The United Stories of America Book Description :

This book discusses the American short story composite, or short story cycle, a neglected form of writing consisting of autonomous stories interlocking into a whole. This study takes into consideration, to a greater degree than earlier criticism, the short story composite as an open work, emphasizing the tension between the independent stories and the unified work, between the discontinuity and fragmentation, on the one hand, and the totalizing strategies, on the other. The discussion of the genre is illustrated with references to numerous American short story composites.

The Logic of Biochemical Sequencing Book Description :

The Logic of Biochemical Sequencing examines how to determine the primary structures of proteins and DNA and use them to stimulate the process of logical problem-solving. It concentrates on sequencing work and stresses the thought processes needed to make sense of what might otherwise be indecipherable data. The book also introduces "biocryptography," which serves as a basis for four short stories that use the results of sequence determinations to provide clues to higher order problems. Problems in the book range from elementary to difficult, and solutions to all problems are provided, many of them completely worked out. The book is an excellent supplementary text for students in a full-year biochemistry course, as well as for biochemists and molecular biologists.

  • ISBN : 0857003151

Getting the Picture Book Description :

Young people with communication difficulties often struggle in social situations, as without adequate inference, narrative and sequencing skills, correctly interpreting and responding to other people can be a real challenge. This fully photocopiable resource has been designed to improve these skills in the way this population can often learn best – visually. This book is brimming with thought-provoking illustrations of different people in different places, all of which are accompanied by a series of questions designed to encourage prediction and inference skills. Participants are asked to consider everything from who the person in the picture is, what they might be doing, and where they might be going, to how they may be feeling and why. Questions can either be completed individually or brainstormed as a group, and there are three types of illustration to work with – single person, picture sequence, or large scenes containing several interactions. The final section teaches important sequencing skills by providing muddled picture narratives that need to be ordered. This book will be a valuable tool for speech and language therapists/pathologists, occupational therapists, special educators, parents and anybody else looking to help young people with communication difficulties to understand and connect with the world around them.
