Katie Donnelly: Taking Back the Classroom

Taking Back the Classroom

Katie Donnelly

Taking Back the Classroom is a how-to guide to taking control of your education. Too often, the movement to reform education leaves out the people who are most affected - students. Through a combination of research, statistics, and personal narrative, readers will learn about three issues affecting students today: classrooms that don't consider different learning styles and personalities, pressure to succeed and fear of failure that leads to massive stress and anxiety, and disengagement from a curriculum that focuses heavily on standardized testing. Providing action items that students can take for each of these three issues, this book aims to get students to the forefront of the movement for better education.
