Appreciation is one of the most compelling and powerful feelings we possess, so why don't we use it more often in education. In Think Differently, Jen Townsend shows educators and educational leaders how to use appreciative inquiry to reinvigorate and transform collaborative teams. With a few simple but powerful adjustments, educators can notice their practices to discover and capitalize on the positive work that is already happening in their classrooms. This book is filled with practical examples, strategies, and reflections, so that educators can see how to think differently about teaching and learning. It explains the neuroscience behind appreciation, the "3is" of engagement, and how to utilize social emotional learning (SEL) and universal design for learning (UDL) to collaborate efficiently and effectively.
