The Academic All-America program is a student-athlete recognition program. The program selects an honorary sports team composed of the most outstanding student-athletes of a specific season for positions in various sports—who in turn are given the honorific "Academic All-American". Since 1952, CoSIDA has bestowed Academic All-American recognition on male and female athletes in Divisions I, II, and III of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) as well as NAIA athletes, covering all championship sports.[1] The award honors student-athletes who have performed well academically while regularly competing for their institution.

It is sponsored by and presented as the Google Cloud, Academic All-America Award, having been previously sponsored by Capital One (2011-18), ESPN The Magazine (2004–2010), Verizon (2000–04) and GTE (1985–2000), and is administered by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). The award was known as the CoSIDA Academic All-America until 1985. The phrases "Academic All-America" and "Academic All-American" are protected trademarks of CoSIDA.

Prior to 2011, there were two sets of teams chosen: One for Division I and one for all other Divisions, NAIA, two-year colleges and Canadian schools. In 2011, the program was expanded to include four sets of honorary teams: One for each of NCAA Divisions I, II and III as well as one for NAIA, two-year colleges and Canadian schools. In each program, regional Academic All-District selections are made with the first-team All-District selections being eligible for Academic All-America team selections.

Currently, CoSIDA is responsible for the annual selection of 816 Academic All-Americans in Men's baseball, basketball, football, soccer, and track & field/cross country and Women's basketball, soccer, softball, volleyball, and track & field/cross country, as well as at-large teams for both men and women in Division I, II and III and NAIA in all NCAA championship sports.[2] Currently, the sports that CoSIDA recognizes as eligible for at-large Academic All-American recognition are Women's bowling, Men's and Women's fencing, Women's field hockey, Men's and Women's golf, Men's and Women's gymnastics, Men's and Women's ice hockey, Men's and Women's lacrosse, Men's and Women's rifle, Women's rowing, Men's and Women's skiing, Men's and Women's swimming, Men's and Women's tennis, Men's volleyball, Men's and Women's water polo, and Men's wrestling.[3] Athletes in each sport are selected by their respective governing bodies (e.g. U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association for track and field, American Volleyball Coaches Association for volleyball and United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association for lacrosse)

On May 7, 2018, Google Cloud was announced as the title sponsor of the Academic All-America program.[4] Capital One had become the previous named sponsor of the program on January 31, 2011.[5] CoSIDA has registered a trademark for the name, "Academic All-America" which it uses for its student-athlete recognition program. The Capital One Academic All-America program administered by CoSIDA is not related to such programs administered or sponsored by coaches' organizations. As a result, cease and desist orders have been granted to protect the trademark at times. Various sports that have similar programs have had to use names such as All-Academic to recognize scholar athletes.[6]

Prior to the relationship with Capital One, the Academic All-American Award has had other named corporate sponsors such as ESPN, Verizon and Verizon's corporate predecessor GTE who were sponsors from 1985 until the mid-2000s.[7] In 1981, the National Collegiate Athletic Association sponsored the program.[8] From 1985 until the 1999–2000 academic year the honorees were called GTE All-Americans, but during the 2000–01 academic year they became known as Verizon All-Americans when Verizon acquired GTE.[9][10] Verizon continued to be the named sponsor through the 2003–04 academic year when they did not renew their rights.[11] ESPN the Magazine became the sponsor during the 2004–05 academic year and remained sponsor until September 2010.[12][13] Fall 2010 teams, continued to bear the ESPN sponsorship name.[14] Capital one took over the sponsorship in January 2011.[5]

Process

Initially, team selections were composed of both a University Division, made up of Division I participants, and a College Division, made up of Division II, Division III, NAIA, and 2-year colleges. First, second and third team selections are made for both divisions in most Academic All-America programs. However, the football programs only select a first and second team. The football University Division includes both Football Bowl Subdivision and Football Championship Subdivision.[3] In 2011, the program was expanded to incorporate four sets of teams: Division I, Division II, Division III and a College division that includes NAIA institutions, two-year colleges and Canadian schools.[15]

Nominations must be made on the CoSIDA website by a current dues-paying member with a CoSIDA-issued user name and password for the academic year at issue.[3] Formerly, nominations were made by pen and ink and then with typewritten nominations.[16] The CoSIDA members nominate student-athletes only from the academic institution that they are affiliated with. The nominees must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) at his/her current institution. Nominees must have participated in at least 50 percent of the team’s games at the position listed on the nomination form (where applicable). In baseball and softball, pitchers must have at least 10.0 innings pitched. Nominees are ineligible until the completion of one full calendar year at his/her current institution and attainment of sophomore athletic eligibility. Transfers, graduate students and two-year college graduates must have completed one full calendar year at the nominating institution to be eligible. Graduate school nominees must have a cumulative GPA of 3.30 or better both as an undergraduate and in graduate school. Except for at-large program, there are no limits in the number of athletes an institution may nominate. In the at-large program, nominations are limited to three per school per gender (a total of three men's at-large candidates and three women's at-large candidates). If an institution participates in both the college and the university divisions, it may nominate a total of three men and three women between the two divisions.[3]

In each program, All-District selections are elected by the CoSIDA membership with the resulting first-team All-District selections advancing to the national ballot for Academic All-America team selections. The national ballot is cast by members of the Academic All-America Committee and the CoSIDA Board of Directors.[3] Each program also recognizes a single athlete for both the University and College Divisions who are referred to as Academic All-America of the Year.

