Reach for Greatness

Reach for Greatness : Personalizable Education for All Children

Based on current understanding of human abilities, every child can be great. This book brings research from different disciplines to show where children's strengths and passions can be found and argues that in order to teach for greatness, we need to make education personalizable. The author uses examples and stories throughout the book to describe practices that have gone awry and, more importantly, ones that have worked, especially with disadvantaged children.
