Review

"Unmistakable Impact exemplifies everything Jim Knight advocates: a clear focus, respect for educators' significant contributions, and the value that well-designed professional learning contributes to school improvement efforts." -- Dennis Sparks, Former Executive Director "A must read for anyone who cares about learning, this book is from the heart. Knight uses his own experiences to describe processes and strategies for impacting student and adult learning in today's schools." -- Sandee Crowther, President "Jim Knight's work has had a tremendous impact on the quality of our professional development practices that that are job-embedded and meet the REAL needs of our teachers. He is a consummate relationship builder who models how to establish the types of relationships necessary for second-order change to occur." -- Carolyn J. Teigland, Associate Superintendent for Education Services "Jim Knight outlines a clear path to success for educators to make sense out of the complex nature of external mandates, competing initiatives and prevailing traditional models found within many schools and districts around the nation." -- Ken Geisick, Superintendent "Unmistakable Impact takes us deeper into the realm of grounded school improvement-a great contribution to the field." -- Michael Fullan, Professor and Author "Jim Knight helps us to understand how learning can be infectious, energizing, and humanizing as he eloquently delineates the steps involved in creating an impact school. I suggest buying this book for all principals who want to strengthen their schools. I believe that Unmistakable Impact will be a resource they return to time and again." -- Stephanie Hirsh, Executive Director "The book introduces the reader to the theoretical framework, strategies, structure and findings from qualitative studies on instructional coaching to explain how partnership learning supports effective instruction and student achivement." -- Susan Farber, University of Cincinnati --This text refers to the paperback edition.
