"A must-read for anyone who aspires to really teach.”
— Tony Wagner, Harvard ILab Expert in Residence, Author of The Global Achievement Gap and Creating Innovators.”
When students hear a lecture or read from a textbook, more often than not that information is stored in the limbic system, the short-term memory part of the brain, and discarded after the test. Which raises an important question: What’s the point?
But when students are immersed in a story, one where they are the characters and teachers are their guides, a transformation takes place. The classroom becomes a setting. Conflict becomes authentic. And school becomes engaging.
And that is something students will not forget.
