How do we capture the power of traits like “joy” and “curiosity” in a way that reinvigorates both teaching and learning? Inspiration: Breathing New Life Into Classrooms, provides strategies and examples for bringing these kinds of traits into the classroom.
Our guidebooks are written with teachers in mind. The chapters are concise, so no one will feel overwhelmed when asked to read. Chapters include excerpts from research without being too theoretical, and they anchor themselves in stories from actual classrooms – showcasing how the ideas work in practice. Each chapter includes opportunities for teachers to reflect on and to respond to the content. Our books can also guide professional development – whether conducted in hour long sessions after school (chapter by chapter), or over the course of an entire day. Each title includes a facilitation guide, with ideas for how to structure chunks of your day.
