It's making your own visual teaching tools instead of buying them. It's using your teaching smarts to get the most from those tools. And it's helping kids think strategically so they can be DIY learners. "Teaching tools create an impact on students' learning," write Kate Roberts and Maggie Beattie Roberts. "They help students hold onto our teaching and become changed by the work in the classroom." Of course, you and your students need the right tools for the job, so first Kate and Maggie share four simple, visual tools that you can make.

Relax and enjoy an afternoon's reflection on how to break out of rigid prescriptions and orthodoxies that limit writing instruction . . . . --Tom Newkirk, from the Foreword When was the last time you shook up your writing instruction? Shawna Coppola's new book is built on the premise that our students are ever-changing, and so is our global landscape. There's nothing inherently wrong with relying on instructional strategies that have worked in the past, Shawna challenges writing teachers to revise and renew their professional practice regularly. By looking at whether a practice matches students' needs and interests and examining whether it fits into what we know about children and learning and then adjusting our teaching accordingly, we can nurture students to become critical thinkers, problem solvers, and risk takers in the writing classroom and beyond. Shawna uses a framework of Rethinking, Revising, and Renewing to examine the most pervasive educational practices in writing instruction and to help ask the questions necessary in order to revise those practices so that they are effective for all students. She describes why it's vital to engage in this challenging work and goes on to examine some of the most ubiquitous practices, including what it means to write, the tools used to teach writing, and how writing is assessed. She also offers ideas for how teachers can nurture their own writing lives and thus reinvigorate their instructional practice.

Nach ihren ersten zwei Wochen als neuer CEO von DecisionTech fragte sich Kathryn Petersen angesichts der dortigen Probleme, ob es wirklich richtig gewesen war, den Job anzunehmen. Sie war eigentlich froh ?ber die neue Aufgabe gewesen. Doch hatte sie nicht ahnen k?nnen, dass ihr Team so f?rchterlich dysfunktional war und die Teammitglieder sie vor eine Herausforderung stellen w?rden, die sie niemals zuvor so erlebt hatte ... In "Die 5 Dyfunktionen eines Teams" begibt sich Patrick Lencioni in die faszinierende und komplexe Welt von Teams. In seiner Leadership-Fabel folgt der Leser der Geschichte von Kathryn Petersen, die sich mit der ultimativen F?hrungskrise konfrontiert sieht: die Einigung eines Teams, das sich in einer solchen Unordnung befindet, dass es den Erfolg und das ?berleben des gesamten Unternehmens gef?hrdet. Im Verlauf der Geschichte enth?llt Lencioni die f?nf entscheidenden Dysfunktionen, die oft dazu f?hren, dass Teams scheitern. Er stellt ein Modell und umsetzbare Schritte vor, die zu einem effektiven Team f?hren und die f?nf Dysfunktionen beheben. Diese Dysfunktionen sind: - Fehlendes Vertrauen, - Scheu vor Konflikten, - Fehlendes Engagement, - Scheu vor Verantwortung, - Fehlende Ergebnis-Orientierung. Wie in seinen anderen B?chern hat Patrick Lencioni eine fesselnde Fabel geschrieben, die eine wichtige Botschaft f?r alle enth?lt, die danach streben, au?ergew?hnliche Teamleiter und F?hrungskr?fte zu werden.
