Overview

All New Real-Life Case Studies for Teachers is an up-to-date series of case studies or situations which can be used in both undergraduate and graduate teacher education classes, either as a main text or a supplementary text. In addition, it provides an excellent tool for in-service opportunities for experienced teachers at every level. Issues dealing with everything from the impact of the federal laws to choosing a graduate's first teaching job are included. Each situation outlines a problem that teachers could face at any level or in any subject matter. Case studies have proven to be an important element in the education of professionals in areas such as law, accounting, business, as well as in school administration. Using this teaching technique for future teachers can only enhance their education.

Editorial Reviews

Edward J. Sullivan
Real-life, contemporary issues form the basis of William Hayes's book, All New Real-Life Case Studies for Teachers. Those preparing to be twenty-first-century education leaders will benefit from Hayes's book, which develops skills and reinforces dispositions essential for being effective in today's schools. The cases are written with clarity and insight and are given in a storytelling style that makes each one quite interesting. The issues presented are compelling and relevant to what is occurring in schools. Thoughtful, open-ended questions and a list of resources for additional background accompany each case. I am recommending Hayes's book to my faculty.
R. Lloyd Jaeger
Evolving research about professional learning communities identifies the essential task of developing collaborative school cultures, which cultivate staff capacity for analyzing the data and factors that influence student learning within schools. William Hayes' case studies are great tools for simulating quality discourse and enhancing leaders' capacities to engage school colleagues in the collaborative surfacing of and discussion about local issues and data that can result in improved student learning.
Gregory C. Geer
The relevance of Hayes' choices of case studies in All New Real Life Case Studies for Teachers can not be overemphasized. The complex issues presented are written in a succinct yet compelling manner that presents the reader with a wide range of authentic contemporary school issues. As a recent school district superintendent and now as an assistant professor of educational leadership, I appreciate the flexibility inherent in this collection. This interesting book has applications ranging from use by the superintendent in board and leadership team development to serving as the subject of a book talk for professional development with staff or a parent-teacher organization. For education professors, it provides material that will spark discourse in any classroom concerning education. This is a book that spurs multifaceted reflection for anyone interested in schooling.
