Welcome to the OSBA Book Club!
We are reading our Fall 2018 Book Club selection, "What School Could Be: Insights and Inspiration from Teachers Across America," by Ted Dintersmith, one of the nation's leading voices on innovation and education. His four-decade career spans technology, business, public policy and education philanthropy. He was the executive producer of the acclaimed documentary "Most Likely to Succeed," as well as the author of the book "Most Likely to Succeed: Preparing our Kids for the Innovation Era".
The author took a trip across America visiting all 50 states in a single school year. All across the country, he met teachers in ordinary settings doing extraordinary things, creating innovative classrooms where children learn deeply and joyously as they gain purpose, agency, essential skillsets and mindsets, and real knowledge.
It's free to join the OSBA Book Club but you must be registered as a Book Club member to receive communications or other opportunities associated with club membership. Upon registration, you will be redirected to purchase your own copy of the book.
The OSBA Book Club is a cost-free program allowing member districts (board members, administrators and district staff and community members) to read and learn together. OSBA's Cheryl W. Ryan explains why you should join the Book Club in the video under "Resources."
The OSBA Book Club began in the winter of 2014 with "How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character", by Paul Tough. We've read many great selections since then. Please join us for our current book or spice up your knowledge with one of our previous reads.
