Celebrity Authors Articles

If this is a sore spot with you, as it is for me...perhaps you'd like to read more about what "the world" is saying about celebrity authors.  Should they be published as frequently as they are?  Should certain celebrities be represented so positively to children in such a forceful way?

I'd love to know what you think.  Read these and comment below!

Appreciative Inqury

What is Appreciative Inquiry?  Ever heard of it? It's an interesting idea for leadership, management and business.  I think it could apply to education too.

It reminds me of a book I like called Strength Finders, which focuses on people's strengths as part of a team rather than fixing the weak points.  I review it in more detail HERE.
