I have just completed the first draft — 65,000 words — of my upcoming book, Student Self-Motivation, Responsibility, and Engagement:Practical Answers to Classroom Challenges (of course, the title may still change). It will be published by Eye On Education next spring.

Based on comments from reviewers and the publisher on my first several chapters, I have to go back and make a number of changes, and probably shorten the book a bit. But that’s going to feel like a piece of cake after pounding away at the keyboard the past two months to get this manuscript done before school starts on September 7th.

I think teachers are going to find this book very useful and practical. I know many of my colleagues at our school are looking forward to using the lessons and strategies this year — they get an advance look 🙂
