How to create transformative PD: PARTY!

ROUTINES

Plan: Design intentionally and attend to details

Jenn David-Lang, Editor, THE MAIN IDEA

"In this book, Elena invites educators to level up their ability to humanize learning for adults. These are the key skills we need today if we are serious about reimagining what teaching and learning look like for equity-minded coaches and teacher-leaders who are in charge of professional learning."
Zaretta Hammond, teacher educator and author of Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain

"Today's students need their teachers to be engaged in professional learning that helps these educators develop new relationships to learning and to each other. Aguilar's latest book shares key guideposts, facilitation moves and reflective questions that will help novice and experienced PD leaders alike to change how educators are thinking and feeling about professional learning so that it truly transforms their teaching."
Jill Harrison Berg, Ed.D. Author of Uprooting Instructional Inequity: The Power of Inquiry-Based Professional Learning

Ben Owens, Co-Founder of Open Way Learning

"Elena has created a refreshing blueprint for every leader who is striving to create a healthy and intentional learning organization. If you are a leader searching to create opportunities for deep connection and learning through PD, this book will take you on a transformative journey and push you to design PD that shifts thoughts, feelings, and behaviors of every human in your care. Elena and her team truly "pull the curtain back" on fostering environments for change- her work and her generosity are a true gift to leaders and PD practitioners."
Shawna Wells, CEO of Wells Coaching and Consulting and B is for Black Brilliance

I read this book over the summer, while on vacation. Here I am gladly doing laundry because I could not put it down. What I really loved about the PD book was that I learned the how & the why of planning; not just the what. It helped me understand the dynamics of adult learning as well. I feel so much more confident in planning PDs!
