“ . . . the focus of schooling has shifted from teaching to learning - to the skills and knowledge students must master, rather than the skills and knowledge teachers must teach. This is not a rhetorical difference. It turns education on its head as the focus shifts from assuring common processes for all schools to assuring outcomes for all students.”-Arthur LevineEducating Teachers (2008)

The Skillful Teacher leader

“The skillful teacher’s repertoire for getting and keeping students on task should include at least a few [attention] moves from each of these categories [desisting, alerting, enlisting, acknowledging, and winning]” (23). Different students – with different needs – require different moves, and skillful teachers deliberately match [to learner, situation, curriculum] their moves to students” (31).
