  1. 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.

  7. The Innocent Classroom: Dismantling Racial Bias to Support Students of Color

    When children of colour enter their classrooms each year, many often encounter low expectations, disconnection and other barriers to their success. In The innocent classroom, Alexs Pate traces the roots of these disparities to pervasive negative stereotypes, which children are made aware of before they can even walk through the school door. The cumulative weight of the stereotypes eventually takes shape as guilt, which inhibits students’ engagement, learning and relationships, and hurts their prospects for the future.
