This summer we will be immersing ourselves in a culture of excellence with Start. Right. Now., by Todd Whitaker, Jeffrey Zoul, and Jimmy Casas.
The book centers around the four key behaviors of excellence for teachers and leaders – Know the Way, Show the Way, Go the Way, and Grow Each Day. The goal of the book club is for participants to understand and be able to apply each of these keys to their own agricultural education programs.
As we work our way through the book, we will learn how to be more effective teachers and leaders by viewing our classrooms and schools from a new perspective.
No matter where you are in your career as an agricultural educator, this book will help you figure out ways to be even more effective as a leader because, as the book says, “our kids are worth it.”
Beginning in June, the book club will feature weekly reading assignments that will be posted on Communities of Practice. After completion of all the assignments, participants will be awarded 10 hours of professional development credit. Check out the Virtual Book Club on Communities of Practice here.
