  3. Forces of Influence: How Educators Can Leverage Relationships to Improve Practice

    In Forces of influence, Fred Ende and Meghan Everette contend that schoolwide success starts with relationships - not only between students and adults but also among all adults up and down the education hierarchy. It’s by leveraging these relationships that educators can influence outcomes and effect real change. But how can educators make sure they exert their influence astutely and sensitively, navigating education’s priorities and pressures while keeping their work focused on the mission? This thought-provoking book helps readers navigate this tricky terrain, introducing four ‘forces’, or levels, of influence and explaining how educators can use them to support one another’s practice and push for positive outcomes for all learners.

  10. All Learning is Social and Emotional: Helping Students Develop Essential Skills for the Classroom and Beyond

    While social and emotional learning (SEL) is most familiar as compartmentalised programs separate from academics, the truth is, all learning is social and emotional. What teachers say, the values we express, the materials and activities we choose, and the skills we prioritise all influence how students think, see themselves, and interact with content and with others. If you teach kids rather than standards, and if you want all kids to get what they need to thrive, the authors offer a solution: a comprehensive, five-part model of SEL that's easy to integrate into everyday content instruction, no matter what subject or year level you teach. Use this book's integrated SEL approach to help your students build essential skills that will serve them in the classroom and throughout their lives.
