One of the most important shifts in schools in the last two decades has been the growing emphasis on collaboration among teachers and other educators. Whether you are a teacher facilitating a group for the first time or an experienced facilitator seeking to further develop your skills, this book is for you. Organized to be both an exploration of the role of facilitating and a handbook of strategies, this resource is designed for use in a range of contexts, including faculty and department meetings, professional learning communities, grade-level teams, and inquiry groups. A perfect companion to the authors’ bestseller, The Facilitator’s Book of Questions, Facilitating for Learning extends the scope of that work by examining the facilitator’s responsibilities for supporting a group’s learning during all parts of a meeting, between meetings, and within the larger school context and culture. It is an essential resource for teachers, administrators, coaches, and teacher educators.

Book Features:

  • Contrasts facilitating for learning with other professional development roles, including staff development, coaching, and supervision.
  • Outlines the basic responsibilities and tasks of facilitating teacher learning groups, including “moves” the facilitator might employ.
  • Considers challenges related to school culture and leadership, group interactions, and time constraints.
  • Provides resources to help facilitators develop their skills, including tools and references to other works on facilitation.
