Breaking the Mold of Education: Innovative and Successful Practices for Student Engagement, Empowerment, and Motivation
The contributing authors represent diverse backgrounds, cultures, and experiences, yet their chapters recognize similarities among students so that the innovations can be transferred to other contexts. Each chapter represents practical, research-based success stories as well as authentic accomplishments which motivate and engage all students. The 20 chapters in this volume are organized into four sections:
(a) making personal connections and engaging students in reflection;
(b) engagement with literacy and language;
(c) music, movement, arts, drama and other creative engagements; and (d) school culture, community, and student success.
