Pediatrician Nadine Burke Harris explains that the repeated stress of abuse, neglect and parents struggling with mental health or substance abuse issues has real, tangible effects on the development of the brain. This unfolds across a lifetime, to the point where those who’ve experienced high levels of trauma are at triple the risk for heart disease and lung cancer.

Literacy for College Success – Simple Book Publishing

(View Complete Item Description)

This book is a compilation of four primary texts, which we significantly remixed and edited, as well as original compositions of our own. The basis for the organization and the majority of the first two chapters of this book are adapted from Fran Bozarth’s Reading & Writing for Learning. Bozarth’s opening chapter provides a clear focus for students entering college—they must create a basis for learning. We supplemented these chapters with material and activities from both Marken and Martinez, et al., which are comprehensive courses dedicated to helping students learn strategies for success in academia. Unit 2 is Bozarth’s work on vocabulary skills, with a few edits and a bit of composition from us. We used portions of Babin, et al. to develop Unit 3, which directs students to analysis and reflection on literary texts, necessary skills for moving forward in college courses. The final chapters go back to material from Bozarth, but also contain significant original contributions of our own, with a unique activity provided by our colleague Heather Kanicki. The course finishes with a focus on comprehending authorship and authority, literacy, and persuasion in academic/professional texts.
