What Schools Don't Teach: 20 Ways to Help Students Excel in School and Life by Brad Johnson & Julie Sessions

Are we adequately preparing students for life beyond school doors? Schools teach students not to be competitive and never to fail. Yet in the real world, people compete for jobs, and they often fail many times before reaching success. In this thought-provoking book, authors Johnson and Sessions describe 20 skills that are overlooked in schools and in educational standards but that are crucial to real-world success. They describe how you can develop these skills in your students, no matter what subject area or grade level you teach.

You'll learn how to

  • promote leadership;
  • allow competition;
  • encourage meaningful engagement;
  • help students find their voice;
  • incorporate edutainment and pop culture;
  • motivate towards excellence
  • hold students accountable and responsible;
  • foster perseverance and the ability to learn from failure;
  • teach effective communication;
  • and much more!

Each chapter includes insightful research, thought-provoking stories, and practical strategies that you can take back to your own classroom.
