For school leaders, teachers, and parents, Sullivan (education, College of Staten Island, City U. of New York) and Glanz (education, Wagner College) present ways to create collaborative learning communities that will produce high academic standards for every student. They begin with ways to understand leadership styles through self-knowledge, learning behaviors, and developing vision statements, followed by discussions of communication skills and techniques for meetings, all used to build better learning communities.
