Full description for Learning outside the Lines
Learning with "YOUR" purpose in mind -- not your parents', not your teacher's, not your school's Every day, your school, your teachers, and even your peers draw lines to measure and standardize intelligence. They decide what criteria make one person smart and another person stupid. They decide who will succeed and who will just get by. Perhaps you find yourself outside the norm, because you learn differently -- but, unlike your classmates, you have no system in place that consistently supports your ability and desire to learn. Simply put, you are considered lazy and stupid. You are expected to fail. "Learning Outside the Lines" is written by two such "academic failures" -- that is, two academic failures who graduated from Brown University at the top of their class. Jonathan Mooney and David Cole teach you how to take control of your education and find true success -- and they offer all the reasons "why" you should persevere. Witty, bold, and disarmingly honest, "Learning Outside the Lines" takes you on a journey toward personal empowerment and profound educational change, proving once again that rules sometimes need to be broken.
