Your blueprint to entrepreneur-minded schooling

The Take-Action Guide to World Class Learners series provides the most complete information available on designing twenty-first century schools poised to leapfrog into the future! These practice-oriented books expand on Dr. Yong Zhao’s acclaimed World Class Learners, which presents a new framework for cultivating creative and entrepreneurial students. Now, with this first book in the follow-up three-volume set, Zhao digs much deeper, revealing how exactly to put that framework into effect.

This first book in the series provides specific strategies and practical advice on how to:

  • Incorporate student choice for flexible, student-focused curriculum
  • Motivate students to turn strengths into passions
  • Cultivate students’ technical, creative, decision making, and communication skills
