I recently read the book, Building School 2.0. The book is written with 95 essays on changes that should be made in education to help us meet the needs of every child.
I love the essays – they get you fired up and start you thinking. How could this look in my school? In my district? In my classroom?
What if a campus looked at their problem of practice, and asked teachers to pick and read just one of the many essays. After teachers choose the essay that hits home with them, they make goals on how to improve their classroom. Just a few baby steps here and there, nothing huge or grand, but progress.
Imagine if every campus did this – a few baby steps at a time, how a school would improve for each child. How learning would improve across the board for all children.
Here is my Goodreads review of Building School 2.0
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a good book with multiple essay-style chapters that bring to light some of the changes that need to happen in education. These essays do highlight the changes that need to happen to assure that we educate all children, and not just a few.
This book really fired me up to share with others, I can see this being a great read as a faculty. I’ll write more about that on my blog – but this is a great book to start discussions amongst educators.
