Why Change?
Why should educators accept and embrace change? Lausanne Learning Mentor David Yarborough shares why change is so necessary, even essential, in education - and why we should treat education more like an industry when it comes to growth and change. Grace Hopper said, "the most dangerous phrase...is we've always done it that way," and we couldn't agree more with that sentiment. Read more on why change is so crucial in David's blog, and always keep changing the world, shaking things up, and stepping out of line, friends!

Troublemakers: Lessons in Freedom from Young Children at School
by Carla Shalaby

In this book, Shalaby argues that, "if being a leader means doing exactly what one is told, we should wonder what it means to be a follower." Using examples of four young children who are "troublemakers," she examines the ways we force students into an ideal of what school should be - often without even asking the students what they need. In an age when young people are walking out of schools to demand change in curriculums, diversity, and the very future of our planet, Troublemakers makes us reevaluate our reactions to students who don't always follow the rules.

Never Work Harder than Your Students and Other Principles of Great Teaching
by Robyn R. Jackson


How many of us spend huge amounts of time teaching, grading, and lecturing only to have students stay completely disengaged and failing? Jackson takes a principle Lausanne Learning absolutely espouses - student-led learning and mastery - and uses it to show how any teacher can be a master teacher, working smarter not harder, and actually engaging students in their own education. A great book for new and experienced teachers alike!

A Note from the Director
Happy October!

Anyone else super ready for all the fun fall brings? Corn mazes and apple pies and FALL BREAK and pumpkin carving and Halloween costumes and football? It's finally here!

This fall, we're kicking off the season with a PD day at Lausanne Collegiate School (Teaching for IB Classrooms) followed by Mississippi - Innovation in Action in December at Madison-Ridgeland Academy. We're also heading to New Orleans for the ISTE Creative Constructor Lab conference - if you're there, find us and say hi! 

But don't worry - we're making plenty of time for fun too! I'm heading to Maine to fulfill my lifelong dream of a New England autumn experience (apple picking in actual cool weather! leaves that change color rather than just dying!) and Amy is planning lots of fun fall activities with her family and her trip to ISTE. We're also both taking this season as a time to reflect, plan, and gear up for all the conferences and fun times with our community in the near future! 

What are your fall plans? 
 
Sincerely, 
Amber Colvin, Director of Lausanne Learning
