Editorial Reviews

Jeremy Kahan
"Sullivan and Glanzarticulate a philosophy of supervision that puts student learning at the center, and puts the focus on talking about teaching (not teachers) in a deep and pragmatic way. The authors promote a vision of everyone in the school as a learner, and practical tools, steps, and wisdom to help schools realize that vision."
Zach Kelehear
"This book will certainly prove to be useful as a guide for instructional leaders in both their on-going professional development as well as their daily practice tomorrow. It is not often that we have a book that is well grounded in the theory of instructional leadership while also being practical in its possible applications."
