Danger at the Rodeo

Press Release [ Thu Apr 14 2016 1:15 PM ]

Karen Glinski, retired hot-air balloon pilot, will be at Page One Books at 2:30pm on Sunday, April 17, to talk about and sign her young-adult book, Danger at the Rodeo.

The book is described as such: "This exciting young adult book is the second to feature Emerson, his dog Lucky and his grandpa Charlie, a Navajo elder. This time, all three are headed to a week-long rodeo but instead of fun, they are plucked headlong into a criminal coping scandal and Lucky is stolen. Emerson begins a race against time to save his beloved dog and expose the criminal before they get him!"

Glinski was born in Yokohama, Japan, and grew up the oldest of six children in a military family. She majored in Anthropology at UNM, where she formed a life-long interest in the Native American cultures of the Southwest. She shares her Albuquerque home with two miniature dachshunds, Mr. Bojangles and Wee Willie Winkie. A retired hot-air balloon pilot, Glinski spends her time working, writing and training her doxies in rally and scent discrimination. Danger at the Rodeo is her second published book and the sequel to Stranded at Sheep Camp. She is working on the third book in this series, The Badge of Honor.

Page One Books is located at 5850 Eubank NE, Suite B-41, in Albuquerque's Mountain Run Shopping Center (southeast corner of Eubank and Juan Tabo). The Glinski event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit www.page1book.com.

Teaching Across Cultural Strengths

Press Release [ Tue Apr 5 2016 1:00 PM ]

UNM Associate Professor Alicia Chávez will be at the UNM Bookstore on Thursday, April 7, at 12pm to sign copies of Teaching Across Cultural Strengths (Stylus, 2016).

In Teaching Across Cultural Strengths, Chávez suggests that an imbalance in the teaching and learning situation exists when the teacher teaches from one cultural perspective and the student's primary learning experiences come from another cultural perspective. To enhance the possibility that the student will master the learning situation and achieve its deep objectives, it is important that college teachers expand their cultural reach and include multicultural perspectives in the teaching and learning situations. Teaching Across Cultural
Strengths offers a comprehensive set of guidelines based on a sound theoretical foundation, and empirical research that will enable college teachers to narrow the gap in cross cultural teaching and student learning.

Alicia Chávez is an Associate Professor in Educational Leadership and Policy at UNM. She has served as collegiate leader, student affairs professional, and faculty member in universities around the country. Chávez has also co-authored several books on culture and college teaching, including Web Based Teaching Across Culture and Age (Springer, 2013).

The UNM Bookstore is located at 2301 Central Ave. NE at the intersection of Cornell and Central.

The Daily Word in Denver Broncos, Beyonce and Politics

By Desiree Garcia [ Mon Feb 8 2016 2:01 PM ]
The Daily Word

What’s a better way to celebrate a Super Bowl winning? Trash your own hometown.

Beyoncé? More like Beyon-slaaay.

Because what’s an event without someone stirring up irrelevant controversy?

You’re a bad feminist if you don’t vote for Hillary Clinton. I forgot that’s the fastest way I get sent to the depths of hell.

The Clintons v. Sanders. Yikes.

My actual goal in life is to be like Snow White and befriend and home animals.

Be a homie and help your community.
