What If All the Kids are White Book Description :

In this compelling volume, distinguished educators tackle a frequently asked question about multicultural education: How do I teach about racial and cultural diversity if all my students are white? The authors propose seven learning themes to help young white children resist messages of racism and build identity and skills for thriving in a multicultural country and world. The text includes strategies, resources, and classroom examples for implementing the learning themes in early childhood settings. Taking multicultural education to a new level, this practical guide places the development of white children's racial identity in the context of the historical construction of "whiteness" and racism in America, and suggests strategies for nurturing a new white identity as the starting place for anti-bias/multicultural work with children. It includes activities for families and staff, reflection questions, a review of white anti-racism activists, lists of suggested children's books, and organizational and website resources.

Heart Rate Slowing by IF Current Inhibition Book Description :

This book unfolds the history of the discovery of the transmembrane channel which is responsible for the 'funny' or If current, the primary modulator of heart rate. Inhibition of this current leads to slowing of the heart rate, which is an important component of the successful management of angina pectoris. Recently, Ivabradine, a specific and selective inhibitor of the If current, has been developed as an antianginal agent which has been shown to be at least as effective as both beta-blockers and calcium channel blockers for the treatment of angina. The development, efficacy and complications of this therapy are discussed in detail in this book. Furthermore, the clinical benefits from heart rate reduction in patients with coronary artery disease and heart failure and in patients after myocardial infarction are examined. Whether a lower heart rate per se will prolong life is not yet known, but it may offer a new and important life-saving strategy. The current data presented in this volume will be appreciated by cardiologists and general physicians interested in the modern management of angina pectoris and by electrophysiologists and physiologists who would like to understand the importance of heart rate and its regulation.

If Book Description :

Adolescence is one of the most challenging times of our lives — and, of course, the most fun. What do teens want to know about and ask about? It may be friends, TV, school, romance, music, peer pressure, cliques, proms, parties, gossip, parents, food, hair, videos, shopping, sports, card, the future — just to name a few. And there is nothing more fun for teens than asking friends and schoolmate questions about all these things. With the same imaginative zeal that has made the If series so wildly popular, Evelyn MacFarlane and James Saywell engage teems with question such as: If you could pick any three friends to go to college with, whom would you take? If you could start a new fashion trend a school, what style would you propose? If you could have any one super power, what would you choose? If you were stranded on an island and could have one CD, movie, and book — what would they be? If you could have starred in any music video in history, which would you pick?
