Teaching a Future President: Empowering Students to Take On Almost Impossible Problems 

Join us to hear Dr. Zachary Herrmann (EdLD ‘17), Executive Director of the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education Center for Professional Learning, discuss his new book, Teaching a Future President: Empowering Students to Take On Almost Impossible Problems. 


Dr. Herrmann, a life-time educator, articulates an aspirational vision for education, one that deeply engages students in complex and meaningful work and prepares students for the personal, social, and societal problems and opportunities facing them and our society. However, simply adopting an aspirational vision for a high-quality learning environment isn’t the real challenge. Most educators, students, and families don’t need a lot of convincing that schools can and should do more. Accordingly, this book does not stop at simply articulating a vision of the possible; the book also helps individuals visualize what it can look like, and supports teachers, families, and other engaged community members as they work toward closing the gap between what is possible and what is currently realized.
