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."
Judy Bruner
“Sullivan and Glanz do an excellent job of presenting information in a format that is user friendly, succinct, practical, and applicable to the job of school supervision. This book provides critically important information for aspiring, newly appointed, or veteran school administrators.”
Christy M. Moroye
“This is a great marriage of theory and practice.”
