As the weather heats up and the summer months draw near, people everywhere are on the hunt for summer reading material. To help in this search—while also engaging individuals in a robust discussion on education policy—the Alliance for Excellent Education is proud to announce its summer Alliance Book Club webinar series (#All4edBook).
The debut book club selection is Leaving to Learn: How Out-of-School Learning Increases Student Engagement and Reduces Dropout Rates, written by Elliot Washor and Charles Mojokowski. In Leaving to Learn, Washor and Majokowski argue that efforts to stem the dropout crisis and engage all young people in deep and productive learning will continue to fall short unless educators address the problem of student disengagement.
During the webinar, Washor and Mojokowski explore alternative approaches that provide many experiences in which all students do some of their learning outside of school as a formal part of their program of study. Alliance President Bob Wise will moderate the discussion and the authors will also address questions and comments submitted by webinar viewers from around the country.
