I’ve collected notes, conducted research, and began writing this book (CYOD), and now have a good idea about what the structure will be. I talked before about the writing style of the book, but now I’ll share the actual outline I am working with. The book will be divided into 5 main themes/sections with short chapters… Read more CYOD: Table of Contents

Quotes On Education

During the process of writing this book, I have come across a number of quotes about education. I plan to have a quote at the start of each chapter or section. I’ve always been a fan of a good quote.
