In this book, Dr. Fiszer helps reveal the benefits of dialogue between and among teachers. Teacher initiated conversations around student work are recommended to help teachers make deep connections with their practice and their colleagues at a school site. -- Joyce Burstein, assistant professor of Elementary Education, California State University, Northridge
In clear and understandable prose, Dr. Fiszer not only outlines the characteristics of successful staff development programs, but succinctly clarifies the research and justifications behind them. This combination addresses both "how" and "why" ongoing approaches work, and leaves the reader with both a lasting understanding of real issues and compelling reasons for change. -- Karin Aure Dixon, educational consultant
A reader friendly book with a clear call for change in the way professional development activities are conducted. It includes clear suggestions for moving from one shot workshops to a comprehensive model designed to build the capacity of teachers. -- Lisa Hutton, assistant professor of Elementary Education, California State University, Dominguez Hills
There is much talk about improving teaching but little information about how to make professional development activities relevant for the teachers who undertake them. Dr. Fiszer's book offers a wealth of suggestions on how to provide activities that can meet the needs of teachers and that can help them to improve their instructional capacities. -- Linda Rose, executive director, Educational Leadership Program, UCLA
As a principal himself, Dr. Fiszer has written a useful, practical, and well researched resource for principals and staff developers who want to support teachers in their efforts to improve student achievement. -- Robert Paull, associate dean for Education, Graduate School of Education and Psychology, Pepperdine University
Fiszer's book is a 'must read' for any educator attempting systematic change and school-wide reform with a focus on professional development. -- Roger Gallizzi, director of Personnel, Palmdale School District
