® PLC at Work Success Story

“The strength of the professional development is the real-life examples they bring to the table.”

Westmont H.S. District 201

—Judy Fancher, assistant superintendent

WESTMONT, ILLINOIS

DEMOGRAPHICS ›  390 students ›  14% Students with

IMPLEMENTATION Though small in size with just 36 teachers, Westmont’s PLC collaborated to create action plans and form SMART goals to plan meaningful interventions for students. More importantly, though, the staff engaged in deep discussion to collectively decide on the specific learning goals, meeting norms, and data benchmarks that would guide the critical work of their PLC. An early warning system was established to track failing grades, absences, credits earned, and referrals from the prior school year, to determine which students needed the most support. Westmont also provided its students with additional time and support for learning, such as a literacy workshop tailored to students’ specific needs, and college readiness programs for learners who want explicit training for the ACT or SAT tests.

an Individualized Education Program

›  4% English language learners ›  20% Hispanic ›  7.7% African American ›  64.7% Caucasian ›  3.6% Multiracial ›  4.1% Asian Westmont H.S. District 201 is located in Westmont, Illinois, a community of approximately 24,650 residents.

RESULTS Westmont’s accomplishments as a PLC have led to incredible success for students across the board, including its recognition as the most improved high school in Illinois, and one of the most improved and top-performing high schools in the nation. Before forming its PLC, Westmont’s graduation rate stood around 88 percent. In each of the seven years since implementation, that rate has been a shining 99 percent, with all of its students graduating on time in the 2017–2018 school year. The number of students passing Advanced Placement exams has also increased in that time, growing more than tenfold from 29 students to 303.

EXPERT

& QA Why is the PLC process so important in grades preK–2? If we don’t get it right at the early childhood level, then kids are going to struggle. It’s so critical that preK–2 teachers work collaboratively to make sure they’re taking collective responsibility for every single child. And educators can’t do this if they’re working in isolation or not focusing on the right work. This book is designed to help schools build a solid foundation that will set up young learners for success throughout their preK–12 education and in life. Why has the PLC process not been as widely used in early childhood classrooms? PLCs focus on three big ideas: learning, collaboration, and results. In preschools, the collaboration piece is usually well established. But how do we define learning in a preschool classroom? And when it comes to assessment, there isn’t standardized testing for preschoolers. Because two of the three ideas aren’t clearly defined in the early childhood years, it’s oftentimes easier to leave these teachers out rather than include them in the work. Also, when we talk to administrators, many tell us that they were not primary grade teachers themselves and are unsure how to support preK, kindergarten, first-grade, and second-grade teams. What is one common challenge educators face when doing this work? Time. At the beginning of the book, we ask the question: Do we believe that all of the kids in the school belong to all of us? If the answer is yes, then when the two- and three-year-olds and

Diane Kerr, author

Tracey A. Hulen, author

Jacqueline Heller, author

Brian K. Butler, author

the kindergarteners, first graders, and second graders walk through the door, we must be just as committed to them as we are to the older students. When there’s a will to do it, then the time can be found. How does this book help educators implement the PLC process? Some people who pick up this book will know a lot about the PLC process but not necessarily about early childhood. And then there will be individuals who are experts on early childhood but are new to the PLC process. This is a resource for everyone. There are many best practices, tools, and real-life examples throughout the book. We also included practical tips for administrators, teachers, and coaches. We really dive deep and get into the granular level of what this work should look like in practice at the early childhood level.

EXPERT

& QA Why did you write HEART!? I wanted K–16 educators, all of us who are part of the educational enterprise, to connect or reconnect emotionally to our professional work each day and to be more reflective in that connection. In short, to know and feel our why.

What specific problems will HEART! help educators solve? Balance most of all. Making the professional choice to understand happiness in the workplace and to be fully engaged and thriving in your work life can come with a price of emotional exhaustion. HEART! helps you learn how to find the right internal balance so that the best of yourself shows up at work and at home.

Timothy D. Kanold, author

How will your next book SOUL! continue the journey in HEART!? All I can say to the readers of HEART! is get ready for a continued journey and deep dive into your professional soul story—your commitment to become good in order to create good in others. Similar to HEART!, SOUL! is a journal book. Readers will engage with my stories and the stories of other educators as we go on a journey of Searching, Overcoming, Unifying, and Living our soul story lives every day!

SOUL! Coming in 2021

How does your HEART! DVD complement your best-selling book? Surprisingly, for me at least, HEART! became a national bestseller almost overnight and received the 2018 Gold Medal Award from the Independent Publishers Group. This happened, I think in part, because of the numerous book study groups that popped up around the country in various schools, including graduate schools. This widespread interest in collaborative study created a need for more formal materials to help these book study groups work their way through the book, under the guidance and care of experts from Solution Tree. The DVD takes each of the five parts of the book and provides both self- and group study guides and video to support educators’ personal professional growth as they journal and share their own teaching stories. These personal teaching stories are what have been so gratifying for me.

