What does it feel like to walk into your school? Is it a welcoming place, where everyone feels valued? Most school improvement efforts focus on academic goals, instructional models, curriculum, and assessments. But sometimes what can make or break your learning community are the intangibles--the relationships, identity, and connections that make up its culture. Authors Fisher, Frey, and Pumpian believe that no school improvement effort will be effective unless school culture is addressed. They identify five pillars that are critical to building a culture of achievement: 1. Welcome: Imagine if all staff members in your school considered it their job to make every student, parent, and visitor feel noticed, welcomed, and valued. 2. Do no harm: Your school rules should be tools for teaching students to become the moral and ethical citizens you expect them to be. 3. Choice words: When the language students hear helps them tell a story about themselves that is one of possibility and potential, students perform in ways that are consistent with that belief. 4. It's never too late to learn: Can you push students to go beyond the minimum needed to get by, to discover what they are capable of achieving? 5. Best school in the universe: Is your school the best place to teach and learn? The best place to work? Drawing on their years of experience in the classroom, the authors explain how these pillars support good teaching and learning. In addition, they provide 19 action research tools that will help you create a culture of achievement, so that your school or classroom is the best it can be. After reading this book, you'll see why culture makes the difference between a school that enables success for all students and a school that merely houses those students during the school day.

What are "essential questions," and how do they differ from other kinds of questions? What's so great about them? Why should you design and use essential questions in your classroom? Essential questions (EQs) help target standards as you organize curriculum content into coherent units that yield focused and thoughtful learning. In the classroom, EQs are used to stimulate students' discussions and promote a deeper understanding of the content. Whether you are an Understanding by Design (UbD) devotee or are searching for ways to address standards--local or Common Core State Standards--in an engaging way, Jay McTighe and Grant Wiggins provide practical guidance on how to design, initiate, and embed inquiry-based teaching and learning in your classroom. Offering dozens of examples, the authors explore the usefulness of EQs in all K-12 content areas, including skill-based areas such as math, PE, language instruction, and arts education. As an important element of their backward design approach to designing curriculum, instruction, and assessment, the authors *Give a comprehensive explanation of why EQs are so important; *Explore seven defining characteristics of EQs; *Distinguish between topical and overarching questions and their uses; *Outline the rationale for using EQs as the focal point in creating units of study; and *Show how to create effective EQs, working from sources including standards, desired understandings, and student misconceptions. Using essential questions can be challenging--for both teachers and students--and this book provides guidance through practical and proven processes, as well as suggested "response strategies" to encourage student engagement. Finally, you will learn how to create a culture of inquiry so that all members of the educational community--students, teachers, and administrators--benefit from the increased rigor and deepened understanding that emerge when essential questions become a guiding force for learners of all ages.

ما الذي يريد أن يعرفه قادة المدارس؟ في هذا الكتاب يعتمد توماس ر. هور على خبرته التي تزيد عن 25 عاماً في قيادة المدرسة ويقدم نصيحته التي لا تقدر بثمن حول إدارة المدرسة، فيتناول التحديات الماثلة أمام قادة المدارس من تقييم عمل المعلمين إلى التعامل مع أهالي الطلبة، ومن إدارة الاجتماعات إلى صنع الفرق، فيقدم لنا إستراتيجياته التي أثبت نجاحها. يقول هور: إن القيادة مبنية على العلاقات، وأفضل الإداريين يدعمون العمل في الفريق الواحد القائم على الزمالة ويثمنون التنوع ويشجعون كل من يحيط بهم؛ لكي ينمو ويتطور. يستعين بأمثلة من مدرسته التي يقودها فيلخص لنا الوسائل التي تجعل القائد أكثر تأثيراً ويخلق ثقافة التعلم. كما يبحث في كتابه هذا في تاريخ القيادة ومستقبلها، حيث يركز على الطريقة التي يتبعها المربون في سبيل تقدم المدارس. إن كتاب فن القيادة المدرسية، الذي يضم بين دفتيه ما يزيد عن 100 جملة مقتبسة مما قاله التربويون في مختلف أنحاء العالم يشكل وصفاً حياً مفعماً بالأفكار حول ما تقتضيه قيادة المدرسة. «من خلال روحه المرحة والممتعة واستقامته وصدق كلامه الذي يخلو من الرطانة الغريبة يكتسب هور المصداقية والاحترام. إن وصفه للحياة داخل المدرسة يجد صدى له في خبرات معظم المعلمين والإداريين وأهالي الطلبة.» رولاند بارت. العبيكان للنشر

Looking for advice and guidance on how to implement differentiated instruction throughout your school? Learn from the experts. Administrators and teachers alike will find viable ideas and answers to questions as leaders at two schools share milestones and vignettes from their real-life experiences in converting entire faculties to this dynamic approach to teaching and learning. The authors balance broadly applicable guidance with specific illustrations of how two schools--a middle-income elementary school and a mixed-income high school--experienced the change process in dramatically different ways. In both instances, the new approach to teaching and learning had sweeping, positive results for staff and students. Carol Ann Tomlinson, Kay Brimijoin, and Lane Narvaez have combined their expertise with differentiation in schools--including professional development, research, leadership, coaching, and teaching--to highlight factors that contributed to the continuing success of school reinvention efforts such as *Approaching change with the particular school culture in mind. *Leading a staff toward change with appropriate pushes, pauses, and acknowledgments. *Fostering continued growth in understanding and skill with differentiation in the classroom. *Encouraging teachers to reinforce one another's strengths. *Monitoring progress toward expanded flexibility in instructional approaches. *Nurturing teacher leaders who can sustain the effort beyond one principal's tenure. *Providing strong support and role models for deep and broad changes in the school's teaching practices and learning potential. Every educator seeking to move beyond isolated efforts to differentiate instruction will find practical support and inspiration in this book. At the same time, you'll gain understanding about the key characteristics needed for deep, lasting instructional change that taps into the learning potential of all students in your classrooms and schools.
