Making Sense of Today:

How to Connect for a Better Tomorrow

(2020) 


Writing in the tradition of griots, African wisdom keepers and storytellers, Dr. Mapp’s latest book, Making Sense of Today, provides a resource book for navigating the 21st century with a special focus on continuous learning and relationships. …Her new book broadens our scope to how we interact with and make sense of the larger global society. …Dr. Mapp provides us with our own personal guidebook for how to be the change we seek in the world. This book is for people of all ages and ethnicities and provides insight into the various pathways of how to live life fully and responsibly with meaning and purpose. … More than ever, what people need now during this pandemic are principles to live by, ways of interacting and ways to live that make sense of how to live a life that sustains the family, the community and the environment. So it makes perfect sense to get a copy of Dr. Mapp’s new book…

You Are Your Child’s Best Teacher:

A Holistic Guide to Link Home and School:

is an outstanding contribution. It is a timely and useful guide for parents, teachers and all involved in helping children and young people develop and prepare to become successful adults. The author is a successful parent, teacher of many years, administrator and counselor. Using her holistic perspective, knowledge and skills from her training and experiences she has provided us with very important and useful insights.

The book enables parents in particular to think and plan to support the development of their children from birth to maturity, through school and the workforce. It is written as only a parent, teacher and counselor could– comprehensive, easy to read, but thoughtful and very, very useful!

   --James P. Comer, M.D., Yale Child Study Center, Maurice Falk Professor of Child Psychiatry and Associate Dean,  Yale School of Medicine

Just want to let you know that I have completely read your Holistic Guide… although it is designed for U.S. families, adults and parents, … I think the Guide is universally relevant and helpful for all countries & peoples. …Your Guide is insightful, and from personal knowledge, experience and observation, problems identified with the public education system from the 1940's (my generation) through to now, also exist in countries that imported Britain's education system.

However, many factors as you have listed, have contributed to poor education outcomes wherever the model was introduced. I hope your Guide is widely accepted and used in Homes and Schools throughout U.S.A., so that people at all levels and the electorate are truly educated, informed and can be responsible adults.                                                                  --    Cheers!

In an informal conversation about the book in support of its importance internationally, LL asked me if the book was available there since they need help with their children of various income levels.

Dr. DeBora Mapp challenges families, schools and stakeholders to take a look at our past and present and begin reflecting on new realities. Those new realities will move us to see common denominators that reveal further connections. Those connections will enable us to strengthen our families, our schools and our country.  Read this important work with an open heart and an open mind. Read it again and again, utilizing it as a reference and guide to questions you may have had in times past regarding your child’s education and success. Your interest and confidence, as a parent, in your child’s education WILL BE renewed!                                                         --Stanley D. Murphy, EdD

Our Children and Future  is an excellent book for parents, teachers and all those concerned about the development of children. The book challenges the reader to move into the 21st century on child development. --

--Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu, author of There is Nothing Wrong with Black Students, Raising Black Boys and Raising Black Girls


Our Children and Future   is a welcome resource for parents who are overwhelmed or just looking for directions to link home and school. I often write of The Power of One to change issues in society. Dr. Mapp addresses the four challenges that I research and believe that we need to address to establish relationships with our students and our schools: communication, collaboration, culture and caring…. 


Dr. Mapp’s book offers a step-by-step guidebook to bridging home and school issues that are age, grade, community, and culture sensitive and specific. Her practical strategies, based on research and reality, offer hope and suggestions on how you can prepare your child for 21st century challenges and opportunities.

I’m so busy, but maybe I need to make time to read this and do something different to help my children get educated.                                                —From a harried, hurried Mother



This may help our youth see the reasons why they/we need to change.

                                                                     —From a Volunteer in a community initiative



Re Dr. Mapp's work as an Adolescent Literacy Coach:

”Schoolwide, we moved up 5 points in reading in one year with Dr. Mapp’s coaching.”                                                     R. Murray, Retired Principal, Winburn Middle, Lexington KY


Re Dr. Mapp's work as a Curriculum Coordinator:

The Social Studies score went up 50 points in one year on the state assessment in a low income elementary school. The unruly fourth grade students had the reputation of running away substitute teachers the previous year. When the former high school teacher was asked the reason for the large score increase, he said his participation in a multicultural education PD presented by Dr. Mapp gave him the strategies that led to his students' success.