RTI at Work™ Success Story

Windsor Central School District WINDSOR, NEW YORK

DEMOGRAPHICS ›  1,592 students ›  13% Special education ›  1% English language learners ›  2% Hispanic ›  2% African American ›  92% Caucasian ›  2% Multiracial ›  1% Asian ›  1% Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander ›  0% Native American Windsor Central School District is located in Windsor, New York, a community of approximately 6,250 residents.

MODEL PLC SCHOOL

CHALLENGE Windsor Central School District, like others in upstate New York, was facing dramatic changes: The area population—and subsequently, school enrollment—was declining significantly. Poverty was dramatically gripping families and their students. Windsor Central was ranked 13th out of 15 among districts in its region, when considering overall elementary and high school testing rates. Staff turnover was rampant. And a 78 percent four-year graduation rate for the district was not satisfactory either. “Our staff was isolated, and it did not focus on student learning outcomes,” superintendent Dr. Jason Andrews said. “We were not really a desirable place for folks to go.” Most importantly, students were not receiving the targeted support they needed to succeed beyond the K−12 classroom environment. It was then that Dr. Andrews and Windsor Central’s staff knew it needed to act and take accountability for the learning of every student across its high school, middle school, and three elementary schools.

IMPLEMENTATION Windsor Central contributes its success with RTI at Work to the tools and strategies gained at Solution Tree events, as well as collaborating with Solution Tree associates on staff conference days. “They certainly helped to ensure that we were staying as focused, consistent, and adhering to the critical elements of quality PLC implementation over the course of many, many years,” said Barbara Phillips, Windsor Central’s director of learning and continuous improvement. Windsor Central’s administrators and teachers also utilized key book resources, such as Taking Action and Simplifying Response to Intervention, to broaden their knowledge of RTI and inform decision making in the

48 08MCA.indb 48

best interests of their students. These texts provided the staff at Windsor with the research-based, practical strategies and tools to apply to their own innovative, locally developed structures to meet the needs of diverse learners. The Extended Student Contact Model, for instance, fostered multigrade-level collaboration between mathematics and ELA content experts, allowing students to have the same core content instructors for two consecutive years. The model, intentionally designed to deeply address the Four Critical Questions of a PLC at Work®, also provided instructors with the opportunities to build stronger relationships with students, families, and colleagues.

We’re continually looking at how students are doing, so that we’re getting interventions to the kids who need the most, when they need it the most.” —Barbara Phillips, Windsor central director of learning and continuous improvement

IMPLEMENTATION (Cont.) In addition, a team of Windsor educators was developed to serve as full-time Tier 3 interventionists to fill foundational gaps of elementary students performing in the bottom 3−5 percent of their

peer group. The team now travels to all elementary buildings, with their time regularly adjusted based on the current need of elementary students across the district.

RESULTS With more than 15 years invested into PLC and RTI work, Windsor Central is proud to share their accomplishments. The district now consistently ranks first or second in the region academically, despite having much starker poverty rates than its peers. “To get to number one, that’s a story in and of itself,” Dr. Andrews said. “The thought, 15 years ago, is that it would be laughable that Windsor would be first in the region.” But the district’s progress is no joke: after initially offering three advanced courses, Windsor Central

High School now offers 34 such classes. Windsor Central’s graduation rate is now a promising 95 percent. “There’s been a whole lot of innovation. And part of that, from a cultural standpoint, is building that collective responsibility—truly getting to the ‘our kids’ (mentality) in our buildings across the district, across grade levels and between grade levels,” Dr. Andrews said. “We’re all responsible for all of their performance and their learning.”

Mike Mattos, author

What challenges were you seeing in schools that motivated you to write this book?

What is one key mindset, strategy, or practice you’d like educators to take away from this book?

A school’s mindset to support students who struggle to learn is different from when students struggle to behave. For instance, when a student struggles with reading, educators generally respond with compassion and are ready to do whatever it takes to support that student and close the gap. But when a student struggles with behavior, the response is usually one of frustration.

We must treat behavior the same as academics. Behavior skills are not genetic—they are taught. As educators, we shouldn’t assume that teaching these skills is a job that needs to be done in the home. If we’re not pleased with the way students are acting, we need to take the time to teach the behaviors that we want learners to demonstrate.

We’ve also seen an increase in mental health needs and social-emotional needs in schools over time. With this book, our goal is to give educators the know-how to fully support students in the same way behaviorally as they do academically.

How does this book specifically help educators address these challenges?

