Understanding Quit Point is the key to unlocking the full potential of teaching and learning

We should be in the Golden Age of education. Teachers and leaders are more connected to training and education technology than ever before.

Still, educators are leaving the profession in record numbers. Students are falling through the cracks and many are giving up on learning. But what exactly is the problem? And more important, what should we do about it?

In Quit Point: Understanding Apathy, Engagement, and Motivation in the Classroom, authors Chamberlin and Matejic present a new way of approaching those issues. The Quit Point--their theory on how, why, and when people quit and how to stop quitting before it happens--will transform how teachers reach the potential of each and every student.

Quit Point reveals:

  • How to confront apathy and build student engagement
  • How to differentiate learning for all levels,
  • The best way to plan and assess learning to discourage quitting
  • Interventions to challenge students to keep going
  • How to experience a happier, more fulfilling, teaching experience
  • Applications and toolkits to help you address Quit Point, starting tomorrow

Read Quit Point today and stop quitting before it starts tomorrow.
