Schools for All Kinds of Minds: Boosting Student Success by Embracing Learning Variation

Descriere: Praise for "Schools for All Kinds of Minds" "Any educator who is genuinely interested in improving student success, and their own knowledge about learning, will benefit from the research and practical suggestions in this book."

–Ian Adamson, retired superintendent, Alternative Programs, Curriculum, Instruction and Special Education Support Services, Peel School District Board, Ontario, Canada ""Schools for All Kinds of Minds" is for all kinds of teachers. There’s more than one way to learn and more than one way to teach, but only one way to have high expectations for the students in our schools. This book helps teachers with high expectations turn that thought into action."
–Mike Feinberg, cofounder of KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program) "Provides school leaders with a framework and strategies that will help them move beyond an ever-growing list of accountability mandates to a focus on all students as learners that can reach their true potential."
–Eric Hirsch, director of special projects, New Teacher Center "In the fast-moving world of educational reform, this work stresses the importance of putting the science of learning front and center in the current debate about how to improve schools. I highly recommend it to a wide audience of those committed to the maxim that effective teaching results in higher student learning."
–Michael Spagna, Ph.D., dean, Michael D. Eisner College of Education, California State University, Northridge "This essential book puts the customization of school-based learning opportunities in the spotlight with accessible descriptions of how our brains work and concrete tools for maximizing their full potential. A must-read for educational leaders at all levels of school systems."
–Sandra J. Stein, CEO, NYC Leadership Academy "Students everywhere deserve principals, district leaders, and teacher leaders who have not only read this book, but who also have taken the ideas in it to heart–and who have worked in partnership with students and their families to create schools and classrooms that teach all kinds of minds."
–Gene Thompson-Grove, director, professional development and special initiatives, Public Schools of Brookline and national facilitator, The School Reform Initiative, Inc.