FEATURED RESOURCE

Very few actions are ever taken to actually teach the children the behaviors that we want them to demonstrate. Historically, we’ve just tried to scare students into better performance. But we know that exclusionary practices, such as detention or withholding recess, do not work. This book delivers a plethora of specific practices, processes, tools, and templates—all aligned to the RTI at Work™ and PLC at Work® processes—that teachers, teams, and entire school communities can use to support students in positive, productive ways. Behavior Solutions also builds upon two foundational PLC and RTI resources: Learning by Doing and Taking Action. By using these three resources together, educators will have everything they need to fully implement an effective multitiered system of support (MTSS).

Assessment Success Story

Mildred M. Hawk Elementary School CORINTH, TEXAS

DEMOGRAPHICS ›  730 Students ›  9% Free and reduced lunch ›  2% Limited English proficient ›  8% Special education ›  5% African American ›  2% Hispanic ›  4% Asian/Pacific Islander ›  1% Native American/Alaska Native ›  5% Multiracial Hawk Elementary School is located in Corinth, Texas, a suburban area north of the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex. It is currently the largest elementary school in the Denton Independent School District. The elementary schools in the district are designed to serve up to 650 students, but in recent years, Hawk’s enrollment has reached as high as 830 students.

CHALLENGE As Hawk Elementary staff worked to become a professional learning community, they tackled tough conversations about assessment practices. In 2010, they began working with assessment expert Cassandra Erkens. Focusing on the question “How do we know when students have learned it?” teachers began digging deeply into how to identify mastery. What they found was a lack of alignment between assessing and recording mastery of essential standards. This misalignment impacted student learning. Third-grade students were demonstrating a lack of readiness for state assessments. They also routinely underperformed in comparison with fourth- and fifth-grade students, especially in math. To address this, vertical teacher teams were created to collectively assess student problem solving and thinking. Other areas of focus included how to better prepare rigorous common assessments and how to report on them to all stakeholders, including students, parents, and colleagues. As staff began to read and study more about effective use of assessment, they realized they needed tools to help guide instruction.

IMPLEMENTATION Hawk Elementary staff received customized on-site coaching. Specific guidance given during PLC team meetings focused on effective practices for engaging students with learning targets, writing rubrics to measure proficiency, and engaging students in collaboration to make student-friendly rubrics. One of the most powerful strategies teams learned was to score student work collaboratively. In addition, teachers have worked together to unpack the state standards; evaluate each standard for its relevance in the areas of endurance, leverage, and readiness; and identify the most essential standards to measure for mastery. Once the essentials were identified, the teachers designed a standards-based

62 08MCA.indb 62

report card to communicate these standards to all stakeholders. For each standard reported, a common assessment was designed to assess for student mastery. For each assessment, an accompanying rubric was designed to communicate expectations to students and measure performance of the completed task. This paved the way for teachers to work as teams to develop common formative assessments to use throughout instruction to monitor student learning from day to day. Teachers designated weekly PLC meetings to review formative and summative assessments and make decisions about interventions.

“Cassandra Erkens provided us the tools needed to dig deeply into the standards, break them apart, and collaboratively determine proficiency of these standards,” says Principal Susannah O’Bara. “She also guided us in becoming an assessment-literate campus. Now, we facilitate deep learning of rigorous standards for our students. All teachers work in teams to design common formative assessments, and they use these assessments to guide instruction and maximize student achievement daily.”

Although Hawk Elementary transitioned to a more rigorous state assessment, the practices they learned enabled them to maintain high student achievement. Students have learned to take ownership of their learning by using feedback and tracking their progress through a variety of tools developed by teachers with the support of Solution Tree experts.

After Hawk Elementary initiated a standardsbased grading and reporting system, the entire district worked to transition to this system. All elementary schools in the Denton ISD currently use a standards-based report card, and all secondary schools are implementing standards-based grading. This change in grading and reporting has clarified learning objectives for staff, students, and the community.

RTI EXPERT

& QA

Tom Schimmer, author

How is the traditional grading paradigm incongruous with the way educators teach today? Traditional grading is antiquated for several reasons. First, the traditional model of grading was based on making distinctions between weighted task types (tests, quizzes, assignments, labs, projects); curricular standards, in place since the mid- to late 1990s have never been organized that way. Second, traditional grading overwhelmingly emphasizes making the superficial distinction between right and wrong; current curricular standards for most students are cognitively complex and require teachers to identify gradations of quality (often articulated in the form of a rubric). Third, traditional grading has often been, at least in part, about coercing behavioral compliance. Through extra credit or penalties, student achievement grades have been leveraged against the degree to which they’ve met behavioral expectations. Fourth, traditional grading utilizes 101 distinct levels of performance (0–100 percent), which is both too finite and imprecise. Percentage systems feel precise, but a percentage score (i.e. 75 percent) does not distinguish between the types of errors made; 75 percent can be arrived at by leaving five of twenty questions blank or by making five simple mistakes (4x3=7) despite conceptually knowing the correct problem-solving procedures. Traditional grading is simply misaligned to today’s educational standards and outcomes.

