Publisher's Summary

This book begins with a bold idea. Learning should be epic. Definition of epic:
1. A story or narrative centered around a hero
2. Spectacular; impressive; memorable
If learning is not memorable, should it even be considered learning? For too long, traditional education has used outdated practices to deliver complex and well-intended content to students with very little hope of that subject matter being retained. It often looks like this:

Lectures are given
Students write the information down
Students take a test on that information
Information is discarded from the brain

It doesn't have to be this way anymore. In The Epic Classroom, Trevor Muir uses the power of storytelling and brain science to give educators practical and proven practices to achieve real student engagement, and in return, learning that is permanent and memorable. Any teacher, in any subject area, and in any grade level can use the story-centered framework of The Epic Classroom to transform their classrooms into settings where students are engaged, challenged, and transformed. Students can be heroes of their own learning; dynamic, capable, and daring characters working their way through a plot to solve real conflicts that can change their world. And classrooms are a setting for this adventure to take place; teachers being the guides to lead their students through this journey. In this book you will discover

How to increase student engagement
How to plan and execute an effective approach to project-based learning
Specific strategies for leading engaged students
Outlines and tools to plan and manage projects
Methods to increase academic performance in students

Interesting ideas! Well worth it.

I heard Trevor Muir speak at at a conference I attended, and I love the ideas he presents and lays out in this book. We'll worth the read.
