Pressestimmen"Drawing on more than one hundred case studies of action learning by teams of teachers in schools, the authors provide advice and explain the proper relationship between adult learning and sustained pedagogy for student success .There is no question that teaching has become an extremely complicated profession, and with a revised framework such as action learning, teachers can feel successful and encourage feedback in order to better their pedagogy. If change in teacher behavior is desired, then support structures such as action learning need to be offered so that educators can grow and develop into the professionals they wish to become .Recommended."--CHOICE
