Creative Schools: Book Application

1 - 2 Credits
Instructor: Linda Jacobsen
$180 - $320
Creative Schools: Book Application is based on the book, Creative Schools: The Grassroots Revolution That's Transforming Education. This is an inspiring book on how to meet the challenges of transforming education in the 21st century. The author, Sir Ken Robinson, is one of the world's most influential voices in education. His engaging 2006 TED Talk, 'Do Schools Kill Creativity?' is the most viewed presentation in the organization's history. He and his co-author, Lou Aronica, make a powerful call to action to change how we view students and their needs to express individual creativity. Written with Robinson's trademark wit and engaging style, Creative Schools will challenge you to rethink the real nature and purpose of education. This course can be taken for either one or two units, and you can complete the course either with or without a class of students. This course supports state standards and is appropriate for grades K-14. Access to students is not required.

NOTE: Required book must be acquired separately.

I feel so blessed to have had a job that I totally loved to do each and every day. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching elementary aged students for the past 38 years. I liked not only working with the children, but their families as well. I have made many lifelong connections with many of them. As a teacher, it is such a rewarding feeling to see my students “light come on” and see them understand the objective of the lesson. I was also very fond of working with other teachers and administrators and helping them understand and learn about technology. I always liked integrating technology into my lessons and helping others do the same. This really makes lessons come to life. All my FPU courses are very helpful for teachers to learn how to integrate technology into their classroom lessons. Working with my FPU students is great because they really want to learn and use what they have learned to make their classroom lessons so much better and more meaningful for their students.
