The Most Successful Leaders Do 15 Things Automatically, Every Day - Forbes

The Most Successful Leaders Do 15 Things Automatically, Every Day - Forbes | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it
Leadership is learned behavior that becomes unconscious and automatic over time. For example, leaders can make several important decisions about an issue in the time it takes others to understand the question.
Sharrock's insight:

Teachers are learning leaders of knowledge workers. As we focus more on facilitation of achieving learning goals and the building of relationships, we develop our skills as transformative leaders. This list is just as useful in the classroom as it is for the building leader and for today leaders in general.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 18, 2013 7:00 PM

I will take it beyond transformative leadership and to servant-leadership. Making others feel safe to speak is part of the servant role. Asking questions suggests a willingness to listen deeply which is both an attribute of mindfulness and servant-leadership.

The Narrative Fallacy

The Narrative Fallacy | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it

Consider your own “side” — political, religious, cultural, whatever. The people and/or the cause with which you most identify. What are the components of the Narrative Fallacy to which you and your side are most susceptible to? That is, which elements of the Story You Use To Explain The World are most likely to mislead you into thinking you understand the world, when in fact they are precisely the elements that keep you from understanding the world as it really is?

The Industrial Revolution: Working Class Poverty or Prosperity? | John Majewski

The Industrial Revolution: Working Class Poverty or Prosperity? | John Majewski | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it

Any sociological costs endured during the industrial revolution must he counterbalanced against the many sociological benefits. For the first time, there was a sense of hope and optimism. The industrial revolution spawned the attitude that progress could be made and problems could be solved. Perhaps it is worth quoting Hartwell at length on this point:

"The new attitude to social problems that emerged with the industrial revolution was that ills should be identified, examined, analyzed, publicized, and remedied, either by voluntary or legislative action. Thus evils that had long existed—child labor, for instance—and had long been accepted as inevitable, were re garded as new ills to be remedied rather than old ills to be endured (Hartwell, 1971, p. 343)."

The Surprising Way African-American Soldiers Were Recruited for World War I

The Surprising Way African-American Soldiers Were Recruited for World War I | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it
As the U.S. prepared to join in on a conflict that had previously been confined largely to the other side of the world, leaders within the African-American community in Harlem petitioned for the U.S. military to start a new regiment within the segregated armed forces so that black Americans could prove their strength and love of country just like their white fellow citizens could. The result was the African-American 15th National Guard — with the caveat that the unit had to raise its own money for equipment and serve under the command of a white officer.

Is It Time To Go Back To Basics With Writing Instruction? | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it
“We weren’t really sure how well it was going to work because we thought it was really low level for high school,” said Loribeth Libretta, an English teacher at John Adams. She’s been using the WIT strategies for five years now and has seen the difference it has made for students. She remembers one shy freshman boy who lacked confidence and most writing skills. Now, he’s a junior in her class and she says it’s a joy to read his well-developed paragraphs that flow together and express high-level thinking. He’s also become much more confident as a learner.

Forgetting These 7 Little Things Makes Every Day More Stressful

Forgetting These 7 Little Things Makes Every Day More Stressful | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it
It never ceases to amaze me when I’m faced with the reality of how easily I lose sight of the truth – I catch myself stressing out over something silly, even though I know better.  And I know I’m not alone in my forgetfulness.  So much happens in our lives – so much chaos and distraction – that we often forget the important things we learned long ago.  Busy days and demanding obligations have a tendency to put our minds on autopilot, making us more reactive and less mindful every step of the way.

Therefore, some of life’s most important lessons need to be reviewed to be remembered.

For the last few years, demographers and political analysts have predicted that the United States is moving inevitably toward a "majority-minority" future, where whites account for no more than half of the population. Analysis from the Brookings Institution explains why they're so sure about it. For the first time ever, half the children under the age of one are not white. Minorities accounted for 92 percent of population growth in the 2000s.

In a cramped office down the hall, four filing cabinets loom over Kim Beck, the school’s special education director. Inside the cabinets, Beck keeps tons of paperwork on all special education students, required by law, showing they are receiving the help they need.

“I try to take most of that paperwork load off of the teachers, so it allows them to teach during the day,” Beck says.

And she does much more. She tests students to see if they need special education services, or if they’re ready to move on. It’s also her job to schedule meetings with parents.
