The North Star Resource Guide

We hope to supply schools with The North Star Resource Guide in an effort to support teachers searching for ways to inspire their students on a life-long learning voyage. The North Star Classroom Resource Guide was written by Milken Award-winning elementary educator Sue Pandiani and FableVision's award-winning author/illustrator/educational consultant Peter H. Reynolds. Based on the themes of Peter's book, The North Star, and the magical Internet mentoring with Sue's third grade classroom, this guide bottles up the secret formula that propelled Ms. Pandiani’s classroom to national and international recognition.Teachers searching for ways to inspire their students on a life-long learning voyage will see how easily they can integrate the approach and activities in this guide into their daily classroom practices. This program supports and facilitates a true learner-centered environment, providing students with rich opportunities to follow their North Star.

It is often said that life is a journey, and it’s true. But sometimes it’s hard to know which path to follow when signs point in so many directions. In this beautifully illustrated book, Peter H. Reynolds once again encourages readers to observe, to wonder, and to consider diverging from the well-worn path — to pursue their dreams. Originally published more than ten years ago, The North Star has had a profound effect on its many readers. This edition, featuring all new art, celebrates the book’s own voyage connecting people around the world. It has inspired classroom activities, a musical, and countless thoughtful journeys.
