Change Leader Learning to Do What Matters Most Leadership expert Michael Fullen reveals six core practices for today’s leaders.

E

NEW

MICHAEL FULLAN is a professor emeritus of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto. Recognized as a worldwide authority on organizational change, Fullan is engaged in training, consulting, and evaluating change projects around the world. He is the author of The Six Secrets of Change, Leading in a Culture of Change, and Turnaround Leadership in Higher Education.

In his previous best-selling books, Michael Fullan examined the concepts and processes of change. Now in Change Leader, he turns his focus to the core practices of leadership that are so vital for leading in today’s complex world. He reveals seven core practices, all of which appear to be deceptively simple but actually get to the essence of what differentiates a powerful leader from one who is merely competent: • Practice Drives Theory • Be Resolute • Motivate the Masses • Collaborate to Compete • Learn Confidently • Know Your Impact • Sustain Simplexity. Fullan argues that powerful leaders have built bedrocks of credibility, have learned how to identify the few things that matter most, and know how to leverage their skills in ways that benefit their entire organization. • Provides a much-needed leadership guide for today’s turbulent climate

• Written by an internationally acclaimed authority on organizational change • Includes illustrative examples from business, education, nonprofit, and government sectors. Michael Fullan shows leaders how to eschew policies and strategies that focus on shallow and short-term goals and develop leadership skills for long-term success. G R A D E S K-12

Leading in a Culture of Change

The Six Secrets of Change What the Best Leaders Do to Help Their Organizations Survive and Thrive

“This is a book for all would-be heads of department and deputy heads. Every serving head should buy a copy. I shall buy at least 50 and enjoy giving them away to those at the start of their careers in the confident knowledge that the next generation will be more successful as leaders than the present one.”—Times Education

The keys to success lie within every organization. “‘Fullan has an uncanny ability to produce what is needed at the time it is needed. The six secrets are based in theory, grounded in practice, powerful in their relationship to each other, and described in ways that enable deep understanding. It is a refreshing change from the surface lists of leadership and change ideas that all too often permeate education and business literature.” —Vicki Phillips, director of education, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Supplement

“Fullan articulates clearly the core values and practices of leadership required at all levels of the organization. Using specific examples he convinces us that the key change principles are equally critical for leadership in business and education organizations.”—John Evans, chairman, Torstar Corporation G R A D E S K-12

In a very real sense, every college and university is facing a ‘turnaround’ situation. The old models and the prevailing paradigms are no longer viable.

Inclusive Leadership

Michael Fullan

James Ryan

All too often, educational leaders are called on to reverse bad situations— students who are performing below state standards, teachers who don’t trust management, schools who have lost the confidence of their local communities. In this book, Michael Fullan redefines “turnaround leadership” arguing that turnaround thinking must move from a quickfix to efforts that result in deep and lasting improvement. G R A D E S K-12

An innovative and groundbreaking book about the powerful new idea of inclusive leadership. The culture of schools and the diversity of those who lead them have not kept pace with the growing diversity in the student population. James Ryan’s work focuses on leadership as an intentionally inclusive practice that values all cultures and types of students in a school. G R A D E S K-1 2

Women and Educational Leadership

James P. Spillane

NEW

Margaret Grogan, Charol Shakeshaft

This groundbreaking book shows how the qualities that characterize women’s approaches to leadership differ from traditional approaches—whether the traditional leader is a woman or a man. The and EDUCATIONAL LEADERSHIP authors reveal that women leaders tend to bring an instructional focus to leadership, include spiritual dimensions in their work, and strive for balance between the personal and professional. In addition, women leaders are more collaborative by nature and demonstrate a commitment to social justice. The authors include illustrative examples of leaders who have brought together diverse groups to work toward a common goal.

The most effective leaders ensure that leadership is distributed throughout their organizations. “Distributive Leadership” is a new concept in education. It relates to the ways in which leadership is exercised in everyday practice—through communications and actions, and through others in the school community, such as teachers and parents.

LEADERSHIP & SCHOOL REFORM Linking Leadership to Student Learning

Kenneth Leithwood • Karen Seashore Louis FO REWO RD B Y M IC H A E L K N A P P

Leadership is second only to classroom instruction as the most important influence on student achievement. The well-respected authors, after five years of research, could not find a single documented case of a school that managed to turn around its student achievement trajectory in the absence of talented leadership. This thoroughly researched book examines all types of leaders—from the school principal to the teacher leader. The authors also look closely at each organizational level in the school system—school, classroom, community, district, and state.

