John V. Antonetti is the former director of K–12 curriculum in the Sheridan School District, Ark. Once described by Larry Lezotte as a 'teacher's teacher," Antonetti has had the great fortune to teach at all grade levels. He has taught kindergarten, AP Chemistry, and most grades in between.
He has worked with three districts that won the nationally recognized Broad Prize for Urban Education. He works with schools and districts throughout North America on student engagement, writing, rigor and relevance, and high-yield best practices.
Antonetti can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To truly engage students in worthwhile, rigorous cognition, a profound shift is necessary: a shift in emphasis from teaching to learning. Put another way, we know that whoever is doing the work is also doing the learning—and in most classrooms, teachers are working much too hard.
