After working with each other in a number of professional organizations, John Antonetti and Jim Garver formed Colleagues on Call in 2006. The two men had very different backgrounds and political viewpoints, yet they found themselves in perfect agreement about instruction and school improvement. Antonetti and Garver conducted 8 annual Engagement Camps (conferences) for teachers across the country. Their final project together was the publishing of the ASCD best-seller 17,000 Classroom Visits Can’t be Wrong: Strategies that Engage Students, Promote Active Learning, and Boost Achievement.
