About the eBook

Great leaders create stronger foundations by building Instructional Capacity
Technology and the age of information have forced educators to rethink how they can create a supportive culture and build academic press. School leaders who learn how to balance these ideas will build successful teams to meet today’s standards.

In this companion to Creating Productive Cultures in Schools, Joe Murphy unpacks essential elements of building instructional capacity-Academic Press- through effective management of instruction, curriculum, and assessment. Leaders and change facilitators who read this will:

Be reminded how effective instruction  works and what forces shape it Understand how powerful assessment ideas can guide successful change Discover secrets to hiring and developing capacity-rich talent Know how to approach and manage curriculum for 21st century outcomes

"Over the past decade increasing emphasis has been given by scholars, policymakers and practitioners to the role leaders play in building the capacity of schools to improve teaching and learning. This volume provides a sound foundation for thinking about the meaning of ′capacity′ as well as the tools leaders can use for productive impact."
Dr. Philip Hallinger
Professor of Educational Management, Chulalongkorn University  (Thailand)

"This book is a practical synthesis of what we know about fostering instructional improvement that should be a required read for every principal. Murphy goes to the heart of leadership by focusing on what can be done in any school or community to strengthen teachers’ capacity to serve all students. There are no simple checklists, but a wise distillation of core ideas that will work in complex settings." 
Karen Seashore Louis, Regents Professor
University of Minnesota
