Keeping good teachers by Marge Scherer( )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2,517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What attracts good teachers and keeps them in the profession? What makes schools better places for students to learn and for teachers to work? These questions are at the heart of Keeping Good Teachers. To answer them, many of the authors in this book have surveyed fellow educators to find out which practices and policies are most beneficial and practical to implement in schools.The book is divided into five sections:. Part I explores the extent of the teacher shortage and sets the context for studying it.. Part II concentrates on induction, tackling the issue of how new teachers should be introduced to their profession.. Part III looks at the issues of compensation, performance-based pay, career paths, national certification, and other ways to reward educators and make them feel valued.. Part IV describes the role of principals and administrators in sustaining teachers.. Part V discusses the needs and desires of master teachers. Like its predecessor A Better Beginning: Supporting and Mentoring New Teachers (ASCD 1999), Keeping Good Teachers is dedicated to all those who want to make their profession the best it can be by creating the conditions where good teachers can thrive
Building leadership capacity in schools by Linda Lambert( )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 2,362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Linda Lambert takes a close look at leadership in schools, which today involves far more than a single leader. The author defines leadership as the learning processes among participants in a community -- processes that lead toward a shared sense of purpose. Leadership capacity refers to the breadth of participation in leadership and the depth of skill that teachers, administrators, parents, students, and community members bring to the work. The stories of three schools -- an elementary school with low leadership capacity, a middle school with moderate leadership capacity, and a high school with high leadership capacity-reveal how school people can lead their communities to improve student learning. The stories show five features of effective leadership: (1) broad-based, skillful participation in the work of leadership, (2) inquiry-based use of information to inform decisions and practice, (3) roles and responsibilities that reflect broad involvement and collaboration, (4) reflective practice/innovation as a norm, and (5) high student achievement. This book outlines what schools and districts must do to build leadership capacity, including how to get started, how to sustain the momentum, and how to design school districts capable of supporting such work.

Totally positive teaching : a five-stage approach to energizing students and teachers by Joseph Ciaccio( )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2,298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do you remember that one great teacher who sparked a love of learning in you? It was fun to be in that class and you could tell the teacher enjoyed being there, too. But how do these energized educators stay motivated day in and day out? In Totally Positive Teaching, Joseph Ciaccio shares an approach that transformed him from a burned out veteran teacher struggling joylessly through each day to a professional who has fun with his students, guiding them to success while enjoying the teaching process. The conviction that people can adopt a new attitude is at the heart of Ciaccio s Totally Positive Approach. When teachers enter the classroom with an upbeat attitude supported by constructive teaching techniques, they can build trusting partnerships with students. Ciaccio describes five techniques for creating a daily positive learning experience that nurtures student achievement, devising activities to meet the mutual needs of student and teacher, changing personal counterproductive feelings, responding to student behavior problems, helping underachievers become self motivated, developing instructional strategies to keep students engaged. Ciaccio provides plenty of examples to illustrate how these techniques actually work in the classroom. He also includes dozens of strategies and tips for introducing the Totally Positive Approach and making it take hold in your own work. When teachers use the Totally Positive Approach, students gain confidence, take control of their lives, and feel that they belong. Just as important, teachers enjoy enormous professional and personal growth, seeing with new clarity how their own attitudes and actions help shape the next generation. Totally Positive Teaching is an inspirational guide to approaching each school day with new energy, insight, and satisfaction

Literacy strategies for grades 4-12 : reinforcing the threads of reading by Karen Tankersley( )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2,162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Literacy Strategies for Grades 4 12: Reinforcing the Threads of Reading, Karen Tankersley provides a multiplicity of practical, research-based reading strategies tailored specifically for use with older students. These students may no longer have a reading class as part of the school day, but they are still developing their reading skills and every teacher contributes to that effort. As in her previous book, The Threads of Reading: Strategies for Literacy Development (2003), Tankersley here focuses on the six foundational threads necessary for effective reading phonemic awareness, phonics and decoding, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, and higher-order thinking only this time with a focus on the last four threads, which are especially pertinent to the higher grades. By examining the criteria necessary for success in each thread, she shows how we can better teach struggling readers to develop and expand on content-specific vocabulary; read text accurately, smoothly, and with proper phrasing; extract and construct meaning through reading; critically evaluate, synthesize, analyze, and interpret text. The book includes a broad array of exercises, from individualized 15-minute projects to semester-long whole-class assignments. In addition to addressing the needs of older students, these strategies can be used to help teach English-language learners the rudiments of reading in English. They are easy for teachers to implement, fun for students to do, and most importantly, proven to help students develop the solid skills of reading that are critical to achievement in any subject
