One of our tasks for the Summer Institute is for each participant to present one chapter from Anderson’s work. While Anderson’s text is the classic in the field, it is now approaching its 30th anniversary. We are asking participants to identify resources they would use if they were to update the chapter they covered by selecting 5 recently published resources to share with the group.
