From a distinguished clinician, pioneer in working with behaviorally challenging kids, and author of the acclaimed The Explosive Child comes a groundbreaking approach for understanding and helping these kids and transforming school discipline.

Frequent visits to the principal's office. Detentions. Suspensions. Expulsions. These are the established tools of school discipline for kids who don't abide by school rules, have a hard time getting along with other kids, don't seem to respect authority, don't seem interested in learning, and are disrupting the learning of their classmates. But there's a big problem with these strategies: They are ineffective for most of the students to whom they are applied.

15 Collaborative Intelligence - J. Richard Hackman
Auteur : J. Richard Hackman
Genre : Management & Leadership
Intelligence professionals are commonly viewed as solo operators. But these days intelligence work is mostly about collaboration. Interdisciplinary and even inter-organizational teams are necessary to solve the really hard problems intelligence professionals face. Tragically, these teams often devolve into wheel-spinning, contentious assemblies that get nothing done. Or members may disengage from a team if they find its work frustrating, trivial, or a waste of their time. Even teams with a spirit of camaraderie may take actions that are flat-out wrong. But there is also good news. This book draws on recent research findings as well as Harvard Professor Richard Hackman’s own experience as an intelligence community researcher and advisor to show how leaders can create an environment where teamwork flourishes. Hackman identifies six enabling conditions – such as establishing clear

17 Syncopating the Urban Landscape - Detroit Collaborative Design Center
Auteur : Detroit Collaborative Design Center
Genre : Art & Architecture
Syncopating the Urban Landscape looks in a creative way at the City of Detroit through the work of the Detroit Collaborative Design Center at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Architecture. Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urban Design and Civic Engagement become the focus of the work illustrated throughout the book and are presented through essays, provocative statements, and project images and descriptions. The outcome is a picture of not just Detroit, but of a way of thinking about cities and people who live in them that has implications worldwide.

In music, to syncopate means to take the stronger, more dominant musical notes and make them weaker, and at the same time to take the weaker notes and make them stronger. In Detroit as well as many other cities around the world, something akin to this process has been happening organically over decades, if not longe

18 Essays in Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning - Gerry Stahl
Auteur : Gerry Stahl
Genre : Essays
"Essays in CSCL" reports on the author’s research in computer-supported collaborative learning, covering a broad range of topics. It begins with general reflections on the importance of CSCL as a research field, situating Stahl’s work on the Virtual Math Teams Project and his theory of group cognition within the field of CSCL. It describes the VMT research project, including its research approach, technology, pedagogy and analysis methods. Mostly, it discusses in some detail the findings that have emerged from the VMT Project about the nature of online interaction in that type of CSCL setting. The volume concludes with reports of current work in the project and future directions that are underway. In this way, it elaborates, deepens and extends the presentation in Stahl’s two major publications, "Group Cognition" (2006, MIT Press) and "Studying Virtual Math Teams" (2009, Springer)

19 The Zero Marginal Cost Society - Jeremy Rifkin
Auteur : Jeremy Rifkin
Genre : Economics
In The Zero Marginal Cost Society, New York Times bestselling author Jeremy Rifkin describes how the emerging Internet of Things is speeding us to an era of nearly free goods and services, precipitating the meteoric rise of a global Collaborative Commons and the eclipse of capitalism.

Rifkin uncovers a paradox at the heart of capitalism that has propelled it to greatness but is now taking it to its death—the inherent entrepreneurial dynamism of competitive markets that drives productivity up and marginal costs down, enabling businesses to reduce the price of their goods and services in order to win over consumers and market share. (Marginal cost is the cost of producing additional units of a good or service, if fixed costs are not counted.) While economists have always welcomed a reduction in marginal cost, they never anticipated the possibility of a tec

20 The Collaborative Way to Divorce - Stuart G. Webb & Ronald D. Ousky
Auteur : Stuart G. Webb & Ronald D. Ousky
Genre : Family & Relationships
The groundbreaking alternative for the millions of couples with children who face divorce each year—couples who want to avoid litigation, but don’t want to give up on getting what they want.

Even under the best circumstances, divorce can be marked by a range of painful emotions. But research now reveals that how a couple conducts themselves during a divorce has far greater impact on their children than the act of divorcing itself. Groundbreaking and revolutionary, The Collaborative Way to Divorce is the first guide to the Collaborative process, a nationally acclaimed approach based on the concept that both spouses hire legal representation, yet agree to resolve their differences with no intention of ever going to court.

Stressing cooperation over confrontation and resolution over revenge, Collaborative divorce

24 Raising Human Beings - Ross W Greene
Auteur : Ross W Greene
Genre : Parenting
Renowned child psychologist and New York Times bestselling author of Lost at School and The Explosive Child explains how to cultivate a better parent-child relationship while also nurturing empathy, honesty, resilience, and independence.

