A must read! I read it over my holidays and found it to be extremely motivating on a personal level. Now I can’t wait to have my students back in school!
I think there are many teachers who need the kind of push and encouragement this book offers in order to step out and begin implementing their innovations. I am going to buy some copies to share with other teachers.
Edupreneur is funny, real and practical.
I would absolutely recommend this book. It has so many great ideas for things that teachers and administrators can try in order to solve any problem.
I read and took notes on the entire book in one night! I felt myself saying ‘aha’ all the time. This will be part of my instructional coaches library and mentoring program.
The personal stories of the authors and other teachers, the steps and the short sharp ideas all work so well together. A great ‘play by play guide’ to innovating in our schools.
This is a book written for teachers. Practical, not too academic and avoids the pie in the sky style we so often see.
Edupreneur gives teachers the "how." You already know what needs to be done to improve education, but you may lack the support and processes to bring it to life—and that's where this book comes in. You'll walk through the four stages of innovation—dreaming, digging, making and sharing—and learn how to unleash ground-shaking change from the classroom up. Straightforward, highly practical and kick-in-the-pants inspirational, this book is your new companion for making education work. You'll read about passionate teachers who have raised attendance from 40% to 90%; you'll read about principals who took on the worst-performing schools and turned them around; you'll read about leaders who had the courage to take the reins of a school and turn it from good to great—and you'll learn how they did it and how you're entirely capable of the same kind of revolutionary change.This is a book not just for challenging schools, but for all educators who are passionate about providing a great education for every student, everyday.
