The Who Took My Chalk?TM  Model is powerful for making teachers want to embrace change and gives clear steps for establishing the kind of environment they want to have in their classroom and school…I would recommend [this book] for its strong overview of the 21st century collaborative teaching model and for clearly laying out a model to make change happen on a personal or school-wide level.

 I appreciated the relevancy of current trends.  As a technology professional development leader in my district and region, I found it reassuring that the same ideas I cover in my sessions were discussed in this book.

Book Description Pearson, 2011. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Very readable and appropriate for k-12 teachers. The tone and presentation was good and the material was conducive for k-12 educators. I liked the content of the book; it appeared to be relevant and up to date with discussions I have had with colleagues in trainings I have conducted and conferences I have attended. I would definitely recommend this book to my teachers in my district. I appreciated the relevancy of current trends. As a technology professional development leader in my district and region, I found it reassuring that the same ideas I cover in my sessions were discussed in this book. - Allen Martin, District Technology Resource Teacher, Bowling Green City Schools, Bowling Green, KY The curriculum coaches at each school should read this book and plan PLCs (Professional Learning Centers) with their teachers. I also think that principals should read this book and discuss it at their principals meetings. These definitions should spark a lot of conversation at a faculty meeting or PLC. I can see a teacher taking this book and reading it and applying the information by herself. She doesnt need a group setting. Although this book would several teachers can come together to study the book at chapter at a time. I like the authors tone. It was like she was one of the teachers at a school discussing 21stcentury skills with some other teachers in the lounge. The overall strength of this book is that it is written in a way so that it is easy to use alone or with a group. Who Took My Chalk? would be great to use with a Professional Learning Community (PLC). - Jo Ann Brandenburg, Teacher, Hatcher Elementary, Ashland, KY I thought the checklist for 21st century skills was excellent and found myself going through it with regard to my own teaching and classroom. LOVE the SMART Goals.look forward to implementing in my own life and classroom. LOVE the response styles and what AILS you.perfect for teachers to grasp and run with. I know I saw myself and colleagues in each description and appreciate the chance to understand my motivations and limitations a little better. The Who Took My Chalk Model is powerful for making teachers want to embrace change and giving clear steps for establishing the kind of environment they want to have in their classroom and school. I would recommend Who Took My Chalk? for its strong overview of the 21st century collaborative teaching model and for clearly laying out a model to make change happen on a personal or school-wide level. This book is an excellent resource for teachers and I it caused me to reflect and think about my own teaching practices. To me, that is the mark of a good resource! - Nancy Goodnight, AIG Facilitator/Teacher, Enochville Elementary School, China Grove, NC. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0132563576
