Meet Suzanne – 2020/21 School Tour Coordinator

Suzanne joined the Brifield School Tour family last fall to help with the coordination for Mr. Stewart to accomplish The National Spring 2020 Britfield School Book Tour, that encompassed 9,000 miles, hit 18 states, and inspired over 25,000 students in 150 schools. Each event positively changed lives.

This year, Suzanne is back to help you navigate this new virtual school tour. Though the face-to-face will be a bit different, we are confident the high-impact presence of C.R. Steward is not diminished by this consideration of social distance. Students will continue to be inspired, educated and entertained during this valuable time with the author.

Suzanne is available to answer questions about scheduling your school event. Send her an e-mail: authorvisit@britfield.com.

Kids’ BookBuzz Review

"Tom just barely escapes the evil orphanage with his friend Sarah to follow the clues of his long-lost parents who may still be alive! Could he really be the heir of the British throne? Britfield and the lost Crown was such a thrilling book filled with so much awesome history about England,  crazy mysteries, and truly amazing characters. It had me hooked every second of reading it!! I can't wait for the sequel." — Hannah, Age 13, Kids' BookBuzz

Creativity Expert Challenges…

Creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson challenges the way we're educating our children. He champions a radical rethink of our school systems, to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence.

Why you should listenWhy don't we get the best out of people? Sir Ken Robinson argues that it's because we've been educated to become good workers, rather than creative thinkers. Students with restless minds and bodies -- far from being cultivated for their energy and curiosity -- are ignored or even stigmatized, with terrible consequences. "We are educating people out of their creativity," Robinson says. It's a message with deep resonance. Robinson's TED Talk has been distributed widely around the Web since its release in June 2006. The most popular words framing blog posts on his talk? "Everyone should watch this."

A visionary cultural leader, Sir Ken led the British government's 1998 advisory committee on creative and cultural education, a massive inquiry into the significance of creativity in the educational system and the economy, and was knighted in 2003 for his achievements. His 2009 book, The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything, is a New York Times bestseller and has been translated into 21 languages. A 10th-anniversary edition of his classic work on creativity and innovation, Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative, was published in 2011. His 2013 book, Finding Your Element: How to Discover Your Talents and Passions and Transform Your Life, is a practical guide that answers questions about finding your personal Element. And in Creative Schools: The Grassroots Revolution That’s Transforming Education, he argues for an end to our outmoded industrial educational system and proposes a highly personalized, organic approach that draws on today’s unprecedented technological and professional resources to engage all students.
