Change – Ideas for Making It Happen!

Change – Why Is It So Hard?

As many of you know, I'm ready for the Literacy Revolution.  I've been reading books about change and thinking about the WHY of change – and resistance to change.  We all know how hard change is – we've just been through 'springing forward' during daylight savings, and that has many people tired and cranky!  And that's just the change of one hour.

I really love this quote, first because it starts with 'one reason . . .'.  YES!  We need to think deeply about WHY people are resistant to change.  I hear people talk about laziness, etc.  But it's much more complex than that.  And we need to help people understand what they will GAIN.  That's the 'cognitive clarity' behind asking educators, parents,(or ourselves) to change.  So let's start the conversation about what we will GAIN as well as GIVE UP!!
