Coherent School Leadership
Coherent School Leadership
Coherent School Leadership
Forging Clarity from Complexity

Michael Fullan, Lyle Kirtman

While leaders may desire or have been told that they must put certain structures into place in order to enhance their leadership capabilities, they may not know exactly what structures are needed, or the skills that are required for implementation. Authors Michael Fullan and Lyle Kirtman go beyond simply telling you what you need to put in place to enhance leadership--they detail the route to successful leadership.

Coherent School Leadership will show you how to combine the components of Fullan's Coherence Framework (the Framework) with Kirtman's 7 Competencies for Highly Effective Leaders (the Competencies) to drive coherence--the shared depth of understanding about the nature of the work and how it impacts the results desired for student achievement--to change the culture in schools from reactive to proactive. Fullan and Kirtman, whose work is based in practice, will:

- Show you how to use specific competencies to drive coherence
- Provide examples that show how other leaders have successfully created coherence
- Guide you through the day-to-day distractions/stresses so that you can stay on course
- Show you how to use the Competencies in relation to the Framework

Taking a world view of the forces that could destabilize education and the work of coherence, Coherent School Leadership will show how proven frameworks such as the Framework and the Competencies can help you cope with even the most complex scenarios.

Engage the World Change the World

Deep Learning has claimed the attention of educators and policymakers around the world. This book not only defines what deep learning is, but takes up the question of how to mobilize complex, whole-system change and transform learning for all students.

Deep Learning is a global partnership that works to: transform the role of teachers to that of activators who design experiences that build global competencies using real-life problem solving; and supports schools, districts, and systems to shift practice and how to measure learning in authentic ways. This comprehensive strategy incorporates practical tools and processes to engage students, educators, and families in new partnerships and drive deep learning.

Woo's Wonderful World of Maths
Woo's Wonderful World of Maths
Woo's Wonderful World of Maths

Eddie Woo
Why is a rainbow curved? Why aren't left-handers extinct? How is a sunflower like a synchronised swimmer? Why is 'e' a magic number?

The answer to these questions is contained within one simple word: MATHS. Because maths is all about patterns, and our universe is extraordinarily patterned.

With enthusiasm, humour and heart, Eddie Woo shows how card tricks, conspiracy theories, teacups, killer butterflies, music, lightning and so much more illuminate the spellbinding world of maths that surrounds us.
