Readers are Saying

Kath Murdoch, Educational Consultant

“This is such a beautiful book. What I love about it is the creativity of Misty’s approach—it’s catchy and compelling and really works to make the complex dance of inquiring with learners elegantly simple.”

Jocelyn Singh, Teacher

“Pop-up Studio is filled with gorgeous pictures, inspiring quotes, and practical strategies that will empower you to take your teaching to another level. If you want to learn how to make inquiry-based teaching a reality, then this is the book for you.”

Workshop Participant, Blind Feedback Survey

“I already planned a lesson that I taught today using the methods from the book, and it was awesome! I am already a more confident, engaging teacher.”

David Barnum, Faculty Advisor

“How can educators incorporate inquiry into their practice? Misty provides lived experiences as concrete examples, along with the pedagogical foundation that affirms this shift. This will become part of my professional library!”

Colleen Beggs, Teacher

“This book is a straightforward tool as we transform our schools into places where engagement, focus, purpose, collaboration, competence, and pride are visible throughout the process of inquiry.”

Mary-Lynn Heron, Principal

“Pop-Up Studio resonates so deeply for me. Your work is so key in a society where there is such a mindset of scarcity, especially when we speak of creativity and how to manifest more of it!”

Dr. H. Lynn Erickson

“Pop-Up Studio reminds us how important it is to focus on the student as a learner, and to draw out creativity as well as the intellect in both the student and the teacher. I love this book!”

Want to experience Pop-Up Studio in real life? You’re in good company. Join the hundreds of teachers, administrators, and parents who have integrated Pop-Up Studio into their practice after an enlivened day of hands-on learning.
