This book is intended to help instructional leaders replace old norms of isolationism that have kept instructional decision-making the private domain of individual teachers. It will help instructional leaders to recognize the characteristics of effective standards-based instruction and to help their colleagues incorporate these characteristics into their own practice and the collective practice of their schools.
