From the Inside Flap

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR FUTURE WISE

“Rarely does a book come along that can change the way we view the world. This is a must-read book, not just for educators, but for anyone who cares about education or, indeed, lifelong learning. David Perkins does not tell the reader what should be learned in schools – he takes the reader on a journey to clarify his or her own goals and priorities for ‘lifeworthy learning,’ a truly enlightening journey.”
―Charles M. Reigeluth, professor emeritus, School of Education, Indiana University

“We are working so hard in this country on the details of school improvement that we don’t always stop to consider the big picture – if we are actually working on the right things. David Perkins has long helped us address the essential question of how do we know what students understand. In this important book he gives us a fresh vision of curriculum: how do we know what is worth teaching and learning?”
―Ron Berger, chief academic officer, Expeditionary Learning

“In Future Wise, David Perkins, the author of Smart Schools and Outsmarting IQ, continues his tradition of insightful, visionary and original analyses of the present and the future for education. Educators, policymakers, researchers―you cannot afford to miss this book.”
―Gavriel Salomon, professor emeritus, University of Haifa, Israel

“I have worked with David Perkins for close to half a century and whenever I am in his company, I still learn from him. In this seminal book, David powerfully and gracefully shares with the world of educators his incomparably deep thinking about teaching and learning.”
―Howard Gardner, Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education

“David Perkins, preeminent authority on learning and teaching, offers profound insights into the purpose and content of twenty-first century schooling. For educators in the Information Age, this is an essential, enthralling read; a book for global excogitation.”
―Rod Rock, superintendent, Clarkston Community Schools, Michigan
