution. Key words in topic-related passages tend to recur, easing the lexical burden on readers as they become familiar with this vocabulary. From a reading perspective, focusing on texts on a recurrent topic should give learners the chance to practice reading more quickly and fluently.

Biology Now

Written by a science journalist and teachers with over thirty years experience in the classroom, Biology Now skillfully blends core biology concepts with popular science stories of real people doing science today. These stories capture the human face of biology, highlighting the work of researchers and medical professionals who are making new discoveries every day. The text is accompanied by a wealth of carefully crafted pedagogy that teaches students how to analyze science in the news, interpret data, ask questions, and distinguish between science and pseudoscience.

Metaphor: A Computational Perspective

The literary imagination may take flight on the wings of metaphor, but hard-headed scientists are just as likely as doe-eyed poets to reach for a metaphor when the descriptive need arises. Metaphor is a pervasive aspect of every genre of text and every register of speech, and is as useful for describing the inner workings of a "black hole" (itself a metaphor) as it is the affairs of the human heart.

A Curriculum of Fear: Homeland Security in U.S. Public Schools

Welcome to Milton High School, where fear is a teacher’s best tool and every student is a soldier in the war on terror. A struggling public school outside the nation’s capital, Milton sat squarely at the center of two trends: growing fear of resurgent terrorism and mounting pressure to run schools as job training sites. In response, the school established a specialized Homeland Security program.

Color in the Classroom: How American Schools Taught Race, 1900-1954

Between the turn of the twentieth century and the Brown v. Board of Education decision in 1954, the way that American schools taught about "race" changed dramatically.

An Economic History of the World since 1400

Most of us have a limited understanding of the powerful role economics has played in shaping human civilization. This makes economic history - the study of how civilizations structured their environments to provide food, shelter, and material goods - a vital lens through which to think about how we arrived at our present, globalized moment.
