THE PROFILE SERIES

For students from junior high school to high school and beyond, the truly user-friendly Profile provides a plethora of potent and compelling sociological, historical and pedagogical data, statistical and non-statistical. Instead of merely gathering vital data about a person in bits and pieces, the Profile allows an in-depth analysis of the individual in question so that a multi-faceted profile of self emerges, one which clearly highlights and explains a number of that person’s specific academic, personal strengths/weaknesses, behavior commonalities, belief systems, career potentials, relationship matches, neurodiversity characteristics, and the like. It will help the individual be the best s/he can be intellectually, emotionally and spiritually.

READING/WRITING SERIES

Grammar Games

Grammar GamesGrammathletes, get ready to train rigorously! Grammar Games is unlike any other book you have experienced, to date. Yes, grammar is basically a series of rules, but those rules need not seem arbitrary, confusing, or useless. Grammar is a set of rules for the surprisingly winnable “game” of writing. Filled with colorful illustrations and amusing, student-approved sample text, and fun bloopers, Grammar Games clarifies and simplifies grammar in a way you may never have imagined to be possible. You will overcome your writing anxiety as you discover that grammar is the opposite of your worst fears: grammar is simple, sensible, and “doable.” It is a game to be played, won and enjoyed. Laugh as you learn.

Turning Points Challenge

Turning Points

The first-ever writing book to explain and embrace the true depth of the multi-sensory reading-writing connection and to alter the progression through which these particular first- and second-language skills are taught. For years now, schools have inexplicably treated reading and writing as entirely different subjects. The simple truth is multi-sensory reading and writing are profoundly related: you cannot succeed in one without the other. Once you are attuned to that, your comprehension, expressive and testing abilities will flourish in any subject or language and for whatever purpose. With TPC, you will finally have access to the library of writing models the “good writers” you admire keep in mind. More than that, each of these examples includes detailed, step-by-step explanations and instructions, guiding you through the writing process, from the planning stages to the finished product. Also, read charts, graphs and tables easily.

Money Word$

Money Words

This watershed book will finally make vocabulary acquisition fun and genuinely meaningful, so that we do not just remember words for tests and forget most of them within 24 hours or less, which helps neither the student nor the teacher. Rather, we let them steadfastly enrich our lives. While many people have a “functional” knowledge of vocabulary, our goal in Money Word$ is to create a generation of lively philologists—masters of language who fluidly live and breathe words. What follows has been years in the making and represents an immediate, engaging and innovative way to learn, to share and to cherish new vocabulary.
