I continue to go back to this one particular book when I am putting together presentations, whether it be G/T workshops or Abydos recertifications.

It is a good 'un!

Donald Graves was one of the greatest voices of his generation, a plain spoken, thoughtful genius. He was an educator, a writer, an outspoken advocate for educational best practices. His death was a loss too great to put into words for people the world over, whether they were aware of it or not.
