Educating the Whole Child: The Real Story of Wholeness and Belonging

Stephanie Pace Marshall, Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

Abstract

In her 2008 keynote address to the Massachusetts ASCD, Dr. Stephanie Pace Marshall outlines why we--as leaders, storytellers and mapmakers--must ensure that the story, map, and landscape of schooling does not constrain our children’s potentials, silence their spirit, demean their passion, ridicule their dreams, or deny them access to wisely learn whatever it is that they want to know.
