Reframing the Path to School Leadership A Guide for Teachers and Principals

Heftet / 2010 / Engelsk
This second edition of Reframing the Path to School Leadership demonstrates how teachers and school leaders can forge strong leadership paths within their schools, from their initial days in a new position to experiences that arise along their professional journey. Writing for new and seasoned educators, Lee G. Bolman and Terrence E. Deal demonstrate how to use multiple frames-politics, human resources, school structures, and cultural symbols-to develop the powerful habits of mind and perspective needed for addressing the challenging educational issues. Through narrative storytelling and a series of dialogues between a novice and a master teacher and between a new and a seasoned principal, the authors illustrate how framing, then reframing, challenges can result in more effective leadership. Updated throughout, this resource presents end-of-section Leadership Lessons that compliment each chapter, provide an explicit summary of the leadership lessons reflected in the interwoven stories, offer solid strategies for practical application, and include reflective questions for group discussion and individual professional growth.

"The leadership skills highlighted are practical and helpful and are applied to specific situations that have been clearly outlined." -- Randy Cook, Chemistry/Physics Teacher"Destined to be a classic in its own right, this book offers readers insights into the realities of teaching and leading schools that are at once refreshing, insightful, and practical. A quick, enjoyable read that encourages deep reflection for best practice." -- Jeffrey Glanz, Silverstein Chair in Professional Ethics & Values"Bolman and Deal's book is profoundly important text for those learning to lead, principal and teacher alike. The authors have presented richly crafted examples of life in the school, both from the teacher and the principal perspective, and introduces the reader to the fundamental principles of leadership. The narratives offer an authentic, real-world picture of learning to lead that takes into account all those individuals most directly implicated in and impacted by leadership at the school level." -- Patricia M. Jenlink, Professor of Educational Leadership"This book reads like a story-once I started, I had a hard time putting it down. How often do we say that about a book on education?" -- Loukea N. Kovanis-Wilson, Chemistry Instructor"I find Reframing the Path to School Leadership to be a most exceptional transition text for those individuals who are in the teaching profession and are in the process of earning their principal certification. The text effectively bridges the gap between being a teacher and becoming an administrator. I have regularly used this text in an introductory course to school administration and have done so with great success. The students appreciate the cast of characters developed by Bolman and Deal as each easily relates to and strongly resembles real individuals encountered in the field of practice!" -- Richard Sorenson, Author
