EXPERT

& QA

Timothy D. Kanold, author

Why did you write HEART!? I wanted K–16 educators, all of us that 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 their 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 to learn how to find that right balance so that the best of yourself shows up at work and at home.

How does your new 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 hundreds of 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.

Share your vision of a powerful book study focused on HEART! As a school or district team uses HEART! for a book study, I would encourage each educator to journal (using MY Heartprints) before they come together to share their responses. I would also encourage the study to take about a year, meeting about once a month. Don’t go too fast through the 33 chapters. I would also suggest using the DVD videos where appropriate, to hear from other teachers about how various parts of the book connected for them. Finally, I would work through the book, in the order of the chapters, but it is not necessary. You can really dig in anywhere you want!

EXPERT

& QA

Anthony Muhammad, author

You are collaborating on an exciting new book. What is the focus? The focus of our new book, Time for Change, is to explore and offer practical insight and solutions to the most common obstacles that leaders face in creating a healthy school culture. Readers will be introduced to two forms of staff resistance: rational and irrational. Rational resistance is the natural by-product of exposure to bad leadership. Irrational resistance occurs when an educator simply does not want to change, based upon personal preference. We will reveal strategies to overcome both types of dilemmas. After reading the book, both administrators and teachers will be better equipped to engage with other professionals to collectively embrace change in policies, practices, and procedures designed to increase learning for all students.

What inspired you to write this book? We have had the honor of serving educators all over the world as education consultants. After introducing audiences to effective practices, like establishing a strong professional learning community (PLC) or redesigning their school to respond to struggling learners (RTI), the most frequent question asked by educators has been “How do we get our staff to buy in to these practices?” This burning question led us both to collaborate on the need to research and share tools that would allow leaders to tactfully and effectively confront adult resistance.

How does it contribute to the core mission and vision of Transforming School Culture?

Luis F. Cruz, author

healthy school culture, this book will focus on the leadership behaviors that help to transition a school culture from toxic to healthy. This book is essentially an extension of chapter seven of Transforming School Culture, which introduced the reader to the influence of leadership.

What specific challenges will it help educators overcome? The most essential benefit for the reader will be the demystifying of the change process. We understand that educational professionals are sincere, but sincerity alone is not enough to be truly effective. We will provide the evidence that proves that four important leadership behaviors can totally transform a school culture when used properly. There are few things more frustrating than working hard and using the wrong tools. We want to help the reader understand that the masterful implementation of a few highly effective skills is much more beneficial than using a plethora of ineffective strategies. We want the reader to walk away from this text and shout, “I can do this!”

You’re collaborating on an exciting new book. What is the focus?

What specific challenges will it help educators overcome?

Best Practices at Tier 2 is focused on Tier 2 supports for schools and teams. The book is one in a series of RTI at Work™ books designed to help schools and teams become much more focused in their intervention efforts. We are excited to share the research and strategies behind effective Tier 2 supports told through stories, vignettes, and practical strategies intended to help schools and teams become more targeted in their Tier 2 intervention efforts.

We have found that oftentimes, the most wellintentioned efforts of our schools and teams will fail if there is a lack of clarity in the process. For example, if teams are not completely clear on what every student needs to know, their common formative assessment efforts will inevitably begin to unravel, resulting in Tier 2 supports that are not targeted or effective. Whether a team is new to the process or is seasoned and looking to refine their work, this book will help them focus on those foundational elements that are critical in providing Tier 2 supports for all students.

Why this book now? In one word? Clarity! It is our experience that many schools and teams have embraced the belief of ensuring that every student learns at high levels but lack the clarity needed to be truly effective. We have found that schools and teams could benefit from practical strategies in establishing the foundation that is needed in order to build an effective Tier 2 system of supports. In this book, we use the PLC at Work® framework to create the clarity needed to target effective Tier 2 intervention and provide specific strategies, templates, and tools to assist schools and teams in their journey.

How does it contribute to the core mission and vision of RTI at Work™?

As schools focus their efforts on creating the beliefs, behaviors, and systems to ensure that every student learns at high levels, response to intervention (RTI) provides the multi-tiered structure needed to help schools respond to students’ needs through systematic, targeted, and directive intervention supports. This book will provide tools and practical expertise designed to help teams answer the question, “We taught it the best way we knew how and still have a few students who didn’t get it; now what?”

