Editorial Reviews

Review

"Easy to read, practical, full of ideas with instant utility for the practitioner in the field, grounded in reality..." (David Brom, Principal 2004-10-26)

"...the author thoroughly examines her topic, often supporting her text with checklists, assessment tools, and recipe-like how-to instructions. No reader can fail to find this material useful." (Scott Hollinger, Principal 2004-10-18)

"(For)...a new principal with eyes wide open or a seasoned principal that can relive every scenario. If they have been 'in the trenches' they can see the reality written into every page...The seven habits of attitude and action will now be posted on the back of my office door."
(Carla Fry, Principal 2004-10-15)

"What a perfect tool for school principals . . . it is one of those books you will refer to again and again. [It] provides practical advice with examples of helpful scripts that can be used immediately, specifics on using assertive interventions with difficult teachers, 60 ways to inspire teachers to produce results, and case studies from experienced principals." (The School Administrator, December 2005 2005-12-01)

From the Back Cover

This resource offers case studies from principals who have successfully managed dysfunctional and low-performing teachers, scripts for achieving effective communication, and a culture-builder's toolkit with exercises and assessments.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Lynn B. Currier on July 6, 2007
Format: Paperback
McEwan's writing is very readable and her concrete advice is practical and easily applicable for those in charge of supervision and evaluation. This is not a dull textbook, but a guide to successfully confronting poor quality work with the goal of improving performance. The best piece of advice by far concerns inviting union leaders and representatives to be part of the process. Including all stakeholders is powerful and an example of how effective teaming can result in better teachers for all of our students.
The protocol for Assertive Interventions is easily adaptable to many situations and the advice concerning follow-up meetings and keeping written records invaluable. Suggested group activities are potentially powerful for Faculty Meeting agendas and/or Staff Development strands, especially activities about developing a set of ethical standards for all to be held accountable for following. This book is a tool supervisors will find user-friendly and truly valuable.

Very informative. I appreciate the examples that are given through out the book. The candid roundtable discussions from the principals are encouraging and thought provoking.