What are challenges teachers should anticipate in shifting to standards-based grading? Teachers should not underestimate the power the status quo holds in any change effort, but especially with shifting to standards-based grading. Many colleagues, parents, community members, and even students are unlikely to embrace this change immediately, especially if the traditional system gave them a real or perceived advantage; there may even be a few who actively seek to undermine the effort through fearmongering or ridicule. As well, teachers should anticipate implementation errors; moving to standardsbased grading is often a learn-by-doing endeavor, and most implementation errors are not egregious or harmful. With shifting to standards-based grading, the cliché is true: think big, start small. In addition, teachers should anticipate that some will conflate the shift to standards-based grading with timeless issues of concern. For example, students not completing their homework is a timeless phenomenon,

yet some will try to conflate the shift away from grading homework to the lack of completion; when homework was graded there were students who didn’t complete it, so more often than not, the issue is the same pre- and postimplementation. While it is possible for unanticipated issues to emerge throughout the implementation effort, it will be important to distinguish between issues that authentically emerged as a result of the change effort and those that are just arguments of convenience.

How will this book help educators shift their grading paradigm? Grading from the Inside Out is intentionally organized into three parts. First, readers will come to understand why grading has to change and how to ensure that all grading practices produce accurate information about achievement while maintaining student confidence about eventual success. Then, readers will take a deep dive into the three big ideas that make up the standards-based mindset: giving students full credit for their learning, redefining accountability, and repurposing homework. While each of these elements does rely on the other two, educators can strategically use any one of them as a point of entry into the conversation. Finally, readers will explore the external changes that eventually become necessary to shift to standard-based reporting. By utilizing levels of proficiency, teaching and assessing student attributes, and possibly developing a standards-based report card, teachers and schools will complete the shift to standards-based reporting where clarity, specificity, and transparency are prioritized. The shift must happen inside out; when teachers first shift their minds, they will subsequently shift their actions.

Newhall School District is a group of ten elementary schools located in Valencia, California, a neighborhood of approximately 61,000 residents in Santa Clarita, California.

CHALLENGE When superintendent Jeff Pelzel first arrived at the Newhall School District, Common Core State Standards for literacy and math instruction were also being rolled out across California. Pelzel, then an assistant superintendent and content director for Newhall, knew that finding the right instruction strategy for its ten elementary schools—five of which were classified as Title I—would be critical to student success. Approximately 30 percent of Newhall’s students at that time were English learners, and around 45 percent of students came from an economically disadvantaged background. “Every other district around here adopted its math curriculum early, but I knew what was available was not good for us, so we delayed and delayed,” Pelzel said. After attending an Association of California School Administrators workshop, as well as watching Timothy D. Kanold’s breakout session at a PLC at Work® institute, Pelzel said he knew he had found the answer.

IMPLEMENTATION Sarah Schuhl, a certified Mathematics at Work™ associate, began working with Newhall to implement the ten HighLeverage Team Actions detailed in the Mathematics Beyond the Common Core in a PLC at Work® series. Four teachers from each school were involved in the rollout process, ensuring consistent implementation across the entire district.

,

In year two, Schuhl met with every K–5 teacher, focusing an entire day on each grade level, three times during the school year to unwrap standards for upcoming mathematics curriculum units. The ten High Level Team Actions were reviewed before, during, and after each unit as well.

48.1 percent of Newhall’s students who are economically disadvantaged are now meeting or exceeding state math standards, compared to the Los Angeles County rate of 28.6 percent.”

IMPLEMENTATION CONTINUED In year three, sixth-grade teachers met with Schuhl three times during the year to unwrap standards and create common assessments, and response to intervention (RTI) practices were created across the entire district with a focus on Tier 2 mathematics interventions. Schuhl also met with new teachers three times during the year to share mathematics instructional and assessment practices.

also met with Schuhl to refine the RTI pyramid and implement strong core instruction using the ten team actions and the four critical questions of PLC at Work®. “If you’re going to invest in this work, it has to be about a long-term investment. Not one year, not two years, but a minimum of three-plus years of work,” Pelzel said. “If you can do that, you’re going to be in a much better situation.”

In year four, Schuhl met with special education teachers for mathematics training three times. Leadership teams

RESULTS According to the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, Newhall’s students collectively improved their proficiency in mathematics from 54 percent to 71.85 percent over three years. English proficiency also improved from 67 percent to 71.13 percent in that span. As for Newhall’s economically disadvantaged students, 48.1 percent

EXPERT

& QA

Timothy D. Kanold, author

How does this series help strengthen self-efficacy in both teachers and students of mathematics? A primary goal for this series is to strengthen self-efficacy. This includes student belief in their capability to learn the mathematics we need them to know and teacher belief in their capability to successfully help each student learn the expected standards for mathematics. Self-efficacy is nurtured through a formative process of learning, engagement, and reflection unit by unit. Our Unit Planning books help collaborative teams of mathematics teachers to collectively make sense of the standards students are to learn throughout their grade level or course. Through an effective and formative unit planning process, teachers learn collectively how to help students with content connections while taking ownership of the mathematics tasks, tools, and instructional strategies they are to use to develop their confidence as learners.

