Now Jesse has returned to his home to live with his widowed mother and two younger sisters. All hope lies on the Cherokee chief, John Ross, who is in Washington, D.C., trying to delay the Removal. Then one night, family members are suddenly awakened, dragged from their homes, and brought at gunpoint to a stockade camp. From there, Jesse and his family are forced to march westward on the horrifying Trail of Tears during the long, cold winter months. It's a difficult journey west, and Jesse's not sure if he and his family can survive the journey.
Wheeler-Toppen, a science teacher and children's author, presents 12 inquiry-based classroom lessons to help middle school teachers improve students' reading abilities and teach science content at the same time. Each lesson consists of a science activity, a reading about an important life science concept (easier to follow than those typically found in textbooks), an application that asks students to connect the activity with what they read, and a reading comprehension exercise, such as previewing illustrations, identifying text structures, and context clues to the meanings of new words. Each lesson also includes a graphic organizer and a writing activity. Six of the lessons ask students to make a claim and support it with evidence, and an introductory chapter suggests activities to help students understand claims and evidence.
Nancy and her friends need more than book smarts to get to the bottom of a literary mystery in this fourth book of the Nancy Drew Diaries, a new take on the classic series. A rash of crimes in a neighboring town--a blazing fire at a bookstore, a boat that sinks in the harbor, and a valuable dog's dognapping--are eerily similar to the plots from famous mystery writer Lacey O'Brien's popular books. So who's behind the crimes? Could it be Lacey looking for publicity? One of Lacey's superfans? Or maybe it's Paige Samuels, owner of the bookstore that burned. Nancy, Bess, and George will have to read between the lines as they dig deep into a dangerous mystery.

Can Cat save the day--and get rid of all those toads? This is an enchanting fractured fairy tale from acclaimed Mother-Daughter Book Club author Heather Vogel Frederick.
