Jan Frazier, communication instructor. European Roots and Beyond. Parker, CO: Outskirts Press, 2011.

In this novel, stemming from the author’s own love of European travel, J.J. and her cousin, Sophie, travel to Europe to discover their German heritage. Their trip takes them through unexpected adventures — from a flight complication to getting stuck on a commuter train — but also provides them with rewarding experiences, including finding living relatives and discovering their ancestors’ homeland in Germany. The pair also travels through France to see the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame, but have trouble flushing toilets and finding hot water in the bathrooms.

Finally, they are off to Holland, which presents its own set of adventures, including getting trapped in the Red Light District of Amsterdam and finding themselves stuck in a Safari Park. Inspired by Frazier’s own European adventures and experiences, the book presents a real representation of Europe and the perils and promises of traveling there.

Jan Frazier, communication instructor, Transatlantic Voyage. Parker, CO: Outskirts Press, 2011.

In Jan Frazier’s ninth installment in the J.C. van Winkler series, readers find the 16-year-old protagonist and her friend, Smitty the ghost, in Ireland during the 1846 potato famine. Hoping to escape the blight, the pair board a ship filled with immigrants sailing to New York City. On the voyage, J.C. and Smitty learn of a murder onboard and begin searching for the perpetrator. Watching the destitute immigrants, helping with their perils, and befriending the O’Neals on board are all part of their plan.

They also must get four stowaways off the ship unnoticed and into the city. Once in New York, J.C. must get out of the city’s dangerous Five Points section. The search for a new location to live takes the characters up the Hudson River, through New England, and toward Chicago.

Dr. Joshua J. Lewer, associate professor of economics, Principles of Macroeconomics. San Diego, CA: Cognella Academic Publishing, 2012.

Principles of Macroeconomics provides economic information in a way that today’s students can relate to and understand. Each chapter provides core information about a given macroeconomics topic, but deeper meaning and color come from discussion questions, real-world examples, and topic-specific videos embedded within the manuscript.

Dr. Lewer writes, “I wrote this book because I have enjoyed teaching macroeconomics over the last 14 or so years and believe this to be a pivotal time for the United States and many other countries with respect to big-picture issues such as health care, national debt momentum, social programs, education, energy, openness, structural unemployment, and infrastructure. The field of macroeconomics has so much to offer society and we must make wise choices.”

Dr. Demetrice Anntía Worley, associate professor of English, Tongues in My Mouth: Poems by Demetrice Anntía Worley, Charlotte, NC: Mainstreet Rag, 2011.

In Demetrice Worley’s first book, the author explores a woman’s journey from isolation to social engagement through poetry. The poems address issues such as human violence, suffering, pain, and truth. Within the poems, Worley makes powerful statements about humanity, unity, and the human spirit. She refuses to shy away from uncomfortable topics like abuse, suicide, and political imprisonment, and she speaks genuinely and freely to paint provocative scenes and ideas.

Illinois poet laureate Kevin Stein, a Caterpillar Professor of English at Bradley, says, “Fraught with violence both verbal and physical, this is a survivor’s tale, revealing the ways we humans remain prisoners of our own silence and (mis)assumptions. Only when we risk the words to speak our lives into being … may we merge with our worldly sisters and brothers.”

Says poet Nikki Giovanni: “What an opus Demetrice Anntía Worley has created with Tongues in My Mouth. The stark and beautiful truths she explores are ones we ought to know and begin to view. This book needs to be on every desk. Thank you, Demetrice Anntía Worley, for your insight, for your bravery, for your soul stirring. Tongues in My Mouth is an important book.”

Dr. Kathleen A. Brosnan and Dr. Amy L. Scott. City Dreams and Country Schemes: Community and Identity in the American West. Reno, NV: University of Nevada Press, 2011.

From the time European-Americans began settling the American West, it has been shaped by the ideas and visions of those settlers. As they developed towns, the settlers used their cultural identities to make the best use of their physical and natural surroundings. The essays in City Dreams, Country Schemes look at urban development and tourism in the area’s national parks, among others, and the ways art, gender, and ethnicity helped form urban areas. The book examines the values and ideals of the settlers as the shaped the West and how the West affected their lives.

Says Char Miller, editor of Cities and Nature in the American West: “These essays have much to teach us about some of the dramatic changes that have transformed the American West over the past decades.”

Dr. John Alexander Williams, Department of History associate professor. Weimar Culture Revisited. New York, NY: Palgrave Macmillan, 2011.

Weimar Culture Revisited takes another look at the culture of Germany’s Weimar Republic (1919–1933). Historians and writers of the past characterized this culture as an unstable mixture of avant-garde experimentation, decadence, and proto-fascist tendencies. Williams says this limited definition of “culture” as a canon of works by elites hindered the study of everyday cultural forms.

This book, a collection of pieces by historians, literary and films scholars, and art historians, recovers the everyday by focusing on visual and political culture, transnational currents in the mass media, and the intense popular interest in sports, health, and nature in pre-World War II Germany. It attests to the multi-faceted nature of democracy in Germany between the two world wars.