In addition, there is an annual selection by the College Sports Information Directors of America and its Academic All-America sponsor of the individual athlete selected as the most outstanding Academic All-America of the approximately 1640 annual selections. Starting in 2012, one winner will be chosen for each division: Division I, Division II, Division III and a College division that includes NAIA institutions, two-year colleges and Canadian schools. Between 1996 and 2011 one winner each was chosen from both the College and University Divisions' 816 annual selections. Between 1988 and 1995 one winner was chosen per year.[17]

Team Member of the Year
See: List of Academic All-America Team Members of the Year

During the 1987–88 academic year, CoSIDA began selecting one student as the most outstanding team member of the year. In 1996, CoSIDA began selecting two outstanding team members yearly, one each from the College division and the University division. In 2011–12, when the program was expanded to include four sets of teams (Division I, Division II, Division III and a college division), four winners were chosen, one from each division.

Effort and Excellence in Urban Classrooms: Expecting—and Getting—Success With All Students: Expecting, and Getting, Success with All Students (Critical Issues in Educational Leadership Series)
Effort and Excellence in Urban Classrooms: Expecting—and Getting—Success With All Students: Expecting, and Getting, Success with All Students (Critical Issues in Educational Leadership Series)
This timely volume reveals in great detail how educators closed the “performance gap” for low-income students by linking expectations and results. Drawing heavily on the words and experiences of students, teachers, and parents, this book describes how students who traditionally had not succeeded academically in school began to do so. Effort and Excellence in Urban Classrooms demonstrates just how this was done by including: In-depth descriptions of classrooms and schools where students began succeeding when educators assumed the responsibility for their successData-based discussion of teachers’ views on parental involvement in schools and parents’ views of teachers’ and schools’ actions on behalf of studentsIdentification of the kinds of support that schools and districts must provide if educators are to be successfulAn unrelenting emphasis on how educators enabled students to be motivated and to produce high-quality work“At last, a book that helps us see and feel what a ‘no excuses’ approach to teaching is like in urban classrooms! This close look at teachers and students in high-poverty settings gives new meaning to ‘all children can learn.’ A must read for those who are serious about closing the achievement gap.”—Michael S. Knapp, Center for the Study of Teaching & Policy, University of Washington

The Fighters
The Fighters
“A classic of war reporting...The author’s stories give heart-rending meaning to the lives and deaths of these men and women, even if policymakers generally have not.” —The New York Times Pulitzer Prize winner C.J. Chivers’s unvarnished account of modern combat, told through the eyes of the fighters who have waged America’s longest wars.More than 2.7 million Americans have served in Afghanistan or Iraq since September 11, 2001. C.J. Chivers reported from both wars from their beginnings. The Fighters vividly conveys the physical and emotional experience of war as lived by six combatants: a fighter pilot, a corpsman, a scout helicopter pilot, a grunt, an infantry officer, and a Special Forces sergeant. Chivers captures their courage, commitment, sense of purpose, and ultimately their suffering, frustration, and moral confusion as new enemies arise and invasions give way to counterinsurgency duties for which American forces were often not prepared. The Fighters is a tour de force, a portrait of modern warfare that parts from slogans to do for American troops what Stephen Ambrose did for the G.I.s of World War II and Michael Herr for the grunts in Vietnam. Told with the empathy and understanding of an author who is himself an infantry veteran, The Fighters presents the long arc of two wars.

