When numbers become people, learners thrive

Waves of data—indigestible, dehumanized, and disaggregated—are crashing into the education system every day, driving you to distraction. But imagine a world where you’re not being drowned by data, but inspired by it; where that data has a FACE and gives you focused information on how to reach every student.

Sharratt and Fullan turn worldwide research into a road map for school leaders to use ongoing assessment to inform instruction and drive equity at the classroom, school, district, and state levels. Inside you will find

  • A fresh look at data to incorporate new learning
  • Updated case studies, figures, and vignettes
  • Insights from more than 500 educators in answering the 3 research questions: Why do we put FACES on data? How do we put FACES on data? and What are the top three leadership skills needed to do this work?
  • An integrated approach to using the 14 Parameters to enhance Deep Learning and critical thinking
  • Tools for committing to “equity and excellence”

FACES is about setting up the conditions for success in every classroom: identifying the right factors, at the right time, with the right resources. Its focus on student-centered data will help you:

  • Increase learners’ growth and achievement
  • improve engagement that results in students, teacher and leader empowerment
  • build cultures of learning
  • drive a learning environment of continuous improvement

Epilogue

Lyn Sharratt and Michael Fullan clearly articulate the complexity of change and the necessity to understand the 13 parameters by providing an insightful resource using case studies to provide an indisputable pathway to system improvement.  This is a must read for every system leader, school leader, and teacher leader.  Their work has been pivotal in my work as a system change leader in both Manitoba and Alberta and is even more important coming out of a global pandemic.

This powerful book provides the missing links between intention and action. Educators want to see every student succeed in learning and in life. The challenge is to reform the system to deliver on broader and deeper goals while also engaging each student on a pathway to their “best possible, most richly imagined future.” This book is a beacon of hope that honours the work of all teachers and leaders by making sense of the improvement journey in classrooms, schools, and systems.
