I recently read the book Teach: Creating Independently Responsible Learners from Dennis DeNoia. I don’t read a lot of books (how do all you moms of lots of kids find the time?) but I was surprised to find myself adopting a new type of homeschool and teaching culture in my family after reading this.
Have you known all along that you’ve wanted to prepare your kids for life beyond graduation, but struggled to keep that focus in the day to day routine? If so, you should read this book to understand how to build towards that goal by focusing on raising independent, self-directed learners.
With over 30 years in the education industry, Dennis DeNoia has a wealth of information and experience that has given him a unique insight into how kids learn. As a public school math teacher he discovered techniques that unlocked even the most resistant student’s ability – and desire – to learn. After taking his years of expertise into the homeschool community, Dennis DeNoia has wrapped up a collection of those insights in his new book TEACH.
