  • Leading the Rebound

     “If there was ever a time for our heroic school leadership to persevere, it’s now. Because now, well over one year since the pandemic stretched the resilience and reserves of our school systems, it’s time to ‘rebound.’ It’s time to leverage this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reboot teaching and learning as we know it so that we magnify the effective practices from the past while leveraging the many recent lessons learned.”

    Leading the Rebound, Doug Fisher, et al

    This virtual institute, underwritten by 21CSLA, is being led by authors Doug Fisher and Nancy Frey. Included will be a copy of the Leading the Rebound eBook.
