Unleashing Student Superpowers: Practical Teaching Strategies for 21st Century Students
 
 
Turn students into learning superheroes!

Like we see in the movies, no two superheroes learn to use their powers in the exact same way. Each of your students has superpowers hidden inside, and you hold the keys to unlock them. With this cutting-edge handbook, you’ll turn your classroom into a place where students don’t just receive an education—they use their powers to create it.

Discover specific, ready-to-use instructional journeys designed to foster an inquiry-based, student-driven learning environment. Each research-based journey

  • Supports one of the six student superpowers: Wondering, Curating, Designing, Digital Inking, Gaming, and Connecting
  • Encourages students to think deeply; as required by the CCSS and NGSS
  • Includes step-by-step lesson frameworks, aligned with the Common Core, that fit into your regular day

Tear through the obstacles of achievement and show your students that anything is possible! 

"Ferguson and Swanson explain why tapping into student competencies is imperative and show the road-map for matching engaging activities to specific standards. So many books on the market explain why a shift is needed; this one gives you the tools to do it."
—Erin Klein, Teacher
Michigan Reading Association, Bloomfield Hills

"
Unleashing Student Superpowers is an amazing resource for the creation and enhancement of student-centered classroom environments that focus on high-level questioning, inquiry, and passion-based learning. Each Superpower theme provides linkages to the Common Core and flexible lesson plans that promote relevant skills for students’ learning."
—Victoria Olson, Teacher 
West Langley Elementary School, Canada
