Educators face an often overwhelming set of tasks, including educating the whole child, preparing students for the future, meeting all students' daily needs, meeting multiple stakeholders' expectations, and being accountable to government mandates. In The Handbook for SMART School Teams (Second Edition): Revitalizing Best Practices for Collaboration, authors Anne E. Conzemius and Jan O'Neill offer a revamped edition of their groundbreaking resource to support educators and school teams as they meet these challenges head-on.
Like the first edition, The Handbook for SMART School Teams (Second Edition) examines SMART goals goals that are strategic and specific, measurable, attainable, results oriented, and time bound. This enhanced guide provides both theory and practical advice on how to create SMART teams in SMART schools. The authors draw on feedback from district administrators, school principals, classroom teachers, educational consultants, and even college professors to create a deeper understanding of school success and provide K 12 teachers and administrators with a more powerful tool for school improvement.
The book is split into three parts. Part one lays the groundwork for building effective teams. Part two offers tools and processes to sustain effective teamwork. Finally, part three describes methods for schoolwide improvement.
Starting part one, chapters 1 and 2 show readers how to cultivate an atmosphere of collaboration and define team roles. In chapter 3, K 12 teachers and administrators will learn the characteristics of building effective teams and of giving and receiving effective feedback.
Part two starts with chapter 4, which focuses on planning, organizing, and executing meetings. Readers will also explore different types of meetings and their pros and cons. In chapters 5 and 6, educators will gather effective collaboration tools to better understand how staff, students, and stakeholders view their schools. Chapter 7 explores the power of data tools, and educators will examine how data are beneficial for more than identifying problems.
Finally, part three begins with chapter 8, which offers methods for organizing all team members into a cohesive system. In chapter 9, K 12 teachers and administrators will learn a process for schoolwide improvement: selecting a leadership team, preparing the school for change, and isolating key questions to ask during the process.
Appendix A provides additional examples and tools, and appendix B provides reproducibles to support SMART schools.

Campbell's Atlas of Oil and Gas Depletion, Second Edition, is the product of a half-century of critical analysis and updating of data on the status of oil and gas depletion by country, region and the world as a whole. Separate analyses of conventional and non-conventional oil and gas, which are depleting at different rates and costs, show when these critical energy sources peak and decline. The Atlas also summarizes the history and political circumstances of each country to assess the impact on oil and gas production and reserves. It contrasts the First Half of the Oil Age, which saw the rapid expansion of the world economy, allowing the population to grow six-fold, with the Second Half, which will witness a general contraction as these easy, high-density energy supplies dwindle. The transition threatens to be a time of great economic, financial and political tensions. The Atlas, which has been compiled and updated by prominent geologist, former oil company executive, and oil analyst Colin Campbell since the 1960s, addresses the need for a reliable and comprehensive database on a subject essential to governments, industry, academia, and the population as a whole as we attempt to adapt to these critically changing circumstances.
