As far back as Confucius, philosophers and experts have upheld the virtues of learning by doing rather than by listening. Yet U.S. schools continue their attempts to engage students through conventional methods like lectures and note-taking, frequently with dismal results. In Untitled on deeper learning, Monica Martinez and Dennis McGrath propose an exciting new framework for American schooling that leads to more meaningful, deeper learning—learning that engages every student and inspires each young person to reach her full potential.With captivating, honest examples from eight innovative and diverse schools across the nation, this cutting-edge book charts the path to crafting learning environments that are adaptive and flexible- these schools not only enable educators to meet the widely varied needs of individual students, but also offer integrative and interactive approaches that include real life, project-based education.

From instituting (dis)orientation rituals and proactively empowering teachers to designing a student-led interdisciplinary project on American poverty and revealing the virtues of integrating (not relying on) new technology, readers will be fascinated by what deeper learning looks and feels like in real schools day-to-day.In an ever-changing economy and world it’s no secret that becoming a well-rounded, dynamic, and engaged adult requires nurture and development in multiple areas.

Untitled on deeper learning gives teachers and parents the tools they have been searching for to support young people in becoming critical thinkers, collaborators, and creators of a better world.
