Based on a comprehensive description of how instructional supervision is actually practised and how it affects teachers, the authors' research shows effective instructional supervision to have such positive impacts on teaching and learning (and the lack of it to have such negative impacts) that no-one who reads this book will be able to justify the relegation of instructional leadership to the margins of educational administration.

"Should be read by all practicing principals! An extraordinarily perceptive account of how a principal can influence teachers and make an impact on school culture."(Richard R. Tranter)
"A treasure trove of knowledge about instructional leadership. Rich descriptions bring to life such concepts as inquiry, reflection, collaboration, empowerment, and learning community. The authors enable the reader to encounter the spirit of schools where these ideas have become a reality."(Stephen P. Gordon) About the Author:
