First Edition Thus, Second Printing. Academic Press Paperback. This is a fascinating and inspiring book. It takes you into the heart and soul of an inner city free school. It's a beautiful human story about love and courage. It's also an excellent example of an ongoing experiment in real living and learning, real in the sense of actual, effective and happening. The school is free in two ways. You can go there without paying and rules are not prescribed. Chris Mercogliano does an excellent job of showing us both sides of this coin. Making It Up as We Go Along leads the reader to question the education system as a whole and specifically the classrooms you or your children enter every day. Mercogliano writes in an easy style and tells the story in an engaging way. Give a copy of this to your local administrators and your state legislators. This book has inspired many in the free school movement. I work at a democratic school in Brazil, and all the educators have read this book, it is also being used in pedagogcial studies in the University of Sao Paulo. If you're a parent, grandparent or soon to be a parent read this book! This is a must read for all educators and people interested in allowing children to be free!

Ready to Learn: How to Overcome Social And Behavioral Issues in the Primary Classroom.

By Jeanne Shub and Amy DeWeerd.

Portsmouth, NH Heinemann, 2006. Paperback First Ed thus; First Printing indicated. First Ed thus; First Printing indicated. Very Good+ in Wraps: shows only the most minute indications of use: just a hint of wear to extremities; mildest rubbing; former owner's name at front endpaper. Binding square and secure; text clean. Very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 208pp. Textbook Paperback. Ready to Learn offers teachers and support staff a wonderful program to help with various everyday classroom behavioral, social and learning issues. It describes how to run the story telling metaphorical projects that students are sure to become involved with- kids likes stories and adventures and to feel capable and successful. This seems to be what this program is all about. I found that while reading this it seemed to me that the authors have put together something that many of us do everyday but we may lack a theme or link to tie things all together. The book provides a format and gives lots of descriptions of how this has played out in the classroom along with trouble shooting to help when one might have things come up or get stuck. Chapter 2 titled: Following a Class Through an Interplay Unit was just great. I could see the entire program conducted from the beginning to the end. The chapter describes how the teacher is able to addresses all sorts of classroom issues (disorganization, distracted students, uncooperative behaviors) through an adventure where the individual students and the classroom as a whole move through a knighthood tale. The students listen to a story, role play the story and then accomplish tasks each week to work toward being `knighted'. Challenges occured along the way- but eventually were worked out to where the students were able to support each other and feel successful. The classroom at the end of the unit was quite different from the one described at the beginning. The end of the unit culminates with a knighting ceremony. While reading the chapter- I felt as if I was a fly on the wall in the classroom- change the names and they were students I knew. It was truly magical to read! I would encourage any teacher or support staff to check this book out. I look forward to sharing it with teachers and support staff I work with in various special education programs.
