This extraordinary book shows teachers how to create and deliver curriculum that helps students become the motivated, successful natural learners they were born to be.
"This is an important and useful book—readable, practical, and inspiring advice for the practicing teacher. This is a great translation of theory into practice, and Rita's stories of her own work are especially compelling."
"I would certainly recommend that developmental educators read this book and implement its findings. This work is [also] going to be particularly helpful to high school teachers. It summarizes vast amounts of research and experience in clear and practical terms. It offers a whole new approach to teaching and learning that is well grounded in fact and science."
