Learn how to promote teacher, student, and collective efficacy

Teachers are a school's greatest resource. Excellent teachers make excellent schools. Leading Impact Teams taps into the scheduled team planning time every school already has, and repurposes it in a model that provides the processes needed to build teacher expertise and increase student learning. The model combines two existing practices, formative assessment and collaborative inquiry, and promotes a school culture in which teachers and students are partners in learning. Readers will learn how to:

Build a culture of efficacyTake collective actionEmbed student-centered assessment in the classroom cultureClarify learning goals and criteria for successLeverage progressions of learning for "just right" instructionUtilize evidence-based feedbackMaximize peer and self-assessment in classroom practice

Presented in an easy-to-read, practical format, this book will help teachers build upon their strengths to create conditions where innovation and creativity thrive and where students can develop the belief in their capacity to learn.

"Leading Impact Teams offers a great blend of rationale, research, and doable application. What's unique and noteworthy in this book is its powerful set of collaborative protocols focused on evidence, analysis, and action that puts students at the center of the teaching and learning process."
Larry Ainsworth, Author of Common Formative Assessments 2.0: How Teacher Teams Intentionally Align Standards, Instruction, and Assessments

"Leading Impact Teams offers one of the most thoughtful, powerful, and purposeful books in a long time that holds the potential to both catalyze and transform educational systems.

This book is a must-read for educators and policy makers who are committed to bringing out the best in systems, students, and communities."

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Leading Impact Teams offers a great blend of rationale, research, and doable application. Effectively organized in a recurring format that includes the what, why, and how of the topic in focus, each chapter concludes with a nutshell summary, a check-in reader assessment and related implementation activity, along with teacher-voice tips and testimonials in print and video formats. What's unique and noteworthy in this book is its powerful set of collaborative protocols focused on evidence, analysis, and action that puts students at the center of the teaching and learning process. This clearly reflects the authors' stated ultimate goal: `for students to be able to independently assess their own learning.'" -- Larry Ainsworth, Author of Common Formative Assessments 2.0: How Teacher Teams Intentionally Align Standards, Instruction, and Assessments

Leading Impact Teams offers one of the most thoughtful, powerful, and purposeful books in a long time that holds the potential to both catalyze and transform educational systems. Through an immensely enjoyable read, Bloomberg and Pitchford provide an accessible and easy-to-follow roadmap to the complex journey of building efficacy and teams. This book is a must read for educators and policy makers who are committed to bringing out the best in systems, students, and communities." -- Alan J. Daly, Chair and Professor
