Heinemann is honored to have been Don’s publishing partner for more than three decades and over more than a dozen booksto have watched his research and vision become not only a classroom reality but the core of our publishing philosophy. His influence is so vast that we will meet him again and again on the pages of every book and resource we publish. His spirit pervades each of our booksin the conviction that children want to write and read if given the chance; in the flourishing of the workshop model of instruction that he pioneered; and in his abiding faith in teachers’ ability to make sound instructional decisions.
