New York Times best-selling author and leadership expert John Maxwell offers practical insight into learning how to lead the person who matters most—yourself. The path to leadership begins with a question only few of us ask: How do I lead myself? John Maxwell presents twenty-six insights, not just for those who aspire to positions of leadership but also for veteran leaders who aim to build and improve upon the steps that led them to the front of the line. Sound leadership will impact any endeavor, but sound leaders are prepared for risk—and importantly, failure—just as they point the way toward achievement. With application exercises and a “Mentoring Moment” to accompany each chapter, The Leadership Handbook presents a road map for a path many may cross but few choose to follow. “A leader," counsels Maxwell, "never has to recover from a good start.”

This handbook, designed to help high school teachers remodel their lesson plans, has one basic objective: to demonstrate that it is possible and practical to integrate instruction for critical thinking into the teaching of all subjects. The handbook discusses the concept of critical thinking and the principles that underlie it and shows how critical thinking can be taught in language arts, social studies, and science. The seven chapters of the book's first section are designed to: (1) provide an introduction to critical thinking and its importance for education, as well as an introduction to lesson remodeling; (2) go deeply into the question of what education for critical thinking requires of teachers; (3) explain the 35 remodeling strategies and their importance, with suggestions on how to teach for them; and (4) present 64 remodeled lessons focusing on language arts, social studies, and science (but also including math, Spanish, typing, physical education, work experience, and interdisciplinary remodels), along with descriptions of some frequently encountered flaws in textbook approaches. The handbook's second section, which also contains seven chapters, compares didactic and critical views on education, outlines the changes in curriculum required by a shift toward education for critical thought, provides practical ideas for facilitating staff development in critical thinking, presents short writings on critical thinking by teachers after a workshop on the subject, and considers the problem of defining critical thinking. The seventh chapter of this section consists of an analytic glossary of key words and phrases on the topic. Resources for teaching critical thinking (including an annotated list of videotapes and a list of audiotapes), as well as information about the Center for Critical Thinking, are appended. (SR)
