    A Charter School Story

    A Charter School Story describes the challenges and successes in Hawaii’s efforts to create a charter school system. For two years Jim Shon was its chief administrator – charged not only with securing funding and amending Hawaii’s laws, but also with explaining how charter schools are different, and why they deserve our full support. If you are wondering what the charter school movement is all about, and where charters fit in the reform of public education, Shon’s chronicle of his stormy and controversial tenure is worth reading. If you are thinking of starting your own charter school, this book tells you what you are in for.

    A is for Adjective: An American English Encyclopedia to its Syntax and Grammar (B&W)

    A is for Adjective is for ANY L1 (language one) or L2 (language two) speakers of the English language who might be in the process of wanting to learn more. This includes teachers and students alike, who may want to either study, teach, learn, or do simple research of it. The book is a type of encyclopedia that will compare and contrast the English language to Turkish and includes English-to-Turkish translations.

    The book will start by exploring the history of both languages. In Unit One, it will explore the concepts of phonetics and phonology of the American English dialect at the primary level. Unit Two will then focus on the linguistic study of syntax at the primary level. This will include learning the nine lexical categories as well as understanding what phrases and phrase structure rules are, et cetera. Unit Three will then go on to cover the grammatical notions of contractions and wh-questions. Unit Four will finish the volume by bringing up the idea of tenses.

    Unit Five, which begins Volume Two, will consist of nearly everything about English grammar. Unit Six will finish the volume by bringing up the linguist’s concept of affixation. Unit Seven aka Volume Three, for A is for Adjective, is a compendium of useful words, phrases, and expressions organized by category (e.g. foods and sports).

    The goal of these books is to teach the English language, its grammar, and the sciences behind it. For some, having a supportive instructor might be needed. In the end, anyone who can comprehend the information from front to back will therefore become more aware of the language than that of the average speaking L1-native-English speaker. This is guaranteed.

  • Boondoggle: The Grand Delusion of American Education

    Boondoggle: The Grand Delusion of American Education

    The author provides abundant, compelling, anecdotal evidence for what is really wrong with American education, and it isn’t what both the U.S education establishment and the politicians (“No Child Left Behind” & “Common Core”) have led Americans to believe it is.

    What’s REALLY wrong is that it is the re-arranging of the deck chairs on the Titanic of a rigid, mechanistic education paradigm that has characterized American schools from the 18th through 20th centuries, but is inappropriate and inadequate for the 21st.

    It goes on to describe how it SHOULD be, which is humane and Socratic, rather than sterile and dogmatic.

  • Hairmythology – The Origin of Hair Diversity: Uncover Your Hairitage – A New Hair Grading System That Dispels the “Bad Hair/Good Hair” Myth

    Hairmythology – The Origin of Hair Diversity: Uncover Your Hairitage – A New Hair Grading System That Dispels the “Bad Hair/Good Hair” Myth

    People, all over the world, tend to subscribe to the ‘bad hair/ good hair myth’ as a benchmark for grading hair-quality; if not for themselves, then, for others.

    Historical facts, scientific facts, and fiction merge together in a dramatic, contemporary, background story, that sets the stage for demonstrating how differences in our ‘hair-quality’ came about.

    This book includes a workbook and reflection section which challenges the reader not only to rethink the “bad hair/good hair myth”, but to possibly, deconstruct it.

    This book, therefore, gives birth to a new Hair-Grading-System: “Good Hair/No-Bad Hair!” This system validates all hair types, and subsequently, all human beings. Hair diversity needs not spell, hair a-d-v-e-r-s-i-t-y. Simply, biodiversity!

    Recommended for children, teens and adults of all hair types, including bald.
