Teachers--Transforming Their World and Their Work. (Professional Books).

TEACHERS--Transforming Their World and Their Work. A. Lieberman & L. Miller. New York: Teachers College Press, 1999. 104 pp. Paperback, $16.95. Teachers -- Transforming Their World and Their Work is a follow-up volume to Lieberman and Miller's earlier work, Teachers, Their World and Their Work. Believing teachers to be the center of meaningful change in schools, Lieberman and Miller present case studies and personal accounts of efforts that have effectively brought about school reform.

The book benefits from the authors' collective experiences, which lend credibility to their commentary as they profile effective strategies and components of school reform. Although the book does not introduce new revelations related to school reform and leadership development, it does present the material in a concise and readable format. New and veteran teachers alike could be motivated to discuss insights gained from this book and consider what change might look like for their campus.

Today, when so much is documented about all that is wrong with education, this book provides a glimmer of hope for the future of education. Whether you are a new teacher just setting out to change the world, or a seasoned teacher who just needs a puff of wind for your sails to continue the course, you will find this book an encouragement to you professionally. When you finish, you might consider passing the book down the hall to someone else who needs a lift. Reviewed by Bradley S. Mason, Assistant Principal, Redlands High School, Redlands, CA
