              Richard II: Large Print
               

              Richard II: Large Print (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The play spans only the last two years of Richard's life, from 1398 to 1400. The first Act begins with King Richard sitting majestically on his throne in full state, having been requested to arbitrate a dispute between Thomas Mowbray and Richard's cousin, Henry Bolingbroke, later... Henry IV, who has accused Mowbray of squandering money given to him by Richard for the king's soldiers and of murdering Bolingbroke's uncle, the Duke of Gloucester. Bolingbroke's father, John of Gaunt, 1st Duke of Lancaster, meanwhile, believes it was Richard himself who was responsible for his brother's murder. After several attempts to calm both men, Richard acquiesces and it is determined that the matter be resolved in the established method of trial by battle between Bolingbroke and Mowbray, despite the objections of Gaunt.The tournament scene is very formal with a long, ceremonial introduction, but as the combatants are about to fight, Richard interrupts and sentences both to banishment from England. Bolingbroke is originally sentenced to ten years' banishment, but Richard reduces this to six years upon seeing John of Gaunt's grieving face, while Mowbray is banished permanently.

On their mini-adventure, they discover two kinds of grasshoppers, a dragonfly, and a damselfly among other animals and even a clue to an anonymous visitor (raccoon tracks). They are able to specifically name the creatures because of their intimate encounters. Along the way, they collect field notes, photos, and nature's treasures.

              The Federalist Papers
                

              The Federalist Papers (EPUB ebook)

              By Hamilton, Alexander; Madison, James; Jay, John

              Eighty-five articles and essays by Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, and James Madison that interpret and promote the US Constitution. Three of America's Founding Fathers-Alexander Hamilton, General George Washington's chief of staff and first secretary of the treasury; John Jay, the... first chief justice of the United States; and James Madison, father of the Constitution, author of the Bill of Rights, and fourth president of the United States-embarked on an anonymous public relations campaign to promote the ratification of the US Constitution. Beginning in 1787, their articles appeared in three New York newspapers: The Independent Journal, the New-York Packet, and the Daily Advertiser. Written under the pseudonym Publius, their writings were a masterful analysis and interpretation of the Constitution, explaining the principles upon which the US government was founded. To this day, the Federalist Papers remain "an authoritative resource for academics, lawyers, and judges-including Supreme Court justices-to use to interpret the Constitution and to determine its original, or historic, meaning" (National Constitution Center).

              After realizing children no longer were given black history assignments and projects I made the decision to truly teach my children about the people that paved the way for them to follow their dreams. Following the lead of my own mother whom never allowed me to report on the wide...ly known black history legends, I chose to give information about people many have never heard of. Black History's Unsung Royalty A - Z has a different king or queen for each letter of the alphabet. From Angela Davis to Zelda Valdes.

              In the general activity and uprising of ideal interests which every one with an eye for fact can discern all about us in American life, there is perhaps no more promising feature than the fermentation which for a dozen years or more has been going on among the teachers. In whatev...er sphere of education their functions may lie, there is to be seen among them a really inspiring amount of searching of the heart about the highest concerns of their profession. The renovation of nations begins always at the top, among the reflective members of the State, and spreads slowly outward and downward. The teachers of this country, one may say, have its future in their hands. The earnestness which they at present show in striving to enlighten and strengthen themselves is an index of the nation's probabilities of advance in all ideal directions. The outward organization of education which we have in our United States is perhaps, on the whole, the best organization that exists in any country. The State school systems give a diversity and flexibility, an opportunity for experiment and keenness of competition, nowhere else to be found on such an important scale. The independence of so many of the colleges and universities; the give and take of students and instructors between them all; their emulation, and their happy organic relations to the lower schools; the traditions of instruction in them, evolved from the older American recitation-method (and so avoiding on the one hand the pure lecture-system prevalent in Germany and Scotland, which considers too little the individual student, and yet not involving the sacrifice of the instructor to the individual student, which the English tutorial system would seem too often to entail), -all these things (to say nothing of that coeducation of the sexes in whose benefits so many of us heartily believe), all these things, I say, are most happy features of our scholastic life, and from them the most sanguine auguries may be drawn
