  • Transforming school climate and learningTransforming school climate and learning : beyond bullying and compliance

    Preble, William, 1953-

    Preble (education, New England College) and Gordon, who has been a teacher, school director, and education professor, detail a program for school leaders to use to transform a school climate to improve the quality of teaching and learning. They move beyond the problem of bullying and complying with school demands to addressing an overall relationship of students to school and learning, as they describe the research evidence for climate in supporting the social and emotional well-being of students and achieving strong academic results. They challenge the idea that safer schools are places with more rules and argue that interaction between positive climate, student engagement, respectful caring relationships, empowerment, and learning is needed for high achievement. Their program focuses on a leadership model that includes students and teachers collaborating to collect and analyze school data and a process of five stages: empowering students and teachers, data collection, analysis and goal setting, action planning and project development, and sustaining change and continuous improvement.

  • Hot combHot comb

    Flowers, Ebony, author, illustrator.

    "Hot Comb offers a poignant glimpse into Black women's lives and coming of age stories as seen across a crowded, ammonia-scented hair salon while ladies gossip and bond over the burn. The titular story "Hot Comb" is about a young girl's first perm--a doomed ploy to look cool and to stop seeming "too white" in the all-black neighborhood her family has just moved to. In "Virgin Hair" taunts of "tender-headed" sting as much as the perm itself. It's a scenario that repeats fifteen years later as an adult when, tired of the maintenance, Flowers shaves her head only to be hurled new put-downs. Realizations about race, class, and the imperfections of identity swirl through Flowers' stories and ads, which are by turns sweet, insightful, and heartbreaking."--

  • ShoutShout : a poetry memoir

    Anderson, Laurie Halse, author.

    Bestselling author Laurie Halse Anderson is known for the unflinching way she writes about, and advocates for, survivors of sexual assault. Now, inspired by her fans and enraged by how little in our culture has changed since her groundbreaking novel Speak was first published twenty years ago, she has written a poetry memoir that is as vulnerable as it is rallying, as timely as it is timeless. In free verse, Anderson shares reflections, rants, and calls to action woven between deeply personal stories from her life that she's never written about before. Searing and soul-searching, this important memoir is a denouncement of our society's failures and a love letter to all the people with the courage to say #MeToo and #TimesUp, whether aloud, online, or only in their own hearts. Shout speaks truth to power in a loud, clear voice-- and once you hear it, it is impossible to ignore

    Wiggins, Alexis, author.

    "The Spider Web Discussion is a simple technique that puts this kind of class within every teacher's reach. The name comes from the web-like diagram the observer makes to record interactions as students actively participate in the discussion, lead and support one another's learning, and build community. It's proven to work across all subject areas and with all ages, and you only need a little know-how, a rubric, and paper and pencil to get started. As students practice Spider Web Discussion, they become stronger communicators, more empathetic teammates, better problem solvers, and more independent learners--college and career ready skills that serve them well in the classroom and beyond." -- Publisher's description.