Parents have an important task: figure out who their child is—his or her skills, preferences, beliefs, values, personality traits, goals, and direction—get comfortable with it, and then help them pursue and live a life according to it. Yet parents also want their kids to be independent, but not if they are going to make bad choices. They want to avoid being too overbearing, but not if an apathetic kid is what they have to show for it. They want to have a good relationship with their kids, but not if that means being a pushover. They don’t want to scream, but they do want to be heard. Good parenting is about striking

25 The Laramie Project and The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later - Moises Kaufman, Tectonic Theater Project, Leigh Fondakowski, Greg Pierotti & Andy Paris
Auteur : Moises Kaufman, Tectonic Theater Project, Leigh Fondakowski, Greg Pierotti & Andy Paris
Genre : Theater
The Laramie Project, one of the most-performed theater pieces in America, has become a modern classic. In this expanded edition, it is joined by an essential and moving sequel to the original play.

On October 7, 1998, a young gay man was discovered bound to a fence outside Laramie, Wyoming, savagely beaten and left to die in an act of brutality and hate that shocked the nation. Matthew Shepard’s death became a national symbol of intolerance, but for the people of the town, the event was deeply personal. In the aftermath, Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project went to Laramie and conducted more than 200 interviews with its citizens. From the transcripts, the playwrights constructed an extraordinary chronicle of life in the town after the murder.

In The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later, the troupe revisits the town a decade after

Central Ideas
What is it that I want students to understand about this content? What understandings about the craft of writing do I want them to grasp?

Focusing Question
What question will I pose so that students can see how to approach this thinking/writing in a specific, appropriate, manageable way?

Building and Processing Working Knowledge

33 Change by Design, Revised and Updated - Tim Brown
Auteur : Tim Brown
Genre : Management & Leadership
The subject of “design thinking” is the rage at business schools, throughout corporations, and increasingly in the popular press—due in large part to the work of IDEO, a leading design firm, and its celebrated CEO, Tim Brown, who uses this book to show how the techniques and strategies of design belong at every level of business.

The myth of innovation is that brilliant ideas leap fully formed from the minds of geniuses. The reality is that most innovations come from a process of rigorous examination through which great ideas are identified and developed before being realized as new offerings and capabilities.

Change by Design explains design thinking, the collaborative process by which the designer’s sensibilities and methods are employed to match people’s needs, not only with what is technically feasible, but what is viable to the bottom line. Design th

Auteur : Cathy Clark, Jed Emerson & Ben Thornley
Genre : Finance
Investing with the explicit goal of creating financial returns alongside measurable social and environmental benefits is catching fire.

43 Teams That Thrive - Ryan T. Hartwig, PhD & Warren Bird, Ph.D
Auteur : Ryan T. Hartwig, PhD & Warren Bird, Ph.D
Genre : Christianity
It's increasingly clear that leadership should be shared—for the good of any organization and for the good of the leader. Many churches have begun to share key leadership duties, but don’t know how to take their leadership team to the point where it thrives. Others seriously need a new approach to leadership: pastors are tired, congregations are stuck, and meanwhile the work never lets up. But what does it actually mean to do leadership well as a team? How can it be done in a way that avoids frustration and burnout? How does team leadership best equip the staff and bless a congregation? What do the top church teams do to actually thrive together? Researchers and practitioners Ryan Hartwig and Warren Bird have discovered churches of various sizes and traditions throughout the United States who have learned to thrive under healthy team leadership. Using actual church examples, they p

Walking DOWN THE street of a sustainable city in 20 years from now…
…was the vision that came up to design this toolkit for collaborative scenario building. Pulling ourselves out of our daily contexts and current mindsets to envision the future in an open and creative way is one of the bottlenecks in participative forward-looking activities. 
The vision of walking for a short while on a street of a sustainable futures society, experiencing a walkable neighbourhood with refurbished passive houses in a food-resilient city brought to build a light exhibition with snapshots of the future, posters and manifestos that would immerse participants to a projection exercise into a stimulating, controversial, slightly provoking environment to set the right mood for an open strategic conversation.

47 Collaborative Stewardship - Olivia McDonald
Auteur : Olivia McDonald
Genre : Politics & Current Events
Collaborative Stewardship: Analytical Approach to Improving Quality of Life in Communities rests upon the idea that community should be seen as a living organism, one for which specific functions need to be in working order for the community to survive and then operate at peak performance. To date, researchers have tended to approach development from the perspective of community actors and actions rather than assessing the overall vitality of the jurisdiction, which if the answer to that question were pursued, it would entail giving consideration to the systematic review of contagion and interdependency of internal workings associated with the configuration of entities resident there. This book introduces a paradigm for evaluating collaborative policy and program activity; and, the parameters within which such evaluations may take place.
