In Collaborative School Leadership, Nash and Hwang provide administrators with clear and focused ideas on making the most of collaborative leadership while on the path to continuous improvement. Recognizing that classroom instruction is at the core of any plan of improvement, this book looks at the role and nature of powerful building-level professional development. Nash and Hwang provide answers to critical questions: As part of a school s improvement efforts, what is non-negotiable? What are some barriers to progress, and how can they be overcome or removed? How can building administrators help teachers improve instruction? An extensive appendix provides principals and teacher leaders with ten lessons and an entire chapter is devoted to the kind of formative support that building administrators can provide in the pursuit of student progress. Finally, Nash and Hwang elaborate on the whole decision-making process, and differentiate between the kind of independent and interdependent reflection that is part of the relentless pursuit of continuous improvement at the building level."

Educators know that teachers are a school's most essential strength. In Building Teachers' Capacity for Success, authors Pete Hall (winner of the 2004 ASCD Outstanding Young Educator Award) and Alisa Simeral offer a straightforward plan to help site-based administrators and instructional coaches collaborate to bring out the best in every teacher, build a stronger and more cohesive staff, and achieve greater academic success. Their model of Strength-Based School Improvement is an alternative to a negative, deficit-approach focused on fixing what's wrong. Instead, they show school leaders how to achieve their goals by working together to maximize what's right. Filled with clear, proven strategies and organized around two easy-to-use tools--the innovative Continuum of Self-Reflection and a feedback-focused walk-through model--this book offers a differentiated approach to coaching and supervision centered on identifying and nurturing teachers' individual strengths and helping them reach new levels of professional success and satisfaction. Here, you'll find front-line advice from the authors, one a principal and the other an instructional coach, on just what to look for, do, and say in order to start seeing positive results right now.

In 1988, the Chicago public school system decentralized, granting parents and communities significant resources and authority to reform their schools in dramatic ways. To track the effects of this bold experiment, the authors of Organizing Schools for Improvement collected a wealth of data on elementary schools in Chicago. Over a seven-year period they identified one hundred elementary schools that had substantially improved—and one hundred that had not. What did the successful schools do to accelerate student learning? The authors of this illuminating book identify a comprehensive set of practices and conditions that were key factors for improvement, including school leadership, the professional capacity of the faculty and staff, and a student-centered learning climate. In addition, they analyze the impact of social dynamics, including crime, critically examining the inextricable link between schools and their communities. Putting their data onto a more human scale, they also chronicle the stories of two neighboring schools with very different trajectories. The lessons gleaned from this groundbreaking study will be invaluable for anyone involved with urban education.
