    Self-Evaluation in European Schools: A Story of Change

    Description:
    In a political and economic climate in which school performance is made public, performance tables and inspectors' reports can only tell a partial story. It is futile for teachers to complain that they are misrepresented. Self-critical and self-confidentschools are information rich. They know how to tell their story for themselves and they welcome the external account as another source of evidence, another view on policy and practice. This book illustrates how schools can tell their own story. It draws on ground breaking work with the National Union of Teachers to demonstrate a practical approach to identifying what makes a good school and the part that pupils, parents and teachers can play in school improvement. This eagerly awaited European follow-up to Schools Must Speak for Themselves by John MacBeath (Routledge 1999) provides case-studies, step-by-step guidance and brave new teacher-friendly thinking.

      Description: More than ever, schools are regarded as a learning community in which its leaders, and therefore the school's primary agents of change, are expected to stay abreast of the latest developments in education and instruction. This book provides important insights for improving professional development activities, school-university partnerships and networks, educational management, as well as teaching and learning in schools and colleges. It builds on research conducted in the 1990s, during which the pursuit of school improvement and skill development first converged.

      Description: Schools are places of learning but they are also workplaces, and teachers are employees. As such, are teachers more akin to professionals or to factory workers in the amount of control they have over their work? And what difference does it make? Drawing on large national surveys as well as wide-ranging interviews with high school teachers and administrators, Richard Ingersoll reveals the shortcomings in the two opposing viewpoints that dominate thought on this subject: that schools are too decentralized and lack adequate control and accountability; and that schools are too centralized, giving teachers too little autonomy. Both views, he shows, overlook one of the most important parts of teachers' work: schools are not simply organizations engineered to deliver academic instruction to students, as measured by test scores; schools and teachers also play a large part in the social and behavioral development of our children. As a result, both views overlook the power of...
      Download Making the Grade: Reinventing America's Schools - Tony Wagner
      Description: Making the Grade represents the beginning of an overdue public dialogue: How can today's schools - and schools of the future - respond to sweeping societal changes if they remain mired in an obsolete system. What should all students know in the 21st century, and who should decide? What do good schools - where all children learn - look like, and how do they involve parents and motivate students and teachers to do their best? In this thorough and informative book, Wagner considers whether schools should teach values and what roles tests should play in the system. His surprising answers to these questions lay the groundwork for a strategy to reinvent the public school. The prototype he introduces, the "New Village School," is organized around "the 4C's": competency-based curriculum, core values, collaboration and community. Wagner outlines ways that communities, government, teachers, parents, and students can begin a dialogue about how to enact meaningful school changes -...
