About the Book
Teaching That Changes Lives is a transformational and practical guide that will enable teachers to make an authentic difference with their students and avoid succumbing to the myriad pressures and challenges of their jobs. In answer to the requests of educators who have flocked to her workshops based on her bestseller Change Your Questions, Change Your Life, Marilee Adams shows how, by adopting a new mindset, teachers can rekindle their love of teaching and ignite their students with a love of learning.
Using the storytelling format that proved so successful in her previous book, Adams tells how Emma, a sixth-grade teacher on the verge of quitting her job, learns to cultivate what Adams calls the “Learner Mindset”— having the discipline, curiosity, and courage to consistently ask growth-oriented, open-minded questions of oneself and others—and to avoid the close-minded and critical “Judger Mindset.” Emma transforms her classroom, her relationships with her colleagues, and, most importantly, her students’ eagerness for learning and achievement.
Teaching is more than imparting facts and skills—it’s preparing students for the test of life. Featuring an innovative, easy-to-follow workbook and access to a Learner Mindset online mini-course , this inspiring book will ensure that teachers and students alike become creative, resilient problem solvers, bridge builders, and lifelong learners.
