Leaders (and we are all leaders) might explain WHY we need to work together
Start with WHY (a book)
Teachers might be attracted to this title... Instead of starting with "What we need to study this week...", we could start with "Here's WHY we need to study."
I am a taxpayer and I believe that teachers, students, principals and parents need descriptions of a new way of teaching. I wake up every morning with Dr. Fischler's question in my head: "How do you become a visible change agent in this environment?" and "Time is a variable" and "The Student is the Class." The words of Daniel H. Pink, Will Sutherland, John Corlette, Eliot Levine, Elliot Washor, Charles Mojkowski and Dennis Littky inform my daily work.
