Psst! Can you keep a secret?

Just got off the phone with the publisher. We are right on schedule for a May release!!

EDrenaline Rush Cover

After sitting on this fantastic artwork for the past several weeks while all the behind the scenes details were finalized, I am all kinds of excited to go public with this information and share a sneak peek at the final cover image for the book! Things are moving right on schedule with the good people at Dave Burgess Consulting, the editing and layout team, and the final stages of the revision process, and EDrenaline Rush is looking all set for release DURING THE LAST WEEK OF MAY, 2019.

For a book that draws inspiration from theme parks, mud runs, and escape rooms, this is really the perfect read for teachers looking to kick their classroom pedagogy into high gear with all the fun and excitement of summer. The timing really could not be better!

Say tuned to the blog for more information as it becomes available. And in the meantime, here’s a little teaser from the publishing folks to help set the stage:

What if going to school could capture the thrills and excitement of a visit to an amusement park?

Could classroom activities elicit the same sense of exhilaration you feel when charging the hill in a mud run?

And how much more engaged would our students be if a curriculum was filled with the same mystery and mastery you’d expect from a twisting escape room of puzzles and surprises?

Packed with lesson planning tips, instructional design ideas, and plug-and-play teaching resources, EDrenaline Rush challenges teachers to think differently and push their pedagogy to incredible limits, creating classrooms where students willingly step outside of their comfort zones and boldly dare to attempt the impossible.

Get pumped, y’all. Just one month left until we unleash the #EDrenaline Rush and change the game on education!
