Education has changed dramatically over the past few decades and it is good to know that research based best practices that are described in this book are relevant to today's schools.

For educators, from educators who know schools, teaching and learning. The Individualized Intervention Strategy System (IISS) is a communication tool for leaders, supervisors AND teachers, who often don't know what supervisors are expecting to see in their classrooms. It is a roadmap that can lead to more highly effective teaching, at any level. These strategies can enhance teaching effectiveness, both individually and in professional development groups. The book speaks to the heart of improving learning for all students. Get it today, use it tomorrow. -- Sally Miller, PhD, West Lafayette Community School Corporation, West Lafayette, Indiana
Enhancing Teacher Performance is an important book in our ongoing conversation about the "problems " in our schools. Most of the literature on school improvement focuses on learning, student performance, teacher credentials, and training. On the other hand, much of American business has understood Peter Drucker's dictum that leadership and culture are pivotal to the success of any organization but we educators have passed over these important concepts. Enhancing Teacher Performance argues that the school environment textured by outstanding leadership is the major driving force in school improvement. The authors do not believe leadership is simply management but is a caring that demands a "head and heart." This is a leadership of communication, accountability, listening, and authenticity. In an age when our colleagues in leadership too often draw success in jumping from one solution to another every two or three years, these authors warn against the " tyranny of [ the] immediate..." Enhancing Teacher Performance is refreshing and opens us to new point of view for student success: the culture and the leadership are the cornerstone of student success. -- Peter Bittel, Ed.D., CEO, Futures HealthCorp
Acknowledging that it is often difficult to lead in the midst of complex tensions and crises, Enhancing Teacher Performance provides foundational principles, insightful guidelines, and practical suggestions as to how to best handle common situations such as handling complaints, building teacher motivation, and dealing with the problematic teacher. At the end of each chapter, the authors provide thought-provoking questions that can be used for self-reflection and classroom discussion. The text is not a series of unrelated chapters, but rather is an integrated guide wherein each chapter connects to previous sections and builds a holistic, relational approach culminating in specific individualized intervention strategies linked to some of the most common teacher problems. Enhancing Teacher Performance will prove to be an invaluable resource to anyone committed to improving their school. -- James A. Swezey, associate professor of education, Liberty University, Lynchburg, VA
