Pick My Brain! (If You Want…)

With the release of my book “Passionate Learners – Giving Our Classrooms Back to Our Students” we thought it would be nice to have a chance to ask me questions, brainstorm ideas, and discuss anything and everything that has to do with how you are trying to implement change in your classroom or school.  So please join me this Sunday, June 22, at 7 PM EDT for a webinar to do just that.  No question is too big or little.

Here is the official information and how to join me.

Join us: Passionate Learners Live Webinar with author Pernille Ripp

PassionateLrnrs-cvr-standingAfter several years of wondering why her own classroom didn’t match her vision of students driven by curiosity and passion, Pernille Ripp discovered that even the smallest changes can make monumental differences. Trusting yourself and your students and sharing the power of the classroom with them can lead to great teaching and learning even within the boundaries of our confining standards, testing obsessions and mandatory curriculums.

In her new book Passionate Learners, Pernille tells us what and how she changed—and how her students changed with her. We learn about the little and not-so-little things she did over the course of a transformational year, so that she could shift the responsibility for learning – the joy and wonder of it – to the kids themselves.

Now that this book has been out for a few weeks and hundreds of you have read her story, we want to give you the chance to ask your burning questions and discuss your own student-centered classrooms.
