From low-effort ideas—like thank you notes and team lunches—to more high-effort (but worth it) ideas like award ceremonies, the book describes inexpensive—even free—activities that fit the routine, budget, and culture of K–12 schools. If you're a principal, district administrator, department head, manager, or someone heading up a school-based workgroup, don't settle for generic advice when you can get this education-specific book.

Focus on Retention: How to Keep Your Best Teachers
In Building Equity, Dominique Smith, Nancy Frey, Ian Pumpian, and Douglas Fisher, colleagues at San Diego’s innovative Health Sciences High & Middle College, introduce the School Equity Taxonomy, a new model to clarify the structural and interpersonal components of an equitable and excellent schooling experience, and the School Equity Audit, a survey-based tool to help school and teacher leaders uncover equity-related issues. Built on the authors’ own experiences and those of hundreds of educators throughout the United States, this book is filled with examples of policy initiatives and practices that support critical standards of equity and high-quality, inclusive learning experiences.
This guide’s tips, strategies, sample questions and statements, and peacemaking tools will help teachers successfully use restorative practices in their classrooms.
In this revised and updated 4th edition, Discipline with Dignity provides in-depth guidance for implementing a proven approach to classroom management that can help students make better choices and teachers be more effective. Emphasizing the importance of mutual respect and self-control, the authors offer specific strategies and techniques for building strong relationships with disruptive students and countering the toxic social circumstances that affect many of them, including dysfunctional families, gangs, and poverty.
