"Schechter provides a refreshing lens for examining and learning from past events by showing what is made possible when teams focus on success rather than harp on failure.  If you’re looking to improve the school improvement process, this thought-provoking text just might be the impetus for shifting mindsets from a deficient to an asset-based model."

Jenni Donohoo, Provincial Literacy Lead, Council of Ontario Directors of Education

"Anyone interested in school improvement will benefit from the wisdom of Chen Schechter's wise analysis in this important volume."

Sam Wineburg, Margaret Jacks Professor of Education and History

"Roland Barth once pondered, out loud, how many children’s lives might be saved if teachers were to disclose what they know to one another.  Schechter highlights the importance of collective learning among educators, proposing a process by which teachers share their wisdom.  This wisdom is gleaned through reflection, especially through the framework of learning from success."

Megan Tschannen-Moran, Professor of Educational Leadership
College of William & Mary
