Report on December Meeting

Belinda sent an email she had received from Dr. Rex Bolinger regarding Bill's book and the efforts his group is making to get the books in the schools. They are especially hoping to present the idea to the Advanced Placement US History courses. Marlene W was meeting Monday with the assistant principal of her daughter's school to see if he has any connections to reach Becky Chambers, who is Advanced Placement Director for Georgia.

Dr. Bolinger, who is connected thru Thomas Nelson with the Milken Educators (www.mff.org) and Team HOPE to promote Bill's book. Thomas Nelson will publish a "Roadmap" to compliment the books and provide resources, but it won't be out until June'08.

Dr. Bolinger asks that we consider ways to have the books reviewed and used for Advanced Placement US History courses in GA high schools "in as many creative ways as we can consider." Humm...I think we need to go back to him for ideas!!!

If anyone out there has ideas on presenting to Becky Chambers, let us know. Or who has info on GA's Advanced Placement program/anyone in the program's leadership or someone with access to Becky Chambers?

Anyone involved with the Georgia Kilken Educators, which apparently has just been formed??
