Kay Tucker talks about World Class Learning at LTE
As some of you may know, over the past year and a half I have worked with Yong Zhao and a global team of writers to produce three follow-up books to be used as guides to implement his thinking as first presented in World Class Learners: Educating Creative and Entrepreneurial Students (Zhao 2012)
I am so excited to say that the first book is now available and the other two will be available in February and March of next year. The specific focus of the three books defines the parts that make up the whole for a model of World Class Learning.
- WHAT is defined in: The Take-Action Guide to World Class Learners Book 1: How to Make Personalization and Student Autonomy Happen
- HOW is defined in: The Take-Action Guide to World Class Learners Book 2: How to “Make” Product-Oriented Learning Happen
- WHERE is defined in: The Take-Action Guide to World Class Learners Book 3: How to Create a Campus Without Borders
I wrote three of the chapters in the first book and referred to Lone Tree Elementary several times. Teachers at LTE have been working hard to merge the best of Highly Effective Teaching (HET) with many of the ideas presented in these books. Here is the link to a blog I wrote for Corwin Press where I also referred to our work at LTE. Global Stage: The WHERE of World Class Learning
As stated in the blog, this journey greatly increased my personal knowledge of some amazing things happening around the world in education. I think we can all feel great pride in the fact that many amazing things are also happening at Lone Tree Elementary that set us apart as an exceptional school.
Feel free to drop by to discuss what we are doing and how this work ultimately impacts our students.
