Each month we will highlight a new book we feel will provide deeper insight, tools, and support for the month’s topic. This is meant to be an added resource for those who’d like more depth. Reading the book is not necessary to participate in the forum or webinars.

Using this innovative collection of brain-centric strategies, teachers can transform their classrooms into deep learning spaces that support their students through self-regulation and mindset shifts. These fresh insights will help teachers resolve classroom management issues, prevent crises and disruptive behaviors, and center social-emotional learning and restorative practices.
