* How can educators and parents of diverse backgrounds come together to find ways to invite soul into schools?
* How do educators address "soul" in education without violating the separation of church and state or the deeply held beliefs of families and students?
In this book, Rachael Kessler shows how. Based on the deeply moving stories and profound questions of students themselves, each chapter responds to the yearnings young people express: Deep Connection, Meaning and Purpose, Silence, Joy, Creativity, Transcendence, and Initiation--each evokes a gateway to inviting soul into the classroom.
Without healthy forums led by responsible adults, young people seek these gateways on their own, sometimes in destructive ways like drugs, sex, suicide, hazing, and even murder. Helping students find constructive ways to express their longings increases their motivation to learn; stay in school; strengthen ties to family and friends; and approach adult life with vitality, character, and vision.
This practical and inspirational sourcebook will support school communities that are committed to preventing violence and alienation and producing responsible, caring citizens.
According to educator and creativity expert Ronald A. Beghetto, the best way to unleash students''problem solving and creativity—and thus prepare them to face real-world problems—is to incorporate complex challenges that teach students to respond productively to uncertainty.

* The process of lesson unplanning, a way of transforming existing lessons, activities, and assignments into more complex classroom challenges.
* Four basic action principles that teachers and students can use to design and solve complex challenges both inside and outside the classroom.
* The steps for creating legacy challenges, which require students to identify a problem, develop a solution, and ensure that their work makes a lasting contribution.
With planning forms and detailed sample activities, this practical guide will enable teachers at every grade level to design a full range of challenges in any subject area. Invite uncertainty into your classroom—and discover what your students are capable of.