CHALLENGE DEMOGRAPHICS

› 1,100 Students › 55% Free and reduced lunch › 1% Limited English proficient › 18% Special education › 12.3% African American › 5.4% Hispanic › 1.4% Asian/Pacific Islander › <1% Other Clinton High School is located on the Mississippi River in the county seat of Clinton, Iowa.

When Clinton High School administrators decided to attend a Solution Tree conference, they hoped to learn strategies that would help them fight several discouraging trends. The graduation rate was declining as failures were increasing. State assessment results and attendance were both down. Student behavior issues were increasing. Staff efficacy and overall school morale were low and continuing to diminish. The existing structure and culture did not allow staff the time to fully support all students—those in general classes as well as those in honors and AP. Another challenge was eliminating the barrier to honors and AP classes, making those opportunities available to all students. “After hearing Mike Mattos speak, I was very intrigued by his vision but still had many reasons why none of it would really be successful for me in my school,” recalls former principal Karinne Tharaldson-Jones. “I approached him after his session and stated just that. He confirmed my belief by saying this: ‘You are the principal, right?’ He then stated, ‘You are right; it won’t work for you. You are the principal, and you don’t believe it.’”

IMPLEMENTATION “That conversation with Mike Mattos changed everything,” Tharaldson-Jones says. “He was right; I had the power, the resources, and the vision to fix things. If not me, who?” Tharaldson-Jones returned to CHS with her leadership team, determined to focus on the right things that would enable a total and complete school system change: • Student learning • Teacher collaboration • Administrative “laser-like” focus Using the books Pyramid Response to Intervention and Simplifying Response to Intervention (Buffum, Mattos, and Weber) as guides, CHS staff eventually realigned and

IMPLEMENTATION (CONTINUED) implemented an intervention process where data for every student was analyzed by a data team each week. Student indicators now are reviewed each week, and interventions are implemented for all students in all class levels, including AP. Staff are required to update grades each week, and the data team reviews the success of each intervention.

intervention to see if any progress could be made. We had great success after only one trimester. Our failures dropped in half.” After expanding this small effort to other courses, school staff ultimately created a system where students could be successful and achieve at high levels. “In the end I realized the biggest barrier to the success at CHS was me,” Tharaldson-Jones says. “Our staff was good enough, our students were bright enough; the principal just had to be brave enough.”

Tharaldson-Jones and her team started very small and with great focus: one teacher, one course, and one grade level. “We put a study table in place for Algebra 1 during lunch. One teacher was assigned to this lunch

RESULTS Rigorous Course Enrollments

The trends at CHS now tell a very different story. By every indicator, CHS has been successful in improving student performance. Over the course of six years, the total number of course failures in grades 9–12 decreased by 79%. Results also show that students feel supported in their efforts to be successful in the classroom and, in response, are showing up to learn. In just one year, student attendance increased by 3%.

RTI at Work Overview

Simplifying Response to Intervention

This on-site workshop provides a comprehensive overview of the RTI at Work model. You and your team will be introduced to the essential elements needed to create a highly effective, multitiered system of support (MTSS) to ensure all students learn at high levels. This includes how to:

Build effective teams to know when and how to respond to students

Prioritize essential learning outcomes for optimal focus on what students should learn

Target assessments to help identify what they have learned or not

Systematically respond when students need remediation and enrichment

Included Resource: The RTI Toolkit

Learning a successful RTI model begins by asking the right questions to create a fundamentally effective learning environment for every student. RTI is not a series of implementation steps, but rather a way of thinking, including how to:

› Create a focused RTI model that works › Shift to a culture of collective responsibility and build team structures for collaboration

› Develop a system of convergent assessment to identify students for intervention, determine their unique needs, monitor their progress, and adjust learning opportunities based on their progress

EXPERT

& QA

Tom Schimmer, author

Why should educators shift to a standards-based mindset in their assessment practices? Shifting to a standards-based mindset is the first step to long-term grading reform. Standards are not new, but the notion that grades should be based on the achievement of standards still is, in some places. Schools and districts that have traditional reporting practices and procedures can still adopt a standards-based mindset. Developing this mindset allows educators to rethink the mechanics behind how grades are determined, even if the reporting procedures remain more traditional.

How will Standards-Based Learning in Action help educators make practical changes? Standards-Based Learning in Action was written for exactly this purpose. It is full of examples and ideas for implementation to guide teachers, schools, and districts that are making the change to a standards-based system. The book features vignettes and examples from teachers in the field who are actively implementing standards-based learning in various grade levels and content areas.

