How can educators transform old schools into remarkable learning environments? Packed with fresh ideas and action strategies for teachers, leaders, and policy makers, this courageous book offers a compelling vision from the research and hands-on work of two internationally recognized educators, authors, and thought leaders.
The authors propose a new approach to pedagogy as the basis for the bold moves that teachers and leaders need to make to engage all learners and prepare them for school and the world. They examine every aspect of K–12 education, including teacher roles, curriculum, instruction, and assessment, as well as the physical and virtual learning spaces that engage 21st century teachers and learners. With thought-provoking proposals and practical strategies for change, <i>Bold Moves for Schools<i> sets educators on the path of redefining and reenergizing their profession and creating exciting new learning environments that truly prepare students for today’s and tomorrow’s dynamic environments.

Boosting your students' literacy requires addressing all the interconnected elements of emotion, cognition, and higher-order thinking. You can meet that challenge with the advice from two ASCD best-selling authors Pérsida Himmele and William Himmele and a classroom teacher Keely Potter.
Based on their exciting work in the field, Kallick and Zmuda map out a transformative model of personalization that puts students at the center and asks them to employ the set of dispositions for engagement and learning known as the Habits of Mind. They share the perspectives of educators engaged in this work; highlight the habits that empower students to pursue aspirations, investigate problems, design solutions, chase curiosities, and create performances; and provide tools and recommendations for adjusting classroom practices to facilitate learning that is self-directed, dynamic, sometimes messy, and always meaningful.
