Inspirational stories of engaging, real-life educational experiences

Everyone has a personal learning story, a time when they became actively engaged in their own education. Maybe it was an especially challenging teacher, or a uniquely supportive environment, or a collaborative classroom. In Faces of Learning, both well-known public figures, such as Arne Duncan and Al Franken, and ordinary Americans recall the moments when they truly learned something.

  • Includes stories from people of all different backgrounds and from all over the country
  • The stories are grouped into categories by theme like "relevant" and "experiential" to help reveal the common characteristics of what works in education
  • Each chapter ends with five things you can do to improve your own learning, that of your students, and of all Americans
  • Readers can visit the companion website www.facesoflearning.net to share their own stories of educational success and find out what else they can do.
