learn something today.

My main goal with this blog is to assist those of you who have days where they ask, "does anyone know of a good book to read?" Being an English teacher wannabe, I also want to take the time to review educational books when possible. Not to bore you to tears, but because I think they are super interesting, and this isn't all about you, selfish.

Diversity's Promise for Higher Education: Making It Work by Daryl G. Smith includes 40 years of diversity research and is obviously designed for those of you who educate. Each generation is becoming more diverse than the previous, that being said, even you that teach in rural or suburban communities will benefit from this book. The way we approach diversity in schools should be ever changing. Our strategies need to be constantly changing, especially at the college level, because students, their families and their communities are constantly changing. Get the paperback to save some cash flow.
