Ensure Educational Success: Innovative and Common Sense Strategies to Create a School Culture Where Teachers and Students Thrive
Students are our future—but what if our current methods of instructional leadership are jeopardizing that future?
When students struggle, frustrated teachers tend to assign more homework or extra exam prep to improve grades, but this type of traditional instruction fails to ensure high performance. When teachers struggle, frustrated administrators tend to focus on technical solutions to adaptive problems, but this type of leadership fails to produce quality teachers.
In a world of constant new initiatives and expensive “teach the teachers” courses, educators need to do more to effectively facilitate real connection that inspires learning for their students and results in lasting change for their classrooms.
In Ensure Educational Success, Chief of Schools Dr. Samuel Nix shares a new way of thinking for leaders that will positively impact student achievement and transform your school. A practical approach to comprehensive educational reform, this six-step process will empower your learners, teachers, and yourself to facilitate more successful learning environments.
