A Caregiver’s Journey
"...Donald R. Collins has created a powerful and important research volume on an unbelievably difficult topic as he shares his experiences as a caregiver for his wife. Both researchers and caregivers will benefit from the sharing as the book is a profound teaching tool for those who attempt, and even need, to combine their very personal life and circumstances with their professional research. This combination and the life support and solace it can provide is literally the most important reason to read this volume. Further, the sharing is both intimate and difficult, yet provides life affirming experiences and perspectives for all of us."

A Beginner's Guide for Qualitative Researchers
“The documentary archive is two-edged. It honors and brings history alive, offering a window into the voices, pains and social injustices of the past. The same window turns history back on itself, using the cracks, and contradiction of the past to imagine new futures, new utopias. Bringing the newcomer into the field through the multiple forms and uses of the archive is brilliant…The field owes the authors a big thanks.”
Norman K. Denzin, Emeritus Professor, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
Implementing the Culturally Responsive Instruction Observation Protocol (CRIOP) In K-8 Classrooms
“EL students’ classroom experience can be improved when teachers utilize discourse to deepen understanding. The CRIOP framework guides teachers through the importance of building upon students’ backgrounds and collaborative relationships. The scenarios provide teachers with incredible perspective for instruction and assessment, coupled with great suggestions for activities. I cannot wait to delve into this with teachers in our district!”
Dr. Molly McComas, Director of Student Services, Scott County Schools, KY
Persistent Threats and Paths Forward
“It’s a story that needs telling and this book does that very readably! It’s especially useful to those who may disagree with its underlying viewpoint. Especially at this time of peril we need to understand the connections—and misconnections—between schools and democracy!”
Deborah Meier, Leader in Holistic Reform in Urban Public Education
