What skills and capacities do teachers and leaders need to create and sustain such schools? What actions are necessary? Bold Moves for Schools offers a compelling vision that answers these questions--and action steps to make the vision a reality. Looking through the lenses of three pedagogies--antiquated, classical, and contemporary--authors Heidi Hayes Jacobs and Marie Hubley Alcock examine every aspect of K-12 education, including curriculum, instruction, assessment, and the program structures of space (both physical and virtual), time, and grouping of learners and professionals. In a new job description for teachers, Jacobs and Alcock highlight and expound on the following roles: self-navigating professional learner, social contractor, media critic and media maker, innovative designer, globally connected citizen, and advocate for learners and learning. With thought-provoking proposals and practical strategies for change, Bold Moves for Schools sets educators on the path to redefining their profession and creating exciting new learning environments. The challenge is unprecedented. The possibilities are unlimited.

    When Shakespeare wrote "Boldness be my friend! Arm me, audacity, from head to foot!" he was foreshadowing Jacobs and Alcock's transformational roadmap for change in our schools. At the district and network level, the book provide the research, reasons and framework for change. For teachers, it's filled with links to resources on curriculum and systems that you can use now, and also references that explain where we came from and where we are going.

For teachers, it's filled with links to resources on curriculum and systems that you can use now, and also references that explain where we came from and where we are going. Bold Moves gives us a vision for a holistic, integrated learning community, and then proceeds to tell us how to make it happen now!

    This book provides an essential vision and pathway for what schools should strive to become in this century. I'm using this resource as the primary text for a graduate course I'm teaching in curriculum and instruction.

    This book was thought provoking while at the same time giving ideas on how to make such “bold moves”. I’m using it as a staff resource for my school.
