About This Book
In this book, William Powell and Ochan Kusuma-Powell provide a practical map to navigate some of today’s most complicated instructional challenges: How do you help all students succeed when every classroom is, in effect, a global classroom? And what does a successful education look like in a world that is growing smaller and flatter every day?
Drawing on research and years of experience in international schools, the authors identify five critical keys to personalizing learning for students who have wildly different cultural, linguistic, and academic backgrounds:
The way to teach now is to focus on your students both as individuals and as members of a multifaceted, interdependent community. Here, you’ll learn how to design and deliver instruction that prepares students not just to meet standards but to live and work together in our complicated, 21st century world.
