Academic conferences increase collaboration and support collegial dialogue between teachers, principals, and district administrators, while providing a forum for education professionals to consider school practices old and new, and plan ways to best utilize them all in the future. This book, by experienced educators Eli Johnson and Arthur L. Costa, is about encouraging and enhancing these necessary, but often neglected, conversations as a means of helping educators identify the ways that innovative teaching strategies can best connect positive classroom outcomes to the long-term plans, learning goals, and academic purposes of a school and district.
Academic Conferences for School and Teacher Leaders proves an invaluable tool for educators and educational administrators who are tasked with the toughest decisions facing our struggling school system today, and is an ideal fit for courses in educational leadership and supervision of instruction. When structured effectively, academic conferences can transform schools and help educational leaders mine the excellence of every student in their classrooms, and this book is a necessary guide for any leader whose goal is to do just that.
