Overview
As a caring, dedicated teacher, parent, or educational professional, are you feeling more and more frustrated by the confines of today's educational environment? Rebel Educator takes a tough, honest look at our modern educational system while providing actionable insights and ideas to fill the classroom with imagination and curiosity. Anyone who works with children will feel the possibilities and excitement as they learn how to shift their approach—and the mindset of their students—from traditional memorization to active inquiry, problem-solving, and collaboration through interdisciplinary, project-based learning. Grounded in neuroscience yet presented without academic jargon, making it inviting and accessible to parents and teachers alike, Rebel Educator makes a strong, compelling argument for a new educational model for our children—one that teaches them to enjoy learning, bolsters their confidence, and prepares them with the teamwork skills that are vital to long-term life success.
