Take educational outcomes way beyond facts and information with this collection of tools for teaching students how to think and behave intelligently when they encounter problems and challenges. A series of 42 tools, based on ASCD's ground-breaking Habits of Mind series, helps elementary school teachers plan lessons and classroom activities that teach students 16 thoughtful behaviors that promote successful learning in the classroom and beyond.
Each tool includes a brief explanation, step-by-step instructions, worksheets, samples, and resource pages. Plus, another set of tools helps you create teacher training sessions that introduce all 16 habits to faculty and provide a launching pad for teachers to teach these valuable lifelong skills. Interactive versions of all the tools are available for download at the ASCD website.

Educational coaches—whether math, literacy, instructional, or curriculum coaches—vary in the content of the work they do and in the grade range of the teachers with whom they work. But “good coaching is good coaching,” as coaching expert Cathy A. Toll affirms in this, her newest book. All coaches seek to help solve problems and increase teacher success, and they all depend on effective collaboration to do so. This practical guide shows readers how to get the most out of educational coaching.
