Learning Forward’s summer reads

Educators love a good beach read, and Memorial Day weekend kicks off the season! We know you’ll also fit in a professional title or two as the summer progresses, so here are a few suggestions for where to start.

 

Taking the Lead

Aspiring to boost how you leverage and support teacher leaders?

Read Taking the Lead: New Roles for Teachers and School-based Coaches, 2nd Edition to explore 10 specific roles for school-based coaches. The more clear you are about the purpose of coaches and teacher leaders, the more equipped your whole team will be to carry out the important work of supporting teaching and learning in schools.

 

Thinking systemically about continuous improvement in your district?

Too often, district leaders are overlooked as learners and as leaders of learning. Becoming a Learning System looks at the big picture for creating a culture and structures that establish and sustain ongoing adult learning at the district level.

 

Are your PLCs ready for an overhaul?

Becoming a Learning Team puts the purpose of team time front and center – learning for all, students and teachers alike. Read about a five-stage cycle of inquiry where teachers determine and address their most pressing learning needs based on student needs and the instructional materials in use in schools.

 

Ready to put equity front and center?

If you didn’t read the October issue of The Learning Professional focused on equity, pick up a copy today. The issue features several thought leaders and strategies to build educators’ capacity to provide an excellent learning experience for all students. You might need multiple copies to share with peers.
