|Two New E-books from NAGC
The NAGC Publications Committee is pleased to announce two new books in the NAGC Select e-book series. The series offers concise, informative booklets on topics and issues in education. Intended as a service to practicing educators and/or families, NAGC Select e-books are designed for the non-researcher who needs to know the basics of a particular topic in education. The books have a consistent format: an intro on the importance of the topic, three to five sections explaining what we know and how it translates into practice, a conclusion/summary and key resources on the topic, with annotations.
Check out these two new e-books:
