  1. Getting Ahead in the Workplace: Building Stability and Resources for a Better Life at Work and Home, Revised Edition

    For those who struggle to get by every day, actually getting ahead hasn’t been part of your story. Life is unstable and unpredictable. Getting and keeping a good job seems nearly impossible, yet doing so is key to turning your life around. But what if you were able to take control of your future? How would your story change? For employers, the instability of your workforce – especially among low-wage or part-time employees – is more than inconvenient: it’s expensive. But what if your policies and practices helped your people establish control and stability in their lives? How would that affect engagement and turnover – and your bottom line? Getting ahead in the workplace solves these challenges by helping under-resourced people build resources and gain control over their future stories.

  2. Student Learning Communities: A Springboard for Academic and Social-Emotional Development

    Student learning communities (SLCs) are more than just a different way of doing group work. Like the professional learning communities they resemble, SLCs provide students with a structured way to work together to solve problems, share insight and help one another continually develop new skills and expertise. With the right planning and support, this kind of dynamic collaborative learning can thrive everywhere. No more hoping the group work you’re assigning will be good enough. Student learning communities shows you how to equip your students with what they need to learn in a way that is truly collective, makes them smarter together than they would be alone, creates a more positive classroom culture and enables continuous academic and social-emotional growth.

  4. The Instructional Playbook: The Missing Link for Translating Research into Practice

    In schools, every day is ‘game day'. Every day, teachers need the best resources and forms of support because students deserve the best we as educators can offer. An instructional playbook aims to serve as that kind of support: a tool that coaches can use to help teachers match specific learning goals with the right research-based instructional strategies. Coaches have enormous potential to help teachers learn and implement new teaching practices, but coaches will only be effective if they deeply understand the strategies they describe and their explanations are clear. The instructional playbook addresses both issues head on and offers a simple and clear explanation of how to create a playbook uniquely designed to meet teachers’ instructional needs.

By building a system where educational standards and teachers’ personal pedagogical gifts come into harmonious coexistence, teachers are supported and empowered to meet expectations while feeling a deep sense of purpose and passion for their profession. Just as an orchestra needs a score, a conductor and talented players who trust themselves and one another, so too do our schools need gifted teachers with pragmatic standards and the faith of their school communities.
