book club: why don’t students like school?

The Castle Summer Book Club’s discussion of Daniel T. Willingham’s book Why Don’t Students Like School? is underway.

It’s too late to join the book club proper, but the discussion is open to the general public – you can’t post, but you can add comments. The link I’ve provided above is to the Group 2 (my group) discussion, but if you scroll down to the “Getting Started” post, you will find links to the other three groups as well.

In Group 2, we’re already discussing:

  • cultivating curiosity
  • whether there is any hope for disadvantaged students
  • lesson diaries
  • solutions to the ills of public education
  • chunking learning
  • teacher/student relationships
  • student choices…
  • …and more! Come take a look around.
