"This book deserves to be powerfully influential." (Mel Levine)
The narrator is horrible. As a person that uses audio books as an accommodation to access these books as quickly as others. But this audio book narration is the worst! It sounds like a robot is reading it. Pauses in weird spots and emphasis in weird parts as well.
if you can read all three.
read this book first
then Creating Innovators
and then Most Likely to Succeed
if you plan on reading only one or two. then "Most likely to Succeed" is the best choice. and creating innovators should come next.
that is not to knock this work. this book contains years of research and expertise and brilliant solutions to our educational impasse
making school spiritually fulfilling and academically rewarding is not only possible and desirable but absolutely necessary for the 21st century
a 21st century world needs to raise children who will be crtical thinkers, expert communicators, skilled collaborators, and innovative creators
we cannot rely on a 20th education for 21st century succees
anyone who wants to change the world for the better must read tony wagner. his ideas are absolutely vital.
I have a rather eclectic love of books. I know what I like and I tend not to be a severe critic. If I enjoyed it, it gets 4 or 5 stars.
As an educator, I found this book to be old news. If you are a parent, it might help to explain why the Common Core was founded and why education needs to change in order for your child to be productive in the future. I think it does a good job of explaining why the changes are needed and I think everyone who is against the Common Core really should read it.
I have tried to listen to this book because the topic, research and assertions really interest me. However, the robotic narration makes it very difficult to tolerate.
L.J. Ganser, who narrated Class Warfare did a much better job.
