  1. The Power of Voice in Schools: Listening, Learning, and Leading Together

    For nearly four decades, Russ Quaglia has been laying the groundwork to inform, reform and transform schools through student voice. That deep commitment is reflected in this inspirational book. Quaglia and his coauthors at the Quaglia Institute for School Voice & Aspirations deftly synthesise the thoughts and feelings of hundreds of thousands of stakeholders and offer a vision for schools where everyone’s voice matters. They posit that students, teachers, administrators and parents must work and learn together in ways that promote deep understanding and creativity. Making this collaborative effort successful, however, requires widespread recognition that all stakeholders have something to teach and they all have a role to play in moving the entire school forward.

  2. The Assistant Principal 50: Critical Questions for Meaningful Leadership and Professional Growth

    You’re an assistant principal. Whatever your status - the sole AP in your school, one of two or more APs in your school, career AP, an AP aspiring to the principalship - yours is one of the most misunderstood and underutilised positions in education.

Therefore, you must carefully navigate your way to ensure that you thrive in your role without ‘stepping on the toes’ of your principal. In The assistant principal 50, award-winning, four-time principal Baruti Kafele presents reflective questions that encompass the breadth and depth of the assistant principalship - from finding your leadership ‘lane’ to thriving and being an asset to your principal.

    Human beings have tremendous potential to acquire new knowledge, develop new skills and improve their brains throughout life. By explicitly teaching learners about brain plasticity and malleable intelligence (the idea that they can become functionally smarter through effort) and by modelling and teaching specific learning strategies, teachers can help students experience higher levels of success as they develop a growth mindset. Donna Wilson and Marcus Conyers share strategies and techniques for developing growth mindsets based on their BrainSMART® program for bridging the science of learning to the practice of teaching and elaborate on their seven principles for developing and sustaining growth mindsets.

  11. Leading from the Library: Help Your School Community Thrive in the Digital Age

    In this book, a librarian and an education leader team up to reflect on the librarian’s ability to build connections in two ways.

Then they expand upon these connections by addressing how librarians can lead in the greater educational community by sharing resources and strategies, and partnering with school leaders to tell the story of the school community. This book features connections to the Future Ready Librarians framework; planning templates, checklists and resources to guide change; questions for discussion and challenges to put what you’ve read into action; and examples from the field.
