In a collection of strips from the comic strip "FoxTrot," the Fox family copes with tofu, technology, iguanas, spring break, Harry Potter, Martha Stewart, a male-only family camping trip, Christmas, snowmen, boy bands, and music downloading.
Gathers examples from twenty years of the "FoxTrot" comic strip that emphasize Paige and Peter's difficulties with mathematics, science, and computers, Jason's extreme preoccupation with all aspects of the subjects, and related themes.
The twenty-seventh collection of "FoxTrot" comic strips continues to critique society's latest events and obsessions and documents the rivalry between Jason and Paige as well as Roger's efforts to monitor his hairline.
Jason Fox rules . . . his computer code, at calc and trig, and in whatever fantasy he happens to be headlining at the moment. Just because the rest of the Fox family-from older brother Peter and sister Paige to parents Roger and Andy-haven't quite accepted his Dominion Over All isn't cause for concern. Math geeks, Jason is convinced, will govern the earth, and he will lead the way. FoxTrotius Maximus: A FoxTrot Treasury, picks up on Jason's megalomania and runs with it . . . and it doesn't stop until readers are out of breath from laughing so hard. FoxTrotius Maximus combines the works Your Momma Thinks Square Roots Are Vegetables, Who's Up for Some Bonding, and Am I a Mutant or What? That means longtime FoxTrot readers and new fans alike are treated to Jason and his friend Marcus's never-ending antics, Andy's ongoing allergy fun, Peter's latest hot haircut, and a host of pop-culture trends and topics including music piracy, video games, and The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Timely, topical, and terribly funny! This latest FoxTrot treasury represents the ninth anthology of Amend's wildly successful comic strip, based upon the cartoonist's 17 previous books and his daily and Sunday syndicated appearances in more than 1,000 newspapers worldwide. FoxTrot truly is one of America's all-time favorite comics, and combined sales of nearly three million copies show that Amend knows how to capture and keep his audience's humor-loving attention. All hail, FoxTrotius Maximus!

This practical, engaging book introduces prospective and practicing teachers to K-12 content reading instruction. The Fifth Edition of this popular book includes an expanded, up-to-date focus on standards-based teaching and learning. Unlike any other book in the market, the content progresses from general practices, cycles, and settings of instruction, to units of instruction and specific lesson planning. Well-respected authors Dave Moore, Pat Cunningham, Sharon Moore, and Jim Cunningham speak to educators new to the idea of content area literacy instruction and focus on instruction that is aligned with state standards and tests, yet promote literacy that goes beyond that which is tested. Chapters on comprehension, vocabulary, writing, and studying include end-of-chapter applications that show how the practices apply to specific content areas such as science and mathematics.
