Author Susie Morice takes readers inside two amazing schools where leadership and learning stand outside the norm. Morice uses ethnographic processes to paint rich pictures of teaching, learning and leading in Opal School in Portland, Oregon and City Garden Montessori in St Louis, Missouri. These school descriptions guide readers to a clear understanding of what it means to be immersed in transformative processes. The monograph explores the schools’ shared beliefs that support a culture of deeper learning; the look, the feel, and sound of the schools; structures that support deeper learning; and the scholarship and academics that reflect a culture of deeper learning.
