[This book] has great strengths, especially the detailed profile of students and projects. (Irving Buchen, Education and Business Management Consultant and faculty member at Capella University)
At a time when education is too frequently defined in traditional, outmoded ways, this book describes an excitingly different model of schooling. And it's written by one of the people who made this unusual design a successful reality. Those concerned about the relentless pressures to overstandardize public schools will find in this book a refreshingly different approach. It's not just theory; it's really happening. Passion for Learning tells how you can make it happen in your community. (Ron Brandt, senior research associate for the National Study of School Evaluation)
I enjoyed it greatly. It was straightforward and vivid with examples. Should be a great help for all who believe schools can be so much more powerful for students. (Carl Glickman, Institute for Schools, Education, and Democracy, Inc.)
Minnesota New Country is one of the most important schools in the country: it demonstrates what can happen when students take ownership for their own learning and when teachers take ownership for the learning environment; it demonstrates that small rural schools can thrive and help all students succeed. (Tom Vander Ark, Executive Director, Education, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and former public school superintendent)
Passion for Learning is an excellent blend of analysis of project-based learning and concrete examples of how to create the conditions for students' passionate learning. (Walter Enloe, coauthor of Project Circles and Learning Circles and former lead teacher and principal of the Paideia School and Hiroshima International School)
