Angela Maiers' Publications

  • The Passion Driven Classroom

    • Eye On Education
    • January 3, 2011
    Authors: Angela Maiers

    Discover ways to cultivate a thriving and passionate community of learners – in your classroom! In this book, educators and consultants Angela Maiers and Amy Sandvold show you how to spark and sustain your students’ energy, excitement, and love of learning.

    This book presents ideas for planning and implementing a Clubhouse Classroom, where passion meets practice every day. In the Clubhouse Classroom, students learn new skills and explore their talents with the help of educators who are invigorated by the subjects they teach.

    Contents include:

    * Achievement Gap or Passion Gap?
    * A Passion-Driven Classroom: The Essentials
    * Organizing the Clubhouse Classroom
    * Managing the Clubhouse Classroom

    Learn how to move away from prescription-driven learning toward passion-driven learning, and begin to make a real difference in the lives of your students. These strategies will help teachers in Grades K-12 put the “heart” back into teaching and learning – and make a lasting impact as educators!

    "This book describes innovative ways to run a classroom where students are engaged in learning. It features many resources including websites and tips for participating in online education-communities." --Cindi Rigsbee, 2009 National Teacher of the Year Finalist, Gravelly Hill Middle School, Elfland, NC
