Black Friday: These Teacher Gifts Are Better Than A Dollar Store Mug

The holidays are upon us so I thought I'd publish the ultimate gift guide for teachers and educators.  Because let's face it ... a person can only use so many Dollar Store coffee mugs.


Visible Learning for Teachers by John Hattie

 From Amazon:

In November 2008, John Hattie’s ground-breaking book Visible Learning synthesised the results of more than fifteen years research involving millions of students and represented the biggest ever collection of evidence-based research into what actually works in schools to improve learning. 
Visible Learning for Teachers takes the next step and brings those ground breaking concepts to a completely new audience. Written for students, pre-service and in-service teachers, it explains how to apply the principles of Visible Learning to any classroom anywhere in the world. The author offers concise and user-friendly summaries of the most successful interventions and offers practical step-by-step guidance to the successful implementation of visible learning and visible teaching in the classroom.

Leader of Learning by Marzano and DuFour

 From Amazon:
For many years, the authors have been fellow travelers on the journey to help educators improve their schools. Their first coauthored book focuses on district leadership, principal leadership, and team leadership, and addresses how individual teachers can be most effective in leading students—by learning with colleagues how to implement the most promising pedagogy in their classrooms. 

Exploring Differentiated Instruction - PLC Series by Cindy Strickland

From Amazon:

Exploring Differentiated Instruction is your guide to creating a PLC to help further your understanding of how to use differentiated instruction in your school or classroom. You ll find everything you need to organize and run your PLC, including sample agendas, schedules, and the background reading for each of ten sessions. You ll get the chance to try out new techniques and to collaborate with your colleagues as you deepen your understanding of differentiated instruction. 

Change Leadership: A Practical Guide to Transforming Our Schools by Wagner 

From Amazon:

The Change Leadership Group at the Harvard School of Education has, through its work with educators, developed a thoughtful approach to the transformation of schools in the face of increasing demands for accountability. This book brings the work of the Change Leadership Group to a broader audience, providing a framework to analyze the work of school change and exercises that guide educators through the development of their practice as agents of change. It exemplifies a new and powerful approach to leadership in schools.
