The 1960's: Rebels

by Dorothy Hoobler Tom Hoobler

THIS SEVENTH VOLUME OF THE Century Kids follows two rebels--in the best sense of the word. The first is Chuck, the great-great-grandson of the patriarch, Lionel Aldrich, whose family we have followed through five generations of the twentieth century. His rebellion, so typical of the decade, is against unfair authority. The second rebel is Sojie, who takes a stand against the established practice of the times as she returns with her mother to the South to participate in a lunch-counter demonstration demanding equal service for blacks. Both young people typify the awakening social consciousness that characterized the decade. AS IN THE EARLIER CENTURY KIDS volumes, the events and artifacts of the decade provide a backdrop for the narrative. The 1960s are a particularly inspiring decade with the growing success of Dr. Martin Luther King's nonviolent protest movement--yet it was a tragic decade as well, as young idealists grow to admire young President John F. Kennedy, only to see him brutally assassinated. IN ADDITION TO AN EXCITING STORY, the Hooblers provide an historical afterword, explaining some of the more interesting aspects of their research into the decade, as well as a timeline outlining what was going on in the world in which the story unfolds.

21st-Century Counselors: New Approaches to Mental Health & Substance Abuse

by Camden Flath

Many people around the country deal with problems of mental illness and substance abuse, as well as trouble with finding work, communicating with family members, or being bullied at school. The demand for counselors and psychologists who can give support to individuals dealing with these issues and their families is on the rise. The young adults of today will be the job force of tomorrow, so choosing a career that will best fit with the needs of the changing world will be important to job satisfaction and a successful life. With the vast array of career and job options, it will also be important for young adults to understand which work will be the best match for their interests, talents, goals, and personality types. Certain careers are expected to gain importance within the early decades of the twenty-first century. According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in counseling is expected to grow faster than the average rate for all occupations. As attitudes change about mental health, addiction, and emotional well-being, particularly in the level of open discussion surrounding these topics, more people are turning to counselors and psychologists for assistance. Are you ready to help?

3-D Engineering

by Vicki V. May

How did somebody come up with the idea for bridges, skyscrapers, helicopters, and nightlights? How did people figure out how to build them? In 3D Engineering: Design and Build Your Own Prototypes, young readers tackle real-life engineering problems by figuring out real-life solutions. Kids apply science and math skills to create prototypes for bridges, instruments, alarms, and more. Prototypes are preliminary models used by engineers--and kids--to evaluate ideas and to better understand how things work. Engineering design starts with an idea. How do we get to the other side of the river? How do we travel long distances in short times? Using a structured engineering design process, kids learn how to brainstorm, build a prototype, test a prototype, evaluate, and re-design. Projects include designing a cardboard chair to understand the stiffness of structural systems and designing and building a set of pan pipes to experiment with pitch and volume. Creating prototypes is a key step in the engineering design process and prototyping early in the design process generally results in better processes and products. 3D Engineering gives kids a chance to figure out many different prototypes, empowering them to discover the mechanics of the world we know.

3-D Geometric Origami

by Rona Gurkewitz Bennett Arnstein

This innovative book -- among the first to combine the art of origami with making polyhedra-based models -- shows papercrafters how to create over 60 different polyhedral from origami units. Comprised of modules made of single sheets of paper, the figures offer model builders and math students alike a stimulating entrée into the world of three-dimensional geometric origami.Origamists are initially introduced to a number of preliminary folds that will aid in constructing a variety of figures. Step-by-step instructions and clearly outlined diagrams then show how to create polyhedral ranging from a relatively simple tetrahedron and cube to such mind-boggling fabrications as the double pentagonal pyramid, a truncated hexadecahedron and the 92-faced snub dodecahedron. You'll also learn to construct these intriguing polyhedral: a stellated icosahedron, an equilateral triangle dodecahedron, and a truncated octahedron.Graded according to difficulty, these multifaceted projects will not only challenge devotees of the ancient Japanese art of paper folding but will be useful in classroom demonstrations of mathematical principles.
