Lisbeth Johnson and Leighangela Brady not only make a compelling case for why schools need to change, but they provide a clear and concise framework for how that transformation can be accomplished under the guidance of a motivated leader. Any educator who understands that the preparation of our students for the complex challenges that await them will benefit from this timely resource to ensure that they are doing what's most necessary-placing the levers of learning squarely into the eager and capable hands of their students. -- Dr. John Glaser, Senior partner of Glaser and Associates, Retired Superintendent NAPA Valley Unified School District, K-12
Transforming Ice Age Schools is a practical, accessible, idea-filled guide for leading the kind of change needed to get 'break-through' results for 21st century schools. The metaphor of a glacier-like school culture reinforces the importance of using new strategies and a variety of tools the authors suggest to melt the immobile mindsets that have frozen reform efforts of many school leaders. This book is a call to action for school leaders who are committed to influence the future and deliver a promising new vision of student success. -- Dr. Patricia White, Ed.D, Associate Dean, Doctoral Program in Organizational Leadership, Brandman University
As leaders, we have many resources to help us initiate change, but what is unique about Transforming Ice Age Schools are the resources to recalibrate mindsets. The TCOI and TWP tools are great ways to build thinking frames for principals. The tools act as engines that empower leaders with a collective mindset to keep pushing on the educational glacier in hopes of getting a new transformed landscape. -- Sharmila Kraft, Ed.D., Director Curriculum and Instruction, English Learner Support Vista Unified School District
