At last we have a book that provides practical and constructive guidance for the walk-through. Rather then a device to humiliate teachers and generate confrontation, the protocols and practical advice in these pages will build bridges between teachers and administrators. With compelling examples, vivid detail, and impressive case studies, the authors offer vital assistance to teachers and administrators, from the most experienced veteran to the newest members of our profession. -- Douglas B. Reeves, chairman, The Leadership and Learning Center
