  • What do you need to learn?
  • What skills do you need to acquire?

Classic Selections

Straight Talk About Reading (Susan Hall, Louisa Moats, and Reid Lyon) "Parents must know, understand and advocate for 'good instruction'. Teaches parents about reading research -- a 'reader friendly' way to get acquainted with proven research based methods of reading instruction." 

No Parent Left Behind (Susan M. Brefach, Ed.D.) Written by a clinical psychologist with over 32 years' experience in evaluating and advocating for children, it tells parents exactly how they can help their child succeed in school.

How to Argue and Win Every Time (Gary Spence) This book is not about arguing. It is about effective oral presentation of your position, using story telling and visual imagery. Pete used the principles in this book in the Carter oral argument.
