Editorial Reviews

Joanne Benton
Jacobs and Langley show administrators how to engage students and staff in creating a learning environment that is focused on achievement. [This book] is a great tool for busy administrators who want to direct their time toward supporting good instruction in their classrooms and less time toward issues of classroom management. This book urges teachers and administrators to become more efficient and focused leaders, but most importantly, the authors encourage us to be better educators for our students.
Amber Hutchison
Regardless of the experience, this book is an essential tool for any classroom teacher. Full of ideas from classroom arrangement to the importance of administrative support, this book is easy to follow and more importantly, provides ideas that are easy to apply in any classroom. Langley and Jacobs' book proves to be an invaluable teaching aid in helping teachers create a supportive and productive classroom environment for their students.
Delegate Chuck Caputo
The concept of shared roles in managing the educational environment couldn't make more sense. Yet often each player looks to the others as 'the' responsible party. Jacobs and Langley clearly define the roles of teacher, administrator, parent and community. The book is abundantly full of easy-to-implement ideas for making a difference in our children's classroom experience. A must-read for the whole community.
Lieu Ha Stoddart
A quick, straightforward, and exciting guide and a must-read for all teachers! Jacobs and Langley have written yet another book that captures practical skills of successful teaching.
