Courageous Edventures: I Wrote a Book!

Hi everyone! I'm so sorry it's been FOREVER since I've written a blog post. I have a good reason though... I wrote a book! (I think you probably got that from the title.) After years of blogging here, sharing stories via conferences and a TEDx, Corwin Press gave me the amazing opportunity to compile all of those tales and tips into something a bit more substantial.

Dreaming up a concept, doing the writing and going through hours of revision has been a definite edventure in and of itself. I didn't want to share the news afraid I'd jinx myself. However, today the cover was approved and my editor gave me the green light to begin sharing!

The book is called Courageous Edventures. Below is a brief description of the content. As it goes through peer reviews, revisions and iterations, I hope to begin sharing more here about the process.

The tentative release date is late summer / early fall of this year. Please stay tuned for more updates, as I will publish them here! Thanks for all of your support, friends!

 Courageous Edventures

"I am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging.” - J. R. R. Tolkien 

The early innovators are out innovating, but what about the many who hope to follow on their own adventure? These educators often feel the pull, but hesitate due to the obstacles along the way. This book charts a course to identify and navigate around those obstacles so everyone can find the courage to journey into the limitless possibilities of the unknown -- and discover their own version of classroom innovation.
