Reaching All by Creating Tribes Learning Communities blends the fields of group process and cooperative learning; prevention and resiliency; learning theory and school change into a comprehensive, meaningful whole. This readable, useable, wonderful book is not just a set of activities to build community.

Jeanne and her colleagues incorporate the latest research on teaching and learning. They illustrate specifically how the Tribes process applies to a variety of school and organizational needs. Most importantly, they help the reader to feel hopeful and proud to be working and learning together with children and with each other. Copyright 2006 – 1st Edition (ISBN 978-0-932762-41-2. ORDER CODE: T-120)

Due to the weak Canadian dollar, we had to increase the price of Reaching All. We have many other books in stock, and those prices have remained the same.

 

Discovering Gifts in Middle School  
$54.25 CAD
by Jeanne Gibbs

Learning in a Caring Culture Called Tribes motivates and supports middle level schools to make adolescents’ developmental growth and learning needs – during this most critical stage of their lives – the over-riding focus of the whole school community.

The author and her colleagues present a lively synthesis of a wealth of research studies and effective practices which underlie the Tribes Learning Community developmental approach for middle level students and their schools. The synthesis draws upon relevant literature on cognitive theory, human resilience, multiple intelligences, democratic classroom management, cooperative learning, constructivism, social-emotional learning, multicultural-gender equity, reflective practice and authentic assessment.

Placing the major emphasis on middle level schools becoming responsive to the contextual basis of adolescent development, leads not only to greater achievement and success for students but to a new spirit, energy and the discovery of gifts throughout the whole school community.

Engaging All by Creating High School Learning Communities
$54.25 CAD
Jeanne Gibbs & Teri Ushijima, Ed.D.

This comprehensive book provides the research-based framework, pedagogy, concepts and strategies that are essential for engaging all by creating high school learning communities.

Topics discussed include critical indicators of the very different needs of 21st century youth, voices of students themselves, and a consensus of recommendations from the literature and studies, including the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP).

Readers will explore the most promising strategy for sustained, substantive school improvement – that of building the capacity of school personnel – “the insiders” – to function as a collegial learning community, in which teachers collaboratively learn together, tailor curricula to ways in which students of today’s world best can learn, support each other in implementation, and reflect together continuously on their own enhanced learning – as well as that of their students.

Readers will understand why and how the research-based developmental process of Tribes Learning Communities, when implemented well, can transform the culture, structures and pedagogy of the whole high school system – particularly one committed to preparing today’s students for an entirely different era – the Era of Learning. (ISBN  978-0-932762-60-3. ORDER CODE: T-115)

What Is It About Tribes? 
The Research-Based Components of the Developmental Process of Tribes Learning Communities 
by Bonnie Benard
$20.00 CAD

This book, researched and written by Bonnie Benard of WestEd, is an in-depth response to questions that educators have been asking for many years: “What is it about the process of ‘Tribes’ that makes it work so well in so many schools, cultures and countries? What is it that helps all kinds of students love learning and achieve? What is it that makes teaching easier and more enjoyable?”

The author brought hundreds of research studies and literature references into enlightening coherence. The reader will discover why and how implementing the core components of the process of Tribes transforms people, classrooms and schools – not because the approach is a curriculum to be taught or a program to be replicated – but because it is an on-going student-centered active-learning process that everyone in a school lives daily and owns.

The book will also prove to be invaluable in the writing of grants, accessing resources, and designing parent, community and district programs. 2005. 236 pages including a 20 page bibliography. (ISBN  9 7800932 762207. ORDER CODE: T-110)
