READING BOOT CAMP is a highly effective RTI reading program! Building on the fundamental belief "ALL STUDENTS ARE GIFTED", the goal is to lift ALL students' ACADEMIC READING SKILLS by using evidence-based "Socratic" methods, teaching all students as adroit learners, having fun, setting S.M.A.R.T. goals, and differentiating through scaffolding and cooperative learning. RBC has 15 years of AMAZING results; the accelerated RTI program improves reading growth by one-two years in just 20 days.

New Socratic Citizenship? | World Citizen
Teachers need to be a mirror for society good or bad, and a positive agent of change. Today we offer too-many of our students a ludicrous future, a civilization full of fear, greed, anger, mindless obedience and ignorance. FEAR and IGNORANCE is a powerful political tool used by dictators, democracies and politicians for millenia, the power of fear and ignorance triumphs over reason, compassion,
wisdom, generosity, hope and grace. How do we create a community and school learning environment that promotes World Citizenship (questioning, wise, ethical, proactive, Earthcentric and sustainable )? The four big lies that keep humanity from seeking a harmonious/Earthcentric civilization!
GREED, ANGER, FEAR and IGNORANCE! Teachers can take a path of passive nihilism or they can stand up and say enough of the ethical decay, intolerance, abandonment of truth, and political plutocracy.
