Good book for teachers to read, new or veteran

I would recommend this book to any teacher. It is inspiring and has a good educational base. It teaches the reader many things while you read it. I had to read this for a master's course and really enjoyed it. It is like a novel in that it has a plot to it, but also has a reference guide aspect to it as well. It was helpful to me to read.

Great book, quick read!

Bolman & Deal's Reframing the Path to School Leadership is an interesting read. They use four frames of reference--the political frame, human resource frame, the structural frame, and the symbolic frame--to discuss leadership, both on the classroom and school level. They use a fictional cast of characters that includes new and veteran teachers, and new and veteran principals. At first I was wary of the fictional narrative, but I found it interesting and it kept me reading. At the end of each chapter, which includes a number of fictional scenarios on familair themes (beginning of the year, discipline, tracking, special education), there is a discussion part that I found very helpful. I'm a beginning principal, and I found this book informative and enlightening. It's also written for teachers, and I think I would've found the book just as useful if I'd read it when I was still in the classroom.
