Editorial Reviews

Stephen D. Shepperd
“Ron Nash’s book provides a primer for the presenter who wants to facilitate active workshop ‘participation.’ His techniques can also be easily adapted to the classroom for high engagement, child-centered lessons. This is truly a book worth adding to your professional library.”
Sharon Madsen Redfern
“Administrators and workshop facilitators will find this book to be exactly what is needed in designing a workshop that takes advantage of teachers’ prior knowledge, helps them to deepen their understanding of workshop content and processes, and find ways to be more effective.”
