December 2020 | 136 pages | Corwin

Your students will change the world!

Today’s learners know they face a complex future. They yearn to live in a world where people are working with purpose, leading with character and making a difference. Learning to identify problems and use smart tools to develop meaningful solutions will help them make a difference in their families, their communities and for society.

They need your help. This inspirational, yet practical guide shows educators how to build on students’ own talents and interests to develop their desire for a better world, entrepreneurial mindset and personal leadership skills. Features include:

?       New learning priorities centered around making a difference

?       A framework based on the 25 most important issues of our time

?       Examples and case studies from a diverse range of projects, people, and places 

Students learn more when they feel a sense of purpose. With adults like you to guide them, they’ll be ready to make a difference—and shape the world to come.
