Teachers, their world, and their work : implications for school improvement by Ann Lieberman( Book )

11 editions published between 1984 and 1992 in English and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first chapter of this book, which deals with the world and work of teachers, themes are explored that capture the essential "dailiness" of working in schools, and a general description is given of what it is like to be a teacher. The cyclical rhythms and patterns of the school year are considered, as are the formal and informal guidelines used by teachers in their interactions with students and school personnel. The social realities of teaching in the elementary school are delineated in the second chapter. Case studies of two schools are presented to illuminate differences which may exist in school climates. Chapter 3 points out the sharp difference between teaching at the elementary and secondary school school. Major themes in discussing secondary level teaching include living in a bureaucracy, working with adolescents, and the faculty culture. The problems inherent in relationships between teachers and principals and the responsibilities of leadership are discussed in the fourth chapter. In the fifth chapter, descriptions of school improvement efforts are analyzed. The final chapter explores fundamental realities and needs to be considered in improving inservice teacher education, and the roles of teachers and administrators in these endeavors. (Jd)

Teacher leadership by Ann Lieberman( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Teacher Leadership, Lieberman and Miller discuss current changes in the teacher's role, and make sense of the research on teacher leadership. They offer case studies of innovative programs - such as the National Writing Project - that provide teachers with opportunities to lead within a professional community. In addition, they tell stories of individual teachers - from Maine to California - who are able to lead in a variety of contexts." "Teacher Leadership offers a new standard of teaching and community that recognizes all teachers as leaders. It shows how to develop learning communities that include rather than exclude, create knowledge rather than merely apply it, and that offer challenge and support to both new and experienced teachers."--Jacket

11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Teachers are the most important single element of the education system but what does it take to create high quality teachers in today's world? Around the world, countries are struggling to understand how to change their schools to meet global demands. International comparisons have shown that schools in Finland lead the league tables, but why is this, what new policies and practices in teacher education have they developed and how do they support the changes? A number of European and Asian countries also top the list when it comes to providing high quality teacher education, but there is little information about what and how they are doing the work and how they have made changes. The leading international contributors to this book describe the systemic policies and practices of teacher education in eight high-achieving countries and how they are dealing with teacher quality, equity, and the changing global society. Among the countries that are doing well - Finland, Singapore, the Netherlands, the UK, Hong Kong, Canada, Australia and the USA - there is an interesting diversity of policies and practices that support their changes in education, including: - emphasis on the preparation, induction, support and assessment of new teachers - focus on teacher retention, teachers' professional knowledge and continuing professional development - curriculum change and critical policies"--
