Lessons Learned through Culture
Lesson Learned: Leadership Lessons from the Cherokee Chief who transformed his Nation
Chad “Corntassel” Smith
Mr. Smith utilized a traditional Cherokee prayer and based his leadership model on this prayer. He utilized learning as way to improve life for the Cherokee nation. As a teacher in a turnaround school, I wonder if this format would help bring out the best of the school. If this format would improved test scores and improve the culture within the school. This sure seemed to help the Cherokee nation.
I understand there is difference between a school and an entire nation. However, the basics are there prayer that Chad “Corntassel” Smith used is sound. In order to get the return educators need to know their students and understand where they come from, but not use it as an excuse to keep them for growing. The principals are sound and can help rebuild Nation, could help rebuild a school.
The initial introduction of Theodora did not give me a good feeling about her. I didn’t like her. I did like Chad and thought of him as the duck who was trying to be a good neighbor. The more I read the book, the more the story charmed me because of their friendship. It is a great book to teach children about friendship and why differences are good.

What a great book for to introduce student to the importance of good health practices! This story provides an interesting way to explain and describe good health practices. The story is written in such a method that explains why prevention is so important and how a little knowledge can help with prevention. This book could also be used as a part of a social studies unit and provide older students with information as part of research.
I read with book because the subject matter interested me. I was not disappointed by the content as it provided a great deal of information about the process of making beer. In addition, one of my favorite authors always referenced home brewed bear in her stories so I was interested in determining how hard it was to make beer.
The book did provide a great deal of information, however, the sequence of events did not flow well for me. I know a little something about the process of making beer. I grew up in Germany, lived in Minnesota and attended the Oktoberfest in both places. I like the book as a whole. The authors provided great information and the instructions were written in a readable fashion. However, I thought the arrangement of the materials could be a little different. The chapters did not really flow and I think that putting the recipes of the beer next to the various degrees of the difficulty in making beer. Despite those formatting issues, I did like the book.
A Book Review
Great Story! Great story in so many ways! The authors wrote and illustrated a wonderful story that is not about Mommy having a baby in the hospital. This story provides a original outlook on visiting a sick person in the hospital. The end of the book provides great suggestions on how to bring a child to the hospital for a visit. I highly recommend the book both as an instructional piece and as a story.
