Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are intelligent children. They are charming, and resourceful, and have pleasant facial features. Unfortunately, they are exceptionally unlucky.

In the first two books alone, the three youngsters encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune, a lumpy bed, a deadly serpent, a large brass reading lamp, a long knife, and a terrible odour.

In the tradition of great storytellers, from Dickens to Dahl, comes an exquisitely dark comedy that is both literary and irreverent, hilarious and deftly crafted. Never before has a tale of three likeable and unfortunate children been quite so enchanting, or quite so uproariously unhappy.

About The Author

To the uninitiated, his name may sound more like dessert than good reading; but Lemony Snicket (known to communicate through emissary Daniel Handler, shown here) is a star author to readers who are hooked on his gloomy A Series of Unfortunate Events books. You never know what will happen to those poor Baudelaire orphans next -- only that whatever it is, it's going to be a head-shaking shame.

In the early 1930's, rural schools spotted the landscape of Alberta, Canada. Serving children from grades one through nine, these one-roomed country schools traditionally had teachers who had themselves attended a one-roomed school, and were familiar with the one-classroom environment. However in the mid 1930's, city-schooled teachers, who were unfamiliar with the one-classroom environment, began to teach in these rural schools. Frances A. Clark, born in 1920, was one such teacher, and her collection of stories will delight and amuse you. A peek into the past, Frances provides us with a charming yet informative and detailed account of what life and education were like during the time she taught at these schools, from 1939-1945. A invaluable and exceptional resource.

This accessible how to text is about classroom interaction - how to study it and how to use that knowledge to improve teaching and learning. Actually showing what critical, constructionist, sociocultural perspectives on teaching, learning, and schooling are and what they can do, it makes discourse analysis understandable and useful to teachers and other nonlinguists.


Using Discourse Analysis to Improve Classroom Interaction:



  • offers teachers the powerful tools of discourse analysis as a way of understanding the complex dynamics of human interaction that constitute effective, equitable teaching and learning



  • guides readers step-by-step through how to build their interactional awareness to improve their teaching



  • includes Try It Out exercises to engage readers in learning how to respond to the social dynamics of their classrooms for the purpose of improving classroom interaction.



Proceeding from simple illustrations to more complex layering of analytical concepts, short segments of talk, transcribed to highlight important points, are used to explain and illustrate the concepts. By the time readers get to the complicated issues addressed in this text they are ready to deal with some of teaching's toughest challenges and have the tools to build positive relationships among their students so that all can participate equally in the classroom.
