Read what Angela Watson has to say about Educating America
Angela Watson, from The Cornerstone, featured Educating America in her website article Volunteers and Aides. Here is an excerpt of what she had to say:
One of the most remarkable things about this book is that its advice applies equally well to teachers, parents, volunteers, para-professionals, and other classroom assistants (the first part of the book contains more general strategies, with separate chapters written “mostly” for each type of classroom worker.) Educating America tackles tricky topics from setting expectations to monitoring student progress. The advice goes far beyond common sense stuff and provides genuinely useful tips that you can tell are effective in real classrooms.

This book has helped my classroom assistants be more effective working with small groups. It is beneficial to the kids, the assistants and also the teacher!
