Accountability and Culture of School Teachers and Principals:
An Eight-country Comparative Study

Author: Theo Wubbels, Zehava Rosenblatt

Accountability and Culture of School Teachers and Principals studies the degree to which teachers and principals in eight countries view themselves as taking responsibility, working by clear standards, reporting transparently, and accepting feedback at work.

The book focuses on cultural values that explain variation in accountability levels of school educators, drawing on data from Canada, China, Hungary, Israel, the Netherlands, Spain, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. It addresses the question of whether cultural values, specifically collectivism and individualism, are related to teachers’ and principals’ external and internal accountability dispositions. It also explores the intriguing role of organizational support and key school personnel in school reforms across the world, providing a new way to understand school accountability.

The book will be of great interest for academics, post-graduate students, and scholars in the field of education policy and international and comparative studies in education.

Lee Crockett’s highly-anticipated new book Agents to Agency: A measurable process for cultivating self-directed learner agency follows on from his best-selling book Future-Focused Learning: 10 essential shifts of everyday practice. The transformation of classroom practice and moving the responsibility for learning from the teacher to the learner is examined in greater detail with an emphasis on the specific learning practices that successfully underpin the transition.

Cultures of Thinking in Action: 10 Mindsets to Transform our Teaching and Students' Learning

Release Date: 12th June 2023

Author: Ron Ritchhart

From leading educational researcher Ron Ritchhart, a deep dive that illuminates what the foundational mindsets needed to create cultures of thinking really looks like in action.

Building on the framework presented in the best-selling Creating Cultures of Thinking, Ron Ritchhart’s new book, Cultures of Thinking in Action, takes the next step in helping readers not only understand how a culture of thinking looks and feels, but also how to create it for themselves and their learners. Arguing that no set of practices or techniques alone is sufficient to create a culture of thinking in and of itself, Ritchhart explores the underlying beliefs that motivate the creation of cultures of thinking, presenting key mindsets every educator and leader needs to embrace if they are serious about creating powerful thinkers and learners.

Much more than just an instructional guide, Cultures of Thinking in Action offers readers a reflective journey into their own teaching, leading, and parentingwhile providing the foundation and concrete strategies needed to create and develop a culture of thinking for all learners.

This book:
* Presents ten foundational mindsets of a culture of thinking
* Includes the latest research of the Cultures of Thinking Project
* Includes questions, exercises, and discussion prompts to inspire reflection by individuals and teams
* Provides case studies and best practice scenarios to exemplify each mindset
* Provides useful data collection tools to inform one’s teaching practice

Release Date: 7th March 2023

Author: Jeffrey D. Wilhelm, Michael W. Smith, Hugh Kesson, Deborah Appleman

Fake news, false and distorted news material; is nothing new. It's been a part of media history long before the advent of social media. But with the speed and reach that powerful digital technology and social media provide, information pollution has spread like wildfire in our rapidly changing world.

Now more than ever, students need to develop their critical reading and thinking skills. This extensively researched book will provide educators in all subject areas and grade levels, the tools and lessons to:

help learners become highly competent critical readers of all kinds of texts, and critical consumers of data
help students recognize, interrogate, and responsibly deal with fake news, the New Propaganda or information pollution
help learners understand how these kinds of mis-, dis- and mal-information work and how they are powerfully tailored, curated, and disseminated to them in highly targeted and manipulative ways by artificial intelligence (AI) and social media
help learners understand how these kinds of mis-, dis- and mal-information work and how they are powerfully tailored, curated, and disseminated to them in highly targeted and manipulative ways by artificial intelligence (AI) and social media
and help to recognize and fight ungrounded skepticism: the ignorance or dismissal of established, credible data from across reliable sources, including the pretense that science does not exist or that established scientific findings can be roundly discounted.

How Scaffolding Works: A Playbook for Supporting and Releasing Responsibility to Students

Release Date: 28th February 2023

Author: Nancy Frey, Douglas Fisher, John T. Almarode

Provide the perfect structure and support to develop student independence.

Effective scaffolding leads to learner autonomy-but too many educators have been airlifting students to right answers, perpetuating a generation who don't know how to learn. Yes, we know the sweet spot for learning involves giving our students the right blend of productive failure and productive success, but how to do it is cloaked in misconceptions.

How Scaffolding Works unveils the essential moves and methods. Ten interactive modules help every K-12 educator structure support in new ways, including knowing how to:

Gradually release responsibility to students through intentional and purposeful scaffolding
Design lessons and experiences that attend to the affective, metacognitive, and cognitive aspects of learning
Collect data before, during, and after learning, so we can place, move, and take away scaffolds with greater intention
Promote independence with front-end scaffolds, distributed scaffolds, back-end scaffolds, peer scaffolds, and fading scaffolds
Use a blend of demonstration, modeling, coaching, explaining, questioning and choice
Promote purposeful practice-in which learners knows where they're going and how to get there
Perhaps we rush in to rescue learners because the world seems fraught; we want to help our students reach the safety of academic success. Our intentions are good, but it's time to step back, gradually and purposefully, and let them pilot their own learning.
