The following chapters are included: (1) Introduction; (2) Principal as Instructional Leader; (3) Emphasis on Basic Skills Acquisition; (4) Positive School Climate; (5) High Teacher and Administrator Efficacy; (6) Monitoring Students' Progress; (7) Applying Effective Schools Information to the Instruction of LEP Students; (8) Administering Supplemental Instructional Programs: The Pull-Out Problem.