Dr. John Orfe, temporary assistant professor of music and the Peoria Symphony Orchestra’s composer-in-residence, wrote a 25-minute piece for double chorus, soprano solo, organ, and 28-piece orchestra that was commissioned for a Vigil for Peace at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Peoria to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy.

Called In Memoriam, the piece is set to biblical texts from Psalms and Ecclesiastes. “Writing this piece became an act of service,” Orfe says. “Giving voice to the issues and emotions of 9/11 involves grappling with some of the weightier parts of human existence: terror, trauma, a desire for justice, hope, restoration, and resiliency.”

Dr. Orfe composed eight other pieces in 2011, won two national competitions, and performed as a concert pianist at venues around the world with his 20-member band Alarm Will Sound. Dr. Orfe holds a Bachelor of Arts in Religion from the University of Rochester, a Bachelor of Music from the Eastman School of Music, and three graduate degrees from the Yale School of Music, including a Doctorate of Musical Arts.

Dr. Wendy A. Schweigert, associate professor of psychology, Research Methods in Psychology: A Handbook, Third Edition. Long Grove, IL: Waveland Press, 2011.

This textbook provides ample information about the various methods of psychology research and can be used in many college classrooms to give students an idea of how to write, format, and publish results. Each chapter contains outlines, questions, and exercises, as well as terms and concepts meant to help students better conduct and write research in an ethical way. Students will be guided through the collecting and presenting of data, as well as the formatting and publishing of research.

The third edition has undergone significant changes. Every chapter and the appendix on APA Publication Style have been edited in an effort to improve clarity. In some cases, that has meant expanding topics or changing examples. Some chapters have been reorganized, and a new chapter on literature searches has been added.

Says Pavel Blagov, a psychology professor at Whitman College in Washington: “I was very pleased to receive this book. It covers all the necessary material very concisely and clearly. The amount of content, the clarity, the organization, and the price are just right.”

Dr. Jackie Hogan, Department of Sociology and Social Work chair. Lincoln, Inc.: Selling the Sixteenth President in Contemporary America. Lanham, MD: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2011.

When Dr. Jackie Hogan moved to Illinois, she found herself surprised by the widespread use of Abraham Lincoln’s image. The current Department of Sociology and Social Work chair saw Lincoln everywhere, in corn mazes, strip malls, billboards, and storefronts.

“As a sociologist, I began to wonder why we use Lincoln in such diverse ways and what our selling of the sixteenth president says about us,” Dr. Hogan says.

Those musings led to Dr. Hogan’s book Lincoln, Inc.: Selling the Sixteenth President in Contemporary America.

During her research, which allowed her to travel through Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky, Dr. Hogan learned that Lincoln is used to “sell” everything from diet soft drinks to romance novels to car insurance, as well as political, ideological, and moral agendas. While Lincoln has become all things to all people, she argues, some may have lost sight of what he did, said, and still could teach us.

Dr. Hogan says the book is as much about America as a country as the sixteenth president and that each generation of citizens sees Lincoln based on its ideals and values. She believes society sees in Lincoln the characteristics it hopes to see in itself.

“I argue that Lincoln has become a kind of Rorschach test, an image onto which we project our desires, our fears, our dirty little secrets,” she says. “In studying the use of Lincoln’s image, we learn something about ourselves as a nation.”

Dr. Cantú and Dr. McMullen focus on teaching and learning in the digital age. They trace the history of technology integration in the classroom, with particular focus on the current use of Web 2.0 applications and cloud-based technologies such as dashboards, wikis, blogs, Google apps, Bubbl.us, Flickr, Wordle, Delicious Bookmarks, YouTube, Jing screencasts, SurveyMonkey, Ribistar Quia, and Prezi.

The book concludes with an analysis of the role of technology in each of the disciplines of English/language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies in an effort to ensure the curriculum and instructional strategies used to teach each of these core subjects is relevant to students in the multicultural, information-rich, and digital world in which they live.

Dr. Kevin Finson, professor of teacher education, Dr. Christine Ormsbee, and Dr. Mary Jensen. Differentiating Science Instruction and Assessment for Learners with Special Needs, K–8. Thousand Oaks, CA: Corwin Press, 2011.

Differentiating Science Instruction and Assessment for Learners with Special Needs, K–8, aims to help teachers adapt science instruction to young students with special needs. The book explains the need for improved special education; shows general and special educators how to revise science activities and assessments for students with special needs, including those with ADD, ADHD, and autism spectrum disorders; and discusses appropriate ways of scoring and evaluating students with special needs. The authors concentrated on helping teachers apply these methods and theories to the classroom.

“This book provides practical guidance for teachers on ways to make science lessons accessible to all students. It contains a variety of vignettes, suggestions for revising written and printed materials for the spectrum of common learning disabilities, and suggested modifications in science lessons with sidebars that describe strategies and accommodations for students who face learning challenges in the regular classroom,” says Greg Stefanich, a professor of curriculum and instruction at the University of Northern Iowa.
