In this book, teacher and popular blogger Joli Barker shows you how to make K-8 students fearless in the classroom so they can engage in deeper learning. You'll discover how to abandon the notion of the teacher as the primary source of information, and instead create a classroom environment in which students can explore problems, test theories, and play games through curiosity, imagination, adaptability, and a passion for learning.

Find out how to...

Create fearless learning environments;

Engage in fearless planning and lesson design;

Use fearless grading and assessments;

Teach fearless gamification;

Develop fearless parent relations; and

Get students to ask fearless questions.

"In The Fearless Classroom Joli Barker shares her method and fiery passion for student engagement by inspiring them to be fearless learners. Her method is accessible to teachers of all levels: 'Make mistakes alongside your students,' 'Let students explore and wonder about a topic before teaching it,' and 'Have students set personal goals for the week.' Through this lens into her classroom, she challenges educators to join in the fearless revolution. An inspiring read for teachers of every vintage!"

--Mark Moran, Founder and CEO, Dulcinea Media and Co-founder, Choose2Matter

"Every classroom should be modeled around The Fearless Classroom. Joli Barker creates an environment where all students are risk takers, critical thinkers, and deep problem solvers. Barker shows you how to develop student-driven learning environments and how to 'get out of the way' of their learning! Imagine a world where students think for themselves, are creative, are accepting of other students' ideas, and are collaborative: this is the Fearless Classroom."

--Jamie Ewing, Teacher at Mount View Elementary and NAASE Innovative Teacher of the Year, Facilitator for the Technology Access Foundation's STEM Institute, and Facilitator for Innovation Jump Start
