At long last, Julie Wilson′s thinking about how to transform school culture and teacher mindsets is now in print for the global education community to consider within their individual school innovation plans. The Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning has greatly benefited from Julie′s on-site workshops and we are grateful to now have Julie′s wisdom for immediate reference when she is not available in-person.

The desire for an evolution in education has reached a fevered pitch over the last few years. Amidst this forward momentum, Julie Wilson’s book serves as a useful pause button; a reminder that education, at its core, has been and always should be a human-centered enterprise. It is worth noting how useful it is to have someone point out something that, once a light is shone, seems so obvious. I thank Julie – and this book – for being that beacon.
-- Chris Jackson, Chief Communications Officer

Julie looks at how humans impact change specifically within the world of education and this can begin with simply unlearning skills and habits. By unlearning, individuals can then explore new skills that could prove beneficial. Julie does a great job in the first chapter sharing worthy skills that individuals need today and explaining how they could be built upon through education. I highly encourage individuals to read these skills, while we all know of them, it is interesting to have a little perspective on how they can be beneficial. These worthy skills in addition to the 5 factors that Julie shares can help determine how to provide the best change possible within the education environment that will be beneficial to those students.
The most important thing to consider as you look at change especially in the education environment is doing so in the best manner possible. Julie’s guidelines help navigate establishing a change in an organization making you think before just acting. But most importantly Julie considers the importance and shares how to lead yourself through change. This is very important since individuals play a major role in change.
I love the quotes throughout the book. They added to the overall information provided. Additionally, at the conclusion of each chapter, reflection questions have been included which are really beneficial and help make you as the reader consider Julie’s thoughts and research. Julie does a great job throughout the book providing her insight to changing education that will help students learn in a new and unique manner that will benefit them in the long term.
