"In Teaching Students to Dig Deeper, Ben Johnson emphasizes the notion that all students today need to be Analytical Thinkers, Creative Thinkers, and Problem Solvers. He not only makes a case for each of these but goes on to outline strategies, methods, and ways that educators can go about teaching students to do this in their classes and work. The strategies he integrates in to the book and questions he poses will be quite helpful to readers and educators in a variety of educational positions." - Gregory Bartlett, Consultant, Brunswick School Department, ME
"I believe this book will be an excellent resource for school leaders trying to lead their staff in understanding the qualities necessary to prepare students to be College and Career Ready and then how to integrate the practice of these qualities into their classroom instruction." - Susan Gorman, Director of Student Improvement, Osawatomie School District #367, KS
