Secrets of a Civil War submarine :
ISBN: 9780739355121. OCLC Number: 144574587

Listening Library,. .

A little-known story of the Civil War is brought to life in this gripping work of nonfiction. When the Union blockade of all ports in the South stopped supplies from reaching the Confederate Army, Horace L. Hunley created a submarine that could sneak up on enemy ships and blow them up. After many years of trial and error, the H.L. Hunley succeeded in sinking the USS Housatonic in February of 1864. But the submarine never returned to port, and her crew perished in the Charleston Harbor. Although divers searched for more than 130 years, the submarine was not found until 1995. Over the last ten years, archaeologists have carefully raised the Hunley and painstakingly sifted through the 20,000 pounds of sediment it contained for artifacts and human remains and, ultimately, clues to why, when, and how the vessel sank.

. .

Today’s teachers, especially the many who work with students with special needs, are pressed to know a little something about everything. Expertise is needed in different content and pedagogical areas, but knowledge of different types of disabilities is required as well. Wendy Murawski and Kathy Lynn Scott have assembled another reader-friendly What Really Works resource full of experiences and evidence-based practices to empower any educator. Each chapter is presented in an easy-access and practical format suited for busy professionals. The editors and authors examine how special educational needs affect: content areas like reading and math; specialization areas like autism and learning disabilities; pedagogical areas like culturally responsive practices and accommodations; other critical areas like legal issues, behavior challenges, and home-school collaboration. As education trends promote the inclusion of students with exceptionalities, this book is the perfect resource for teachers and administrators who need to know what works…and what doesn’t. -- Provided by publisher.

Winnie followed Harry everywhere and slept under his cot every night. Before long, she became the regiment's much-loved mascot. But who could care for the bear when Harry went to battle? Harry found just the right place for Winnie--the London Zoo. There a boy named Christopher Robin played with Winnie--he could care for this bear too!"--
