Perfectionism: A Practical Guide to Managing ‘Never Good Enough’
I wrote a book on perfectionism that won a big ol’ award. I like it because everyone who reads it tells me that they got tips they could really use from it. It’s a good one, promise, and it’s geared to teachers and parents. I keep the Kindle version super cheap, so everyone can grab it who wants it!
Living Gifted: 52 Tips to Survive and Thrive in Giftedland
Living Gifted: 52 Tips to Survive and Thrive in Giftedland is a super little book that is a book and workbook in one. It’s chock-full of great activities you can do (or do with students). You can get the ebook for just $2 here.
Gifted Guild’s Guide to Depth and Complexity
You may already have the book Ian and I wrote about Depth & Complexity. It’s a game-changer (and we aren’t even the ones who called it that! It’s the best (because it’s the only!!!!) book on the Depth & Complexity framework, and it’s very user-friendly. If you’ve ever been interested in Depth & Complexity, this is the book for you. Grab a copy!
Concept Capsules: The Interactive, Research-based Strategy Teaching Academic Vocabulary
Teach academic vocabulary at all? In any content area? Have I got a method for you! This is my latest book, and it may be my favorite (well, after the Depth & Complexity book). You can grab the paperback here or the digital copy at half price for people who’ve attended workshops here.
Let’s keep in touch!
I hope to meet you again, even if it’s just virtually.
