About the Authors

Bruce Joyce is director of Booksend Laboratories in St. Simons Island, Georgia. His career has had two phases. One was based at universities, including the University of Chicago and Teachers College, Columbia University, and was focused on research on instruction, teaching and learning styles, and teacher education. The second involves partnerships with school districts with longterm school renewal projects in North America and international locations where studies of staff development and school renewal have been embedded. The New Structure of School Improvement (with Emily Calhoun and David Hopkins), available through Open University Press (2000), summarizes recent school improvement research and makes recommendations to school districts. Joyce is also coauthor (with Marsha Weil and Emily Calhoun) of Models of Teaching (6th ed., Allyn & Bacon, 2000).

Beverly Showers began her career as a highly successful inner-city classroom teacher, thence to her doctoral study at Stanford University on teacher efficacy within various school cultures, and coordinator of a large study of teaching styles and student learning. Her groundbreaking studies of peer coaching led to her current work as partner with school districts where, as in the case of Joyce's partnerships, studies of staff development and school renewal are embedded.

The third edition of Student Achievement through Staff Development presents the current thinking of these scholar practitioners and their practical advice to those who would make student learning the focus of staff development.
