Dramatherapy is increasingly being used in schools and educational establishments as a way of supporting young people’s emotional needs. This book examines the space between drama education and Dramatherapy exploring the questions: Does a therapist teach? When does the role of the drama teacher border on that of therapist? How do these two professions see and understand each other and the roles they play? In Drama Education and Dramatherapy, Clive Holmwood draws on his experience as a Dramatherapist and examines the history of drama education and Dramatherapy, exploring the social, political, therapeutic and artistic influences that have impacted these two professions over the last century. He also discusses how these fields are intrinsically linked and examines the liminal qualities betwixt and between them. The book considers two specific case studies, from the therapist's and teacher's perspectives discussing what happens in the drama class and therapy space including how the dramatic form is understood, explored and expressed both educationally and therapeutically. The ‘them and us’ mentality, which often exists in two different professions that share a common origin is also explored. The book contemplates how teachers and Dramatherapists can work collaboratively in the future, bringing down barriers that exist between them and beginning a working dialogue that will ultimately and holistically support the children and young people they all work with. This book will be of interest to those involved in using drama in an educational or therapeutic context, including: drama teachers, arts therapists, teachers of arts therapy and researchers within wider arts, applied arts and educational faculties within colleges and universities.

Growing up on the West side of Chicago, Ruby Asugha and other girls in the neighborhood faced uncertain futures. Although she and her friends dreamed of going to college, getting good jobs, and being successful, many of them veered off track waylaid by drugs, teen pregnancy, poverty, and crime. Asugha, however, graduated from college, earned two master's degrees, embarked on a successful business career, married happily, and had a family. How and why did she succeed where so many of her friends and neighbors failed? In this book written for African-American girls of middle and junior high school age, Asugha tells her story, pointing out the pitfalls and offering candid advice on how to avoid them. She addresses racism, poverty, loneliness, peer pressure, and feelings of worthlessness. She recognizes young girls' need for love, encourages them to seek out good role models, to rely on faith, and find a purpose for their life.

Look, Listen, Learn, LEAD: A District-Wide Systems Approach to Teaching and Learning in PreK-12 lays out the transformational journey of Hampton City Schools (HCS), an urban school division of 30 schools in southeastern Virginia. Our school district faces numerous challenges, such as 62% of students receiving free and reduced-price lunch and 14% of students holding an IEP, and in 2015-2016, Hampton City Schools’ state accreditation rate was approximately half the statewide rate and on a downward trend. In only three years, that was turned around and HCS exceeded the statewide accreditation rate, a more than 100% improvement with 100% of our schools accredited without conditions. We attribute this in large part to our dedicated educators and their implementation of district-wide systems for curriculum, instruction, checking for student understanding, climate, and culture. The goal of this book is to break down the process of what it takes to bring about large-scale educational change that is sustainable. We describe a process for developing a strong mission and vision to undergird the work around a variety of district-wide systems. This book provides insights into how to improve climate and culture, create a guaranteed and viable written curriculum, establish a process for evaluating its implementation, and create a balanced assessment framework to measure student success. Complete with example templates, action plans, and lessons learned, this book is a true example of theory-into-practice to bring about sustained improvement for all learners.

The Listening Leader fills an urgent gap in the literature on educational leadership. Leadership is second only to teacher quality in its impact on student learning and achievement. Copious research has linked school success with quality leadership, yet districts struggle to train and retain tomorrow's leaders. Across the nation, we have overlooked the educational leader's ability to create a culture of improvement through a simple but easily forgotten skill: listening. Listening is the heart of school transformation--the one skill that allows leaders to connect with diverse stakeholders, gather rich data, and drive reform through the power of relationships. Today's educational leaders must learn to distinguish critical signals coming from their stakeholders from the noise of everyday school life. By inviting readers to cultivate a listening mindset, Safir's book offers a powerful new way of leading. This book speaks to leaders who care deeply and want to make a difference, but who often feel ineffective. Its practical strategies will help readers foster a thriving culture of improvement. The Listening Leader offers districts a framework for leadership development and a strategy to interrupt the churn that plagues them. It will change the conversation about educational data and leadership. Designed to be practical, The Listening Leader is filled with vignettes, self-assessment tools, and concrete strategies that can be put to immediate use. To facilitate extended learning, chapters include reflective questions and discussion points for adaptation in a professional learning community or a study group. Readers will walk away rejuvenated--relieved that there is a better way to lead--and motivated to shift their approach.
