Editorial Reviews

August 2007 Psyc CRITIQUES

"Presents a workbook-style blend of information about assessment, the change process, differentiated instruction, and other pedagogical approaches with strategies encouraging reflection, conversation, and research among groups of educators. The book is filled with inspirational quotes, thoughtful questions, and challenging directives to further encourage reader reflection. "

Lucianne B. Carmichael

"Presents staff, students, administrators and parents with a road map to a 'grand vision,' and invites us to join the highest of all human enterprises—the creating of a better world, starting with our schools. Provides every school staff the opportunity and tools to create a school engendering and affirming that deepest and most pervasive human drive, the drive to learn."

Brother Jeffrey L. Calligan

"Simply and beautifully weds theory and practice! This book should be on all administrators' desks as they go about the critical task of education for young people today. Brings forth the finest in theory and the best in practice and at the same time affirms the values that our society was built on and through which it will thrive. "

Lyn Sharratt

"This timely book is exactly what modern schools need, blending Fullan’s theoretical genius about change with practical strategies that can work in any school. Readers will discover that it is practical, easy to use, and empowering for educators, with lots of room for personal choices at the school level. "