What will readers find most valuable in this book? With Standards-Based Learning in Action, educators will not only understand the full scope of what standards-based learning looks like in the classroom or at the district level, but they will read about strategies and see tools that can be used immediately in the classroom. No matter where

Garnet Hillman, author

Mandy Stalets, author

someone is in the implementation process, this book will coach the teacher or district forward with practical and real next steps.

How does this book connect to Tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previous book, Grading From the Inside Out? Standards-Based Learning in Action is really part two of the process of grading reform. While there were certainly some practical examples within Grading From the Inside Out, it primarily focused on helping educators understand the difference between the traditional and standards-based mindsets, and how schools and districts could ensure accurate grades while nurturing confident learners. Standards-Based Learning in Action prioritizes putting theory into practice by explicitly showing educators how to create standardsfocused classrooms.

Evidence of Effectiveness RUTLAND HIGH SCHOOL | RUTLAND, VERMONT

CHALLENGE DEMOGRAPHICS › 227 Teachers › 860 Students › 39% Free and reduced lunch › 2% Limited English proficient › 12% Special education › 1% African American › 2% Hispanic › 1% Asian/Pacific Islander › 2% Other Rutland, Vermont, is an urban location serving about 23,000 residents in a very rural state. Although Rutland is a racially homogeneous community, it is home to a very diverse socioeconomic demographic.

Rutland High School served its students well, but the staff wanted to go from good to great. Students received a curriculum that varied from class to class, and the data that resulted from assessments was not used systematically to improve instruction. Although teachers had the best intentions, many of Rutland students’ early standardized test scores were lower than the state average.

IMPLEMENTATION With the support of national assessment expert Cassandra Erkens, the staff made great strides. Teachers soon gained a collective understanding of and commitment to formative and summative assessment systems. Teams established a common guaranteed and viable curriculum, as well as a process that ensured a thorough approach to reviewing student results with a commitment to intervention. Finally, the daily schedule changed to allow for an intervention block during the school day.

RESULTS As the staff worked to improve their collaborative common formative assessment process, student scores improved. The goal of Rutland continues to be to perform at or better than state average, and their scores show they are right on track.

New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) Reading (11th Grade)

Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) 11th Grade—Year 6 Vermont schools switched from NECAP to SBAC in the 6th year of Rutland’s work with Cassandra Erkens.

EXPERT

& QA

Melissa D. Boston, author

What new insights does Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching to Inform Instructional Quality add to your Solution Tree series? This book adds to the MSMT series by providing a frame for reflecting on teachers’ mathematics instruction, specifically by focusing on the quality of instructional tasks, task implementation, and mathematical discussions. While other books in the MSMT series focus on the mathematical content central to each grade band, this book focuses on teaching strategies that can be applied to all mathematical content across grades K–12.

How does the TQE (tasks, questions, evidence) Process help inform instructional quality? In this book, we connect the TQE Process to a set of tools for reflecting on mathematics instruction, entitled the Instructional Quality Assessment (IQA) Mathematics Toolkit. By supporting teachers to attend to tasks, questions, and evidence of students’ thinking through the TQE Process, this book provides a lens for planning and enacting quality mathematics instruction.

What challenges will this book help teachers of mathematics overcome?

Two types of resources sit at the heart of this book: 1) a set of rubrics entitled the Instructional Quality Assessment (IQA) Mathematics Toolkit, and 2) sets of mathematical tasks, students’ work, and classroom videos. Throughout the book, we provide opportunities for collaboration between teachers, coaches, or other instructional leaders as they use the IQA rubrics to deeply examine mathematical tasks, task implementation, teachers’ questions and discourse actions, and students’ responses. We also provide opportunities to extend the activities to reflect on and improve mathematics instruction in classrooms and schools.

Even in classrooms where mathematics instruction is based on rich tasks, research indicates the difficulty of maintaining learners’ engagement in rich mathematical thinking and facilitating rich mathematical discussion during mathematics lessons. This book provides tools and activities for K–12 teachers of mathematics to use the IQA rubrics to analyze and improve the quality of their mathematics instruction.

Why did you write Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching Girls in Grades Kâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;5? It is critical to help promote rich, positive mathematics experiences for girls in their early years of school. We wrote this book to provide a resource for teachers to fully understand the impact they can have on the female students in their classrooms. The book confronts stereotypes and outlines strategies for engaging girls and supporting them as they persevere and problem solve.

How will this book help teachers of mathematics?

Taylar B. Wenzel, author

Kristopher J. Childs, author

Samantha R. Neff, author

What is one unique takeaway from this book? This book allows readers to begin the process of change to improve mathematics learning for girls. The book draws from and extends upon the content of the already-successful Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching series, while offering carefully crafted opportunities for teachers to become more conscious of their own perspectives about teaching mathematics. Educators will not only learn ways to make changes in their instruction to increase the mathematics achievement in their female students, they will also become more aware of their personal perceptions of their own mathematics identity.

This book provides teachers with the tools to ensure girls are provided a high-quality mathematics education. Readers will have concrete opportunities to reflect on how to best meet the needs of all learners, with a focus on considering girls and their learning experiences alongside boys. Through reading the book, teachers will examine their personal beliefs/biases and gain the know-how to establish a classroom where girls can gain a positive mathematics identity.

What tools and rubrics will teachers find in this book? We created classroom videos to support shared discussion and reflection, as well as teacher-friendly, classroom-ready items (e.g., discourse cards, questioning stems, sample word problems, selfassessment questions, letter to teacher, letter to girls, and daily affirmations for learners). Throughout the book, there are spaces for teachers to journal their perceptions about their own mathematical journey and how it has impacted their teaching practices.

Evidence of Effectiveness

CHULA VISTA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DISTRICT | CHULA VISTA, CALIFORNIA

IMPLEMENTATION

DEMOGRAPHICS › › › › › › › ›

Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey worked for three years with site-based instructional leadership teams comprised of the principal and one teacher per grade. Eventually, the professional development extended to all teachers districtwide.

29,642 Students 1,200 Teachers 56% Free and reduced lunch

Participants discovered how to launch student learning by establishing clear learning targets, making learning relevant, anticipating student errors and misconceptions, and incorporating numerous strategies to invite students into learning. They also learned how to consolidate student learning—how to deliver instruction so that students would know how and when to use the information gained.

36% Limited English proficient 11% Special education 6% African American 68% Hispanic 2% Native American/Alaska Native

The largest K–6 district in the state of California, Chula Vista is comprised of 45 schools, including 5 charter schools. Thirty of the 40 noncharter schools receive Title I funding. The district spans suburban and urban areas from downtown San Diego to the border with Tijuana, Mexico, and serves many transborder families.

RESULTS “The results—both qualitative and quantitative—have been amazing,” says Assistant Superintendent for Instructional Services John M. Nelson. Teachers across the system are able to engage in conversations not only about what to teach and assess, but also about how to effectively use instructional practices to ensure quality teaching. Student progress, as measured by the California Standards Test in both ELA and mathematics, doubled over the course of 10 years. During this same period, the Academic Performance Index (API), California’s growth model target, increased over 150 points.

EXPERT

& QA Why did you write this book? A lot of teachers and administrators struggle to find creative, practical solutions to address the real challenges we face each day. With Owning It, I’m on a mission to give educators easy-to-implement strategies that work—in our classrooms, across our campuses, and in our communities—so we can be highly effective and love what we do. You can read any section, get inspired, and see results.

How will Owning It help educators in their work with students? Whether this is your first year or your thirty-first year, every challenge this book addresses is one that I— and the many colleagues I’ve worked with over the years—have faced. And every strategy listed is one I’ve used, refined, and taught to others. From creative ways to connect with all students, to managing our most challenging situations, let’s own the work we do each day!

How will it help educators in their work outside the classroom?

Alex Kajitani, author

What professional development do you offer to support this book? From inspiring keynotes to working hands-on with teachers in their buildings and classrooms, I am deeply passionate about keeping teachers motivated all year long and giving them practical strategies that work. I’ve been honored to work with educators across the country over the past ten years, and I’ll take any opportunity to help educators start “owning it” in their classrooms, at their schools, and throughout their communities.

EXPERT

& QA What inspires or drives your work? The fact that we get to work in a profession where we can foster a love of learning and help students see themselves as capable, successful learners. We are also inspired by strong, intentional leaders and schools that function as PLCs. They create an environment where learning is the focus, work collaboratively to ensure that all students learn, and use student results to make decisions about next steps. It just makes sense, and we have seen firsthand how it makes a difference for students.

What will educators find most valuable in Leading With Intention? Leading With Intention is designed to help educators develop a school or district committed to collaboration. The book dives deep into eight interrelated areas of school leadership, and depending on their current needs, readers can focus on any of the chapters, in any order. Each topic provides the reader an opportunity for reflection, with questions and templates to support learning. Examples are also provided for avoiding common pitfalls and developing strong leadership.

& QA What inspires or drives your work? My passion for teaching drives my work. It has been said, “You have to do what you love and love what you do”—and I love what I do. Supporting teachers around the world and igniting their passion for the profession is my life’s work. I am truly a teacher cheerleader. I want to remind the teachers I am coaching that the real magic in the classroom is not in the new teaching kits or programs, but in their hearts and the dedication they bring to the greatest profession on earth.

All of the strategies in my book are classroomtested and designed to motivate even the most reluctant readers. I have extensive classroom experience as a general educator, special educator, literacy coach, ESL teacher, curriculum director, and staff development coordinator and know that teachers do not want elaborate ideas that require extensive planning or expensive resources to implement. The strategies described in my book are kid-tested, low prep, hands-on, and designed to help all students succeed.

& QA What is the focus of your new book Unlocked? Unlocked: Assessment as the Key to Everyday Creativity in the Classroom explores two important ideas. First, it explores the importance of investing time in creative processes in every classroom at every grade level. Second, it discusses the creative cycle and explores specific assessment strategies that move students from one creative stage to the next, ensuring they deepen their thinking, take risks, and explore their own learning strengths and needs.

Katie White, author

What is one shift educators can make in their assessment practices to unlock creativity? Teachers can invite students into the assessment process. This means they might invite students to set goals, ask questions, formulate criteria, seek and give feedback, reflect on and revise their work, and make and then recover from their mistakes. Creativity is about personal meaning-making and this can only happen when educators delay summative assessment and engage learners in frequent formative assessment processes.

Why did you write this book? Creativity is firmly embedded in both my heart and in my educational practice. It has been my personal mission to invite creativity into all the learning spaces in which I find myself, and I have witnessed the power of this approach to learning. At the same time, I have been on an assessment journey, investigating ways to engage in assessment processes that support hope in learners. I wrote this book because I wanted to share the profound connection that exists between creativity and authentic assessment. In the book, I describe the relationship between them and share actionable ways teachers can nurture both in every single classroom.

How does assessment connect to creativity? Assessment is the process that moves students through four critical stages of the creative process. As students navigate their way through exploration, elaboration, expression, and reflection and response, assessment is essential for decision-making, action planning, and goal setting. Without assessment, creativity can stall and students may not fully realize their creative potential. Formative assessment is the bread-and-butter of creative decision-making for learners and it also guides teachers in their ability to support students as they work within the creative realm.

EXPERT

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

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 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.

EXPERT

& QA

Luis F. Cruz

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?

What are some things people should expect to learn when they attend? There are four core areas of emphasis at Soluciones: (1) instruction and what it should look like for Latino students and ELs; (2) leadership in a world where ELs and Latinos make up the majority of the student population; (3) social-emotional relationships through the lens of this student population; and (4) parent empowerment. We are excited to hold this conference and help educators reach these students. It’s not a mystery anymore— we know exactly what needs to happen in order for these kids and their families to succeed.

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.

EMPOWERING HISPANIC & LATINO

Who should attend Soluciones?

STUDENTS

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.

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 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.

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.

EXPERT

& QA What most inspires your work? I was one of the kids in school who struggled. I had a C average from kindergarten through grade twelve, and I knew I wasn’t stupid. Most of my teachers did not believe in me. Most teachers likely thought I was unmotivated, not very smart, and a big discipline problem. The funny thing was that the few teachers who did believe in me got determined, persistent quality work from me. The two English teachers who built a relationship and coached me to get better at writing were likely the inspiration for me to become an author at age 27.

How does the revised edition of Poor Students, Rich Teaching differ from the best-selling original book? The new edition is more targeted (to help the reader help students more quickly) and broader (to help far more different types of students). The book focuses on what to do right now, so the reader can begin planning for a better tomorrow the day they get the book. It ties in equity, mindsets, and core strategies with strong effects on student learning.

What challenges will this book help educators overcome in districts, schools, and classrooms?

Eric Jensen, author

cognitive capacity, skyrocket student effort, and build better attitudes. When your students have these “big four,” teaching is more fun, there are fewer distractions, and learning goes through the roof.

What is one unique takeaway educators will gain from this book? The core message is that the human brain is designed to adapt to relevant experiences in a caring environment. There are no hopeless students. Our daily lives should focus on hopebuilding. When teachers drop any and all excuses for why a student might not learn— and focus on relevancy, relationships, and rigor— good things happen.
