Corwin Press
Organized to make learning contagious throughout the school, this user-friendly guide helps create a culture of learning that promotes the simultaneous development of students, teachers, and parents--addressing specific ways to maximize study groups, student data, classroom walk-throughs, and more. The interactive self-assessment protocols focus on: (1) Achieving a sense of purpose; (2) Facilitating program coherence; (3) Invigorating classroom teaching; (4) Supporting the professional development of teachers; and (5) Developing wider circles of leadership. Issuing a call to action for all educational communities, this manual offers a visionary yet grounded approach to revitalize educators and reenergize their efforts for meaningful, lasting reform. Following the Author to Reader, Preface, Acknowledgements and About the Authors, this book contains three sections: (1) Shaping Schoolwide Contexts; (2) Improving Classroom Teaching; and (3) Sustaining Passion and Commitment. This book concludes with a Index.
