The Limitless School: Creative Ways to Solve the Culture Cube
You know what's hard? Solving a Rubik's(R) Cube.
You know what's harder? Solving your school's culture puzzle.
Everyone has a school story to tell. As experienced educators, authors Abe Hege and Adam Dovico have heard many of those stories. Unsurprisingly, the tales often revolve around culture: the life-changing relationship formed with a teacher, the harmful effects of bullying, the amazing Friday night crowds at the football game, and so on. Culture is the invisible yet omnipresent and driving force that shapes learning experiences, the community's perceptions, and students' memories--which is why being intentional about creating a positive culture is imperative for your school's success.
The Limitless School identifies the nine pillars that support a positive school culture and explains how each stakeholder--teachers, administrators, students, families, the community, and board members--has a vital role to play in the work of making schools safe, inviting, and dynamic. Unlock the secrets to unlimited possibilities, and start building your Limitless School today!
