Giving Wings to Children's Dreams free pdf In this powerful collection, the former executive director of the American Association of School Administrators looks at the factors educators must consider in order to turn schools back into places that nurture children. There are basic truths about what motivates people, Paul D. Houston argues, and educators must embed these truths in the educational process. In this book, educators will find inspiration and guidance through: eighteen beautifully written, thought-provoking essays on how we can transform our schools- chapter-by-chapter questions to inspire reflection, discussion, and professional development- and, a broad range of topics spanning from the magic of learning to global education to the perils of accountability. Houston's words will resonate with anyone committed to improving schools, and will help educators examine their own beliefs, develop a common vision, and enact reform.