Leading School Turnaround examines turnaround leadership and offers leaders tools to guide their schools to higher levels of achievement. The authors present new evidence from a series of studies conducted in the US, Canada, and England. In 2007-2008 there were 1,900 public schools in the US that were “failing”—meaning they hadn’t made their adequate yearly progress (AYP) under NCLB for at least five years. A recent study estimates that the number of schools that miss the AYP mark will more than double to 5,000 schools in 2009-2010. Once given a failing grade, there are five options for these schools: reopen as a charter, replace most of the staff, contract with an outside agency to operate the school, turn the operation of the school over to the state, or engage in restructuring. This last option—to undergo an extreme restructuring—is the best solution; and the biggest component of school ‘turnaround’ is an effective leadership team, which extends beyond the school principal. With this landmark book, you get the tools you need to transform your low-performing school.

ENGAGING STUDENTS The Next Level of WORKING ON THE WORK

Phillip C. Schlechty

“By understanding and implementing the principles so thoughtfully articulated in this book, schools can become centers of highly engaged learners—and in that endeavor find again the joy of teaching and learning.”—Johnny Veselka, executive director, Texas Association of School Administrators

PHILLIP C. SCHLECHTY is founder and CEO of the Schlechty Center for Leadership in School Reform. The Schlechty Center, www.schlechtycenter.org, offers workshops, professional development activities, and tools for schools and school districts, including school boards, superintendents, principals, teachers, and central office staff. Schlechty is also the author of Leading for Learning, Creating Great Schools, Working on the Work, Inventing Better Schools, Shaking Up the Schoolhouse, and Schools for the 21st Century.

In Phillip Schlechty’s best-selling book Working on the Work, he outlined a motivational framework for improving student performance by improving the quality of schools designed for students. Engaging Students offers a next-step resource in which Schlechty incorporates what he’s learned from the field and from the hundreds of workshops he and the Schlechty Center staff have conducted since Working on the Work first was published.

This innovative and practical book is focused on helping teachers become increasingly successful in designing engaging work for their students. Schlechty contends that rather than viewing schools as teaching platforms, schools must be viewed as learning platforms. Rather than seeing schools as knowledge distribution systems, schools must be seen as knowledge work systems. Rather than defining teachers as instructors, teachers must be defined as designers, leaders, and guides to instruction. Engaging Students also includes useful questionnaires that will facilitate discussion, analysis, and action planning at both school and classroom levels. G R A D E S K-12

This book will provide educators with the framework, tools, and processes to transform their schools from bureaucracies into learning organizations. To make this transition, educators must understand and move beyond some of the deeply ingrained and negative conceptions of schooling that guide so much of their practice.

The Daily Disciplines of Leadership

If you are already a coach, or a leader who uses a coaching perspective, then this framework will help sustain the impact of your efforts. If you are a member of an organization that is enduring “initiative fatigue,” then this frame-work will help focus your energy. And if you are a person who has started change efforts, but has not been able to continue them over the long term, then this frame-work will help you gain the insight, endurance, and moral purpose to continue.

This book discusses the basic purpose of leadership, presents four key leadership archetypes, and offers recommendations for action. From accountability systems to personal communications, this book will serve as a bible for novice and veteran leaders alike.

EVOCATIVE COACHING Transforming Schools One Conversation at a Time

Kim Marshall

“Here is the right book at the right time for practitioners, policymakers, and parents from an ex-principal who did in his school exactly what the title says.”—Larry Cuban, professor emeritus of education, Stanford University

Expert Kim Marshall shows how to break away from the typical and often ineffective evaluation approaches in which principals use infrequent classroom visits or rely on standardized test scores to assess a teacher’s performance. Marshall proposes a broader framework for supervision and evaluation that enlists teachers in improving the performance of all students. Emphasizing trust-building and teamwork, Marshall’s innovative, four-part framework shifts the focus from periodically evaluating teaching to continuously analyzing learning. This book offers school principals a guide for implementing Marshall’s framework and shows how to make frequent, informal classroom visits followed by candid feedback to each teacher; work with teacher teams to plan thoughtful curriculum units rather than focusing on individual lessons; get teachers as teams involved in low-stakes analysis of interim assessment results to fine-tune their teaching and help struggling students; and use compact rubrics for summative teacher evaluation.

