    • Excellent work by Chris Lehmann and Zac Chase. Recommend to anyone who cares about children. While I may not agree with every point, Chris and Zac articulate their thoughts well, analyze successes at Science Leadership Academy and how those successes might translate elsewhere, and offer concrete action steps for folks in all different settings. The bite-sized nature of the 95 theses also makes this a great read for anyone looking to make change: start small, then take on another, then another. L [...]


    • It took me 3 months to read this book, but I write that more as information than confession. You can't really take it in all at once - at least I couldn't. I had to read it slowly and process each of the theses on their own. Zac and Chris do a beautiful job of pinpointing and clarifying the most important issues for what schools and classrooms should look like, how they should feel, and what they should hold dear. Even the chapter titles prompt reflection. It helped me review my position on what [...]


    • Building Schools 2.0 contains the authors' expert opinions on where education should be going, stated as 95 theses. They're pretty much guaranteed to either start conversations or, among the skeptical or calcified, elicit snorts.One of my favorite quotes -- "Beyond the old 3 Rs of reading, writing, and 'righmetic -- which, interestingly, are where Common Core has focused -- we have no idea of the specific content every kid really needs to know by the time she graduates from high school." (Thesis [...]


    • This is a good book with multiple essay-style chapters that bring to light some of the changes that need to happen in education. These essays do highlight the changes that need to happen to assure that we educate all children, and not just a few.This book really fired me up to share with others, I can see this being a great read as a faculty. I'll write more about that on my blog - but this is a great book to start discussions amongst educators.



    • This was our Superintendent's choice as a community read--an excellent one and experience all around. As a busy professional and mom, I appreciated the 3-4 page "theses" on pithy and relevant topics that, as Dr. Kelley said, definitely provoked some cognitive dissonance around ideas and assumptions I have as an educator and a community member committed to 3 very different schools. I read with sticky notes and found that many of the ideas I was struck by were in relation to my new role as a "10th [...]
