Who's Being Served?ISBN: 9781475841282
Asking "Who's Being Served?" reveals who truly benefits from what gets planned, implemented and assessed in today's classrooms. Think about what student-centered classrooms and good restaurants have in common: they each put the customer first! Education is a service industry where relationship building matters. Learn how to transform schools and learning opportunities to be more engaging and effective for students. In this helpful and relevant volume, John Hayward offers advice from over twenty years of teaching about how and why to make the move from teacher-centric control to student-centered facilitation. Each chapter references secrets from the dining industry in regards to how research, planning and observation influence how one serves others. Whether you are an administrator, instructor or school staff, your daily interaction with students needs to be at the level outlined in this book to make a lasting, positive difference. When students choose more, interact more and fully live their learning, their education serves them for longer than a unit or a year. If schools focus on students personally, putting relationships first, the experience and the positive results will last for a lifetime.
