A Summing Up :
Teaching and Learning in Effective Schools and PLCs at Work®

Robert Eaker

After a career spanning nearly half a century, Dr Robert Eaker – educator, researcher, consultant and architect of the Professional Learning Communities at Work® (PLC at Work) process – has gathered his insights and knowledge regarding the improvement of schools, teaching and student learning into his autobiographical work. In A Summing Up: Teaching and Learning in Effective Schools and PLCs at Work®, Dr Eaker tells the story of his career in education and, in the process, provides a guide full of real-world advice.

As Dr Eaker states, this book is his reflection on how to create the kinds of schools and classrooms for all kids that we would want for our own children. He reflects on the various stages of his education career, including turning research into practice, shifting focus from teaching to learning, studying the effects of teachers’ interpersonal behaviours and participating in the effective schools movement. He shares a personal history of the foundation of the PLC process and the development of the concepts and practices necessary for successful PLC implementation. Finally, he emphasises the importance of passion and persistence in leadership, describing through his experiences how these qualities make leaders great.

Picture of the productAdventures in Teacher Leadership
Adventures in Teacher Leadership

By Rebecca Mieliwocki, Joseph Fatheree

Have you ever imagined yourself as a teacher leader but weren't quite sure whether you really had – or could develop – the necessary skills? Have you wondered what the first steps toward becoming a teacher leader might be, what kinds of approaches work best and how you could overcome the inevitable challenges that come with leading your colleagues on a journey toward improvement as professionals?

Authors Rebecca Mieliwocki (California and National Teacher of the Year for 2012) and Joseph Fatheree (Illinois Teacher of the Year for 2007) answer these questions and more in this engaging guide to becoming a successful teacher leader. Organised around five key tools – communication, collaboration, professional development, data and advocacy – the book covers every aspect of what is involved in taking on leadership responsibilities. Firsthand accounts of the authors' experiences and those of more than a dozen other State Teachers of the Year describe the various pathways to leadership, strategies for success and pitfalls to avoid. These teacher voices add powerful credibility to the research on teacher leadership and show how leaders can not only improve their schools and districts but also influence state and national policies and practices.

Both informative and inspiring, Adventures in Teacher Leadership invites others to expand their professional reach, empower the profession of teaching and, ultimately, make a big difference in the lives of students everywhere.