Why is the PLC at Work® process so important to success in planning and teaching units of study? The PLC at Work process addresses the primary issue of mathematics rigor inequities caused by isolated teacher decision-making. As mathematics teachers collaborate to answer the four PLC critical questions, they agree on the standards students will learn in each unit throughout the year and develop common assessments so they can analyze student learning to make plans for reengaging students who did not yet learn and those who did learn. By working together, teacher teams ensure equity in learning mathematics across classrooms with a collective and shared response to that learning. Pacing and rigor for the mathematics standards are discussed and implemented together.

What will educators find in the Mathematics Unit Planning books that will give them practical guidance for their classrooms?

Sarah Schuhl, author

student-friendly “I can” statements and identify prior knowledge to use during routines or warm-ups to help students make connections. Teams create a common unit calendar to clarify what students learn each day and when to give and respond to common assessments. Teams agree on the vocabulary and notations, types of tasks, tools and resources, and strategies to use throughout each unit. The second part of each book provides completed unit plan examples for each grade level, based on a vertical content learning trajectory.

How would teachers use these books in connection with your Every Student Can Learn Mathematics series? The Mathematics Unit Planning books are an extension and part of our Every Student Can Learn Mathematics series as an additional support to grade- or course-based teams of mathematics teachers. The Unit Planning books help teams clearly define and pace each math unit and organize the unit by essential learning standards. Creating rich mathematics unit plans provides the catalyst for teams to take action on student, common and shared mathematics assessments and interventions, daily lesson design, instruction and tasks, common homework and grading routines, and the effective coaching of this necessary work and focus of each collaborative team. Improving these mathematics practices and routines are the intent of our Every Student Can Learn Mathematics series.

Mathematics Success Story

Hacienda La Puente Unified School District CITY OF INDUSTRY, CALIFORNIA

DEMOGRAPHICS ›  18,860 Students ›  72% Free and reduced lunch ›  19% Limited English proficient ›  10% Special education ›  79.6% Hispanic ›  1% African American ›  3.3% Caucasian ›  13.1% Asian ›  0.1% Native American ›  0.3% Pacific Islander ›  0.5% Multiracial ›  2.1% Other

IMPLEMENTATION District leaders made the decision to bring Dr. Juli K. Dixon to HLPUSD to lead a one-day training for principals and teachers. Afterward, teachers were asked if they would be interested in summer professional development—the answer was an overwhelming yes. HLPUSD began partnering with Solution Tree’s DNA Mathematics experts to drive excellence in mathematics instruction. Leadership scheduled a variety of training opportunities over several years to ensure teachers at all grade levels increased their content knowledge and depth of understanding. Mathematics became a constant part of the district’s academic conversation and focus, with staff developing a sincere commitment to the mindset that all students have the ability to achieve in mathematics.

“The strength of the professional development is the real-life examples they bring to the table.” —Judy Fancher, assistant superintendent

RESULTS HLPUSD’s long-term goal is for all students to complete four years of high school college-preparatory mathematics. Since working with DNA Mathematics, the district has seen consistent growth from year to year and continues to build capacity at the site and district levels. “We face the moral imperative to provide all students an opportunity to learn and apply mathematics,” said Dr. Judy Fancher, HLPUSD assistant superintendent. “As the global economy evolves, students, more than ever, require sophisticated math skills to increase opportunities for postsecondary education and careers.”

EXPERT

& QA

Robert J. Marzano, editor and contributor

Why did you write this book? As we work directly with schools and districts, we wanted to offer some ideas for implementation of the High Reliability SchoolsTM (HRS) framework. The basic structure of the HRS framework has been around for several years, and we sought to help enhance the capacity of leaders within each of the five levels of HRS. This book is a blueprint for how to lead a school through the HRS perspective.

What makes this book unique? The book gives a framework to help leaders and leadership teams ensure that different systems within a school or district work interdependently toward one common end: high levels of student achievement. A lot of leadership books tend to be theoretical, but this book gets to the more granular levels of leadership and offers specific strategies that leaders can really sink their teeth into. We also created 25 leadership reflective scales that readers can use to gauge their progress in implementing a particular piece.

How does PLC at Work® fit into the HRS framework? The two work hand-in-hand. HRS is the long-term framework for continuous school improvement. Embedded inside the HRS framework is the PLC at Work process, which is identified in Level 1. Building a PLC is a powerful and necessary vehicle for leadership and improvement within the HRS structure.

