Here is a perfect book for campus staff who want to engage in discussion about high expectations. Research has identified high expectations on the part of teachers as essential to success for all students. However, just telling teachers to have high expectations does not often work. In Expectations Game, Tucker and Jackson provide a fun, motivating way to address this important topic. The sessions offer time for both dialogue and discussion in an interactive setting. An expected outcome is that through such dialogue and reflection teachers will gain insight into their own belief systems and thereby be more open to changing some of their own attitudes which may be counterproductive to student success.
To promote high expectations for students' success, Tucker and Jackson have created a game meant to be conducted in faculty meetings throughout the school year. The authors provide practice scenarios, a schedule, step-by-step instructions, and a list of additional resources.--Reference and Research Book News, February 2006
