JACKSON, Tenn. – Jan. 31, 2011 – Thomas R. Rosebrough and Ralph G. Leverett will sign copies of their new book, “Transformational Teaching in the Information Age,” at the LifeWay Christian Store in Jackson Feb. 1.
Rosebrough is executive dean of the College of Education and Human Studies at Union University, and Leverett is university professor of special education and director of Union’s Master of Education program in Jackson.
