Over the long weekend, I read Dylan Wiliam’s “Leadership for Teacher Learning. In order to remember what I read and formulate my thoughts, I make #booksnaps, using piccollage or snapchat. This post contains my key take-aways.
I also recommend that you listen to Ollie Lovell’s podcast in which he interviews Wiliam himself, it is a fantastic listen and it’s great to hear so many of the things that stood out for me while reading reflected back in the interview. Another good one to read is a post I wrote back in 2015, when Dylan Wiliam visited our school. I took detailed notes, there are photos of the slides and I made a simple resolution for myself which I have since party fulfilled (before class, prepare thoughtful and critical questions to ask students).
Below are the notes I took in booksnap form. You can download them all here in a PDF format.
Here is a summary of the book “Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard, by Chip Heath and Dan Heath”
