From theory to practice–here’ a readable, teachable, relevant, and timely look at educational leadership and organizational behavior aligned with the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) standards with a strong focus on how to translate the theory into practice.
This highly accessible resource takes historical, contemporary, scholarly, and research-supported ideas about leadership in organizations (particularly schools) and shows their relevance in actual practice. Each chapter presents focus questions, realistic case studies, and case study questions, plus socially-mediated activities after each major concept, to guide readers as they explore the meaning and professional relevance of the leadership topics–and see how to apply those ideas to their actual work settings, now or in the future.
Here, new ideas are tied to actual leadership behaviors through the case studies and personal experiences that the author relates, so readers get a firm understanding of the information and how to relate it to their own personal experiences or transfer it to new situations. The author addresses a number of “hot topics” in leadership to capture and keep the reader’s interest.
