Editorial Reviews


"Would your class fall apart without you? Could your students learn ifyou didn't speak for an entire day? In Learn Like a PIRATE, Paul Solarzshares methods you can use to create a student-led classroom -- andprepare your students for a lifetime of self-led learning."
- Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

While many teachers tend to be at the helm of the ship, Learn Like aPIRATE is a model for teaching from the crow's nest: having a clearvantage point of the class and its direction, but letting students steer their learning. Paul has recaptured the "pirate" spirit in his own way. Diving into the activities of his classroom, we see how students takecharge of their learning--and how daring teachers make it happen."
- Angela Maiers, Founder of Choose2Matter and author of The Passion Driven Classroom and Classroom Habitudes

"For learning to be relevant and meaningful in the eyes of studentstoday school experiences need to be more learner centric. Paul Solarzhas crafted the perfect guide to help invigorate classroom learningexperiences to empower students to take ownership over their learning."
- Eric Sheninger, Senior Fellow at the International Center for Leadership in Education and author of Digital Leadership

"There are countless books and articles on how to change school systemsto pave the way for 21st Century Education, and most of them are, atbest, wishful thinking for an implicitly distant future. Paul Solarz'sbook is invaluable in that it tells the real life story of how he isdoing that right now in his classroom."
- Gabriel Rshaid, Professional Development Associate at The Leadership and Learning Center and author of The 21st-Century Classroom

About the Author

Paul Solarz has been teaching at Westgate Elementary School in Arlington Heights, Illinois, since 1999.  He advocates for student-centered teaching practices and a focus on 21st Century skills attainment.  Fortunately for Paul, his school and district administration have given him the autonomy to take risks and be innovative over the years. This has led to his unique style of teaching and the motivation to share his strategies with the broader education community. 

Recently, Paul was named a Top 50 Finalist for the Varkey GEMS Global Teacher Prize.  The Global Teacher Award seeks to do for education what the Nobel Prize has done for science, literature, and peace.  He was also named the 2014 Educator of the Year by ICE (Illinois Computing Educators) for his work with integrating technology effectively in his classroom.  He earned his masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Illinois State University and is a National Board Certified Teacher.  He also earned his bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Winona State University in Minnesota.
