Smart Summaries

What is a Smart Summary?

Smart Summaries break down important books, texts and other educational resources into a quick synopsis and provides busy education professionals with ideas to help develop greater leadership skills, intellect and innovation within classrooms and educational systems.

Too busy to read entire texts and looking for quick ideas and strategies to grow your leadership? Use these Smart Summaries to grow as a leader in the classroom, school, or system. Each month a new Smart Summary will be published to help staff, parents, principals, and district level leaders in schools.

If you are interested in joining a discussion about the strategies found within this Smart Summary, please contact me.
