Pathways to Personalization offers an innovative five-step framework to help school leaders and teacher teams design and implement blended and personalized learning initiatives based on local needs and interests. The book draws on principles of improvement science and change management, as well as work in nearly five hundred classrooms, to help educators define their own rationale for personalized learning; it guides them as they establish small pilot initiatives, determine criteria for success, evaluate their efforts, and create a path for replication and scale. Filled with activities and templates for organizing information and student feedback, the book also includes many examples of how district leaders, school principals, and teachers have successfully navigated the change process to create more student-centered classrooms. 

Praise

Pathways to Personalization offers a framework for thoughtful implementation of personalized learning. The volume helps educators to engage in deep examination of the purpose of the education system and empowers local change agents to ensure that all children build the knowledge, competence, and skills they need.
 
— Susan Patrick, president, iNACOL and cofounder, CompetencyWorks

A must-read for skeptics and champions of personalized learning alike. This book moves past mere rhetoric about personalization to explore real classrooms trying to reinvent themselves. Weaving together history, philosophy, personal experience, and stories about the hard work of educators on the frontlines, Rubin and Sanford offer a compelling framework for rethinking school as we know it. — Julia Freeland Fisher, director of education research, Clayton Christensen Institute
