'Brain Pete and Robin Fogarty's "From Staff Room to Classroom II" shows again their obvious expertise and familiarity with what works for campus planning and training. It truly gives new meaning to the words 'staff development' and provides a clear, concise manner to make it happen. The multiple strategies and methods accommodate all styles of presentation, regardless of content area or years of experience. This will revamp how we do training in our district' - Amber Teamann, Title I Technology Facilitator, Garland ISD, TX. Through their extensive experience conducting professional development sessions with educators nationally and internationally, Brian M. Pete and Robin J. Fogarty have acquired a vast compendium of effective presentation and facilitation strategies. Now, in their companion to "From Staff Room to Classroom", the authors present 144 strategies for leading staff development workshops, professional learning communities, and staff meetings. These proven, easy-to-use activities are organized into four 'morphological grids', with columns corresponding to the three principles for successful presentations: Openers - capture the audience's attention - tell them what you are going to do; Meat of the Matter - captivate with the information - do it; Closers - close with keepers - tell them what you did! Using different strategies from each column of a morphological grid, presenters can create a different presentation format every time. Ideas can be arranged or rearranged according to personal preference, group needs, or as a random creative act. Designed for staff developers, school leaders, and professional learning community facilitators, "From Staff Room to Classroom II" makes planning creative and winning presentations effortless.
