35 Tales To Promote Reflection And Discussion In Schools
de James Dillon
Sobre o livro
This book offers a selection of stories about teaching, learning, and school life that you can use in a variety of PD formats and settings. Grouped into four categories-students, teachers, administrators, and parents-these tales offer a powerful entry point for thinking and reflecting on your school environment in a new and meaningful way. Each brief tale is presented to spark a 10-15 minute group discussion that will help educators think more deeply about the complex, human problems they confront on a daily basis. Suggested questions and a brief commentary following each tale can be used to explore the issues embedded in the tale and, thereby, empower staff to generate creative responses to them. Ditch your "e;sit and get"e; professional development and "e;tap into the wisdom of the ages"e; by using these powerful tales to give educators the gift of time to think and talk about what it really means to educate hearts and minds.
