Sound Research for Energizing My Teaching-Perfect Timing

I just finished the audible version—ordered the print version that includes a dvd. Graves, Kittle, and Newkirk remind me of the best of my teaching, leave me yearning to continue my growth. For some some, the writing process and conference movement seems dated, but Graves connects our current teaching context with the need to give our writers the space, time, and choice they need to grow and learn. Graves’ work remains relevant. This book is perfect timing.
