    Teachers Need This Book

    As a career middle school teacher, I know how challenging it can be to manage a classroom full of diverse learners. It is easy to focus on 'fixing' what is wrong with kids. What Fox does in this book is offer a practical program to build on students' strengths. She shows us how to discover them with great activities and exercises and also makes a strong case that building on student strengths lays the groundwork for students to improve their performance overall. In this age of standardization, this book provides a refreshing reminder to teachers and parents that kids are not problems to be solved but mysteries to be discovered. I, for one, am looking forward to sharing this book with the parents of kids I teach and using the exercises and ideas in it to partner with them to see our students in a new light. Great book, groundbreaking.

    My friend is a book distributor who received an advanced copy of this book. Knowing I am a fan of Discovering Strengths, she gave me this book to read. I feel so lucky to have been one of the first to read and review it! This book is profoundly positive and for the first time, I feel like I know what will really help our schools. The stories in this book are funny, moving and concise. The suggestions are creative, innovative and pretty easy. This book provides one of the clearest, most compelling cases for the strengths approach. I found myself reading it for my children, but soon realized I was learning about myself. There is a great workbook with some clever ideas. I think this book signals the beginning of a whole new way to approach education. I believe this work will be the catalyst for significant conversations about a new direction for education, and Jenifer Fox's voice is sure to be a major one in that conversation. She is clearly articulate, passionate and focused on having a hand changing the system.
