Stop Dribbling Footballs is a new and unique approach to understanding individualized instruction and provides an opportunity for educators to challenge and rethink their approach to educating students' behavioral norms. In Stop Dribbling Footballs, Joe is thrust into a new environment without guidance or an ability to meet the expectations of authority figures. Initially, Joe is unable to succeed because he applies a rule set of social norms to the new environment, which leaves him noncompliant. Joe is doing the only thing he knows how to do and is confused that his behavior elicits harsh reactions from those around him. It is not until a coach sits Joe down and explains the rules that Joe begins to develop tools to be successful. "Philip Hickman has done a masterful job of using a children's book to remind all of us how a student's background and 'learned rules' shape their behavior." --Dr.Terry Grier Superintendent of Houston Independent School District Dr. Philip William Van Hickman is passionate about ensuring equal access to education and has demonstrated his resolve to create new and innovative methods of educating young scholars throughout his career.
