9780807757383: Facilitating for Learning: Tools for Teacher Groups of All Kinds

One of the most important shifts in schools in the last two decades has been the growing emphasis on collaboration among teachers and other educators. Whether you are a teacher facilitating a group for the first time or an experienced facilitator seeking to further develop your skills, this book is for you. Organized to be both an exploration of the role of facilitating and a handbook of strategies, this resource is designed for use in a range of contexts, including faculty and department meetings, professional learning communities, grade-level teams, and inquiry groups. A perfect companion to the authors’ bestseller, The Facilitator’s Book of Questions, Facilitating for Learning extends the scope of that work by examining the facilitator’s responsibilities for supporting a group’s learning during all parts of a meeting, between meetings, and within the larger school context and culture. It is an essential resource for teachers, administrators, coaches, and teacher educators.

Book Features:

  • Contrasts facilitating for learning with other professional development roles, including staff development, coaching, and supervision.
  • Outlines the basic responsibilities and tasks of facilitating teacher learning groups, including “moves” the facilitator might employ.
  • Considers challenges related to school culture and leadership, group interactions, and time constraints.
  • Provides resources to help facilitators develop their skills, including tools and references to other works on facilitation.

David Allen is an assistant professor at the College of Staten Island, City University of New York. Tina Blythe is an adjunct lecturer at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and an international education consultant.

Review:

“I have had the good fortune to watch both David and Tina facilitate learning groups and have learned from the power of their modeling...I am delighted that they have gathered their wisdom here in this volume to share with others eager to embark on the journey and experience the joys of facilitating learning with colleagues.”

―From the Foreword by Ron Ritchhart, senior research associate, Project Zero, Harvard Graduate School of Education



" Facilitating for Learning is a practice-based resource loaded with ideas, strategies, and tools designed to maximize opportunities to promote professional learning, team-based thinking, and collaborative problem solving. This book provides teacher leaders, instructional coaches, principals, and others who engage with teachers a well-curated set of tools and resources designed to promote educators’ engagement in and ownership for purposeful conversations in a variety of school settings. Allen and Blythe's approach to professional learning affirms the importance of establishing a “culture of thinking for teachers," and provides clear guidance on the use of tools needed to successfully engage teachers and others in collaborative learning processes within their schools.

Larry Leverett, executive director, Panasonic Foundation
