Overview

For the first time, school districts around the country are being required to adopt formal accountability measures to assess teacher effectiveness. In a radical shift, teacher quality will be based on outputs (student achievement; teacher observations) rather than inputs (years of service; degrees attained). This change in school culture and practice is an attempt to improve everything from individual student learning to national economic competitiveness. It also requires that administrators implement new and rigorous teacher evaluation programs that align with state and federal guidelines.

Busy administrators lack the training and experience necessary to quickly and efficiently craft a teacher evaluation system that successfully meets the needs of their district. Questions like “What is the best program for my district?” or “How do I get the teachers on-board?” are being asked by school leaders across the country. This book provides real-world answers by highlighting 10 diverse model programs from around the country.

Editorial Reviews

Linda Lambert
10 Models of Teacher Evaluation provokes deep reflection on the leadership and policies that lead to inclusive, collaborative teacher evaluation systems. Jungwirth and Silverberg examine how ten districts developed systems that valued and honored the craft of teaching and leading within the context of professional accountability. These district stories relate hopes for the future of teacher evaluation and lessons learned on their journey of design and implementation, leaving the reader with new insights into the creation of a culture of reflection, collaboration, continuous learning, self-directedness, and leadership. Breakthrough questions, grounded in each districts’ experiences, bring heightened awareness to readers who would prepare cutting-edge appraisal systems for teachers and administrators. The timing was never better for this remarkable text.
Michael A. Rossi
Dr. Silverberg and Dr. Jungwirth’s work is as timely as it is comprehensive, covering all the major facets of teacher evaluation. 10 Models of Teacher Evaluation will soon become the seminal reference point to build an assessment and evaluation program for faculty and staff.
Ann Converse Shelly
Teacher evaluation is one of those topics where there is often more heat than information. Dr. Silverberg and Dr. Jungwirth have provided a resource that is of inestimable value to those of us who need and want accurate information. The case studies are presented honestly and with clear focus. I have already made note of those to whom I will recommend this valuable volume.
