We are offering Chapter 3 to you as a free download. In Chapter 3 we ask why some schools in “hard neighborhoods”, like High Tech High in California, don’t need metal detectors, or why the RISE program in Los Angeles succeeds with fewer teachers and more counselors.The chapter suggests that a new script for schools is being written where relationships, and social-emotional connections, are the heart of learning.  In the current pandemic environment, the challenges revealed in the book are impacting teachers online and parents-as-teachers at home.

IS YOUR SCHOOL A HABITAT FOR HEROES

Whole Cover.jpg

Many K-12 teachers work under chronic stress. Research shows that a stressed out teacher passes that stress to their students. What happens when a child experiences a stressed adult? It generates fear and they shut down.

 

WHOLE explains what administrators, teachers, parents, and communities can do to lower stress and improve teacher-student engagement.

 

This book is packed with real-life examples, new research, and solutions that you can introduce to your own schools, students, and communities. WHOLE shows us how to move schools from the age of stress and insecurity to an age of true educational flourishing.
