Ian was the uncredited ghost writer for the 2018 book Building People: Social-Emotional Learning for Kids, Families, Schools, & Communities published by Abington Press and edited by Tamara Fyke.
Dr. Rod Berger is the CEO and media face of MindRocket Media. He interviewed 12 leading national experts on SEL and education. He asked them all the same questions: What is the current state of SEL on a local, regional, and national level; What are the consequences if we maintain the current status quo; What is your forecast for the future; What is your pathway to success, etc.
It was Ian's job to take the raw 1-hour audio recording and various other research tools provided like bios and written papers and websites connected to the interviewee and create a coherent chapter on a very complicated subject. It's a very tight niche of education professionals who are trying to do the absolute best for our next generation, and while some are true academics in the purist sense of the word, the passion and the talent they have for the subject comes through in the book. It's a snapshot of education in time.