Cameron L. Rains, contributor

Philip B. Warrick, contributor

What are some of the challenges this book helps educators overcome? A range of issues are addressed by HRS level. If you’re having challenges with staff collaboration, then Level 1 will guide you. If you are needing to develop a system that will establish and grow effective practices within every classroom, Level 2 offers a road map for that purpose. If you’re having challenges with the curriculum, Level 3 gives a step-by-step process for creating a curriculum that is guaranteed and viable. If you want to know at the individual student level what his or her strengths and weaknesses are by skill, Level 4 includes a blueprint for how to make this happen. For schools that are ready to commit to competency-based education, Level 5 will show you the way.

What is one main takeaway from this book? School improvement is about putting the right systems in place and then giving the entire school staff enough time to get good at them, rather than chasing quick fixes. We hope this book not only inspires leadership teams to implement effective systems and structures but also empowers them to stay the course over time to get the best results for kids.

& QA

Robin J. Fogarty, author

What inspired you to write this book? People are just beginning to acknowledge that reading growth has completely flatlined. We’re just not moving the needle. Over the years, we’ve implemented various policies, but we have nothing to show for it. That familiar definition of insanity comes to mind, “Doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results.” We are in desperate need of an absolute new way of thinking about literacy education, because what we’re doing does not work, has not worked, and will not work going forward. How can we change this? How can we get kids on point? That’s what we address in this book.

What aspects of teaching literacy need more attention? We’ve found that there is a big disconnect between where teachers think they need to focus (or where they have been directed to focus) and where they should actually be focusing. There’s a crucial dividing line between before students learn the mechanics of reading and after students learn the mechanics. Almost 90 percent of where schools have focused is on the before piece. And that’s because we’ve never clearly articulated what learning should look like after the mechanics of reading are learned. This book takes the hand of educators and leads them through it step by step. Educators will reflect on what they are teaching and how they are teaching it, and then learn how to identify where the priorities should be going forward.

Gene M. Kerns, author

Brian M. Pete, author

What is one key takeaway from this book? The goal is not just to teach students how to read but how to love literacy. And that doesn’t necessarily mean that students must love literature. Students don’t have to sit around reading novels every day in order to be voracious consumers of information. The ultimate goal is to prepare students to learn every day through reading—regardless of the format.

How does this book combine the latest research with practical strategies? We don’t expect every teacher to read all of the research studies published. And researchers don’t often spend enough time in schools to know how to translate the research into daily activities for students. This book fills the gap. We want every teacher who reads this book to be able to say, “I know what I’m doing and why I’m doing it.” When someone asks them why they dealt with a literacy lesson a certain way, they will be able to confidently explain the research base behind the approach.

EXPERT

& QA What inspired you to write this book? I believe that effective teaching and learning has to be reflective of what’s happening socially, economically, and globally. I wrote this book because education tends to lag behind when it comes to preparing students for what lies ahead. Ready for Anything shows how to close growing opportunity gaps that put students at a disadvantage for future employment, earnings potential, and having a good life. It also shifts the focus from content and accountability conversations, which we have a lot of, to conversations about how we can help students understand the world and how they fit in it.

What are the characteristics of a future-ready learner?

Suzette Lovely, author

months when they might have more resources. Stories from outside of education can also be found throughout the book. Being a lifelong educator myself, I understand how easy it can be to lose sight of what’s happening with the rest of the world, and these stories help educators broaden their perspective.

What is one key takeaway from this book? The greatest opportunity for change rests within ourselves. Educators don’t need more resources or more reforms to get better at their craft. We have to make the decision internally. It is really amazing to see how small tweaks can impact our classrooms. There are a lot of easy opportunities for us to improve—and they are right in front of us, ready for the taking.

They are globally aware, civically engaged, and able to adapt to changing environments. They are wholly prepared to make their way in the world. But in reality, what we are seeing is that students don’t really understand the kinds of opportunities that are out there for them or what their future could hold. We need to do a better job as educators to help students see the big picture.

How does this book help guide educators forward? Educators are under a lot of pressure. They are working harder and longer and producing more than ever before. They are also inundated with new reforms and new laws. With all of this going on, it can often feel like we are just spinning our wheels.

Based on the upcoming title Rigorous Learning: Preparing Students for a Changing World The COVID-19 pandemic has upended traditional schooling and created enormous challenges for teachers and schools as they shift to remote student learning. There are numerous difficulties in making this shift that include the adequacy and use of technology, physical isolation, self-management, the daily challenges faced by students and families, and the difficulties of teaching and learning online.

