FREE EBOOK DOWNLOAD: “Beyond Grades” a Series on Grading and Feedback by Author Russ Walsh
“Beyond Grades” is essential reading for public school teachers who are resisting the corporatization of public education. Garn education books value imagination, creativity, originality, and innovation. The critical question that many of our books address is “What actionable knowledge do we need to change the future now?” We are convinced that all those who work for the common good in the caring professions must be supported – especially public school teachers.

Five-Star Amazon Reviews for Every Least Sparrow by Carolyn Walker
“Every Least Sparrow” is one of those rare books that combines honesty, depth, tears and laughter. Carolyn Walker unflinchingly tackles the subject of raising a challenged child. There are intimate scenes of every aspect of family life centering on the raising of Jennifer, who brings her own bright spirit into all that she touches. It’s such lyrical writing about such a difficult subject, that I couldn’t put it down.” Read Reviews.

SALE: What’s Whole In Whole Language? by Ken Goodman and FREE Ebook – The 1992-1993 Interviews of Renowned Reading Scholars
The original version of Goodman’s best-selling book sold two hundred and fifty thousand copies, became a worldwide phenomenon, and was translated into French, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese and Chinese. It became the handbook for the revolution for equality and justice for all children that occurred in classrooms around the world. Teachers were inspired to put aside commercial materials that were based on very limited understandings of reading and writing, and instead placed children and their very natural curiosity about language and learning at the center of classroom activity.
