In 1968, along with Jearnine Wagner, Susan Marcus co-founded what later became known as Learning about Learning. Wagner, Marcus, and the other founders created and sustained an innovative educational movement that changed the lives of children, teachers, and parents. Marcus collaborated on a number of Learning about Learning initiatives, including the “Imagination Works” program, the creation of activity kits, professional development for teachers, and books about education. After Learning about Learning shut down in 1986, Marcus and the other co-founders continued to build upon the legacy of the program. Marcus went on to work as a museum education consultant, a children’s program designer, founder of a non-profit organization, and a co-author of multiple education books. It is evident that the core beliefs and ideas live on in Marcus’s later work, which underscores the lasting importance and contributions of Wagner and Learning about Learning.
