Lessons from Leading without Power

Mr. McNamar at the Daily Grind lists eight parallels between good families and good classrooms. These include such things as teaching clear and concrete values:  “In a world with shifting values, the classroom should be firm--a place where students know from day to day, what is expected.”

Useful advice for those who approach teaching as a way of helping young people see that an important reason for education, as for life itself, is to make the places we find ourselves into better places (and learning and telling the stories of all the ordinary heroes who find ways to do that).
