What Parents and Educators are Saying

“My name is Troy Wittmann. I have worked in education for nearly 30 years, in Wisconsin, USA. I have written several books and articles on appropriate methods for involving children in the learning process. I also make active learning videos and other materials available to the public at www.teachingrocks.com. Recently, I had the pleasure of reviewing the Genius & His Friends program created by Wendy Marquenie. It is based on the legendary work of Bob Proctor. Bob Proctor is an education and life coach and his name is synonymous with success. Through this program and her unrelenting dedication to children, I truly believe Wendy Marquenie’s name will also be equated with success. Wendy is onto something exciting and inspiring with this professional, detailed, and thought provoking resource. Parents could effortlessly include this program into the raising and developing of their children. Genius & His Friends program will help parents raise assertive, passionate,
resourceful, and creative children. Teachers could easily incorporate this program into their lessons allowing children to see their true value from an early age. I am proud of what Wendy Marquenie has created here. I know the Genius & His Friends program will make a positive impact because it is research-based and extremely authentic and honest in its approach to helping children succeed.”

“Here, Wendy Marquenie has provided an accessible tool for young minds to facilitate them
in exploring the concept of growth mind-set, and this will undoubtedly help shape little people into positive contributors and healthy beings.

This instructional guide offers extensive plans and engaging activities to support deep understanding and curriculum learning in a way that is accessible to busy teachers. It balances the broad reading curriculum expectations beautifully within each easy to follow lesson.

I often hear and see requests from colleagues, reaching out for direction in choosing which quality guided reading plans to use. From experience, trawling through class texts and curriculum objectives whilst trying to piece together a week’s worth of exciting lessons can put a drain on family life.

This instructional guide has rescued our Sundays by providing a ‘pick up and go’ tool with
everything needed for quality guided reading lessons. Thank you!.”

“As a teacher, I truly believe that curriculum maps highlight an integral part of the learning process when connected to books. Wendy Marquenie and Charlotte Taylor have collaborated, as teachers, to create the ‘Genius  Series‘ curriculum plan, which helps teachers across the globe.

Connecting the books to lesson plans and some educational tools, will surely assist educators in sustaining a highly effective teaching system which focus on reading, writing, song, theatre, music and other classroom activities.

The map, coupled with lessons, tools and tasks is sure to give teachers back their time while honing in on resources that have been devised specifically for international school standards. I can’t wait to utilize this map, as well as the books for my own online classes while sharing the Genius books as a resource for budding young minds.  

The OAO (Online Author’s  Office) is proud to be part of this collaborative educational process.
