Summary "Inspirational stories of engaging, real-life educational experiences Everyone has a personal learning story, a time when they became actively engaged in their own education. Maybe it was an especially challenging teacher, or a uniquely supportive environment, or a collaborative classroom. In Faces of Learning, both well-known public figures, such as Arne Duncan and Al Franken, and ordinary Americans recall the moments when they truly learned something. Includes stories from people of all different backgrounds and from all over the country ; The stories are grouped into categories by theme like "relevant" and "experiential" to help reveal the common characteristics of what works in education ; Each chapter ends with five things you can do to improve your own learning, that of your students, and of all Americans Readers can visit the companion website " to share their own stories of educational success and find out what else they can do"--
