Building a Curious School: Restore the Joy That Brought You to School
 
 

Unleash the power of curiosity and the joy of learning!

Curiosity is hardwired in all of us, but the longer students stay in school, the less curious they become.  Why is that?

 

Building a Curious School uncovers the many subtle ways in which formal education seems to hinder our natural curiosity and reveals how rekindling a sense of wonder in schools can prime the pump for learning, foster a culture of engagement, grow better educational leaders, and prepare students and staff to lead more fulfilling lives. Grounded in research, this engaging examination of curiosity shows educators how to intentionally cultivate inquisitiveness and wonder in teaching and learning. It includes 

 

·         A plethora of activities, ideas, and tips to encourage curiosity

·         Compelling examples of curiosity at work in schools, businesses, and communities

·         Tools for supporting curiosity in ways that spark meaningful conversations and promote empathy, equity, and social-emotional learning

 

If you′ve ever wondered anything, really—just out of curiosity—then you′ve got what it takes to lead your school to restored curiosity and your students to wellbeing and success. 

 

"This book lays out a vision as to the way schools can and should be approached to stimulate curiosity as a natural part of the teaching/learning process."

--Robert J. Marzano, Cofounder and CAO, Marzano Resources, Cofounder and Strategic Advisor, Marzano Research

 

"A powerful ‘must-read’ for all educators who want learning not only to be lively but also impactful and meaningful for every student."
