Description

The world's workforce will change
significantly in the coming decades. Today's students need teachers to prepare
them to thrive in a constantly changing world. In turn, teachers need
leadership that encourages them to grow in their practice.


Leadership for Teacher Learning explores the correlation between teacher quality and
student achievement. Drawing from evidence-based research findings,
distinguished author and leading formative assessment authority Dylan Wiliam
clearly and concisely explains how formative assessment, when applied properly,
helps create a structured and rigorous learning environment that increases
student achievement. He also presents compelling research to give readers a
clear picture of:



  • which changes in classroom practice are
    most likely to impact student achievement

  • formative assessment's use in
    differentiated instruction (DI) and response to intervention (RTI)

  • how to select and support group leaders to
    ensure productive collaboration

  • strategies to integrate formative assessment
    into teacher evaluation


Tackling many of the toughest questions faced by school and wider
leadership, Wiliam discusses why efforts to change classroom practice have been
relatively unsuccessful. He then explores specific classroom tactics that tend
to raise student achievement, illustrating how significantly a teacher's work
impacts student learning.
