Since writing The Power and Promise of Pathways book in 2016, I have been overwhelmed with positive feedback about the impact of the book. I tried to incorporate all the relevant concepts for a fully developed Pathways system, including employer engagement, quality pathway programs, career development, the urgency for change, the research base for pathways strategies, and more. I’ve been thrilled to hear from folks across the U.S. who have used the book or even parts of the book to make a change within their state, districts, schools, or communities.
Ever since we published, readers have been asking for a discussion guide that they can use with their district leaders, teams of teachers, and other interested stakeholders. So, we were finally able to create a companion discussion guide designed to deepen your understanding and application of the concepts explored in The Power and Promise of Pathways. It covers the book chapter-by-chapter with questions to spur thought and discussion about each of the topics explored.
I’m excited to announce that, starting today, you can download a FREE copy of The Power and Promise of Pathways: A Guide For Group Discussion or Personal Study. Please click here to access your copy. And please give us feedback as to how you’re using the guide and how it can be improved. We sincerely hope it helps you in building consensus, vision, and clarity as you move forward in your pathways journey.
