Starr Prepares for Second Book Club
The superintendent has chosen Drive, by Daniel Pink.
The discussion starts at 7 p.m. at the Carver Educational Services Center, and it will be broadcast on MCPS TV.
During the event, Starr will answer questions from members of the audience and from viewers at home using e-mail and Twitter, where he tweets under @mcpssuper.
In the book, Pink argues that the key to motivating people is not simply rewarding success but instead engendering a sense of autonomy and purpose.
This is the second of three book club events planned for the school year, and Starr has said that the discussions give him a chance to reach out to the schools' community, students and staff.
"The book clubs will provide a less formal way for us to have a conversation about education and will provide an opportunity for me to share some of my educational philosophy," Starr said in a statement. "I’m looking forward to a great conversation."
