ELDER ROAD DAILY GIVEAWAY: Counterfeit Kids by Rod Baird

8:00 AM Tif Sweeney 4 Comments

It’s another daily giveaway thanks to Elder Road Books! Today I bring you Counterfeit Kids: Why they can’t think and how to save them by Rod Baird!

Veteran English teacher Rod Baird digs straight into the problem of teens, their parents, and their teachers. Demanding the best from his high school senior English students, Rod encounters everything from hovering parents to a school system that promotes inflated grades and quick processing over education. Reading the transcripts of his classroom discussions, one wishes that just once he had had a teacher like Mr. Baird. This eye-opening book should be required reading for every parent and every teacher. 

For the next 24 hours only (deadline: Saturday, June 1, 2013 at 8:00 AM EST), you can receive your very own e-copy of Counterfeit Kids: Why they can’t think and how to save them by Rod Baird. Send email to elderroad@comcast.net, subject: Counterfeit Kids Giveaway. Indicate Kindle or ePUB version.
