"Reading the novel and participating in the conference with Brad assisted us n learning and teaching the standards outlined by our Federal, State, and District departments because we analyzed it in more depth than we would have if we simply read it and discussed it in the classroom setting only. Conferencing with Brad allowed us to discover the different layers of meaning that are within the novel so that we could make connections to our real lives."

Patsy Lewis, Fort Bend School District

We have hundreds of testimonials, please contact us for lots of nice things people have said. 

"Our students were greatly impacted, the only wish was that more students could have participated. the students are making connections to real life and are still talking about how unexpectedly cool and engaging it was with Mr. Brad Tassell. Additionally, during their leisure time I hear students telling other students their suggestions for how to handle bullies."
