Awaken the Learner:
Finding the Source of Effective Education
is a collaboration between Darrell Scott (founder of
Rachel’s Challenge) and Robert J. Marzano (founder of Marzano Research
Laboratory). In part I, Darrell Scott describes the terrible day in 1999 when
his daughter Rachel was shot and killed at Columbine High School. Rachel’s
death led him to create Rachel’s Challenge, which brought him into contact with
millions of students and thousands of educators and gave him unique insights
about education in the United States. In part II, Robert J. Marzano explains a
model of cognition, motivation and engagement that empowers students to
understand and control their emotions and decisions. He gives teachers, schools
and districts concrete guidance about how to create a curriculum that both
instructs and awakens students. Together the authors outline an approach that
combines instruction and inspiration to create a coherent, compassionate
direction for education.
