Equip Your Students To Create Their Own Intellectual Destiny! The best educators are the ones who empower students to ask intelligent questions and persistently seek the answers, stepping in only when necessary. Fostering rigorous, inquiry-based learning requires consistent systems backed by research and data. And these are precisely what you’ll find in this book, which details: • A groundbreaking new approach to content delivery and instruction, geared towards maximizing student discovery, deep thought, exploration, and creativity • Why educators must let go of student IQ as a concept that influences teaching methods in any way • How to create a protocol-driven environment that fosters deep sharing and reflection With this book, you can give your students the two greatest gifts possible: Intellectual confidence and a growth mindset. “An urgent call for redefining educational outcomes and a compelling argument for personalization of education. Markham convincingly explains why education is much more than developing cognitive skills and proposes practical ways to cultivate what matters.” Yong Zhao, Director, Institute of Global and Online Education, University of Oregon “This book will resonate with teachers. Joyful learning that engages both heart and brain is not in opposition to today’s rigorous standards. As Markham explains, students will not be prepared to tackle the challenges ahead unless they learn to think, collaborate, communicate, and feel. This book outlines practical steps to create the culture of inquiry that all children deserve.” Suzie Boss Author of Bringing Innovation to School and Edutopia blogger.
