As I wrote about in last week’s column, this new book titled Timeless Learning by Ira Socol, Pam Moran, and Chad Ratliff may just be the best book I’ve read about how to change schools and bring all the things we know are important about progressive learning to traditional public and private schools.
In this interview, I get a chance to talk to Ira and Pam about a number of topics:
- Why this is the right time for progressive education to take root
- The challenges of moving centuries old practice in classrooms forward
- Some of the best ways to make change happen in schools
- And what skills, literacies and dispositions kids need to have to thrive in the modern world.
I know you’re going to enjoy the conversation.