In this blog entry, we will look at some ways to soften and reduce the academic challenges of remote learning, and at the same time consider the use of teaching approaches that help prepare students for a changing world. 1. Focus and share learning goals Students who are learning remotely need clarity as to what they are expected to learn and understand, what skills will be practiced and used, and what student work will be expected to be completed. Highly focused learning goals need to be shared and discussed with students, so they know and understand what is to be learned and what is expected of them. 2. Plan for student engagement It is easier for students to learn at home if they are interested and curious about what they are learning, if learning is meaningful, and if students are actively engaged in the learning process. There are a number of ways to develop interesting, meaningful, engaging activities. 3. Help students manage online learning Online learning can be difficult for many students, who now have to manage their own time, to make sure they have access to technology hardware and software, as well as to find a place to study. In order to help students, teachers can provide students with a set of questions to answer as they prepare to learn online: • What technology are you using for your learning? • Do you have regular access to technology? • Do you have a regular place to learn and study? If not, can you find or develop a space for learning? • If you need help, here is how you can contact me…

& QA

Scott McLeod, author

Julie Graber, author

Why did you write Harnessing Technology for Deeper Learning?

What professional development do you offer to support this book?

We wrote the book for two reasons. First, the 4 Shifts discussion protocol introduced in the book helps educators understand how to make small shifts in their instruction that add up over time to enable deeper learning, greater student agency, more authentic work, and rich technology infusion for the children they serve. Second, we wanted to provide some explicit examples of robust lesson and unit (re)design, since

We happily provide a number of different professional learning opportunities related to the 4 Shifts discussion protocol and its uses. Those range from half-day or full-day instructional redesign workshops to shorter workshops or webinars in which we introduce the protocol and a few redesign examples. It just depends on how deep teachers, principals, and instructional/technology coaches wish to go

there aren’t many books out there that do that.

with their instructional redesign work.

How will it help educators in their daily classroom practice? The protocol that’s introduced in the book is intended to be a very practical, nonjudgmental tool that fosters dialogue and helps educators accomplish their deeper learning goals. A teacher can identify a couple of learning and teaching components and, perhaps with a little help from colleagues, begin shifting those in new directions immediately.

What is unique about this book? This book helps provide a pathway for educators who are struggling to shift more traditional instructional practices into something more meaningful and relevant for the global innovation society in which we now live. The concrete, specific “look-fors” and “think-abouts” in the protocol allow teachers, principals, and instructional/technology coaches to begin moving existing practices forward.

& QA KEYNOTE

Why create an event like Soluciones? As educators, we need to fully commit to helping more Latino students be successful. It’s a demographic that’s growing, and many of these students are learning English as a second language. As a society, we look at these kids as a deficit, but it’s imperative that we begin looking at them as an asset. More than anything, we want to see this student population get to where they need to be in terms of academic excellence.

Why should educators attend Soluciones? The main reason educators should attend Soluciones is that demographically, Latino students and students learning English as a second language aren’t just a Southwest phenomenon anymore. Latino families and students live all over. And these students have a lot of potential, just like any other student. We’ve assembled a group of internationally recognized experts who are very committed to this work and will be accessible to attendees throughout the event.

Who should attend Soluciones? It isn’t just a conference for Latino educators or bilingual educators. It’s for every educator who is interested in how to best serve these students and ensure they learn at high levels. We’ve had several Soluciones events, and rave reviews have come in from people of all backgrounds. Everyone is welcome.

What are some things people should expect to learn when they attend?

Luis F. Cruz, keynote

What are you most looking forward to at this year’s event? I can’t emphasize enough how critically important it is for the “all” in “all students” to include Latino students. Because the reality is that this population is not where it needs to be academically. The good news is that it’s not a mystery anymore—we know exactly what needs to happen in order for these kids and their families to succeed. I’m excited to hold this conference, to come together for two and a half days of learning, and to prepare educators to do the most revolutionary work—which is implementing what they learn when they go back to their schools.

Tom Heirck, author

What inspires or drives your work? As I start my 36th year as an educator, I’ve recognized that there have been changes in the world outside schools that impact our work inside schools. It is absolutely imperative that we strive to ensure that all students learn and become proficient in the necessary skills to become functional, contributing members of society. My personal mantra has been “every student is a success story waiting to be told,” and I believe schools have the capacity and adult talent to ensure this happens.

What will educators find most valuable in Seven Keys to a Positive Learning Environment in Your Classroom? The most valuable aspects of this book are the practical tools and the easy-to-follow steps to ensure that all students learn in a positive environment. The book contains a plethora of reminders that will resonate with teachers and sound, effective practices that will lead to all students achieving the desired outcomes.

What professional development do you offer to support this book? There are workshops aligned with the content of the book and various free reproducibles available as downloadable PDFs on the Solution Tree website. I am also available to personalize professional learning for teams.

