One of the most profound interactions that can occur between people, apologies have the power to heal humiliations, free the mind from deep-seated guilt, remove the desire for vengeance, and ultimately restore broken relationships. With On Apology, Aaron Lazare offers an eye-opening analysis of this vital interaction, illuminating an often hidden corner of the human heart. He discusses the importance of shame, guilt, and humiliation, the initial reluctance to apologize, the simplicity of the act of apologizing, the spontaneous generosity and forgiveness on the part of the offended, the transfer of power and respect between two parties, and much more. Readers will not only find a wealth of insight that they can apply to their own lives, but also a deeper understanding of national and international conflicts and how we might resolve them. The act of apologizing is quite simply immensely fulfilling. On Apology opens a window onto this common occurrence to reveal the feelings and actions at the heart of this profound interaction.

Simply the Best acknowledges the importance of listening to students to inform our efforts in schools. Schools and teachers can find extensive support for an intentional focus on developing relationships in schools and how these relationships result in improved academic performance, in reducing achievement gaps, and in promoting safe schools and productive learning environments for students. Students should be more than passive participants in the educational process. They can articulate teacher behaviors that make a difference for them. Simply the Best utilizes not only a research voice to identify practices schools should consider around relationships, but also enlists the student voice. Focus groups of students from elementary, middle and high were interviewed and an array of research using student surveys and perspectives consulted resulting in the identification of twenty-nine (29) practices that characterize the best teachers. Simply the Best outlines a research and a student perspective considering relationships around the following dimensions: Relationships Around a Moral Imperative Relationships Around Curriculum Relationships Around Instruction Relationships Around Assessment Relationships Around Recovery. Readers are encouraged to reflect on their experiences as a student, as well as the professional practices in their classrooms or schools. Eighty (80) ideas geared toward relationship building and the development of a customer service mind-set are shared as suggestions for teachers. Simply the Best serves as a reminder of the power of the teacher - the power of our words and actions in shaping students' educational experience. The teacher and student relationship is the foundation for school improvement efforts. How would students describe those relationships in your school? How many of the 29 things students say make the best teachers could be commonly observed in classrooms at your school? Read to see what truly makes a difference for students!
