Description


When educators embrace student-centered learning, classrooms transform, authentic learning comes alive, and outcomes improve. A culmination of Lee Watanabe-Crockett's ten-plus years of work with schools around the world, Future-Focused Learning details ten core shifts of practice--along with simple microshifts--you can use with your students immediately, regardless of your core curriculum or instructional pedagogy. These proven shifts offer a clear pathway for taking the great work you are already doing and making it exceptional.

Use this book to improve student-centered learning in the classroom and support authentic learning outcomes for the 21st century:

  • Study over 50 specific examples of classroom microshifts that make the larger shifts in practice simple to achieve as a collective group.

  • Explore topics in student-centered learning competencies such as project-based learning, essential questions, STEM education, and digital skills.
  • Learn why fostering connections to learning --from improved emotional connections to the value of clear learning intentions--improve student-centered learning outcomes and higher-order thinking.
  • Improve formative assessment practices to be more mindful, ask the essential questions, and further student engagement by involving them in the assessment process.
