Student Voice, by Russ Quaglia
Using examples from student surveys, focus groups, and more, this groundbreaking book presents a blueprint for a successful educator-student partnership. Learn how to ask the right questions (and understand the answers), engage students in decision-making and improvement-related processes, and implement the Aspirations Framework to guide students toward their full potential.
"In this magnificent book, Quaglia and Corso have unearthed a deep missing piece in learning. The elephant in the room, ironically turns out to be Student Voice! And now we have it-their aspirations, the 8 conditions of deep learning relating to self-worth, engagement, and purpose. Thanks to the authors we have a whole new set of strategies where change, learning, educators and students merge.This is innovation at its best."

Collaborative Leadership, by Peter DeWitt
Framed through John Hattie’s research, this book paints a powerful scheme for collaborative leadership: meet stakeholders where they are, motivate stakeholders to strive for improvement, model how to do it. The blueprint will give you the ammunition you need to fuel collaborative leadership in your school.
"It is time we realized that the top-down model of leadership often guarantees failure in professional communities. Peter DeWitt offers us a way forward with a revolutionary new approach to leadership that recognizes that everyone’s brain is required for complex change—not just the brain of the “leader.” If you want to have an impact, you should study this book and put these ideas into practice as soon as you can."
