Summary
Meaningful Conversations invites the reader to the table for a nine-course meal of how the people who earnestly desire high achievement for all students in all American schools can make it happen. Graciously addressing critical issues in contemporary schools, this book offers Conversation Pieces that describe Success Standards for schools and Conversation Points that specifically address the unique responsibilities of district leaders, school leaders, and teachers. The book goes as far as to provide features such as sections to Think About and Discuss, questions to Ask and Discuss, along with scripts as Conversation Starters. For educators that are ready for change in schools, Meaningful Conversations prepares a table before you to feast upon comprehensive and transformative school improvement--
