Description-

  • Transformation of public education requires the reawakening of the sleeping giant in the room: the learners. Students, teachers, and principals must develop a learner-centric, standards-driven school. Reawakening the Learner is a guide to creating just such an environment. Continua describe the journey of teachers, teacher leaders, and principals in partnering with learners. Adult-driven routines must be replaced with learner-centric practices.

    All stakeholders must identify a common moral purpose, create a culture that supports change, and commit to the learner improvement cycle. Common moral purpose must be driven by beliefs and behaviors that support all learners to proficiency. School culture must be developed to be ready for change, have enough trust in one another to doubt current practices, and develop collective efficacy. This new culture will support the components of the learner improvement cycle (assessment, evaluation, planning, and learning) by involving the learners during each step of the cycle.

    The authors call for national dialogue with educational experts to reinvent public education, where all students are given enough time and support to reach proficiency on the standards.

Reviews-

  • Nikolaus Namba, chief academic officer, Ingenium Schools, Compton and Woodland Hills, California Re-Awakening the Learner is a rousing text that will be invaluable for any teacher, administrator, or parent. The book goes beyond describing small changes like introducing new instructional strategies and focuses on creating the conditions for students to "reawaken" into interdependent learners. The book is invaluable to educators because it alone can be used as a step-by-step guide for making the dramatic changes necessary to shift into a true twenty-first century educational system. The insight provided by stories from students, parents, teachers, and administrators who have implemented this transformation provide real-world examples of successes and failures that are priceless. This book belongs on all educators "must-read" list!
  • Alison Sholler Mund, elementary education teacher, Adams County School District 50, Westminster, Colorado Re-Awakening the Learner provides a comprehensive process to bring about the necessary change in public education.
  • Katheryn Keyes, assistant principal, Boulder High School, Boulder, Colorado This is not a book for failing schools. It is a book that should join all of us: parents, students, policy makers, teachers, principals, school boards and businesses to the national dialogue about educating our next generation of citizens. It tackles educational reform, not classroom by classroom, or school by school but as a national system. The authors point out real problems in our school system and offer real solutions using a framework that can be implemented at all levels of the system. Finally, a book that blends the theoretical need for systemic change with real-life practical application! We owe it to our children to read Re-Awakening the Learner.
  • Brian Hanson, superintendent of schools, Mancos Re6 School District, Mancos, Colorado There has never been a greater sense of urgency for educational reform in our country than now. Today's students cannot wait any longer for us to bring education into the twenty-first century. The major themes presented by Mr. Gene Giddings and Dr. Copper Stoll are the perfect blueprint for any district to move forward with real sustained educational reform.
