Given the current economic climate and budget constraints facing schools, funding for professional development is continually reduced. And yet administrators still need to find methods to implement new instructional initiatives, such as the Common Core State Standards. This important book provides leaders with a high quality professional development approach at a low cost-the Peer Observation Process. Outlined in manageable steps, this strategy will help leaders implement any new school initiative or instructional method, no matter the context.

This book will help you:

-Support staff with job-embedded learning that includes reflection and feedback

-Get your staff excited and engage them in ongoing collaboration

-Create teams and organize schedules

-Initiate and deliver tough conversations

-Address accountability and measure success

Based on an established and successful program, this book outlines an effective approach that is easy to implement and will help schools increase student achievement, strengthen school culture, and improve job satisfaction.

"In this timely and important book, Beck, D'Elia, and Lamond provide powerful evidence and practical solutions for the improvement of teaching. Most importantly, this is one of the very few books about teaching practices that draw a direct link between the strategies recommended and the impact on student achievement. "

--Douglas Reeves, Ph.D., The Center for Successful Leadership

"I am honored to provide this full-throated endorsement of Easy and Effective Professional Development in which the authors provide educators with a clear road map for improving student achievement via a pragmatic teacher professional-development process that reliably improves teaching! ... Structured peer feedback using the tactics described by Beck et al is a brilliant example of what noted school change expert Michael Fullan calls `organized common sense.'"

--From the foreword by Kevin Feldman, Ed.D., Emeritus Director of Reading & Intervention, Sonoma County Schools, and Independent Educational Consultant
