Deeper Learning: How Eight Innovative Public Schools Are Transforming Education in the Twenty-First Century
Dime-a-dozen ideas for reforming education seem to be everywhere these days; few actually transform the everyday experience of the 50-million-plus students who are regularly subjected to traditional lecturing, note-taking, and rote learning--often with dismal results. Enter Deeper Learning, "a fast read [that] will interest educators who want to produce self-motivated, passionate learners" (Library Journal) by education strategist Monica R. Martinez and sociologist Dennis McGrath.
Offering "uplifting" (Kirkus Reviews) anecdotes in what Tom Carroll of the National Commission on Teaching and America's Future calls a "compelling book [that] reveals how eight schools are navigating the transition from industrial-era teaching to twenty-first-century learning," the authors provide a blueprint for creating flexible environments that put students at the helm of their own collaborative learning experience. This paperback edition features a foreword by renowned education advocate Russlynn Ali on why America needs a new way of learning and will empower and inspire educators everywhere to address the need for schools to be genuinely innovative.
Praise for Deeper Learning"A quick and lively read, with well-told anecdotes . . . The book delivers what it promises: inspiring stories that show you what is possible."--Getting Smart
