In life, there are things you cannot change. But one thing you have complete control over is your attitude. Todd Franklin's new book The Solution-Focused Educator gives insight and concrete ways to govern your attitude. By using a personal development model, which Todd created, you will increase your opportunities for greater satisfaction on the job, with your family and your friends. -- Arlene Randall, principal, Fairfax County Public Schools, Virginia
We live in a society where the force of rapid innovation demands a reconceptualization of the purpose and function of public education, and as the role of the teacher evolves to meet this need, the challenge of shifting fixed mindsets looms. Most educators don't disagree with the "what" and "why" of this change, but many struggle to actualize the "how" in light of all that they are expected to do and accomplish. By building on principles of brain and behavioral sciences, author Todd Franklin in The Solution-Focused Educator presents an actionable strategy for negotiating the emotional conflicts that can stifle and suppress. Through several case studies, teachers and those who support them are invited to connect with their array of daily demands through a lens of empowerment, where harnessing emotional responses to stimulants creates the conditions necessary for growth. This text offers a metacognitive routine that, through practice, can lead to the "how" that is necessary for education practices to meet the task of the 21st century. -- Christie Day, educational specialist, Learning Innovations, former middle school teacher, Fairfax County Public Schools, Virginia
