Course Description

Does it seem that it is becoming harder and harder to get kids interested and engaged in learning? As educators, do we sometimes feel that our obsession with high stakes testing has sapped the joy out of learning? In Most Likely to Succeed, the authors not only point out where we have gone wrong, but also present a number of individuals and institutions that understand the importance of bringing joy and a creative approach back to teaching. These promising approaches focus more on teaching cognitive and social skills, rather than rote memorization. They focus on building character, rather than simply test preparation. They focus on self-discovery, rather than fit everyone into the same mold. This book gives educators a sense of hope and permission to do what we have always known to be best; bring joy and a passion for learning back to the classroom.
