I have done a giveaway at the beginning of summer for my first book and thought I should end this glorious summer with one as well. So if you feel like you need some ideas for back to school. If you feel like you know what you are doing but are ready to make some changes. If you feel like there are things you want to do to give students more voice but not quite sure where to start, then here is the e-book for you.
My first book “Passionate Learners – Giving Our Classrooms Back to Our Students” has been helping new and veteran teachers this summer come up with ideas for change. It has helped give some the push they needed to give the classroom back to students, or helped them with new ideas for what they were already doing. I have been excited and humbled by the reviews on Goodreads from educators that are taking the time to read the book such as this one:
In a time when much of education is dictated by curriculum standards and mandated behavior management programs, Pernille offers a fresh perspective on what learning is like from the student perspective. From her asking the question, “would you like being a student in your own classroom?” to her ideas about grading and homework, she offers a vision of truly student-centered education. She does not offer a method or a step-by-step guide to changing one’s teaching. Instead, she empowers teachers to reflect on their experiences, on research, and on their current level of comfort with innovation. After this reflection, teachers are ready to use Pernille’s ideas as a springboard to transform their own classrooms into ones that are truly student-centered.
So what do you have to do to win? Simple, leave a comment, please leave your email, and let me know what you would like to change this year. I will only run this contest to Monday night, August 24th at 8 PM CST so that the winner has a chance to read the book soon.
And if you don’t win, consider reading the book anyway. Wherever you are on your journey, I hope it helps move you forward.
This contest has closed – the winner was….Erin Petley – thank you so much everyone for entering!
