Book Overview

How can we create a just, healthy, and humane world? What is the path to developing sustainable energy, food, transportation, production, construction, and other systems? What's the best strategy to end poverty and ensure that everyone has equal rights? How can we slow the rate of extinction and restore ecosystems? How can we learn to resolve conflicts without violence and treat other people and nonhuman animals with respect and compassion?

The answer to all these questions lies with one underlying system--schooling. To create a more sustainable, equitable, and peaceful world, we must reimagine education and prepare a generation to be solutionaries--young people with the knowledge, tools, and motivation to create a better future. This book describes how we can (and must) transform education and teaching; create such a generation; and build such a future.

If you're concerned about this book politically picking sides, don 't be. The author is very critical on big thinking. Questioning everything : and making it comfortable for inclusive views of diverse viewpoints. Succinct's book is from someone who walks the talk.

   Inspirational
I came across Zoe Weil's The World Becomes What We Teach '' by accident, but I am happy for the encounter. The words of Weil are inspiring for educators at all levels. I teach college, but I still find immense value in the book, rather than teaching content and skills. We need to focus on mapping these areas to problems and then asking students to find solutions. On the one hand, this seems obvious, but is not common in most school curricula, where disciplines are often taught in separate silos. I especially like how Weil seems concerned about the future for our children - it is in their hands. Weil touches sensitively on issues of climate change, animal ethics, racial inequality and other issues as well. Do we want to educate children to take their careers just to make money, or do we want them to be moral individuals?

   Important Read
This book is so important for educators to read it. It asks us to rethink or old goal of producing graduates who can compete in a global economy... What we need are people who can solve the world's problems and solve them with solutions.

   Stellar book
Zoe Weil exemplifies compassion and kindness and this book is no exception. I loved every page and even though I have read her other work and am someone who tries to lead a MOGO lifestyle, I found myself nodding along and learning new ways we can make a difference each. For all those in the educational system, mandatory reading should be mandatory.

   Don't judge this book by its cover. No. Really.
The book arrived quickly and in very good condition. And, this must be said, the book looks good as heck, but is actually really cheesy. It was a textbook for my class and I was very suspicious, but I enjoyed reading it so far and I highly recommend it.
