"We would all trade a lot of knowledge for a little bit of wisdom." -Aaron Butler, Falconer Class of 1998
"School prepares us to be successful. We aspire to be happy." -Robert Landis, Falconer Class of 2001
We want our children and our co-workers to learn and exhibit qualities like invention, courage, and leadership more than we want them to regurgitate the capitals of South America or the sequence of presidents and kings. We value insight and design more than fractions, phyla, or physics. Creativity and vision are more critical to their success than how to run a cash register or throw a football
Geared toward the teacher and student in all of us, The Falconer provides a nine-step model for teaching us to be more creative, strategic, and inventive in our thinking and to make the leap from a passive learner of previous knowledge to an active creator of new ideas.
Based on a five-year classroom trial, The Falconer adapts a novel interpretation of the classic book of strategy, The Art of War, to a new goal of educational and personal fulfillment. It presents a model we, as teachers, parents, and employers, can apply to help produce tomorrow's heroes, but it will mean a fundamental shift in both our system of education and the management of our own lives.
