In this powerful new book, James Rickabaugh, former
superintendent and current director of the Institute for Personalized Learning
(IPL), presents the ground-breaking results of the Institute’s half-decade of
research, development and practice: a simple but powerful model for
personalising students’ learning experiences by building their levels of
commitment, ownership and independence.

Tried and rigorously tested in urban, suburban and rural
districts – and in different academic and economic backgrounds – the IPL model
has been proven to enhance student engagement and achievement at all levels.
Rickabaugh provides principals and other top-level leaders step-by-step
guidance for implementing the model as well as

  • a detailed overview of the
    research and work behind the model’s development

  • a complete introduction to the
    heart of the model – a comprehensive, multi-layered framework centred on the
    three core components of learner profiles, customised learning paths and
    proficiency-based progress

  • tools and activities for
    assessing and adjusting the model to meet the specific needs of students and

  • strategies for increasing and
    reinforcing enthusiasm for the change process among everyone involved, from the
    classroom to the greater community

  • an abundance of real-life
    examples and reflections from students, teachers, principals and
    superintendents whose schools have flourished in record time and with minimal
    additional funding or resources.

Tapping the Power of
Personalized Learning
offers a blueprint that dramatically improves student outcomes
and prepares today’s learners to meet life’s challenges successfully in university
and beyond.
