other topics: click a “category” or use search box

Stenhouse Publishers  produce professional development books and videos by teachers and for teachers.  They promise that all of their titles are grounded in a philosophy of education that respects both teacher and learner.  And all are designed to integrate theory, research and practice in an accessible manner.

But they also offer The Stenhouse Blog, a site for discussions about what books are being prepared,  book reviews, podcasts, videos, and updates about authors.

Quick Tip Tuesdays

A new project is “Quick Tip Tuesday,” where each week a teaching technique or strategy will be offered by one of the authors.  Already posted: “How to write a good ending;” “Independent reading with ELLs;”  “Strategies for responding to student work;” “Creating a writing routine;” and “Find your storytelling voice.”
