Murrow, Kathryn; Leis, Betsy – Learning Professional, 2022
Although instructional coaches are deeply committed to continuous improvement, they rarely have access to professional learning themselves.

Dodman, Stephanie L.; Holincheck, Nancy; Fox, Rebecca K. – Learning Professional, 2022
Viewing classrooms as apolitical, race-neutral environments is not working -- and never has. In promoting color blindness, educators have denied student racial identities.

When a new community forms, whether it is an elementary school class or a teacher inquiry group, co-constructing norms or community expectations is often one of the members' first tasks.
