Even On Your Worst Day You Can Be A Student S Best Hope

As Manny Scott travels the world speaking to students and educators, he meets young people whose stories sound a lot like his own—a childhood that was marked by poverty, instability, violence, and despair until a few caring educators showed him how to find meaning in the classroom and gave him a glimpse of his own possibilities. So many kids he meets today need this kind of hope and practical assistance. But with all that is already on educators’ plates, what can an individual teacher do to help traumatized children believe in themselves, succeed in school, and graduate prepared for work and life? Here, you’ll find answers. With the same passion that inspires so many who hear him speak, Scott presents an approach informed by the teachers who helped him and honed through years of connecting with kids who desperately need someone to show them a path to a more positive future. He shares the little things you can do to prepare yourself for the hard work of making a difference and offers advice for bridging cultural divides, earning students’ trust, and equipping them to take responsibility for their own success. This book is a reminder of the incredible power every teacher has to help young people rewrite their destinies—and it’s a call to action for all who read it.

Using Understanding By Design In The Culturally And Linguistically Diverse Classroom

Using Understanding By Design In The Culturally And Linguistically Diverse Classroom

How can today’s teachers, whose classrooms are more culturally and linguistically diverse than ever before, ensure that their students achieve at high levels? How can they design units and lessons that support English learners in language development and content learning—simultaneously? Authors Amy Heineke and Jay McTighe provide the answers by adding a lens on language to the widely used Understanding by Design® framework (UbD® framework) for curriculum design, which emphasizes teaching for understanding, not rote memorization. Readers will learn * the components of the UbD framework; * the fundamentals of language and language development; * how to use diversity as a valuable resource for instruction by gathering information about students’ background knowledge from home, community, and school; * how to design units and lessons that integrate language development with content learning in the form of essential knowledge and skills; and * how to assess in ways that enable language learners to reveal their academic knowledge. Student profiles, real-life classroom scenarios, and sample units and lessons provide compelling examples of how teachers in all grade levels and content areas use the UbD framework in their culturally and linguistically diverse classrooms. Combining these practical examples with findings from an extensive research base, the authors deliver a useful and authoritative guide for reaching the overarching goal: ensuring that all students have equitable access to high-quality curriculum and instruction.

Relationship Responsibility And Regulation

Relationship Responsibility And Regulation

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. Drawing from their extensive experience working with schools, students, and families throughout the country, the authors Explain how to create a culture of safety in which everyone feels valued, important, and capable of learning. Describe the four areas of need—emotional, relational, physical, and control—that drive student behaviors and show how to meet these needs with interventions framed around the new three Rs. Illustrate trauma-invested practices in action through real scenarios that identify students' unmet needs, examine the situation from five stakeholder perspectives, and suggest interventions to support students and their families. Offer opportunities to challenge your beliefs and develop deeper and different ways of thinking about your role in your students' lives. Educators have a unique opportunity to influence students' learning, attitudes, and futures. This book will invigorate your practice and equip you to empower those you serve—whatever their personal histories.

Supervision Modules To Support Educators In Collaborative Teaching

Supervision Modules To Support Educators In Collaborative Teaching

The classroom teacher in the 21st century is no longer a solo practitioner. What can school leaders use to facilitate on-going, job-embedded, intentionally focused professional development that is unique to the collective needs of teacher pairs and teams as they work together? What can teacher preparation supervisors provide to support teacher candidates and cooperating teachers as they plan, teach, and assess student learning in a co-teaching context? Supervision Modules to Support Educators in Collaborative Teaching is a research-based supervisory handbook designed to promote on-going teacher reflection and development in collaborative teaching contexts. It is a tool for school leaders and teacher preparation supervisors to use for in-service and pre-service teacher development at all grade levels PK-12. The handbook’s many resources provide practical guidance for meaningful teacher development that is field-based, relevant to daily teacher work, and artfully presented to build collaboration among teachers as they reflect and learn together. Unique to this approach is that school leaders and supervisors learn alongside teachers and teacher candidates as relevant topics are explored. The handbook contains a collection of eighteen interactive, activity-based modules that focus on topical content knowledge and productive teaching practices. Embedded in the modules are pair and team activities that address problem-solving, dimensions of collaborative teaching, communication and collaboration skill development, understanding of diversity, cultural responsiveness, and shared understanding of evidence-based practices. This resource is easy to use. Once school leaders and supervisors select a module topic to address the needs of a particular pair or team, they are supported with foundational knowledge of the most current research on the topic, discussion questions about the topic, suggestions of productive practices, questions to deepen personal and group understanding, reflective professional growth activities, critical analysis of teaching scenarios, and monitoring, follow-up, and goal setting strategies. Modules can be used in any order and include reproducible materials for pairs and teams to use as they collaborate and grow professionally.
