Black Jacks: African American Seamen in the Age of Sail
Harvard University Press | May 3, 1997 | ISBN-10: 0674076249 | 352 pages | PDF | 1.4 Mb

Few Americans, black or white, recognize the degree to which early African American history is a maritime history. W. Jeffrey Bolster shatters the myth that black seafaring in the age of sail was limited to the Middle Passage. Seafaring was one of the most significant occupations among both enslaved and free black men between 1740 and 1865.

Great Teachers: How to Raise Student Learning in Latin America and the Caribbean (Latin American Development Forum)

Great Teachers: How to Raise Student Learning in Latin America and the Caribbean (Latin American Development Forum) by Barbara Bruns
English | Oct. 28, 2014 | ISBN: 1464801517 | 375 Pages | PDF | 5 MB

The seven million teachers of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) are the critical actors in the region's efforts to improve education quality and raise student learning levels, which lag far behind those of OECD countries and East Asian countries such as China. This book documents the high economic stakes around teacher quality, benchmarks the current performance of LAC's teachers, and delineates the key issues. These include low standards for entry into teacher training, poor quality training programs that are detached from the realities of the classroom, unattractive career incentives, and weak support for teachers once they are on the job.
