#All Paperback Books

This book, “Unlocking Reading For All Students, shares reading fundamentals that were presented to a group of teachers at a school where I worked, Colegio del Verbo Divino, in Las Condes, in the city of Santiago de Chile. In this sense, it has undergone actual practical application of the concepts presented.

Further, in terms of theory, this book aims to share research on reading, and more importantly, how to help students unlock the key to a lifetime of pleasure and learning. It does not seek to cause controversy, rather, it seeks to serve as a reference for the first time teacher of reading and for the experienced teacher of reading who wishes to return to the basics of reading, as defined by the National Reading Panel in 2000.

Moreover, this book was made available, freely to the general public on “Slideshare.” After it has been viewed over seventeen thousand times (17,000) by teachers from all over the world, I am convinced of its value to you, dear reader, in your quest to “Unlock Reading For All Students“…

The International Baccalaureate [Kindle Edition]

The International Baccalaureate [Paperback]

The global search for high-quality education, embedded in high-performing education systems, has taken on mythical proportions, almost resembling the alchemists’ quest to turn common metals into gold.

It is my hope that the present day search for global education, equitable and providing equality of opportunity for all, shall not cease until the “gold” we seek, has been found.

I therefore dedicate this book to all the educators, researchers, parents and students the world over, who strive to achieve this elusive goal,high-quality education for all the citizens of the world.

In this endeavour, it is my belief that the International Baccalaureate merits a closer look, based on their more than 40 year history of delivering consistently excellent results.

I add that all of the reflections and views in this book are mine alone, unless otherwise noted, and can not be attributed to my employer or any other organization I am affiliated with, past or present. For any errors or oversights, I bear the complete responsibility.

Paperback books from my publisher, Createspace

The display of books is sharp, crisp, visual engaging, yet pleasant. The paperback is an art form in the 21st century. With time such a limited commodity, and so many competing for our time, reading 300 and 400 page novels is becoming a rare option.

What presents itself as a viable alternative is a book that is narrated, a genre that is innovative, creative, and delivers something fresh.

The Createspace platform allows the writer and the reader to do exactly what the 20st century calls for – connect, communicate, but not take up an elaborate amount of time.

I thank you in advance for buying my books. I’m sure you will find what you like, to enjoy, again and again.
