Title information

As teachers and adults, very few of us enjoy being given a goal without our input, no matter how kindly it may be offered. Students are no different. This 8-page durable guide outlines four key elements and strategies that will help you motivate learners to be curious about their learning, connect their learning to a purpose and a big picture, and propel them to mastery. McREL's Curiosity Works™ resources are based in part on a successful system-wide effort in Melbourne, Australia, that improved student achievement by helping teachers and school leaders develop precision without prescription, unleashing student curiosity. 

Combining these insights with McREL's analysis of best education practices from around the world, our Curiosity Works resources support a better way of transforming schools—not through top-down pressure, but by helping teachers and school leaders work together to develop shared professional expertise and leverage the power of motivation and curiosity.
