Every worthwhile book has a deeply held belief, and for Jim Knight’s Better Conversations and this worktext, The Reflection Guide to Better Conversations, here it is: “Effective communication is an essential skill for a fulfilled life, and we can’t teach it to students if we don’t know how to do it ourselves.” Instructional coaches, administrators, teachers . . . really everyone: the royal we is you. In this Reflection Guide, Jim delivers a framework for improving professional dialogue that is so clearly signposted, you might as well call it a day planner. Here’s how The Reflection Guide to Better Conversations works: In Part One, you and your peers engage in surveys, take stock, and record video in order to get real about your current beliefs and abilities. How do you measure up when it comes to empathy, asking better questions? Finding common ground? In Part Two, learn about the 10 habits of being an effective communicator, and put them into practice. Are your conversations focused on others 50 percent of the time? What things typically distract you from being fully present? In Better Conversations, Jim Knight reveals why true dialogue improves professional performance, job satisfaction, and classroom instruction. Together with this Reflection Guide, the two books provide a brilliant, scaffolded professional learning experience on a topic central to learning, central to life. This is the district-wide solution you need—are you ready?

"It seems like everyone else has the script. Everyone else knows what's happening and I look around and say, Duh." Of course, the truth is that no one has the script because there is no script to follow. Chances are you'd find that almost everyone else has questions and worries a lot like yours, if you could get them to admit it. This brand-new, completely updated and revised edition of Changing Bodies, Changing Lives is full of honest, accurate, nonjudgmental information on everything teenagers need to know about today. Am I the only one who can't get up the nerve to ask someone out? got my period so early? doesn't even know the right way to kiss? feels pressured to use drugs? still hasn't hit puberty yet? wants to avoid the gang scene? worries when my mom doesn't come home at night? is scared that I might have AIDS? can't decide what form of birth control to use? has no idea how to tell my friends I'm gay? goes on eating binges? has never had an orgasm? is shut out of the popular crowd? Changing Bodies, Changing Lives has helped hundreds of thousands of teenagers make informed decisions about their lives, from questions about sex, love, friendship, and how your body works to dealing with problems at school and home and figuring out who you are. It's packed with illustrations, checklists, and resources for the answers you really need. Best of all, it's filled with the voices, poems, and cartoons from hundreds of other teenagers, who tell you what makes them feel worried, angry, confused, sexy, happy, and, yes, even excited and hopeful about their lives. (Check out the first two pages for a sample of the quotes you'll find inside.) Being a teenager is tough. With the information and the ideas inside this book, you'll have what you need to make these years the best they can be. From the Trade Paperback edition.
