Hi, All....I would like to know how I might be able to have my textbooks reviewed and information made available to my colleagues. I don't want to do anything that would be inappropriate for this site.

I have written 2 books Using Films in the Social Studies: World Historyand Using Films in the Social Studies: US History/GovernmentBoth books have been reviewed by Education Review and I have received positive feedback from teachers nationwide who have used them.

My Elections program, a published schoolwide interdisciplinary course, was featured in the March 2008 edition of Social Education. I have run several workshops for teachers for all three books/programs.
