Filled with stories and specific ideas, The Passionate Learner is a handbook for cultivating kids passionate engagement with learning at all ages. "A wise, realistic treatise on the prospects of reclaiming childrens engagement with learning. . . . Fried is inspirational and practical." -Publishers Weekly "[A] fascinating look at the way children lose their natural ability to learn as they enter and progress through school. . . . [Fried] outlines strategies for parents, teachers, and school systems to enliven the teaching process and recapture childrens natural passion for learning. An inspiring resource for parents and teachers." -Booklist "Should be required reading for all educators committed to reforming classrooms and reviving the spirit of learning." -Jacqueline Jordan Irvine, Emory University "Fried accomplishes here what so few education writers have even attempted-he speaks to parents in the same clear, nonjargon prose he offers to teachers." -Seymour Sarason, author of Teaching as a Performing Art "Frieds reflections are dead-on." -Teacher Magazine "Accurate and thought-provoking analyses of what we believe and what schooling actually promotes." -Principal Magazine Robert L.
