I received an interesting package from Iraq yesterday. In it was a book written in Arabic. The only words I could read on the cover were “Dr. Marvin Marshall.”
Hike Samuel Artin, a teacher in Baghdad, Iraq, has been using the Raise Responsibility System—part of the Discipline Without Stress Teaching Model—in his classes for a number of years. He asked my permission to publish my education book, Discipline Without Stress® Punishments or Rewards: How Teachers and Parents Promote Responsibility & Learning.
The book has been published by “Beit Al-Hikma,” a publishing house in Baghdad that was founded in the 16th century. And the book in the package was the final product.
Interestingly, Iraq is attempting to promote democracy, and the highest level of motivation in the Raise Responsibility System uses this exact term. I’d say it’s a good fit, for sure.
I would like to contact someone in the U.S. State Department or someone in the U.S. armed forces to inform them of the book in an attempt to help them in their efforts. If you know of anyone I can contact, please let me know. We will be doing a real service to get the book known in Iraq. Please note that I am receiving no royalties or money of any kind for this service.
Thanks for your help in this regard.
