From the Back Cover:

This inspiring book examines the emerging roles of teachers whose classrooms reflect a rapidly changing society. The authors describe the qualities teachers need in order to adapt and become more successful in the classroom. They must be content and pedagogical experts in creating constructivist classrooms; see themselves as professionals making a commitment to professional behaviors; facilitate conditions for student learning; challenge students' thinking through appropriate questioning strategies; extend the classroom into the community and bring the community into the classroom; and become a change agent, advocating for school reform within the school, in the community, and in the seats of government. All teachers are capable of expanding their skills in order to achieve these goals, the authors contend, regardless of community support, financial resources, or preparation and training. Using information gathered from careful studies of working teachers, they provide a portrait of an emerging "dynamic teacher", illustrating how these educators differ from their colleagues. They highlight the reasons why such differences are essential to the success of schooling in the future and offer concrete suggestions for how practicing teachers can begin their own journey to becoming a "dynamic teacher".

About the Author:

Sharon F. Rallis is Dwight W. Allen Distinguished Professor of Education Policy and Reform at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Previously, she was professor of education at the University of Connecticut; lecturer on education at Harvard; and associate professor of educational leadership at Peabody College, Vanderbilt University. Her doctorate is from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. She has coauthored numerous books, including several on leadership: Principals of Dynamic Schools: Taking Charge of Change (with Ellen Goldring); Dynamic Teachers: Leaders of Change (with Gretchen Rossman); Leading Dynamic Schools: How to Create and Implement Ethical Policies (with Gretchen Rossman and others); and Leading With Inquiry and Action: How Principals Improve Teaching and Learning (with Matthew Militello and Ellen Goldring). Her numerous articles, book chapters, edited volumes, and technical reports address issues of research and evaluation methodology, ethical practice in research and evaluation, education policy and leadership, and school reform.

A past-president of the American Evaluation Association (2005) and current editor of the American Journal of Evaluation, Professor Rallis has been involved with education and evaluation for more than three decades. She has been a teacher, counselor, principal, researcher, program evaluator, director of a major federal school reform initiative, and an elected school board member. Currently, her teaching includes courses on inquiry, program evaluation, qualitative methodology, and organizational theory. Her research has focused on the local implementation of programs driven by federal, state, or district policies. As external evaluator or principal investigator (PI), she has studied a variety of domestic and international policy and reform efforts, such as alternative professional development for leaders; collaborations between agencies responsible for educating incarcerated or institutionalized youth; initiatives supporting inclusive education for children and youth with disabilities; local school governance and leadership; labor-management relations in school districts; and leadership development. Her work with students on evaluation and qualitative methodology has taken her as far as Afghanistan, Turkey, and Palestine.
