I checked in with Tom Rooney, Superintendent of Lindsay Unified, to find out his recommended reading list (some of which was already on their website).
He told me: “The main book to help people realize the vision is Inevitable, Mass Customized Learning by Bea McGarvey.” Other helpful books:
- Total Leaders by Schwahn and Spady explores five dimensions of leadership, including Visionary Leadership, Authentic Leadership, Cultural Leadership, Quality Leadership, and Service Leadership.
- Classroom Instruction that Works by Robert Marzano
- Mindset by Carol Dweck
Maybe we should start a CompetencyWorks book group. What have been the most powerful books to help you on your way to competency education?
