The topic of management by wandering around is not new, but the authors’ approach is fresh and timely. This current rendition based on the original work by Frase and Hetzel gives new and seasoned administrators smart, practical advice about what to do in critical school leadership circumstances. This text cites more than 20 well-constructed research studies that show how management by wandering around produces desirable outcomes, including:

  • Higher student achievement
  • Improved school culture
  • Higher teacher efficacy

Topics covered include developing meeting agendas, supervising instruction, dealing with marginal teachers, and creating safe campuses.

In The Press

"From my perspective, it is not so much the wandering and the gathering of information that is important, rather it is how the supervisor or mentor uses this information to provide reflective dialogue with the person supervised. This book focuses on wandering with a purpose and engaging people in dialogue."
