Quick Overview

Who else but Jack would compare a team of teachers to a group of
unruly circus lions? He starts with stories of the need for cracking the whip
to tame his prime performers. And with sharp wit, he steps into the centre ring
and shines the spotlight on the practical details of building the consummate teaching
team. You'll laugh and nod your head as you learn how to create a team, nurture
unity and resolve conflicts; quit wasting team time; plan and conduct meetings
where teachers really get something done; set and keep consistent expectations
for students; keep the focus of teamwork squarely where it belongs: on kids,
curriculum and professional development; use his dynamic 3-5-3 action plan for
improving student behaviour; and connect curriculum, instruction and calendar
schedules.

Who else but Jack would compare a team of teachers to a group of unruly circus lions? He starts with downright true stories of the need for cracking the whip to tame his prime performers. And with sharp wit, he steps into the centre ring and shines the spotlight on the practical details of building the consummate teaching team.

Jack brings a unique blend of humour, expertise, experience, surprise and straight talk to share clear strategies for how to tame the team. You’ll laugh, catch your breath and nod your head as you learn how to:

  • create a team, nurture unity and resolve conflicts (yes to making joint decisions, no to devouring dissenters)
  • quit wasting team time; plan and conduct meetings where teachers really get something done (yes to eating snacks, no to correcting work and making phone calls)
  • set and keep consistent expectations for students
  • keep the focus of teamwork squarely where it belongs: on kids, curriculum and professional development
  • use his dynamic 3-5-3 action plan for improving student behaviour
  • connect curriculum, instruction and calendar schedules.

The comical but so-true asides and anecdotes will keep you hungering for the next chapter.
