Editorial Reviews

Marilyn Katzenmeyer
This book will energize teacher leaders who want to make a difference in their schools. Crocco and Brindley and the teacher contributors make the process of Action Research real, clear and doable. The thing I like most about this book is the authenticity of the teachers' voices in discussing their experiences. Teacher leaders, as well as their administrators, will benefit from the specific strategies and insights shared. Teachers need handy resources, and this book provides a wealth of them.
Ruth B. Reilly
This book tells the story of the power of teachers collaborating together to restructure the way of work within their school to address the complex issues that exist between their current reality and high levels of learning for all students. It gives us hope for what might be possible in any school when a visionary administration creates a culture of trust and empowerment.
Diane Yendol-Hoppey
This book provides powerful examples of how school-based educators introduce and come to embrace the practices of community and inquiry within their own schools. The authors, practicing teachers, principals, and university faculty, allow the reader to peak into their world, understand the felt difficulties of educators today, and glean important insights about how their schools become better places for children as a result of their systematic and intentional study.
