School Culture Rewired
How to Define, Assess, and Transform It
Your school is a lot more than a centre of student learning – it also represents a self-contained culture, with traditions and expectations that reflect its unique mission and demographics. In this groundbreaking book, education experts Steve Gruenert and Todd Whitaker offer tools, strategies and advice for defining, assessing and ultimately transforming your school’s culture into one that is positive, forward-looking and actively working to enrich students’ lives. Drawing from decades of research on organisational cultures and school leadership, the authors provide everything you need to optimise both the culture and climate of your school, including
- “culture-busting” strategies to help teachers adopt positive attitudes, outlooks and behaviours
- a framework for pinpointing the type of culture you have, the type that you want and the actions you need to take to bridge the two
- tips for hiring, training and retaining teachers who will actively work to improve your school’s culture
- instructions on how to create and implement a successful School Culture Rewiring Team.
Though often invisible to the naked eye, a school’s culture influences everything that takes place under its roof. Whether your school is urban or rural, prosperous or struggling, School Culture Rewired is the ultimate guide in making sure that the culture in your school is guided first and foremost by what’s best for your students.
