Course Description

Reading - A Potent Avenue for Professional Growth

Historian Barbara Tuchman once described books as being the carriers of civilization. Those of us who work to preserve and improve civilization by educating young minds need the intellectual and emotional stimulation and sustenance that comes from reading important books. Project READ is designed for busy educators who wish to remain on the "cutting edge" in their chosen disciplines.

The cost is minimal; the rewards are endless. Each book is assigned to a specific course number.

Project READ is developed for educators in the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) and overseas international schools. This course has been approved by DoDEA. Each book is assigned a different course number corresponding to the book title.

NEW! - This pre-selected course has two options in course work submission - Option #1 - submit fully written assignments, with follow-up written feedback from Instructor or Option #2 - set up real time conference with Instructor, via Zoom, to allow for real time discussion with and feedback from Instructor. Choose one.
