“Inventing School”- Book cover
The Village Green Virtual School broke the rules of how school was taught in the state of Rhode Island. This forward thinking charter school was built on the principles of learning at a pace that is appropriate for the student. Self guided lessons and workshop break out sessions dissected what the "norm" was for teaching and offered an refreshing solution to students craving an alternative educational solution.
This book reflects on the early struggles to adopt change and build from ground zero with no existing state run models to simulate. Inventing School is a candid and self-reflective work about what did and more importantly did not work up and through one graduating class.
