Loving Learning: A New Must-Read for All Educators

Loving Learning: A New Must-Read for All Educators | Blog Blasts | Scoop.it

We need stories of hope perhaps more than we need new ideas on curriculum, formative assessment, or instructional strategies. Stories of hope can nurture our spirits.  And then Tom Little's new book, Loving Learning: How Progressive Education Can Save America's Schools, came into my hands. My response is simple and straightforward: Get this book. Read it. It'll nurture your educator spirit. And if yours is anything like mine -- lagging sometimes in the current big picture of our education system -- you need it. And you'll love it.
