The Internal Coherence Framework presents a system of research-based practices for assessing and developing the conditions that support adult and student learning in schools. Internal coherence is defined as the ability of educators in a school or system to connect and align resources to carry out an improvement strategy, engage in collective learning, and use that learning to provide students with richer educational opportunities. The internal coherence framework featured in the book brings together three important domains of research: leadership for learning, organizational improvement, and instructional efficacy. School or system leaders who progress through this book with colleagues will develop a shared vision for ambitious teaching and learning anchored in the instructional core; organize the work of the leadership and teacher teams to advance this vision; and build psychologically safe team, school, and system cultures to support the risk taking and constructive challenges necessary to move schools or systems to the next level of performance. At the heart of the book is a survey and rubric that can help schools better understand their strengths and weaknesses and the kinds of resources they need to support student learning. The book blends theory and practice to bring tested wisdom to bear on critical issues of education leadership and professional learning.

How Leaders Learn portrays the developmental experiences of educators seeking to become accomplished leaders in their schools. The author presents a new model of leadership knowledgethe Interpersonal-Cognitive-Intrapersonal Model (I-C-I). Through the stories of teacher leaders and administrators who participated in the I-C-I leadership development programs, the author depicts the evolution of understanding, skill, and self-confidence. These learners grapple with questions essential to all effective leadership: Does my leadership generate improved learning for the students in my school? What are my greatest assets as a leader? What are my greatest liabilities and what do I do about them? Can I find a leadership role that is both productive and sustainable for me and for the school I serve?

In 1988, the Chicago public school system decentralized, granting parents and communities significant resources and authority to reform their schools in dramatic ways. To track the effects of this bold experiment, the authors of Organizing Schools for Improvement collected a wealth of data on elementary schools in Chicago. Over a seven-year period they identified one hundred elementary schools that had substantially improved—and one hundred that had not. What did the successful schools do to accelerate student learning? The authors of this illuminating book identify a comprehensive set of practices and conditions that were key factors for improvement, including school leadership, the professional capacity of the faculty and staff, and a student-centered learning climate. In addition, they analyze the impact of social dynamics, including crime, critically examining the inextricable link between schools and their communities. Putting their data onto a more human scale, they also chronicle the stories of two neighboring schools with very different trajectories. The lessons gleaned from this groundbreaking study will be invaluable for anyone involved with urban education.

How to Create the Conditions for Learning shows how the conditions for continuously improving instruction can be created at every level, from the classroom to the school to the central office. Ann Jaquith describes four types of instructional resources--knowledge, technology, relationships, and structures--and discusses the contextual conditions that allow these resources to be identified, taken up, and put to effective use. Case studies of schools and districts highlight how leaders can identify and deploy underutilized resources and create organizational routines that support the ongoing development of instructional capacity. The book represents an important contribution to the effort to stimulate, support, and sustain excellent teaching and inspired learning in our schools. "Ann Jaquith's instructional capacity building framework has taken our district to a deeper level of implementation, guiding how we create conditions of learning for teachers, principals, and district staff so they can in turn create optimal conditions for learning for students." --Diann Kitamura, superintendent, Santa Rosa City Schools "Drawing on real-life examples, this insightful book provides richly detailed and specific strategies for teachers, principals, superintendents (even researchers) concerned with improving learning opportunities for students and staff in any school." --Leslie Santee Siskin, research professor, New York University Steinhardt "How to Create the Conditions for Learning is essential reading for all educators determined to create and sustain a culture that continuously enriches the working conditions necessary to support efforts to improve teaching and learning." --Marcia G. Trott, Improving Teacher Quality State Grants Program administrator, California Department of Education "Ann Jaquith's framework for instructional capacity building is at once theoretically sound and immensely practical and will help leaders identify and use an array of resources for instructional improvement. A terrific book for everyone concerned with improving instruction." --Pam Grossman, dean, Graduate School of Education, University of Pennsylvania Ann Jaquith is the associate director of the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education.

Research shows that by spending time on just a few high-payoff strategies, leaders can bring about the meaningful change their schools and districts need.

Drawing on the latest research as well as hundreds of interviews with education leaders, High-Payoff Strategies reveals what it really takes to bring about school turnaround. The book includes rich and varied examples showing how real-world education leaders—in urban, suburban, and rural settings—have successfully led changes in their schools and districts. It also provides tools that readers can use immediately to put these practices in place, together with videos demonstrating the practices in action.

Teaching in Context provides new evidence from a range of leading scholars showing that teachers become more effective when they work in organizations that support them in comprehensive and coordinated ways. The studies featured in the book suggest an alternative approach to enhancing teacher quality: creating conditions and school structures that facilitate the transmission and sharing of knowledge among teachers, allowing teachers to work together effectively, and capitalizing on what we know about how educators learn and improve. The studies also show how social dynamics influence the speed, depth, and success with which any new idea is implemented, and how policies enacted without adequate consideration of their impact on the social fabric of schools can produce unintended negative consequences. Policies aimed at improving teaching should focus on strengthening the organization as a whole so that all teachers are likely to improve. The chapters in this book point to the need to reevaluate current policies for assessing and ensuring teacher effectiveness, and establish the foundation for a more thoughtful, research-informed approach.

Rethinking Readiness offers a new set of competencies to replace the narrow learning goals of No Child Left Behind and, in chapters written by some of the nation's most well-respected education scholars, explores their implications for schools. Today's students must cultivate the full range of intellectual, interpersonal, and intrapersonal capacities that have been grouped together under the banner of "deeper learning." Rethinking Readiness focuses on how educators and policy makers should move forward to provide the educational experiences that students need to become truly well prepared for college, careers, and civic life, including changes in curriculum, teacher evaluation, and student assessment. As state leaders chart a new course for K-12 education in the Every Student Succeeds Act era, Rethinking Readiness offers a succinct and compelling vision for a new agenda for school reform so future generations can prosper in a rapidly changing world.
