This is the bibliography for the workbook at the Continuum workshop in Madrid (2011).

Advocacy Begins at Home by Gary Green 2010

Three titles in the Taking the ... Forward series. The first was for the PYP. In 2011, two other titles were added to the series - for the MYP and the IBDP respectively. A fourth, on the Continuum, is planned for 2012. (The MYP, DP and Continuum titles are edited by Mary Hayden and Jeff Thompson, for John Catt Educational Ltd.) Please note that there is a chapter on the role of the library in the DP volume.
