It is engagement through wonder, curiosity, and joy in learning –not test scores– that is the true indication of effectiveness in education.
A Gift of Wonder, A True Story Showing School As It Should Be, is a new book available that shows this engagement and the type of teaching that supports it. We need many such stories about ways to work with the power of intrinsic motivation at school. These positive stories can help transform our national vision of the future of schooling.
A Gift of Wonder is available from Amazon
