Learnership: Invest in Teachers, Focus on Learning, and Put Test Scores in Perspective
Toll, Cathy A.
Do you feel bogged down by endless administrative tasks? Do you wish you could focus more on what truly matters--learning? "Learnership" provides both insight and solutions for moving past the distractions and becoming a learning leader. Cathy Toll illustrates this transformational process through activities and focused "learning conversations." Toll uses supported actions, theory and research, real-life stories, and narrative bibliography to explain how the practice of learnership can be implemented on a daily basis. This book offers: (1) Practices to help teachers improve their effectiveness using problem-solving techniques; (2) More effective ways to approach data, testing, and accountability; and (3) Strategies for supporting Professional Learning Teams (PLT) and educational coaches. "Learnership" is an invaluable resource for principals and teachers in school-based leadership roles, or anyone who wishes to focus on school improvement and their own personal growth as a leader in education.
