Book Overview
One of education's leading experts on school improvement draws on a study of 81 demographically, economically, and linguistically diverse schools to provide your school with a teacher leadership framework that genuinely leads to higher student achievement. Learn why effective teacher leadership starts with teachers observing the practices of other teachers. And understand how central office administrators become the architects of teacher leader networks that encourage the sharing of effective instructional practice. With a firm grasp of research data, backed-up by first-hand observations from hundreds of schools, Douglas B. Reeves illuminates the way forward to more effective learning organizations: * Why direct observation of the professional practices of teachers by teachers is the new foundation of professional development * How to use teacher leadership to expand and extend the most powerful teaching strategies * The essential elements of a teacher leader framework that promotes deep implementation of effective teaching practices * Fundamental barriers to teacher leadership and how to overcome them * Practical ways to support networks of teacher leaders at the school, district, and state levels
