    Reach for Greatness urges educators to look beyond what has been done in the past and strive to guide students in being directors and active members in their own educational futures. The various examples of greatness achieved by specific schools and teachers was enlightening and interesting. However, ways in which to implement these types of programs was lacking. Other books are mentioned in the text and the 7 pages of references.

The various examples of greatness achieved by specific schools and teachers was enlightening and interesting. However, ways in which to implement these types of programs was lacking. Other books are mentioned in the text and the 7 pages of references. As an educator interested in providing students with effective and positive change, I was hoping to learn specific ways in which to make this happen. There are lists of qualities that teachers should have in order to make these positive changes, “teachers should have an extensive set of management and leadership skills that includes planning, communication, delegation, evaluation, and motivation.” (Of 79) Most of the teachers I know have these qualities and yet how do we guide students to reach for greatness? I finished this book still having the same questions with which I started it, albeit with some new schools and teachers to research.

    Humans are unique, creative, and individually unique in how their talents and interests interact with genetic abilities, society, nature, and life. Zhao nails it in the head as he highlights this and our need to tap into and allow this untold wealth to grow and expand to meet the needs of the individual and society.

    This research will add to our quest for developing a school environment that is engaging, interesting, challenging and innovative. We need to move away from our current path that settles for mediocrity. Good and current research to share.

    This theoretical- and research-based book argues convincingly for personalizable (not personalized) learning wherein students largely determine their studies. It argues against the choke hold of traditional educational practices that exterminate the fire in so many curious kids.

    A succinct overview of how schools need to change for all students. Zhao explores how we should be teaching to strengths to reach greatness instead of focussing on the deficits. Many good ideas here.
