5-0 out of 5 stars Bought It Because I Had To, Return To It Becaue I Want To
I had to buy this book as a required text for a class, but I found over the course of the semester that the information was relevant and presented in a user-friendly format. It's one of the few texts that I still use, although the class is long over. I have pages dog-eared and bookmarked for later use, as the book offers a lot of good ideas. It's one of those soothing books that makes education less daunting for the newbie.

5-0 out of 5 stars Nice overview of teaching
This book is a nice overview of teaching; covers all areas, including classroom management, language arts, English language learners, developing professionally, etc.

3-0 out of 5 stars Helpful, but too general
This is a great book.It helps by teaching you the basics.However, the book is too general and confusing.Most of the people in my class agree, it does not give us a definate answer to anything.

5-0 out of 5 stars The time-proven method for teaching children to read
At the end of my daughter's kindergarten class (she was 5) I was told by her school that she would probably start reading in first grade. Half way through first grade, I was told she was a little slow and not picking up things as fast as she could. At this point, I stepped in and taught my daughter to read using "Noah Websters' Blue Backed Speller" and "McGuffey's Readers."

"McGuffey's Readers" are a delight. I read the books cover to cover and loved every single story contained therein. These two literary tools [the Readers and the BB Speller] were how America learned to read for 150 years. And after *wasting* 18 months listening to reading "specialists" in public schools, *I* taught my daughter to read in under 6 weeks.

She is now in her sophomore year of college (honor student, too) and is a prolific reader.

I *highly* recommend McGuffey's Readers for any parent who wants to teach their child to read. It is a book you will keep forever, and it is something to be handed down to your children and their children and on and on.

And as a prior reviewer stated, they are a real keyhole peak into a bygone time. Plus, the stories are very moral and leave a strong [good!] impression on young minds.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have for Kids in Today's Society
I can't believe that this book was used in this country's public schools once upon a time!(It actually mentions God, although it doesn't ascribe to any one particular religion).It's values and lessons like these that once helped this nation become great.What else do you expect when its citizens are taught as young students to obey/respect adults, help the weak, speak gently, be honest, not backbite, not show-off, etc.?I feel that today's books are afraid to teach morals to our children, and the vocabulary and sentence structure in today's readers are too simplistic.I am thrilled with this find and am recommending it to everyone.I love the discussions that each passage sparks in my household and it's safe to say that my 8 yr old and 6 yr old sons are enjoying it as much as I am.

5-0 out of 5 stars Not just reading lessons!
The McGuffey's Revised Second and Third Eclectic Readers combine a number of lessons into one. They can be used for reading comprehension or as copybooks for improving handwriting skills. The numerous poems can be usedto improve memory skills. Furthermore, many of the lessons are focused onnature subjects such as birds, insects, farm animals, etc., and willsupplement a natural history text for teaching early scientificobservation. Most importantly, all the lessons are moral and help topreserve childhood innocence, something that is sorely needed in today'sworld. Filled with beautiful illustrations, these hardcover textbooks arean outstanding value. ... Read more

Product Description
Born into slavery in Virginia in the late 1700s, Dred Scott had little to look forward to in life. But he was fortunate in two ways: His first owner was fairly kind to him, and he grew up with his owner's children, forming friendships that he would come to depend on years later. For on April 6, 1846, Dred Scott and his wife, Harriett -- their ownership having changed hands several times during adulthood -- took the dangerous and courageous step to sue for their freedom, entering into legal battles that would last for eleven years. During this time Dred Scott would need all the help and support he could get -- from folks in the community all the way back to the people with whom he had been raised.

With a foreword by Dred Scott's great-grandson, Shelia P. Moses' stunning story chronicles Dred Scott's experiences as a slave, as a plaintiff in one of the most important legal cases in American history, and -- at last -- as a free man. Dred Scott's story is one of tremendous courage and fierce determination. His is a life that should be known by -- and should inspire -- all Americans. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I Hope Other Teachers Will Use this book-- We need more like it!
This book is prefaced with a touching forward by a great-grandson [John Madison Jr.] of Dred Scott.He sets up the reader beautifully for Shelia Moses' attempt to humanize the man behind the landmark Supreme Court case of the 1850s which denied Scot's humanity and that of all blacks.I agreed with Mr. Madison's opening concern "How would Shelia Moses write about [Scott, his wife and children] and tell their story?It occurred to me later that how she did it was not as important as simply telling his story..."

This story is simply told, and short--eighty pages of fairly large type--and yet rich with detail and information. Those who aren't familiar with him will learn that Scott was a slave who was taken to several free-states by his master, an army doctor, in the 1840s.In the 1850s, sympathic lawyers argued in countless cases, leading all the way up to the Supreme Court, that Scott should be a free man.When Justice Taney and the Supreme Court ruled against Scott,the nation, already embroiled in the slavery debate, was further polarized as it raced toward war.Although told through the first-person voice, I found Dred Scott remained distant and unknown in this book.That's not exactly a criticism.Perhaps Ms. Moses trusts her readers enough to leave us some of the hard work of trying to understand another human being and make meaning of their life for ourselves.I deeply appreciated that she does not project herself into Scott or shackle him with modern sensibilities and agendas as so many writers of adolescent historical fiction do.Through Moses' pen the reader really does feel that are listening to Scott himself-who I imagine was an unassuming man not prone to deep, emotional disclosure.

As a middle school history teacher I am always searching for (and, sadly, rarely finding) quality material which will bring history alive for my students and help them get into someone else's head.I plan to use this book as an anchor for our study of slavery.I think Julius Lester's sledge-hammer compilation of true slaves rememberances, To Be A Slave, would compliment this work nicely.Frederick Douglass autobiography would also be appropriate.I know Douglass should trump I Dred Scott but I'm going with this because of it's readability.

On the cover of this book is a painting in which Dred Scott peers out at us with a somewhat vacant but dignified gaze.His eyes seem to be inviting us to pause and look back and try to glimpse into his soul.The book, like the painting, does that for me.

John Madison Jr's preface ends with the appeal, "I hope that people all over the world will read and love the characters to which Shelia Moses has given so much love.I hope you will finish this book knowing that Dred Scott was different from the court ruling that said he was only one-fourth of a man.He was my great-grandfather-and the start of our legacy."

**I'll add student's reactions to this review after I try it with them.

5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting...
This is a great book if you hate reading dry history.It's the type of fictional narrative that will make someone like me actually read the REAL history on the case to get a more in-depth understanding. I thought the author did a great job of telling the story of a black man who after working continuously as a slave did not realize he spent much of his life in free territory.The numerous trials of free/not-free make for interesting reading and show just how tedious and nerve-racking freedom was. ...
