And yet administrators still need to find methods to implement new instructional initiatives, such as the Common Core State Standards. This important book provides leaders with a high quality professional development approach at a low cost—the Peer Observation Process. Outlined in manageable steps, this strategy will help leaders implement any new school initiative or instructional method, no matter the context.

This book will help you:

-Support staff with job-embedded learning that includes reflection and feedback

-Get your staff excited and engage them in ongoing collaboration
