Since getting a copy of the book, I have used DESK in working with a low performing teacher and the meeting was very satisfying to both of us.
I have worked with Dr. Pilcher and Dr. Large over many years and have always found them to be down to earth, straight forward, and realistic. These two educators do not live in "Ivory Towers." They have real experiences in schools, working with teachers and administrators and they have written a very helpful, practical guide to helping educators help each other to improve. Their realistic approach is so refreshing and amazingly easy to implement.
I recommend this book for traditional educators as well as teachers, instructors, or trainers in the private sector, military, and government arenas.
