The word of education is awash with data – particularly testing results. While I personally have significant reservations about both the use and usefulness of much of this data, due to a combination of the harm it can do to students, teachers, parents and schools as well as the often unsound assumptions upon which it is based, it has to be acknowledged that not everyone shares my views. However, I will put my concerns aside for the moment and share this video explaining the biggest… Continue

John Wooden - the man, his accomplishments, his life, and his legacy - is a gift to teachers trying to help students reach their full potential. By bringing John Wooden into the classroom teachers will have an amazing opportunity to give your students glimpses into the type of character and virtues that need to be present in their lives. For that matter, students can… Continue

Here are some great books to consider reading and/or sharing with your students.
