Accountability for learning how teachers and school leaders can take charge by Douglas B Reeves( )
8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2,525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Accountability. The very mention of the word strikes fear in the hearts of many teachers and school leaders, leading to confusion and panic rather than improved student achievement. Author Douglas B. Reeves explains how to transform accountability from destructive and demoralizing accounting drills into a constructive decision-making process that improves teaching, learning, and leadership. Reeves encourages educators to become proactive in developing student-centered accountability systems. These systems capture the many aspects of teaching that test scores don't reveal-they tell the stories behind the numbers. Reeves shows how educators can create accountability systems that enhance teacher motivation and lead to significant improvements in student achievement and equity, even in traditionally low-performing schools. Accountability for Learning explains how to build a student-centered accountability system by examining key indicators in teaching, leadership, curriculum, and parent and community involvement. Focusing on the classroom, it outlines how teachers can become leaders in accountability by using a four-step process of observation, reflection, synthesis, and replication of effective teaching practices. Finally, the author discusses the role of local, state, and federal policymakers and corrects the myths associated with No Child Left Behind. "As educators, we have two choices," Reeves says. "We can rail against the system, hoping that standards and testing are a passing fad, or we can lead the way in a fundamental reformulation of educational accountability." Accountability for Learning gives readers the helping hand they need to lead the way to fair and comprehensive accountability. Douglas B. Reeves leads the Center for Performance Assessment, and international organization dedicated to improving student achievement and educational equity. He is the author of 17 books, including the best-selling Making Standards Work

The technology fix the promise and reality of computers in our schools by William D Pflaum( )
5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2,283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the technology boom of the 1980s and 1990s, computers seemed set to revolutionize education. Do any of these promises sound familiar? . Technology would help all students learn better, thanks to multimedia programs capable of adapting to individual needs, learning styles, and skill levels. . Technology would transform the teacher's role from a purveyor of a one-size-fits-all curriculum to a facilitator of student exploration. . Technology would replace textbooks with dynamic, interactive learning resources that were always up-to-date. . Technology would boost test scores, as engaged and motivated students acquired advanced skills, problem-solving abilities, and a growing thirst for knowledge. By 2001, educational materials developer William D. Pflaum had begun to suspect that technology was not the all-purpose solution it had seemed. Deciding to see how computers were really being used in U.S. classrooms, he embarked on a yearlong road trip to a cross-section of schools throughout the nation. In this book, he recounts his journey. Although he did find technology application to admire, too often he found broken promises: millions spent for little measurable gain, problems instead of solutions, a fix instead of a fix. This inside look at computer use in our schools shares the voices, experiences, triumphs, and frustrations of educators and students in urban, rural, and suburban settings. The author provides insight into the key roles that computers play in the classroom and clarifies what we must do to ensure that the promise of technology is fulfilled . . . and that students truly benefit
Building leadership capacity in schools by Linda Lambert( )
8 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 2,251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this book, Linda Lambert takes a close look at leadership in schools, which today involves far more than a single leader. The author defines leadership as the learning processes among participants in a community -- processes that lead toward a shared sense of purpose. Leadership capacity refers to the breadth of participation in leadership and the depth of skill that teachers, administrators, parents, students, and community members bring to the work. The stories of three schools -- an elementary school with low leadership capacity, a middle school with moderate leadership capacity, and a high school with high leadership capacity-reveal how school people can lead their communities to improve student learning. The stories show five features of effective leadership: (1) broad-based, skillful participation in the work of leadership, (2) inquiry-based use of information to inform decisions and practice, (3) roles and responsibilities that reflect broad involvement and collaboration, (4) reflective practice/innovation as a norm, and (5) high student achievement. This book outlines what schools and districts must do to build leadership capacity, including how to get started, how to sustain the momentum, and how to design school districts capable of supporting such work.