Lions of Kandahar: The Story of a Fight Against All Odds
Lions of Kandahar: The Story of a Fight Against All Odds
One of the most critical battles of the Afghan War is now revealed as never before. Lions of Kandahar is an inside account from the unique perspective of an active-duty U.S. Army Special Forces commander, an unparalled warrior with multiple deployments to the theater who has only recently returned from combat there.Southern Afghanistan was slipping away. That was clear to then-Captain Rusty Bradley as he began his third tour of duty there in 2006. The Taliban and their allies were infiltrating everywhere, poised to reclaim Kandahar Province, their strategically vital onetime capital. To stop them, the NATO coalition launched Operation Medusa, the largest offensive in its history. The battlefield was the Panjwayi Valley, a densely packed warren of walled compounds that doubled neatly as enemy bunkers, lush orchards, and towering marijuana stands, all laced with treacherous irrigation ditches. A mass exodus of civilians heralded the carnage to come.Dispatched as a diversionary force in support of the main coalition attack, Bradley’s Special Forces A-team and two others, along with their longtime Afghan Army allies, watched from across the valley as the NATO force was quickly engulfed in a vicious counterattack. Key to relieving it and calling in effective air strikes was possession of a modest patch of high ground called Sperwan Ghar. Bradley’s small detachment assaulted the hill and, in the midst of a savage and unforgettable firefight, soon learned they were facing nearly a thousand seasoned fighters—from whom they seized an impossible victory.Now Bradley recounts the whole remarkable story as it actually happened. The blistering trek across Afghanistan’s infamous Red Desert. The eerie traces of the elusive Taliban. The close relations with the Afghan people and army, a primary mission focus. Sperwan Ghar itself: unremitting waves of fire from machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades; a targeted truck turned into an inferno; the death trap of a cut-off compound. Most important: the men, Americans and Afghans alike—the “shaky” medic with nerves of steel and a surgeon’s hands in battle; the tireless sergeant who seems to be everywhere at once; the soft-spoken intelligence officer with laser-sharp insight; the diminutive Afghan commander with a Goliath-sized heart; the cool maverick who risks all to rescue a grievously wounded comrade—each unique, all indelible in their everyday exercise of extraordinary heroism.Praise for Lions of Kandahar   “A raw and authentic war story about untamed Green Berets in action.”—Dalton Fury, New York Times bestselling author of Kill Bin Laden   “A powerful and gripping account of a battle that helped shape the war in Afghanistan . . . With crisp writing and page-turning action, Lions of Kandahar is one of the best books written about the conflict.”—Mitch Weiss, Pulitzer Prize–winning investigative journalist and co-author of Tiger Force: A True Story of Men and War   “One of the most important documents to emerge from the war in Afghanistan.”—The Seattle Times   “Powerful . . . a riveting account of a strategic battle that doesn’t glorify war or focus on heroic deeds . . . Make room on your military bookshelf for Lions of Kandahar.”—San Antonio Express-News   “Bradley takes the reader into battle.”—Time

"The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms and was adopted on December 15, 1791, as part of the first ten amendments contained in the Bill of Rights. The Second Amendment was based partially on the right to keep and bear arms in English common law and was influenced by the English Bill of Rights of 1689. Sir William Blackstone described this right as an auxiliary right, supporting the natural rights of self-defense, resistance to oppression, and the civic duty to act in concert in defense of the state. In the twenty-first century, the amendment has been subjected to renewed academic inquiry and judicial interest.[11] In District of Columbia v. Heller (2008), the Supreme Court handed down a landmark decision that held the amendment protects an individual right to possess and carry firearms.[12][13] In McDonald v. Chicago (2010), the Court clarified its earlier decisions that limited the amendment's impact to a restriction on the federal government, expressly holding that the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment incorporates the Second Amendment against state and local governments.[14] ....

Science for All Children: A Guide to Improving Elementary Science Education in Your School District
Science for All Children: A Guide to Improving Elementary Science Education in Your School District
Remember the first time you planted a seed and watched it sprout? Or explored how a magnet attracted a nail? If these questions bring back memories of joy and wonder, then you understand the idea behind inquiry-based science--an approach to science education that challenges children to ask questions, solve problems, and develop scientific skills as well as gain knowledge. Inquiry-based science is based on research and experience, both of which confirm that children learn science best when they engage in hands-on science activities rather than read from a textbook. The recent National Science Education Standards prepared by the National Research Council call for a revolution in science education. They stress that the science taught must be based on active inquiry and that science should become a core activity in every grade, starting in kindergarten. This easy-to-read and practical book shows how to bring about the changes recommended in the standards. It provides guidelines for planning and implementing an inquiry-based science program in any school district. The book is divided into three parts. "Building a Foundation for Change," presents a rationale for inquiry-based science and describes how teaching through inquiry supports the way children naturally learn. It concludes with basic guidelines for planning a program. School administrators, teachers, and parents will be especially interested in the second part, "The Nuts and Bolts of Change." This section describes the five building blocks of an elementary science program: Community and administrative support. A developmentally appropriate curriculum. Opportunities for professional development. Materials support. Appropriate assessment tools. Together, these five elements provide a working model of how to implement hands-on science. The third part, "Inquiry-Centered Science in Practice," presents profiles of the successful inquiry-based science programs in districts nationwide. These profiles show how the principles of hands-on science can be adapted to different school settings. If you want to improve the way science is taught in the elementary schools in your community, Science for All Children is an indispensable resource.
