Teaching a Generation of Go-Givers

March 2, 2009

We recently learned that Don Gandy, a public high school principal in Valparaiso, Indiana, and his friend Randy Stelter, an athletic coach and English teacher, have decided to do a team-taught reading of The Go-Giver to their high school senior class and give out copies to every one of the school’s 145 seniors.

“We believe that this book will equip our seniors to deeply understand the principles of giving,” says Don, “and we want them to realize the importance of community. Every year the next senior class will read this book. It is our gift to them as they leave our school.”

Now that is the kind of feedback every author dreams about.

P.S. We’ve blogged about this in more detail here and here.
