"I enjoyed reading Teacher Teams That Get Results and anticipate using some of the activities with groups that I facilitate."
"Excellent introduction integrates the 5 'theaters of the mind' in a brief and coherent way. I have not seen this done as well in other educational books."
"Ready-to-use templates and clear instructions make this material user-friendly. Provides respected sources and a range of examples and applications. Especially helpful is the cross-reference matrix showing how a strategy can be used in more than one area."
"Provides flexible and relevant strategies that educational leaders can use to create a structure for meaningful conversations and moving forward in the sometimes messy business of learning communities. This book provides the nuts and bolts of getting to the big picture—something that's been needed for a while. My colleagues and I will find this guide useful in our quest to improve student learning."
"This fits so well with work we are presently doing, and I am so pleased to see the brain research and practical strategies reflected everywhere! The authors' approach to teacher teams has been at the heart of the work I’ve been doing for the past 8 years with schools and leadership teams."
"A remarkable volume by two authors who understand what a collaborative school is and how to make it work. This is a must-purchase. It is a book to use and use and use, and it is a solution to administrators who dream of a collaborative culture replacing a political, warring, and insular climate."
