Creating Innovators

I borrowed this book from the library, but after reading the first 5 pages, I rushed out to get my own copy so I could write all over it–that’s how good it was.

What I really liked about this book was that Wagner redefines what it is not only to be an innovator, but how to teach children how to be innovators as well. He takes an in-depth look at how we can teach kids how to learn from their mistakes, how we can teach them to work together, and how we can spark their creativity. He gets into the nitty gritty of teaching content versus teaching processes, and I particularly liked his view on how we can stimulate intrinsic motivation. All in all, “a must-read for anyone interested in the education of our nation”–Clayton Christensen
