The longer printed works on Zigsite include, Rubric for Identifying Authentic DI Programs, Low Performers' Manual, and the log of the first formal study I did in education -- Comparative Preschool Study: High and Low SES Preschoolers Learning Advanced Cognitive Skills. These are constructive. Most of the other works are constructive only in the sense that they help clarify why education has gone basically nowhere in the past 40 years. Only now are educators starting to "invent" some of the stuff we used back in the 60s.
The prologues frame the "historical context" for the article or tome, and why I think it's important. Although some of the articles critique works you may not have read, I think that I express the oppositions' positions at least fairly enough that you don't have to read these works (unless you have masochistic tendencies).
For all the pieces on the website, I hold the copyright. Feel free to download them, and use them. If you have a special use, or want to publish something, check it out with me.
