Product Description

By Don Balka, Ted Hull, Ruth Harbin Miles

"If you have anything at all to do with mathematics leadership in your school or district, this resource is the launch pad for your leadership efforts. It provides the necessary background, gets you started, and will force you to consider 'leadership traps' you may encounter along the way. This book won’t be placed on a shelf—it will be used daily!"
—Skip Fennell, Professor, McDaniel College
Past President, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics

Empower mathematics educators and learners to meet and exceed high expectations!

School leaders who are responsible for improving mathematics achievement face tremendous challenges. Written by three noted mathematics educators, this book helps leaders implement a high-quality mathematics program, regardless of the status of their current programs or the availability of resources.

A Guide to Mathematics Leadership presents a process-based approach to improving mathematics instruction based on five principles identified by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM)—equity, curriculum, teaching, learning, and assessment—and four leadership principles from the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM)—equity leadership, teaching and learning leadership, curriculum leadership, and assessment leadership. These principles are applied during the program improvement cycle, which includes:

  • Articulating the curriculum
  • Implementing the curriculum
  • Incorporating effective instructional strategies
  • Providing timely and targeted feedback
  • Establishing professional learning communities
  • Fostering professional development

Filled with practical advice, tips, tools, and resources for each stage of the process, this book guides readers in the next steps to excellence in mathematics instruction and learning.
