In accordance with the most recent findings of cognitive psychology and the applied science of learning, we believe that reading comprehension not only implies acquiring a set of highly complex, well-developed, and well-practiced skills and abilities, but also, as stated by the Texas Education Agency, most important is the mode in which good readers dynamically and deliberately coordinate these "skills" and "strategies" before, during, and after reading a text: *BEFORE READING, good readers tend to set goals for their reading. They note the structure, or organization of the text, and often create a mental overview or outline of the text to help them decide whether it is relevant to their goals. *DURING READING, good readers read words accurately and quickly, and simultaneously deal with the meanings of those words - as well as the meanings of the phrases and sentences into which the words are grouped. Good readers connect the meaning of one sentence to the meaning of another. If something is confusing to them, they use their background knowledge to try to clarify the meanings of words and phrases. Sometimes good readers interact with the text by asking themselves questions about its content and reflecting on its ideas. They are adept at using their background knowledge to make predictions about what might happen next and to understand ideas as they encounter them. Good readers continuously evaluate their predictions and revise them as needed. *AFTER READING, good readers often think about, or reflect on what they read. They may mentally summarize major points or events in the text, or even go to other sources to find additional information about the topic of the reading. In short, good readers are most often strategic readers. That is, they use a number of comprehension strategies to get meaning from text. Comprehension strategies are conscious plans or procedures that are under the control of a reader, who makes decisions about which strategies to use and when to use them.

David confronts his desires and his demons in this novel about what it means to be left behind—literally, figuratively, and spiritually—from the author of the Shade trilogy. Everyone mourns differently. When his older brother was killed, David got angry. As in, fist-meets-someone-else’s-face furious. But his parents? They got religious. David’s still figuring out his relationship with a higher power, but there’s one thing he knows for sure: The closer he gets to Bailey, the better, brighter, happier, more he feels. Then his parents start cutting all their worldly ties in preparation for the Rush, the divine moment when the faithful will be whisked off to Heaven…and they want David to do the same. David’s torn. He likes living in the moment, and isn’t sure about giving up his best friend, varsity baseball, and Bailey—especially Bailey—in hope of salvation. But when he comes home late from prom, and late for the Rush, to find that his parents have vanished, David is in more trouble than he ever could have imagined…

New Edition! 7 LESSONS 7 EXERCISES TO STOP YOUR CHATTERING MIND AND ENJOY LIVING IN THE NOW (Beginner's Workbook) THIS WORKBOOK FOR BEGINNERS (formerly known as "Understanding Eckhart Tolle Workbook") contains 7 basic lessons and 7 exercises you can apply NOW to begin to slow down and stop your "chattering mind" and begin to enjoy living in "The Now," an experience that will grant you inner peace and freedom from illusion starting TODAY. It presents the basic concepts, principles and methods behind the spiritual teachings of Eckhart Tolle, Dalai Lama, Krishnamuti and Meister Eckhart, among others, based on the premise that "In essence there is and always has been only one spiritual teaching, although it comes in many forms." This is truly a beginning workbook recommended for searchers of the Truth wanting to escape from illusion and experience the joyful inner peace that only brings Living in "The Now." The seven spiritual lessons and exercises you will find in this workbook are based on the following ancient premises: *Human suffering and unhappiness are produced by our "chattering mind," which unceasingly produces an inner dialogue or chatter, preventing us from experiencing the Now. *There is a way to slow down and stop our chattering mind. Once you learn how to do this, you too will be able to slow down and stop it when needed (especially when you sincerely need to stop it and end your distress and self-inflicted suffering. *You cannot stop your thoughts completely, nor is it desirable. Even enlightened beings need to live and interact with society, like all humans. *By actually slowing down your chattering mind, you can make them lose their power. Simply recognize them as "illusions," that is, products of a psychological phenomenon common among humans and allegedly known in India since prehistoric times: the phenomenon of mental illusion caused by what for thousands of years has been known as "the veil of Maya." *Only by breaking yourself free from this mental veil you can gradually awaken and free yourself from the psychological illusion that causes human suffering and unhappiness, opening the doors of your inner peace and discovering the joy of Living in the Now!
