Stenhouse Publishers started in 1993 with two employees in a one-room attic walk-up in York, Maine. That fall we published six titles. Today, a dozen employees work in our offices overlooking Monument Square in the heart of Portland, Maine, editing, marketing and producing a catalogue of more than 200 books and videos.
Stenhouse publishes professional development books and videos by teachers and for teachers. All of our titles are grounded in a philosophy of education that respects both teacher and learner. And all are designed to integrate theory, research, and practice in an accessible manner.
Good professional resources encourage teachers to step back and ponder important questions, such as: "Why do we teach these concepts in these ways?," and the closely related, "Is there a better way?"
Our titles cover a range of literacy topics, from reading comprehension to classroom management. On a larger level, our publishing program strives to support professional growth and create a culture of inquiry for teachers at all stages of their career and for learners of all ages.
Stenhouse is part of Highlights for Children and a division of their subsidiary Teachers' Publishing Group.
