  5. Patterns of Power: Inviting Adolescent Writers into the Conventions of Language, Grades 6–8

    ‘Is this right? Is this how it’s supposed to look?’ Adolescent writers often ask these kinds of questions because traditional grammar instruction focuses too much on what’s right or what’s wrong. The fear of making a mistake hides the true power of conventions – the creation of meaning, purpose and effect, the ultimate reading-writing connection. Join Jeff Anderson, with Travis Leech and Melinda Clark, as they explore grammar in a new way in Patterns of power: Inviting adolescent writers into the conventions of language, Grades 6–8. Let’s lift middle school writers by focusing on possibilities for producing effective writing that will transfer to the classroom and beyond.

  7. The PD Curator: How to Design Peer-to-Peer Professional Learning That Elevates Teachers and Teaching

    In this book, Lauren Porosoff explains how PD curators: structure teachers’ schedules to make time for in-house professional learning; select content and create a process for how people interact with it; fit the often disparate pieces together into a meaningful whole; and discover whether the event has been successful. The practical tools and protocols in each chapter will help you plan professional learning that taps into the expertise and interests of a diverse staff. Canned sessions that don’t connect with teachers’ actual needs will be a thing of the past. Instead, you’ll discover ways to support teachers in sharing ideas and trying out new practices that advance student learning. In doing so, you’ll empower teachers and students alike.
