Ken Kay and Valerie Greenhill

 

A 7-Steps blueprint for educational leaders to help their schools and districts prepare students for the challenges of the 21st century.

 

In this all-new resource, educational leaders get a 7-Steps guide to moving their schools and districts forward in the quest to prepare students for the challenges of the 21st century. The Leader's Guide to 21st Century Education inspires the leading teaching and learning of critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity and focuses on presenting an implementation-oriented resource for education leaders at all stages of implementation, from early through advanced. The book clearly describes  what to do once a school or district adopts the 4Cs:

 

Step 1: Adopt your vision:  Use the 4C’s and more.

Step 2: Create a community consensus around the 4C’s.

Step 3:  Align your system with the 4C’s.

Step 4: Use the 4C’s to build professional capacity around the 4C’s.

Step 5: Embed the 4C’s into curriculum and assessment.

Step 6: Use the 4C’s to support teachers.

Step 7: Improve and innovate:  Create a 4C’s organization.

   

 

What Educators are saying about The Leader's Guide to 21st Century Education :

 

 "Perhaps the most urgent issue in education today is preparing our children for their future rather than our past. Yet the biggest challenge isn't changing the students -- they're already in the 21st century -- but updating the attitudes of the adults who are in charge. Take a page -- take whole chapters! -- from this book and get started toda y." - Dan Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

 

"Kay and Greenhill have written the most important education book I have read in a long time. The authors have worked with some of the country's best education leaders and so truly understand the change process in schools. The Leader's Guide is a wonderfully practical and resource-rich guide for bringing K-12 teaching and learning into the 21st century. It should be at the very top of every educator and policymaker's 'must-read list.' "

- Tony Wagner, author of The Global Achievement Gap and Creating Innovators 

 

"This is a must-read for all education leaders aspiring to help their students succeed in the 21st Century. Ken Kay and Valerie Greenhill bring forward a compelling case for transformation in our schools and an inspiring message to leaders who are facing a increasingly challenging policy and financial obstacles. More importantly, the book presents meaningful and practical guidance for actions in schools drawn from broad experiences working with developing and implementing 21st Century Education."

- Yong Zhao, Ph. D, Presidential Chair and Associate Dean, University of Oregon, Author of Catching Up or Leading the Way: American Education in the Age of Globalization

 

 

"Ken Kay and Valerie Greenhill have taken on a most valuable challenge – to help schools and districts create concrete steps to a 21st century education system. They accentuate the need to build support from the community and the key education stake holders. They underscore the critical importance of supporting teachers in this work. Their book is a “must read” for any education leader that is working to assure that their school or district is really preparing their students for the challenges of 21st century citizenship and the 21st century workforce."

- Linda Darling Hammond, Charles Ducommun Professor of Education; Co-Director School Redesign Network (SRN), Stanford University
