The Take-Action Guide to World Class Learners Book 2
How to "Make" Product-Oriented Learning Happen



April 2016 | 168 pages | Corwin

Your blueprint for product-oriented learning 

The World Class Learners series provides the most complete information available on designing twenty-first century schools poised to leapfrog into the future! These practice-oriented books expand on Dr. Yong Zhao’s acclaimed World Class Learners, which presents a new framework for cultivating creative and entrepreneurial students. Now, with this second book in the follow-up three-volume set, Zhao digs much deeper, revealing how exactly to put that framework into effect. 

The second book in the series outlines how to

  • Understand entrepreneurship and project-oriented learning
  • Implement “making-as-learning” POL curriculum 
  • Help students create quality entrepreneurial products
  • Understand ownership, copyrights, and patents
     

Implement Zhao’s new paradigm shift one phase at a time, starting with any book, depending upon your priorities. Better yet, read all three volumes for a complete blueprint to entrepreneur-minded schooling. 

“The ideal school should provide opportunities and resources to enable students to personalize their educational experiences instead of receiving a uniform standardized, externally prescribed, education diet.”
-Yong Zhao