Foreword by Norman Atkins

Doug Lemov

Teach Like a Champion offers effective teaching techniques to help teachers, especially those in their first few years, become champions in the classroom. These powerful techniques are concrete, specific, and are easy to put into action the very next day. Training activities at the end of each chapter help the reader further their understanding through reflection and application of the ideas to their own practice. Among the techniques: • Technique #1: No Opt Out. How to move students from the blank stare or stubborn shrug to giving the right answer every time. • Technique #35: Do It Again. When students fail to successfully complete a basic task—from entering the classroom quietly to passing papers around—doing it again, doing it right, and doing it perfectly, results in the best consequences.

• Technique #38: No Warnings. If you’re angry with your students, it usually means you should be angry with yourself. This technique shows how to effectively address misbehaviors in your classroom. Includes a DVD of 25 video clips of teachers demonstrating the techniques in the classroom.

The Bee Eater Michelle Rhee Takes on the Nation’s Worst School District Richard Whitmire

THE

Hailed by Oprah as a “warrior woman for our times,” reviled by teachers’ unions as the enemy, Michelle Rhee, outgoing chancellor of Washington, DC, public schools, has become the controversial face of school reform. She has appeared on the cover of RICHARD WHITMIRE Time magazine and is featured as a hero in the documentary Waiting for Superman. This is the story of her journey from good-girl daughter of Korean immigrants to tough-minded political game-changer.

BEE EATER

When Rhee first arrived in Washington, she found a school district that had been so broken for so long that everyone had long since given up. The book provides an inside view of the union battles, the school closings, and contentious community politics that have been the subject of intense public interest and debate—along with a rare look at Rhee’s upbringing and life before DC. The Bee Eater includes an insert with photos from Rhee’s personal and professional life, and an “exit” interview that sheds light on what she’s learned and where the future might take her. RICHARD WHITMIRE is a veteran of education reporting. He is a former editorial writer for USA Today, immediate past-president of the Education Writers Association, and author of the book Why Boys Fail (2010). G R A D E S K-1 2

What’s it like to try and turn around a broken school HIGH SCHOOL without stripping it beyond all recognition? It’s the ALEXANDER RUSSO hardest work in education—deceptively simple at the beginning and increasingly difficult the deeper you get into it. It’s a trickle of halting, incremental successes totally incompatible with Hollywood’s instant results and individual heroes. And at times it seems like everyone, not just the district and the union, wishes for failure. Stray Dogs, Saints, and Saviors tells the real-life story of Locke High School. Originally known for its excellence, Locke High became one of the toughest, most dysfunctional schools in the nation. In 2007 the teachers bravely voted to bring in an upstart charter school organization called Green Dot to try and restore the Locke Saints’ past glory. Working in secrecy, the school principal, a small group of teachers, and Green Dot’s charismatic founder, Steve Barr, convinced Locke teachers to support a petition that would take the school away from the Los Angeles Unified School District. The “new” Locke opened in the fall of 2008. • Offers an in-depth look at a school “turnaround” effort that garnered a blizzard of publicity • Russo’s blog “This Week in Education” was named by the Washington Post as one of its best education blogs of 2010 • Tells the gritty truth about the tough work of true school reform. “Part case study, part gripping documentary....Russo’s engaging chronicle is an essential read for students of education and others interested in school reform and school policy.—Library Journal G R A D E S 9- 1 2

MAKING

THINKING VISIBLE How to Promote Engagement, Understanding, and Independence for All Learners

A proven program for enhancing students’ thinking and comprehension abilities. Visible Thinking is a research-based approach to teaching thinking, begun at Harvard’s Project Zero, that develops students’ thinking dispositions, while at the same time deepening their understanding of the topics they study. Rather than a set of fixed lessons, Visible Thinking is a varied collection of practices, including thinking routines—small sets of questions or a short sequence of steps—as well as the documentation of student thinking. Using this process thinking becomes visible as the students’ different viewpoints are expressed, documented, discussed, and reflected upon. • Helps direct student thinking and structure classroom discussion • Can be applied with students at all grade levels and in all content areas • Includes easy-to-implement classroom strategies

“When thinking is made visible, learning is inevitable. Making Thinking Visible invites the reader to craft a new definition of education and presents a dramatic leap forward for education.”—Adam Scher, school principal, Bloomfield Hills Schools, Michigan Includes a DVD featuring Visible Thinking in practice in different classrooms.

