[Xmca-l] Re: Ed Psych Textbook?

Dear Ian, Greg, and Colleagues:
Many thanks for your insights regarding the Ed Psych text. Right now, I am looking at the Berk text. The corporate hijacking of the K-12 and teacher ed curriculum is pretty scary, isn't it?! If any of you would be interested in participating in a symposium related to the topic, please let me know.
All the best,

Dr. Cathrene Connery
