Editorial Reviews

Review

"Pernille has shared what it takes to create an environment that nurtures growth for students and staff."

(Nicholas Provenzano, The Nerdy Teacher)

"This book is a must read for any educator looking to transform their classroom or school to be more relevant for their students and staff. Ripp’s personality and warmth comes through in her writing and coupled with first-hand experience, this is a great resource for teachers and administrators alike. In addition, the author weaves in specific examples from professionals practicing the advice she puts forth.

 

In this day of increasingly standardized educational practice, this book helps to navigate ways in which to empower the work we do as teachers and leaders. Many books are written from so called “experts” with little in-school experience, but Pernille is living and breathing what she writes about. Her narrative and those she shares are authentic and from the perspective of practicing educators. When she puts forth an idea, it is backed up with a powerful story from practitioners who are working in schools and with kids every single day. This allows readers to not only gain access to Pernille’s ideas but see how they play out in numerous contexts and situations."

(Josh Stumpenhorst, Junior High Teacher)

"In this book, Pernille makes a case for the need to change from a traditional hierarchical approach of control to a shared, empowering approach. This book outlines steps that administrators can take to share leadership in their schools and teachers can take to share the responsibility of learning with the students.

I have known Pernille for many years and my respect for her as a classroom teacher, educational thinker, and student advocate has continually grown. When Pernille speaks about empowering students I listen as should you. She is one of those rare voices, a classroom teacher who shares openly and honestly about changing practices to create a student centered classroom."

(William Chamberlain, Teacher)

"Pernille Ripp gives great examples not only on how leaders can empower teachers to hone in on their leadership skills in the school community, but also how teachers can empower students to create a positive learning environment in the classroom. Pernille’s story about her own classroom is truly inspiring and makes you think as a teacher ways in which you can empower your own students to take ownership in the classroom.  I look forward to suggesting this book to my colleagues as a must read."
(Billy Krakower, Founding Partner of Evolving Educators)

"As a long time blogger, Pernille has been sharing her insights and challenges for a number of years. Her following grows as she presents an honest reflection of life in a classroom. These reflections reveal a vulnerability that endears her readers and instills hope about the possibility for change.

This books theme of empowerment is what Pernille has been living for years. Shes been able to eloquently share this idea, providing practical steps, addressing the challenges and reasoning behind change. Its a quick read but one that will get pulled off of the shelf time and time again."

(Dean Shareski, Community Manager)

"As of now there are about 20 books in the Corwin Connected Educator Series, a seemingly ever-growing set of titles masterminded by Peter DeWitt and Corwin Press. Each book is short enough to be read in one sitting, which makes the collection ideal for book studies and professional development, both during the summer and throughout the school year. Also, each paperback is authored by one or two educators who speak (and blog, tweet, etc.) with a credible voice in the world of connected education. Some of the topics include:
  • Flipped leadership
  • Tools for connecting educators, parents, and communities
  • Blogging for educators
  • Best practices for establishing a makerspace
  • Tools to connect and empower teachers

Finally, all of the authors are active on social media, and they regularly present at local conferences, which helps in bringing to life the contents of these books."

(Ross Cooper, Supervisor of Instructional Practice K-12)

Format: Paperback
Corwin Press has done it again with Pernille Ripp‘s Empowered Schools, Empowered Students.

As connected educators, we find ourselves in a web of interconnectivity that leads to us to soul searching and empowerment. It’s through my connected learning that I came to be a part of the Corwin Connected Educator Series.

Consistently, I’ve read these books and have felt understood and on behalf of my students have felt a need to share them with people.

Ripp’s exploration of how schools can empower staffs, thereby empowering students is eye-opening and approachable.

Although many of the ideas may be new, Ripp creates easy action plans for schools or teachers to implement, all the while not being preachy.Extremely readable and mind changing about the current culture of education, Pernille Ripp shows educators on all levels how to rise above and make learning better for everyone.

Some of the tips I thought were really useful had to do with schools using “experts within” to improve climate and learning for all. Ripp states that too often schools look outside for professional learning, inadvertently disenfranchising staff who could bIMG_6854.JPGe useful and empowered. She also addresses the fears that these teachers feel while alone in their buildings (which I could really relate to).

This excerpt is a good example of why so many gifted and thoughtful educators don’t speak up in their communities.

Pernille Ripp’s book is a must read for anyone who is ready to help significantly change the climate of his/her community. Empowered schools lead to better learning and leadership for all people involved, not just teachers or just students. It’s an opportunity to take a risk that can pay off exponentially.

Mrs. Ripp provides readers with convincing reasons to allow the control of the classroom to shift to students rather than the teacher. Mrs. Ripp examines the justification and obstacles of each of the ideas presented. She provides a classroom-based example of the ideas presented that is based off of her own experience. The book is easy to read and the ideas are easy to implement, if you are ready to shift the balance of power in your own classroom!
