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.

Helps with the language choices in having those difficult conversations. As a head teacher it was a very good resource.
