We'll be getting one chapter a week, each week, until we have all seven chapters. Here's the schedule for release:
Chapter 1: Before Project Follow Through (Jan 22)
Chapter 2. Project Follow Through Begins (Jan 29)
Chapter 3. Follow Through continues (Feb 5)
Chapter 4. During Follow Through (Feb 12)
Chapter 5. Follow Through Evaluation (Feb 19)
Chapter 6: Follow Through Aftermath (Feb 26)
Chapter 7. The New Millennium (Mar 5)
Each chapter will be available for two weeks and then the fat cats in Washington will be taking it away, which means you'll have to buy it.
You might think that a thirty year old educational study doesn't have much to teach us. You'd be wrong. Most of the failed education fads that were tested in Project Follow Through, and failed miserably, are in use in thousands of classrooms across the country, often in renamed form.
The list of educational writers that know what they're talking about and are worth your time reading is short indeed. Zig is on that short list. Don't miss this opportunity.