The Highly Effective Teacher’s Guide to Closing the Achievement Gap Teach For America, Steven Farr

“Teaching As Leadership works. This is the approach taken by teachers who lead diverse students to great academic achievements.”—Beverly Hall, superintendent of Atlanta Public Schools and 2009 National Superintendent of the Year

Teach For America has fought the daunting battle of educational equity for the last 20 years. Based on evidence from classrooms across the country, they’ve discovered much about effective teaching practice, and distilled these findings into the six principles presented in this book. The Teaching As Leadership framework inspires teachers to: • Set Big Goals • Invest in Students and Their Families • Plan Purposefully • Execute Effectively • Continuously Increase Effectiveness • Work Relentlessly. The results are better educational outcomes for our nation’s children, particularly those who live in low-income communities. TEACH FOR AMERICA is a prestigious and highly regarded non-profit organization that builds a teacher corps for jobs in our nation’s neediest

schools. They recruit recent college graduates and professionals, of all academic majors, who commit two years to teach in urban and rural public schools. An accompanying Website includes a wealth of tools, videos, sample lessons, discussion boards, and case studies (teachforamerica.org).

In this practical field book, readers will find a “toolkit” developed by The Education Trust. The tools in the kit help school leaders and teachers examine the current high school experience, and then develop a detailed action plan to transform curriculum so that their students are ready for college and work.

Clayton M. Christensen, Henry J. Eyring

“This superbly documented book is a must read for anyone who cares about America’s universities and colleges and the invaluable role they play in our contemporary society. Henry Eyring and Clayton Christensen remind us of higher education’s history and thoughtfully examine the critical strands of its DNA that require re-engineering to insure survival and good health for our richly diverse system. Perhaps the best feature of this volume is that it goes beyond analysis to offer what is possible through models that are scalable, transferable, and responsive to the needs of learning, discovery, and engagement.”—Molly Corbett Broad, president, American Council on Education

Written by Clayton Christensen, the father of the theory of disruptive innovation, and his colleague, Henry J. Eyring, The Innovative University explores how and why universities must change to ensure future success. The authors show how higher education can respond to the forces of disruptive innovation, and it offers a nuanced and hopeful analysis of where the traditional university and its traditions have come from and how it needs to change for the future. Through an examination of Harvard and BYU-Idaho as well as other stories of innovation in higher education, the authors decipher how universities can find innovative, less costly ways of performing their uniquely valuable functions.

She shows that culturally relevant teaching is not a matter of race, gender, or teaching style.What matters most is a teacher’s efforts to work with the unique strengths a child brings to the classroom.

Change the flawed system that traps gifted children in misdiagnosis and misunderstanding. Explores the link between giftedness, autism, and ADHD, and recommends changes to the flawed systems that trap these gifted children in misdiagnosis and misunderstanding. Children known as “Twice Exceptional” (or “2e”) are kids who are gifted and who have a physical or mental impairment. Often a child’s disability masks his giftedness, causing educators and other adults to focus on his weaknesses rather than developing his talents. In other cases, a child’s giftedness can mask her disability, meaning she won’t receive the special education services that could help her manage and possibly overcome her disability. This book is a call to action for parents and educators to rally for changes to the educational and mental health systems that keep these children trapped. G R A D E S K-12

Here’s an easy-to-follow program for parents and educators to teach kids with special needs the hidden rules of social behavior. Unlike other social skills programs, this acclaimed approach teaches children to see themselves as others do—covering everything from body language and being a good listener to dealing with teasing—demonstrating clearly what kids need to do to “fit in.” Designed to be used with children aged 8 through 13, Socially ADDept deciphers the complex rules of nonverbal language into friendly, bite-sized morsels that kids can understand and addresses the most common social errors made by children with special needs. The author breaks the social skills training into 10 lessons that can be taught as sequential building blocks and help children: understand friendships, become good listeners, use conversational skills, understand the importance of body language, understand tone of voice, recognize friendly behavior, join a group or an ongoing activity, deal with teasing, manage anger, and understand cell phone etiquette and the rules of cyberspace. “Socially ADDept is a wonderful resource for both parents and teachers working with students with attention challenges.

