How can we encourage school leaders to think differently about the instruction we deliver? This book was written by Hope and Wade King who both teach at the Ron Clark Academy. The Wild Card is to help educators through the process of a creative breakthrough so that they can deliver engaging, inspiring, content-driven curriculum to their students. As educators we know that children enter our building with various backgrounds and experiences, the book encourages teachers to “be the wildcard” for students. The writers encourage educators to go beyond the mundane learning experiences for students by incorporating singing, dancing, room transformations, experiments. So why do school leaders need this book in their hands? Well, it all starts with us, and the experiences we are providing for our teachers. These seven steps can be applied beyond the classroom and directly to school leadership.
