    Book details


Educators have long upheld the virtues of learning by doing. Still, the majority of U.S. Schools continue their attempts to engage some 50 million students through conventional methods such as lectures, note-taking, and rote-learning. In Deeper Learning, Monica Martinez, an award-winning education strategist, and education sociologist Dennis McGrath offer a transformative framework for learning with the potential to support the development and success of every student.

"In the tradition of Ted Sizer, Pedro Noguera, Gloria Ladson-Billings, and other innovative thought leaders, Martinez and McGrath provide inspiring examples of what deeper, student-centered learning looks like in practice. Communities across the nation must use the principles outlined in this book to fundamentally transform schools into places where Deeper Learning flourishes as a rule rather than an exception."--Warren Simmons, executive director, Annenberg Institute for School Reform at Brown University "What do 'reinvented' schools look like--schools that prepare all students for college and for an innovation economy? This fascinating series of portraits offers a road map for the future of education. "Deeper Learning" is a wonderful book that should be read by every educator, parent, and policy maker."--Tony Wagner, Harvard University, and author of "Creating Innovators" and "The Global Achievement Gap" ""Deeper Learning" is both informed and informative. From California to Maine, eight exemplary public schools show us how teachers and principals are finding creative ways to impact the learning and life chances of high school youth. This book is a clarion call to celebrate the imagination and commitment of educators in these and other stellar public schools."--Mary Brabeck, Gale and Ira Drukier Dean, NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development "This compelling book reveals how eight schools are navigating the transition from industrial-era teaching to twenty-first-century learning. A rare blend of inspiration and practical action."--Tom Carroll, president emeritus, National Commission on Teaching and America's Future ""Deeper Learning" is a refreshing reminder that the best schools are defined by a commitment to motivating, challenging, and connecting students to their own lives and their own learning."--Elena Silva, senior associate, Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teachingls charge"It is a fast read and will interest educators who want to produce self-motivated, passionate learners with a goal that looks beyond passing tomorrow's quiz."Library Journal "In the tradition of Ted Sizer, Pedro Noguera, Gloria Ladson-Billings, and other innovative thought leaders, Martinez and McGrath provide inspiring examples of what deeper, student-centered learning looks like in practice.
