The original edition, published in 1995, challenges current teacher evaluation and school practice. The book discusses stages of teacher choice, teacher responsibilities for evaluation, and suggests ways for teachers to become more involved and in control of their own evaluation. Combining information and techniques from his academic studies and evaluation experiences, Kenneth D Peterson presents a coherent, field-tested set of new practices for teacher evaluation. The revised edition adds new chapters on the role of the principal in changed teacher evaluation, how schools can transition from current practice to improved practices, the use of national standards, developments in using pupil achievement data, and puts a new emphasis on developing sociologically. The Internet as a resource for local development is encouraged (67 web sites are recommended as starting points). New resources for local development have been added from extensive field-testing and analysis; forms have been improved and district-level principles have been assembled. Substantial material has been added on the topic of responding to deficient teacher practice. Finally, the research literature has been augmented.
