Wounded by School – Put joy back in learning. Kirsten Olson

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

Wounded by School: Recapturing the Joy in Learning and Standing Up to Old School Culture, is a must read for all educators. In this book, Kirsten Olson draws on her extensive research to help us understand the types of wounds suffered by students in school. The second part helps us understand how students can heal and how to avoid wounds altogether. If all teachers read and acted on this advice, schools would be better places overnight. Parents of wounded students and students themselves should also get this book.
