The App Generation
Howard Gardner and Katie Davis
From Twitter and Facebook to Instagram and YouTube, it is hard to deny that today’s youth are deeply involved with digital media. In The App Generation, Professor Howard Gardner and Katie Davis, Ed.M.’02, Ed.M.’09, Ed.D.’11, examine the impact of new technologies on adolescent identity, intimacy, and imagination, uncovering both disturbing drawbacks and striking benefits.

Leading Educational Change
Helen Janc Malone
In Leading Educational Change, Helen Janc Malone, Ed.D.’13, collects original essays on educational reform from leading minds in the field of educational change. Drawing on the latest knowledge in the areas of research, policy, and practice, the volume provides insight into contemporary challenges, misconceptions, and failed strategies while offering solutions and ideas for policymakers and educators.

Private Enterprise and Public Education
Frederick Hess and Michael Horn
Frederick Hess, Ed.M.’90, and Michael Horn take a neutral position as they examine the role that private enterprise can play in American education in their new book, Private Enterprise and Public Education. Bringing together viewpoints from a variety of contributors in the field, this volume analyzes how for-profit innovation and investment currently serve students.

Restoring Opportunity
Greg Duncan and Richard Murnane
Is the American Dream of upward mobility fading? Greg Duncan and Professor Richard Murnane fear that it is. Restoring Opportunity examines how increasing income inequality has reduced opportunities for many children to thrive in a changing economy and offers evidence for how intervention through childhood, school, and family support can be used to increase the life chances of low-income children.

School-Based Instructional Rounds
Lee Teitel
In School-Based Instructional Rounds, Lecturer Lee Teitel, Ed.D.’88, examines how the practice of “instructional rounds” can be adapted and applied within schools, rather than just across schools and districts. Looking closely at case studies of five models of school-based rounds, Teitel examines critical lessons from each and provides a resource for instructors and administrators across the nation.
