    Learning That Lasts is a practical guide to deeper instruction—a framework for challenging, engaging, and empowering students of all ages. It presents a new vision for classroom instruction that sharpens and deepens the quality of lessons in all subject areas. This vision of instruction is not theoretical. It has been created by and refined in some of the nation’s most successful public schools—schools that are beating the odds to create remarkable achievement—sited primarily in urban and rural low-income communities.

    Using case studies and examples of powerful learning at all grade levels and in all disciplines, Learning That Lasts is a guide to creating classrooms that promote deeper understanding, higher order thinking, and student independence. Through text and companion videos, readers will enter inspiring classrooms where students go beyond basics to become innovators, collaborators, and creators. Learning That Lasts is a guide for teachers who wish to make learning more meaningful, memorable, and connected to life, and inspire students to do more than they think possible.

    ​"Most contemporary writing about education either endorses or critiques a focus on basic skills, standardized tests, and job preparation. Learning That Lasts is a unique book; Experts from EL Education not only highlight engagement, deeper learning, artistry, and good character—they also demonstrate how to achieve an education that is worth celebrating." Howard Gardner Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education
