For teachers who want to encourage genuine learning instead of just " getting by"
For too many, the focus of schooling is not genuine learning, but rather " getting it done and moving on to the next thing." Robert Fried argues that we have the power to change the rules of this " game" of school, and bring joy back into the schoolhouse. Combining his own wisdom and experience with insights from K 12 students, Fried examines the problem and demonstrates what we can do to reclaim and refocus the educational experience. He offers workable solutions for teachers that take into account the current climate of testing, accountability, and budget shortfalls.
