    Product Description

    By Bill Barnes and Mona Toncheff

    To build and sustain a successful mathematics program, mathematics leaders need to work collaboratively to establish a cohesive vision for teaching and learning and put that vision into action. This book details the necessary steps that mathematics leaders must take to change traditional practices; meet new curricular, instructional, and assessment challenges; and engage students, families, and community members in mathematics education.

    Readers receive the benefit of detailed guidance as they set about this important work:

    • Discover the big ideas and essential understandings of the four keys of effective mathematics leadership and how the four keys connect to each other.

    • Answer questions to assess mathematics leadership.

    • Consider scenarios that illustrate how mathematics leaders can take the visionary leadership actions described in this book.

    • Explore the relationships among district-, site-, and team-level engagement.

    • Appraise the necessary steps to move mathematics leadership from vision to action.

    • Use appendices that present planning templates and menus of professional development opportunities.
