'Leadership Strategies for Teachers captures nearly all of the leadership situations that a teacher encounters at one point or another. The author provides a clear snapshot of many practical theories that can aid any aspiring, or situational, leader' - Erin Powers, English Teacher, Paul Revere Charter Middle School, Los Angeles, CA
Teachers rarely see themselves as leaders, but teachers who are committed to their students and to their own professional development already help advance school improvement efforts. This practical handbook shows teachers how they can expand their leadership skills by offering strategies for improving student achievement, extending their own learning, collaborating with others for school improvement, and supporting shared vision and values in their learning communities!
Teachers at all levels will find invaluable information for developing leadership skills and strengthening their school communities. Included are strategies for:
. Goal setting and strategic planning
. Team building
. Conflict resolution
. Reflective inquiry and practice
. Professional development and networking
In addition, the latest research about teacher-leaders, numerous case studies, and reflective worksheets will help teachers to extend their talents, knowledge, and skills as learning leaders.
