Unleashing the Positive Power of Differences: Polarity Thinking in Our Schools (Paperback)

£25.99
Usually despatched within 7-10 days

Synopsis

Author Jane Kise applies the tools of polarity management to four contemporary educational reform debates:







The math wars

Highly effective teachers/teacher evaluation (accountability and teacher development/support)

Deep and wide curricula

Proficiency and student engagement









Chapters based on each of these topics discuss the polarity, following "See it. Map it. Tap it." The "see it" section provides an engaging history of each pole. In "map it", the upsides and downsides of each pole are discussed, including key research and stories from schools or educators who have tried each pole. "Tap it" brings together the ideas from experts on each pole regarding warning signs that the polarity is swinging out of balance as well as action steps to manage it well. The book also guides readers in applying polarity management to their local contexts and includes case studies, group exercises, facilitation instructions, and PD activities.
