Susan Engel offers a highly readable exploration of what curiosity is, how it can be measured, how it develops in childhood, and how... educators can put curiosity at the center of the classroom.

              In a book that recalls My So-Called Life and Diane Ravitch, A School of Our Own tells the remarkable story of the Independent Project, the first student-run high school in America. Founder Sam Levin, a high school junior who had already achieved international fame for creating Pr...oject Sprout the first farm-to-school lunch program in the United States was frustrated with his own education, and saw disaffection among his peers. In response, he lobbied for and then created a new school based on a few simple ideas about what kids need from their high school experience. He succeeded beyond anyone s wildest expectations and went on to be featured in Newsweek, NPR, the Washington Post, and other national media. Now in its seventh year, the Independent Project serves as national model for inspiring student engagement. In creating his school, Sam collaborated with Susan Engel, the noted developmental psychologist, educator, and author and Sam s mother. A School of Our Own is Sam and Susan s account of their life-changing year in education, a book that combines poignant stories, reflections on educational theory and practice, and practical, how-to advice for how to build new, more engaging educational environments for our children.

              Amid the hype of Race to the Top, online experiments such as Khan Academy, and bestselling books like The Sandbox Investment, we seem to have drawn a line that leads from nursery school along a purely economic route, with money as the final stop. But what price do we all pay for ...the singular focus on wage as the outcome of education? Susan Engel, a leading psychologist and educator, argues that this economic framework has had a profound impact not only on the way we think about education but also on what happens inside school buildings. An incisive prescription for America s sagging educational system ( Publishers Weekly ), The End of the Rainbow asks what would happen if we changed the implicit goal of education and imagines how different things would be if we made happiness, rather than money, the graduation prize. In this gem of a book (Deborah Meier), Engel offers a fascinating alternative view of what education might become: teaching children to read books for pleasure and self-expansion and encouraging collaboration. All of these new skills, she argues, would not only cultivate future success in the world of work but would also make society as a whole a happier place.
