Bringing Out the Best in Teachers: What Effective Principals Do. Second Edition.
Blase, Joseph; Kirby, Peggy C.
This book describes the strategies and related practices employed by open and effective principals to enhance teachers and their work with students. Principals' goals in using the strategies and the specific consequences for teachers are fully described. Each chapter closes with a set of guidelines for the reader's consideration. The book describes principals whose dynamic leadership has had remarkably positive effects on teachers and on students as well. It describes these principals as seen through the eyes of teachers. The book shows what happens when school principals work to create open, honest, and sincere relationships with teachers. By using the strategies discussed in the book, the intent is to create school environments that focus on the social and educational welfare of students. Such schools are possible because they bring out the best in teachers. Research methods and procedures are contained in a resources section. (DFR)