What challenges will this book help educators overcome? Four key challenges are addressed in the book: • Behaviors can be taught as we teach academics. • Being positive is a choice. While it may not guarantee results, being negative certainly does. • Expectations are more important than rules. The former are lifelong, the latter are temporary constraints. • Enrichment extends student thinking, not just acknowledges it. Differentiation requires a different approach designed to meet students where they are in the learning progression.

EXPERT

& QA

Tonya C. Balch, author

How does this book support student growth and development?

Brandie M. Oliver, author

Chavez Phelps, author

Bradley V. Balch, author

Teachers are frustrated. They are not being taught the skills they need to really meet the needs of students who come to school with challenges. And now with COVID, educators are particularly worried about how to ensure students receive critical support. We wholeheartedly believe that if educators had some more tools in their toolbox, they could better deal with the social and emotional difficulties students face—and that’s what this book provides.

Many students are dealing with toxic stress and trauma, as well as significant behavioral needs. We have a chapter that ties to mindfulness and self-regulation to help mitigate some of these issues. There’s also a chapter that dives into poverty and the risk factors associated with it. In addition, we dedicate a chapter to teacher self-care, which is often overlooked. Teachers give so much to their students, and they often empty their own bucket without replenishing it. At the end of the day, teachers can’t take care of their students unless they’re taking care of themselves.

Why is social-emotional learning so important in today’s schools?

Why should educators do this work collaboratively rather than alone?

For a number of years, schools and educators have seen social-emotional learning as an additional thing that they have to do on top of everything else. But providing socialemotional support is truly the foundation to learning. Without this foundation, it is very difficult to successfully educate students to their optimal ability. Implementing social-emotional supports helps students regulate their behavior and emotions, as well as think critically. It’s imperative that there continues to be a mindset shift among educators around this important work.

We all have areas of expertise, and sometimes we don’t do a great job of coming together and sharing our knowledge. We tend to exert our energy individually. But together we’re better. This book clearly outlines how to build effective teams and work collaboratively. Many, if not all, educators went into education because they care about their students and their communities. When we’re reminded of the "why" behind the work and combine it with collaboration, the results are powerful.

How does this book help readers overcome barriers to learning?

FEATURED RESOURCE

Don Parker, author

Why should educators read your book? Educators should read Building Bridges because it offers best practices on how administrators and teachers can build relationships with their youth at risk. The book is packed with research, evidence-based strategies, and personal stories on how educators can make meaningful connections with challenging students. In addition, it offers guidance on how to improve school climate, strengthen classroom management, implement a culturally responsive curriculum, and open lines of communication with youth at risk—all of which will help increase student achievement.

How do you define a relationshipbuilding mindset? A relationship-building mindset is having a relentless commitment to building relationships with students, no matter how challenging the task. Building trusting relationships with youth at risk is not easy, and that is why commitment is required. When it is accomplished, it will have a major positive impact that is well worth the investment!

How does your approach to student discipline help educators achieve positive results? My approach to student discipline helps educators achieve positive results because it is rooted in the belief that when teachers and students develop a relationship they value, students will work to improve. When students know that their teacher believes in them and fully supports them, they understand that they are being held accountable and become motivated to reach their potential.

What is one strategy you share for connecting with troubled students? One strategy for connecting with students is to open up to them. Many educators underestimate how much students can learn from their teachers’ personal stories of resilience. When educators use self-disclosure responsibly, students learn that the teacher has overcome challenges to be successful. This will help the students to believe that their situation can get better and that they can rely on their teacher for emotional support.

EXPERT

& QA

Rebecca Stobaugh, author

Why did you write Fifty Strategies to Boost Cognitive Engagement? After I had been researching and training on the topic of critical thinking for several years, teachers requested that I compile my materials into a book. The book’s fifty instructional strategies will help educators create inspired lesson plans and deliver their content in a way that challenges and engages students.

How will this book help educators in their daily work? It is an easy-to-read reference text that can support educators in their daily work and enhance their lessons. The strategies profiled align to higher-level thinking outcomes as well as integrate student movement, classroom discussion, and media to stimulate student engagement. Readers will be able to immediately identify ways they can adjust their instruction to increase critical thinking and student engagement.

What professional development do you offer to support Fifty Strategies to Boost Cognitive Engagement? When working with schools, I often start with developing a common language surrounding thinking. Some teachers misunderstand thinking taxonomies like Bloom’s Taxonomy or Webb’s DOK levels. After establishing common understandings, I model strategies and help teachers plan ways to adapt and implement the strategies in their classrooms. I also work with schools on developing cognitive complex assessments and integrating technology to support engagement and critical thinking.

What does a “thinking culture” in the classroom look like? Which option describes your classroom: teachercentered versus learning-centered, work culture versus learning culture, dispensing content versus probing questions, knowledge versus understanding, student dependence versus independence, focus on grades versus focus on learning process? If you chose the second description in each pair, then you have a thinking classroom.
