The Best of the Marshall Memo, Book One:
Ideas and Action Steps to Energize Leadership, Teaching, and Learning
I’m excited to share that the book I’ve been working on with Kim Marshall is out!
Kim and I chose 11 crucial “must know” education topics every busy school leader should know about. Then we combed through more than 8,000 article summaries in the Marshall Memo archive and compiled a “best of” collection for these 11 topics.
Next, for each topic, we created accompanying professional learning suggestions to help school leaders put their new ideas into action. This is a welcome resource for school leaders who don’t have the time to forage for school-improvement ideas while tackling the day-to-day challenges of effectively running their schools.
