Description

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

"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

"Communities across the nation must use the principles outlined in this book to fundamentally transform schools."
--Warren Simmons, executive director, Annenberg Institute for School Reform at Brown University

"The best book on education I have read in 2014 . . . I will be sharing this with every educator that I know."
--Aaron Maurer, Iowa Teacher of the Year Finalist, Bettendorf Schools

"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 Teaching
