We all say that we care about children. We all know that millions of children around the world, including in the United States, are suffering physically, materially, and emotionally and are unable to reach their full potential. Moreover, their material deprivation and physical ills often prevent them from responding to the gospel. Most of us conclude that we cannot do anything significant to help the impoverished children living in our own backyards let alone those living in the slums of Nairobi or the hinterlands of Haiti. We can, however, do much to improve their lives materially and spiritually. Through praying, giving generously, sponsoring children, volunteering with aid organizations, living more simply, investing and shopping more prudently, and advocating more zealously in the political arena, we can make a difference. We can prod politicians, business executives, and church leaders to prioritize aiding destitute children. We can support one of the hundreds of organizations that are working effectively to help indigent children have better lives. Suffer the Children describes the plight of poor children and provides many practical ways we can participate in one of the most important crusades to improve our world.

Of the approximately 50 million public school students in the United States, more than half are in urban schools. A contemporary companion to City Kids, City Teachers: Reports from the Front Row, this new and timely collection has been compiled by four of the country’s most prominent urban educators. Contributors including Sandra Cisneros, Jonathan Kozol, Sapphire, and Patricia J. Williams provide some of the best writing on life in city schools and neighborhoods. Young people and practicing teachers, poets and scholars, social critics and journalists offer unique takes on topics ranging from culturally relevant teaching and scripted curricula to the criminalization of youth, gentrification, and the inequities of school funding. In the words of Sonia Nieto, City Kids, City Schools “challenge[s] the conventional wisdom of what it means to teach in urban schools.”

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Reviving Ophelia, Another Country, and The Shelter of Each Other comes an inspirational book that shows how words can change the world.

Writers can change the way we think and transform our definitions of right and wrong. Writing to Change the World is a beautiful paean to the transformative power of words. Encapsulating Mary Pipher's years as a writer and therapist, it features rousing commentary, personal anecdotes, memorable quotations, and stories of writers who have helped reshape society.

The newest addition to the Master Student program provides a collection of contemporary readings for self-reflection and critical thinking. Structured in a way that exposes students to a variety of reading and writing styles, the Master Student Reader excerpts work from a variety of sources including student writing, textbooks, magazines, newspapers, web sites, essays, and speeches. An emphasis on journal writing provides students with a means to self assess, while additional writing requirements—such as persuasive essays, fact or opinion papers, and research papers—help students take a more traditional approach to developing critical-thinking skills. Power Process articles motivate and encourage students to take charge of their college experience. Reflection Questions stimulate in-class discussion and can be used as writing prompts. Writing Assignments get students thinking about audience, purpose, and length of an essay, and help them analyze the information they have learned. Journal Entries (Discovery and Intention Statements) allow students to reflect specifically on their personal feelings, identify new information that they have discovered in the articles, and think about how to apply these ideas in other courses and in life. Mastering Vocabulary prompts students to identify and define new vocabulary words. Additional Activities include exercises for working with classmates, alternative projects and out-of-the-box activities for students to explore their campus.
