10 Models of Teacher Evaluation provokes deep reflection on the leadership and policies that lead to inclusive, collaborative teacher evaluation systems. Jungwirth and Silverberg examine how ten districts developed systems that valued and honored the craft of teaching and leading within the context of professional accountability. These district stories relate hopes for the future of teacher evaluation and lessons learned on their journey of design and implementation, leaving the reader with new insights into the creation of a culture of reflection, collaboration, continuous learning, self-directedness, and leadership. Breakthrough questions, grounded in each districts' experiences, bring heightened awareness to readers who would prepare cutting-edge appraisal systems for teachers and administrators. The timing was never better for this remarkable text. -- Linda Lambert, Ed.D., professor emeritus, California State University, East Bay. author of "The Constructivist Leader" and "Leadership Capacity for Lasting School Improvement"
Dr. Silverberg and Dr. Jungwirth's work is as timely as it is comprehensive, covering all the major facets of teacher evaluation. 10 Models of Teacher Evaluation will soon become the seminal reference point to build an assessment and evaluation program for faculty and staff. -- Michael A. Rossi, Ph.D., superintendent, Madison Public Schools, Madison, New Jersey
Teacher evaluation is one of those topics where there is often more heat than information. Dr. Silverberg and Dr. Jungwirth have provided a resource that is of inestimable value to those of us who need and want accurate information. The case studies are presented honestly and with clear focus. I have already made note of those to whom I will recommend this valuable volume. -- Ann Converse Shelly, executive secretary of the World Federation of Associations for Teacher Education; professor emerita, Ashland University
