On November 9, The Center for Universal Education at Brookings hosted an online event to discuss the release of the book Making Schools Work: Bringing the Science of Learning to Joyful Classroom Practice, which was written by teachers, school administrators, and scientists to create a model that will work in classroom. Grounded in insights on how human brains learn, the book examines how to co-construct and reimagine an optimal educational system for all children that is culturally responsive, inclusive, effective, and fun. A panel discussion including book co-author Kathy Hirsh-Pasek and leading colleagues will offer rich insights through a scientific lens about how to make schools work and cultivate joyful teaching and deeper student learning.
