This Facilitator's Guide to accompany the best-selling book, What Successful Teachers Do, by Neal A. Glasgow and Cathy D. Hicks, has been designed to provide staff developers and educational leaders with all the tools needed to design a workshop or study group based on the authors' 91 key strategies for improving and reenergizing classroom practice. This Facilitator's Guide follows the book closely, and features chapter-by-chapter study questions, activities, journal writing, and practical applications for each section.
Key topics from the book are examined, including discipline and classroom management, assessment, relating to students, working with special needs students, embracing diversity, and integrating technology in the classroom. In this essential resource, the authors follow up on the central themes from the book-the 91 strategies used by successful teachers-with clear examples for using them in instructional settings and tips for avoiding common pitfalls.
Highlights for the facilitator include:

This Facilitator's Guide will help illuminate teachers' understanding and use of the strategies in What Successful Teachers Do, and provide opportunities for reflection and dialogue. It can be used for individual study and for groups of any size-pairs, small groups, and large groups.
