  • Be the Solution: How Entrepreneurs and Conscious Capitalists Can Solve All the World's Problems

    • Wiley & Sons
    • April 2009
    Authors: Michael Strong, John Mackey, Mohammad Yunus, Hernando de Soto, Don Beck, and more

    What if the distinction between business and doing good vanished? What if all those who engaged in business were committed to a deeper purpose, and all those committed to doing good were entrepreneurial and enterprising? What would it take for a world of seven billion such people to solve all the world's problems?

    If you are one of these people, wondering where to go from here, how to "be the solution" in the twenty-first century, Be the Solution provides an original perspective on how to create a better world.

  • The Habit of Thought: From Socratic Seminars to Socratic Practice

    • New View Publications
    • 1996
    Authors: Michael Strong

    Teach students to think for themselves. The Habit of Thought describes the theory, practice, and vision of Socratic practice, a novel and increasingly widespread approach to classroom instruction. In this series of thought-provoking essays, Strong argues that Socratic practice fosters a culture of learning in the classroom and ultimately helps young people become mature, independent thinkers. Issues discussed range from the philosophical (intellectual dialogue and integrity) to the practical (classroom models and evaluation rubrics).
    I imagine how we can transform a school; and I believe it is through just such work as you describe. - Deborah Meier, former principal of Central Park East in Harlem, and author of The Power of Their Ideas
    Michael Strong's ideas made me the teacher that I am today. Socratic Practice gives meaning and relevance not only to our curricular studies within the school, but also to our out-of-school lives. - Elaine Griffin, 1995 National Teacher of the Year
