On Becoming an Effective Teacher, a new book by Carl Rogers, Harold Lyon, and Reinhard Tausch to be published Aug 2013 featuring Person Centered Education: http://www.routledge.com/9780415816984/
The largest research studies (42 US states and 6 countries) show that "Person-Centered" methods such as empathy, caring about students, and genuineness result in higher achievement, more creativity, and a prescription against violence in schools and universities, containing the last writings of the late Carl Rogers, named "the most distinguished psychologist in America," the work of Harold Lyon on education, mentoring, and education of the gifted & talented, and Reinhard Tausch's final research on the need for empathy in education. A must have book or teachers, educators, psychologists, parents and all in the helping professions.

Many of you have visited our website for additional information. Thank you.

I have been contacted by various people about my approach to long-term planning, which I call "backwards thinking" (key word being "THINKING") so thought you might enjoy the associated YouTube video: http://youtu.be/FPRCuCxOgww.

In addition, you might be interested in this "book report" written by an Economics teacher: http://www.redandblackbooks.com/default/Education%20Files/Red&Black&Miss...

If you are interested in doing a pilot program at your school, please contact me as we discount books to schools and prisons. (Wish I had room to tell you about the textbook salesman who got in my face about discounting to schools.)

I taught Cormac McCarthy's THE ROAD this spring to my high school special education literature class and interpreted it for them ... and then we watched the movie. What a huge success. I really recommend it to you! Have a great summer!
