Excellence in Teaching and Learning is a collaborative effort among education scholars that addresses the theory, practice, and policy gaps that have plagued classrooms for a long time. Divided into three parts, it focuses on practical strategies for teaching and learning in different subject areas and at all levels; provides research-based models for improving teacher quality; and addresses diversity within classrooms with regard to the requirements for achieving excellence. This book will interest teachers, teacher educators, administrators, and policy makers.

Editorial Reviews

Thomas G. Maridada
With the changes in accountability, I realized that the work of the principal would never be the same. This publication has confirmed that notion. Now, I know exactly what I need to do to move nearer to closing the achievement gap in my district—prepare teacher leaders.
Mary L. Otto
This practical and timely book offers useful information that challenges us all to rethink the educational models and experiences that teacher leaders, as well as traditional educational leaders, can benefit from while enrolled in college and university programs.
Dyanne M. Tracy
It is imperative that teacher preparation programs develop and then expect teachers to seek and accept leadership roles and responsibilities. [Contributors] Morehead and Sledge contend that teacher leaders are one requisite ingredient to slowing current and stopping future achievement gaps in our schools.
