Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, August 18, 2014 8:51 AM

What looks, on its surface, to be a simple shift can have some powerful consequences with regards to student engagement. I believe Dr. Robinson has hit the nail on the head - especially with libraries. School libraries are the PERFECT place to realize this shift and exemplary librarians have been doing just that for a while now.

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, August 11, 2014 3:35 PM

While some may bristle at the idea of planning a "unit" these ideas can really get you thinking differently about instructional delivery. Read it for yourself and then keep it in your back pocket when teachers come to you for suggestions!

Fiona Davidson's curator insight, August 14, 2014 3:31 AM
