Product Description: `At last we have a book that realistically, empathically, and interestingly describes leadership and the professional development work that needs to accompany it--for principals. It is all here: readings, web sites, theory, practice, helpful forms to use, vignettes of principals. Lindstrom and Speck are both 'insiders' and 'outsiders' teaching us in the best of ways how to both think about and act on our new knowledge!' - Ann Lieberman, Senior Scholar Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching

Research shows conclusively that teacher variability is the most important factor in determining student achievement. And headteachers are the educators who are in the best position to provide teachers with the professional development tools they need to improve their skills and raise student achievement.

The book is organized around the four roles that a headteacher must fulfill in order to cultivate quality: builder, designer, implementer, and reflective leader. Aligned with the National Staff Development Council's Standards for Staff Development, this book is full of user-friendly, practical tools, including rubrics, worksheets, professional development planners, sample forms for classroom visits and observations, calendars of professional development activities, surveys, evaluation plans, recommended readings and websites, and reflective questions. Vignettes, examples, and other illustrative material grounds the work in the high-stakes accountability world that principals find themselves in.

This book will take headteachers through a step-by-step process to develop, implement, and evaluate individual and school professional development plans. The authors show headteachers how to analyze student achievement data and how to develop and evaluate professional development plans based on the data.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
