Girl Power! It’s a popular marketing message that shows up on pink T-shirts across the nation. But sparkly words are not enough to get girls to realize their innate value and reach for their true potential.
In Empower Our Girls, educators Lynmara Colón and Adam Welcome collaborate with a strong cast of contributing authors to shine a light on simple, meaningful changes that need to take place in schools and society at large to help girls achieve more.
The words used to describe girls and define traditional roles can set unintentional limits for girls. It’s time for a change! It’s time for girls to hear the truth:
What if learning was exciting?
What if students felt important and empowered every time they walked into the building?
What if parents looked forward to calls from their children's teachers and principals, instead of cringing when the school's number popped up on their phones?
To Todd Nesloney and Adam Welcome, those aren't far-fetched what ifs; they can (and should) be a reality for every teacher, school, parent, and student.
In Kids Deserve It!, Todd and Adam encourage you to think big and make learning fun and meaningful for students. While you're at it, you just might rediscover why you became an educator in the first place.
Learn why you should be calling parents to praise your students (and employees).
Discover ways to promote family interaction and improve relationships for kids at school and at home.
Be inspired to take risks, shake up the status quo, and be a champion for your students.
