Welcome to Maupin House by Capstone Professional

Capstone Professional publishes educational resources under the imprint of Maupin House.  Our materials support K-12 educators as they create 21st century classrooms and respond to the demands of state and national standards, such as the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts and the Next Generation Science Standards. Capstone Professional focuses on topics such as reading comprehension, close reading, writing in the content areas, teaching with graphics in the classroom, and creating safe school environments. Capstone Professional authors are educators and consultants, teachers and experts in their fields.

A tenet for Capstone Professional is to support teachers, administrators, content-area specialists, students, and parents in becoming engaged in content and excited about learning.
