Using the theory of headwinds/ tailwinds asymmetry as a framework, Brian Curtin discusses the ways in which we tell our own stories and its impact on our perception of our schools, our colleagues, our administrators, our parents, and our kids. Once we're cognizant of these stories, we can use them to reshape our mindset in an effort to make our professional lives happier and more productive.
How do stories impact our work within and beyond the classroom? How might educators, stakeholders, and advocates leverage the power of story to shift the public education narrative? During the months of July and August, members of the CTQ Collaboratory will explore the power of story.
