it had a lot of research of successful people from the past and the future to bring on a newer term of what element means to the author and stands firm in what he believes in against the current education system.
I'll take my time to re listen to the book at a slower pace for the examples that he listed, and perhaps use them in my educational purposes.
I enjoyed the stories the author used. While these alone could merit a book, he uses them to point out a goal, several problems, and several solutions. The author points out that the solutions presented are not the end goal, but the betterment of society as a whole through creative thinking.
This was a wonderful look at what makes individuals succeed as well as a history of our educational system and standardized testing, told through many real life stories.
Wonderful insight into my own life and what I keep searching for to find fulfillment. Sir Ken is thoughtful in his approach and fills the book with examples to justify his points.
Love everything about this book and onto reading Finding the element !!
Really all the explanations, the examples , how it's narrated , makes it a number one !!
A book that should be read by every educator across the US. We each have something to offer the world if someone would help us find that greatness.