Often educators find the RTI process too complicated to put into practice. The “solution-focused” method generates less work to implement and emphasizes a student’s strengths rather than his or her weaknesses. Solution-Focused RTI shows how to identify exceptions to students’ learning problems and design personalized interventions to help those students succeed.

E

NEW

Forty-three states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands have signed on to adopt the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The need for curriculum guides to assist teachers in helping students meet these standards has become imperative. Created by teachers, for teachers, the research-based curriculum maps in this book present a comprehensive, coherent sequence of thematic units and sample lessons for teaching the skills outlined in the CCSS for English language arts in grades K-5, 6-8, and 9-12. Teachers can use the maps to plan their year and craft their own more detailed lesson plans. • Each grade is broken down into six units that include focus standards, suggested works, sample activities and assessments, lesson plans, and more • The maps address every standard in the CCSS, yet are flexible and adaptable to accommodate diverse teaching styles. Any teacher, school, or district that chooses to follow the Common Core maps can be confident that they are adhering to the standards. The books will also include sample assessment rubrics, examples of student work, and helpful graphic organizers. For more information, visit their website: commoncore.org.

To improve education in America, they promote programs, policies, and initiatives at the local, state, and federal levels that provide students with challenging, rigorous instruction in the full range of liberal arts and sciences. They also undertake research and projects, such as the Common Core Curriculum Mapping Project, which aim to provide educators with tools that will help students to become strong readers and learners.

Joyful Reading Differentiation and Enrichment for Successful Literacy Learning Sally M. Reis

A schoolwide enrichment model for teaching reading. Discover a reading program with proven effectiveness in improving motivation and engagement as well as achievement for a wide range of learners. This system focuses on high interest literature, choice, and critical thinking practices that result in students eager to read. This book offers teachers a promising alternative to scripted reading programs. Introducing the Schoolwide Enrichment Model for Reading (SEM-R), a model that has been tested in high poverty urban schools as well as in affluent suburban schools, the book shows teachers how to implement a differentiated reading program that works well with all students, high achievers and low achievers alike. Students are encouraged to read independently for a period of time each day while the teacher conferences with students individually. Based on the premise that students do better when given a choice in what they read, the SEM-R program places high importance on matching individual students with appropriately challenging texts along with opportunities to engage in high-level thinking and inquiry activities related to their readings. The program enables students to become more motivated and excited about reading, to develop the capacity for reading progressively challenging texts, and ultimately to perform better in reading fluency and comprehension on standardized tests. A DVD of classroom examples is also included. G R A D E S K-8

Tests and other evaluative devices are aligned with Common Core State Standards and state frameworks. • Offers a proven model for monitoring and assessing students • Assessments and instructional strategies are easy to implement as part of any curriculum • Practical strategies are modeled on a tested approach for helping students work through their problem areas. The dynamic assessments included in the book provide essential information for planning instruction and satisfy the basic purpose of RTI. Assessments are linked to specific instructional and intervention strategies. The five areas covered by the assessments are those advocated by the National Reading Panel: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. THOMAS G.

Reading Pathways Simple Exercises to Improve Reading Fluency Fifth Edition

A unique, highly effective approach to teaching reading, phonics, and vocabulary. “For reading exercises, I recommend Reading Pathways. One of my daughters has had an extra struggle with reading, and the book has helped make a noticeable improvement for her. The short stories it includes are so fun and silly that it makes the daily lessons something to look forward to.”— Jenefer Igarashi, senior editor, The Old Schoolhouse magazine

This proven successful method for improving fluency features reading pyramids that start with one word and gradually build into short phrases and then into complete sentences of increasing complexity. Also included are mini-pyramid exercises where two words build by syllables into multisyllable words, which are then used in a sentence. The exercises in this book help beginning readers increase eye span, strengthen eye tracking, build vocabulary, and develop ease and fluency in reading. Progressively building up the amount of text per line removes the fear and mystique of multisyllable words, and helps students build the strong vocabulary so critical for success in reading and writing.
