Why it’s essential that everyone in the school community be both a teacher and learner

IMG_1365

Each week this summer I’m introducing a blog theme that connects popular and important posts from recent years. Each theme offers a number of perspectives on a perennial challenge of school leadership.

This week’s topic is “teaching.”

In learning-oriented school cultures, everyone is viewed as both a teacher and a learner. In such cultures, hierarchic distinctions between student, teacher, and administrator are minimized as the school community focuses on the continuous improvement of teaching, learning, and relationships. In that sense, the study of teaching is also the study of learning and of leadership.

I encourage you to scroll through articles in this thread to find those that match your interests.

In addition, I encourage you to take a closer look at these essays:

6 non-negotiables that I would want to see at the beginning of of a teacher’s career

“The power and uses of checklists for teachers and administrators”

“Improved teacher evaluation may be necessary, but it’s far from sufficient”
