Quantum Learning & Instructional Leadership in Practice
Le Tellier, John Parks
Corwin Press
Even the best principals and teachers need additional inspiration and energy to motivate students and even themselves. This handbook shows principals and teachers how to upgrade performance in the classroom and schoolwide. Using evidence-based strategies, John Le Tellier provides a catalog of practiced "moves" to help create an empowering classroom climate, reinforce content, and increase or sustain motivation. You will also explore four connections to becoming an impactful leader. The Context Connection creates the "moves" to establish empowering classroom context and the Cognitive Connection updates educators on the latest breakthroughs in neuroscience. The Character Connection establishes character education's importance to leadership practice, and the Classroom Connection develops strategies for accelerating learning, strengthening classroom management, and upgrading energy. Learn to: (1) Improve teaching effectiveness; (2) Improve student motivation; (3) Strengthen student character; (4) Implement and support leadership in the classroom; and (5) Renew teachers' energy and passion for their profession. Each chapter includes Leadership Notes that show you how specific moves can be used for leadership initiatives. Following About the Author, Preface and Acknowledgments, this book is divided into six sections: (1) Leadership and Motivation; (2) The Context Connection Part I; (3) The Cognitive Connection; (4) The Context Connection Part II; (5) The Character Connection; and (6) The Classroom Connection. This book also contains two Resources: (1) Useful Diagrams of the Brain; and (2) Teaching Resources for Chapter Six. Concluded are References and an Index.
