Transcript

  • 1. The Influence of Teachers: Reflections on Teaching and LeadershipBy: John Merrow<br />Book Review by: James Brauer<br />
  • 2. “The Widget Effect” found that 15,000 teachers evaluated were basically OUTSTANDING (Merrow, 2011, p. 48).<br />Read More at... JamesBrauer.com<br />
  • 3. “81% of administrators and 58% of teachers acknowledged their schools employed tenured teachers who weren’t performing adequately” (Merrow, 2011, p. 48).<br />Read More at... JamesBrauer.com<br />
  • 4. “Dal Lawrence says, ‘As long as you allow the old system with the boss or the foreman mentality, the teachers will step back and say, ‘Well, I’m not really responsible here’” (Merrow, 2011, p. 55).<br />Read More at... JamesBrauer.com<br />
  • 5. “The old command-and-control top down system got us to where we are,” Del Lawrence said, “And it’s not going to get out of it. It’s going to make the conditions just exactly like they were yesterday, and tomorrow they’re going to get worse” (Merrow, 2011, p. 60).<br />Read More at... JamesBrauer.com<br />
  • 6. “Test data invites oversimplification because it ignores the fact that students bring value (and baggage) to school, just as good teachers add value” (Merrow, 2011, p. 63).<br />Read More at... JamesBrauer.com<br />
  • 7. “If unions are telling us that there’s NO connection between teaching and learning, why support teachers, or public education for that matter” (Merrow, 2011, p. 64)?<br />Read More at... JamesBrauer.com<br />
  • 8. “Teachers shouldn’t have a problem with student performance scores being part of the evaluation equation, as long as the results allow them to examine and improve their own skills” (Merrow, 2011, p. 71).<br />Read More at... JamesBrauer.com<br />
