Navigating Change Teachers' Guide
Asked by Jeremy from DOE on Apr 12, 2006.
I was wondering where I could order and buy a hard copy of the NEW Navigiating Change Teacher's Guide?
Answered by Paulo from University of Hawaii on Apr 21, 2006.
It's great to see your interest in the Navigating Change Teachers' Guide. At the moment, the guide is only given to teachers participating in the Navigating Change workshops, conducted around the islands (both the Workshop and the guide are free of charge). You might want to consider subscribing to the Navigating Change listserve to find out about upcoming sessions.
