Give your students a leg up and improve learning outcomes with this revolutionary, hands-on approach to teaching

In Cultivating Curiosity: Teaching and Learning Reimagined, distinguished educator and author Doreen Gehry Nelson inspires anyone yearning to break away from formulaic teaching. Told from dozens of powerful and personal perspectives, the effectiveness and versatility of the Doreen Nelson Method of Design-Based Learning described in the book is backed by years of quantitative and qualitative data.

You'll learn how applying this cross-curricular methodology can transform your K-12 teaching practice, regardless of changes in content standards. The book includes:
* Discussions about how to launch creative and critical thinking in your students
* Explanations of the methodology's 6 ½ Steps of Backward Thinking(TM) that invigorate the teaching experience and dramatically improve learning
* The inception of the methodology and the experiences of K-12 teachers who practice it in their classrooms.

Perfect for K-12 educators seeking a methodology that consistently engages students in applying what they learn, Cultivating Curiosity is also an ideal resource for teachers-in-training, administrators, and post-secondary educators.
