“Invite! Excite! Ignite! is a true celebration of teaching and learning. It will be a valued supplement to any introduction to teaching course, as well as an appreciated gift from coach or mentor to a new or developing teacher.” —from the Foreword by Charlotte Danielson, Danielson Group
“Fogarty’s modern view of learning demands a ‘mind-shift.’ It is about the human drive to learn, to understand, to confront and resolve problems, and to make meaning. This book helps teachers gain knowledge about and become protectors of this human yearning. Filled with practical strategies and resources, this book can lead the way.” —Arthur L. Costa, professor emeritus, California State University, Sacramento
“Robin Fogarty gets it right from the very beginning: a teacher’s role is not to serve up information but to facilitate learning. Invite! Excite! Ignite! is a deeply informed exploration of what that can look like at its best.” —David Perkins, Harvard Graduate School of Education
