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.
(ASCD book, 2012) 5" x 9", 160 pages.
This guide’s tips, strategies, sample questions and statements, and peacemaking tools will help teachers successfully use restorative practices in their classrooms.
In this stirring follow-up to the award-winning Fostering Resilient Learners, Kristin Van Marter Souers and Pete Hall take you to the next level of trauma-invested practice. To get there, they explain, educators need to build a "nest"—a positive learning environment shaped by three new Rs of education: relationship, responsibility, and regulation.
Conversations between administrators and teachers take place every day, for many reasons, but what can we do to elevate them so that they lead to better professional relationships, more effective school leaders and teachers, and improved learning for students? C.R.A.F.T. Conversations for Teacher Growth offers the answer, demonstrating how exchanges that are clear, realistic, appropriate, flexible, and timely can be transformational. The authors offer explicit guidance for developing the skills necessary to move through all components of a C.R.A.F.T. conversation: planning, opening, engaging, closing, reflecting, and following up.
