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. Its usefulness for and use by, classroom teachers to evaluate their practice will prove to be its greatest strength in an ever expanding effectiveness literature.

Written for heads and teachers, this forward-thinking book examines exactly what the relationship between inspection and self-evaluation means for schools and explores some of the underpinning issues, featuring examples of best practice from successful schools. It is full of useful advice on topics such as how schools can juggle ongoing self-evaluation with OFSTED’s expectations, how to use web sources to best advantage and what can be learnt from experience to lessen the anxiety in the relationship and make it more of a friendly and formative experience for all parties. Drawing on case studies from primary, secondary and special schools, this all-round overview should be of immediate interest to practitioners while also offering students and aspiring heads and teachers a valuable source of detailed information about the processes of inspection and self-assessment.

In a political and economic climate in which school performance is made public, performance tables and inspectors' reports can only tell a partial story. This is a unique book. It tells the story of one school seen through the eyes of a pupil, a parent, a teacher, a headteacher and a critical friend. The story is a compelling journey through the process of school improvement; theories of school effectiveness and school improvement are progressively clarified. This book is based on a well-known and well-documented research project that represents eighteen European countries, which clearly sets it in a European Policy context. It includes a wealth of practical tools for raising standards for teachers and school managers to refer to, and guidance on how to use them. This eagerly awaited follow-up to Schools Must Speak for Themselves by John MacBeath (RoutledgeFalmer 1999) is a vital and useful source of good ideas, challenging insights and practical strategies for real schools.

Through real-life single and multiple case studies, Learning to Lead Together addresses how principals and their staffs struggle with the challenge of shared leadership, how they encourage teacher growth and development, and how shared leadership can lead to higher levels of student learning. The cases show how shared leadership, a powerful adaptive change, is socially constructed across contexts and evolves as teachers and principals learn how to work together. The book also illustrates how principal preparation and professional development programs that utilize problem-based learning and provide opportunities for genuine collaboration with colleagues can provide school leaders with the skills they need to share leadership and accountability effectively.

Teachers may be surrounded by feedback and involved in it every day, but the notion is poorly analysed and poorly used. Feedback for Learning provides an important collection of contributions to the highly topical theme of feedback to support learning. The book spans three major areas which affect all teachers: *young people's learning *teachers' learning *organisational learning. The authors critically examine the assumption that feedback necessarily has positive learning outcomes and describe models and practices which are more likely to result in effective learning at the individual, group and organisational level.

First released in the Spring of 1999, How People Learn has been expanded to show how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and practice, now making a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning. Like the original edition, this book offers exciting new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from non-experts? What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods--to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. Topics include: How learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain. How existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn. What the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach. The amazing learning potential of infants. The relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace. Learning needs and opportunities for teachers. A realistic look at the role of technology in education.

This edited text provides an international perspective on leadership and management roles and their relationship to improvement within educational institutions. The interactions of educational institutions are examined at local, national and global levels with case studies and examples being drawn from many countries in Europe, Asia and Africa. Two main themes are explored. The first is the move to site based management for educational institutions, linked to improvement. The second investigates the idea of learning for all and explores the ways in which leadership and management can contribute towards the development and enhancement of student learning, staff development and institutional growth. The authors, who are mainly drawn from the Institute of Education, University of London, make full use of the whole range of international literature relating to educational leadership, management and administration providing a textbook for masters-level students.

Los centros escolares y el profesorado se constituyeron, desde mediados de los años setenta del siglo XX, en dos nuevos ámbitos de evaluación. En su emergencia tuvo una influencia decisiva el movimiento de la accountability, o rendición de cuentas, que en el contexto anglosajón propició la obligación de que las instituciones educativas informaran periódicamente a la comunidad de sus logros y resultados, haciendo realidad el “derecho a saber”. A su implantación y desarrollo contribuyeron en gran medida las políticas educativas que abordaron, en los años noventa, la reforma de los sistemas educativos de cara a afrontar la mejora de su calidad. En el contexto de estas nuevas exigencias y condiciones, no cabe duda que la teoría y práctica de la evaluación institucional y de los docentes han ido adquiriendo un protagonismo estelar, como base sobre la que sustentar y legitimar las directrices de las políticas educativas que a nivel nacional se ponen en juego, para fundamentar las decisiones que necesitan tomarse en la conducción de los sistemas educativos, o para proveer a los centros y profesores de herramientas y datos que, además de facilitarles el conocimiento de sus quehaceres, les permitan profundizar en sus desarrollos institucional y profesional. A través de diez temas se hace un recorrido por los contenidos más relevantes del estado actual de estos dos ámbitos de evaluación. En una primera parte, temas 1 y 2, se analiza la conformación de este campo profesional de estudio e investigación y se clarifican sus bases teórico-conceptuales y los presupuestos de las distintas tradiciones científicas que fundamentan las diferentes propuestas y modelos de evaluación de centros y profesores. Las partes segunda y tercera están dedicadas monográficamente al estudio de cada uno de los ámbitos. Tanto en los centros, temas del 3 al 6, como en el profesorado, temas del 7 al 10, se empieza con la presentación de las orientaciones y perspectivas desde las que se pueden abordar la evaluación, y se finaliza con las características y experiencias de la evaluación institucional y del profesorado en el contexto universitario.
