For most of us the alphabet is something we take for granted. We learn it, form words and communicate but never stop to think about its origins.
Dr. Bonnie Mackey has made a study of it. The alphabet is the subject of a book she co-authored with her niece, Hedy Schiller Watson. The book, titled Alphabet Books: The K-12 Educators’ Power Tool, provides an interesting perspective on a subject we seldom think about.
Mackey received her Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a minor in art history from Mary Washington College, her Master of Education in educational administration from the University of Texas, and her Doctorate in philosophy, educational curriculum and instruction with an emphasis on language literacy and culture from Texas A&M University. Mackey’s passion about learning and education is evident.This is not Mackey’s first book. She has written others as well as numerous opinions and theories on the subject. Add a comment
