"Amy Sandvold and Angela Maiers provide an essential lesson: passion is not a subject to be taught or a behavior to be instilled into children, but a way of life for teachers and students alike. While education policies and fads come and go, the fire-in-the-belly passion that the authors describe will sustain students and teachers in their learning journeys extending far beyond the schoolroom walls. Too many advocates of student creativity reduce teaching techniques to the simplistic and unhelpful prescription too "think outside the box," while Sandvold and Maiers remind us that rigor and accountability are the hallmarks of the passionate and creative student and teacher. Filled with real-world examples and practical advice, this book deserves to be the subject of collaborative by teachers in every discipline."
Douglas Reeves, PhD, Author of The Myth of the Muse: Supporting Virtues That Inspire Creativity and Founder, Creative Leadership Solutions
"There is no question today that what students need is educators who create environments where innovation in learning and passion found are cornerstones. Angela and Amy have written a text that shows all educators and leaders what helping students find that passion means and how they can help students harness it to do amazing things for themselves, their learning and their world. Not only do Angela and Amy provide thoughtful examples; they provide guidance so that every student in every classroom can benefit from this passion-driven learning."
Steven W. Anderson, Digital Learning and Relationship Evangelist, @web20classroom
"Recent data on student engagement has shown that the longer students are in our K-12 system of education, the less engaged they become. Maiers and Sandvold share a roadmap and the mindset needed to disrupt this trend by addressing the "passion gap" head on, so that learners are empowered to unleash their untapped potential, and gain the skills, motivation, and direction needed for future success. Schools must liberate today’s modern learners, and implementing a passion-driven classroom will make the once unthinkable possible. Read this book to awaken a new reality in your school or classroom."
