What People Are Saying...

"I used these materials for my course and they were really helpful! It was wonderful for my students to have the chance to hear "directly" from Frances and to have the opportunity to discuss ideas afterwards. They are perfect in length for concisely conveying the concepts, and then allowing time for reflection. I would definitely recommend for other educators to use these materials. We have been returning to many of the concepts in subsequent weeks, especially the spirals of scarcity and empowerment."

—- Stephanie Cubbon, of San Diego City College
