We will treat the authors of the following books as visiting speakers to our program. Giving yourself good time to read and listen to the authors will be important. Much of the material that will inform our understanding of how people learn will come from these books. We’ll work hard together to become better, more analytical readers. We will give considerable time to making sense of both the content and implications of these readings.
