According to John Dewey, education is not a preparation for life, but is life itself. As a veteran educator committed to public education, Dr. Judith Kronin pens Creating Smart Schools, a book that proposes a model that makes it possible for every student to attain a quality education.
Ron Edmonds spoke in an uncompromising voice, “All children can learn.” Today, Kronin speaks with the same resounding spirit and says, “All educators can teach.” Creating Smart Schools is a book that offers a process for the creation of effective schools through the development and implementation of the Educational Instructional Coaching Model. This model, (EICM), will enable American students to earn top scores on the Programme for International Students Assessment (PISA). EICM evolved from research and a set of core beliefs, which include the following:
- The major goal of educators is to inspire students to become critical thinkers and independent learners.
- Educators must create environments of small learning communities where a major portion of instruction is devoted to problem solving.
- Educators must create lesson plans that inspire students to increase their enjoyment of good questions and help them work out their own understanding of “static” knowledge like mathematics, science, and reading.
- Teachers must design student-directed instructions.
- Educational reform is comprehensive and involves every member of the educational community.
- Instructional coaching, which requires mutual respect between a coach and teacher, is the cornerstone for improving classroom instruction.
Made available through Xlibris, Creating Smart Schools is the guidebook to what every school needs for every student to attain quality education.
