101 Stunts for Principals to Inspire Student Achievement


101 Stunts for Principals to Inspire Student Achievement by Frank Sennett

A fun and functional guide for school leaders who want to encourage and inspire student achievement, this book offers 101 stunts to copy, accompanied by case studies that will make the stunts come to life. Frank Sennett guides the teacher through choosing a stunt, involving the whole school in the process, and finally, carrying out the stunt successfully. He scores each stunt in a variety of ways so that teachers can easily see what fits in with what they want their students to achieve. In addition, he ties stunts to specific discipline areas. This book is a great reference and a kick-start for teachers looking for creative ways to be a part of the achievement process.


I find this book to be comprehensive, helpful, and a creative tool for educators. -- J. Victor McGuire, Instructor/Corwin Author Hard work is the engine that drives my students to success, but it is the fun we have together that fuels the tank. 101 Stunts for Principals to Inspire Student Achievement is the fuel that will help power my students to even higher levels of achievement. -- Bill Cecil Contrary to popular belief, school can be fun. Frank Sennett's motivational stunts provide examples that make learning an enjoyable experience. These humorous suggestions challenge and encourage students to succeed. Principals can choose a stunt level that they are comfortable with and go from there. Let the adventure begin! -- Gerald N. Tirozzi, Executive Director I enjoyed the fun conversational style of writing, the sense of humor, but also well thought out structure, thorough planning, and that everything was linked to academic improvement. -- Caryl Thomason, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction This is an excellent book to use as a quick reference to help brainstorm creative ideas to inspire students. -- Jan Griffin, Assistant Principal
