"Linking Leadership to Student Learning" clearly shows how school leadership improves student achievement. The book is based on an ambitious five-year study on educational leadership that was sponsored by The Wallace Foundation. The authors studied 43 districts, across 9 states and 180 elementary, middle, and secondary schools. In this book, Kenneth Leithwood, Karen Seashore Louis, and their colleagues report their findings. They examined leadership at each organizational level in the school system--classroom, school, district, community, and state. Their comprehensive approach to investigating school leadership offers a balanced understanding of how the structures within which leaders operate, shape what they do. The results within will have significant implications for future policy and practice. Following the first chapter, entitled "Leadership and Learning: The Critical Connection", the book is divided into two parts. Part One: School Leadership that Matters for Students, contains the following chapters: (2) Collective Leadership: The Reality of Leadership Distribution Within the School Community (Kenneth Leithwood and Doris Jantzi); (3) Shared and Instructional Leadership: When Principals and Teachers Successfully Lead Together (Karen Seashore Louis and Kyla Wahlstrom); (4) Distributed Leadership in Action: a Complex Pattern of People, Tasks, and Goals (Stephen E. Anderson); (5) Core Practices: The Four Essential Components of the Leader's Repertoire (Kenneth Leithwood); and (6) An Up-Close View of Instructional Leadership: a Grounded Analysis (Kyla Wahlstrom). Part Two: "The Broad and Unique Role of Districts in the School Improvement Business", presents these chapters: (7) How to Harness Family and Community Energy: The District's Role (Molly F. Gordon and Karen Seashore Louis); (8) Confidence for School Improvement: a Priority for Principals (Kenneth Leithwood, Blair Mascall, and Doris Jantzi); (9) Principal Efficacy: District-Led Professional Development (Kenneth Leithwood, Stephen E. Anderson, and Karen Seashore Louis); (10) Succession: a Coordinated Approach to Leadership Distribution (Blair Mascall and Kenneth Leithwood); (11) Data Use: An Exploration from the District to the School (Stephen E. Anderson, Kenneth Leithwood, and Karen Seashore Louis); (12) The "District Difference": a New Perspective on the Local Challenges for Improvement (Stephen E. Anderson and Karen Seashore Louis); (13) Case Studies: District Responses to State Leadership (Karen Seashore Louis, Stephen E. Anderson, and Emanda Thomas). Appended are: (1) Scale Reliability for Variables; and (2) Additional Evidence Related to Chapter Seven. (Contains 14 figures, and 23 tables.).

Demonstrating the power and potential of educators working together to use literacy practices that make changes in people's lives, this collaboratively written book blends the voices of participants in a teacher-led professional development group to provide a truly lifespan perspective on designing critical literacy practices. It joins these educators’ stories with the history and practices of the group - K-12 classroom teachers, adult educators, university professors, and community activists who have worked together since 2001 to better understand the relationship between literacy and social justice. Exploring issues such as gender equity, linguistic diversity, civil rights and freedom and war, the book showcases teachers’ reflective practice in action and offers insight into the possibilities and struggles of teaching literacy through a framework of social justice. Designing Socially Just Learning Communities models an innovative form of professional development for educators and researchers who are seeking ways to transform educational practices. The teachers' practices and actions – in their classrooms and as members of the teacher research group – will speak loudly to policy-makers, researchers, and activists who wish to work alongside them.

Through real-life single and multiple case studies, Learning to Lead Together addresses how principals and their staffs struggle with the challenge of shared leadership, how they encourage teacher growth and development, and how shared leadership can lead to higher levels of student learning. The cases show how shared leadership, a powerful adaptive change, is socially constructed across contexts and evolves as teachers and principals learn how to work together. The book also illustrates how principal preparation and professional development programs that utilize problem-based learning and provide opportunities for genuine collaboration with colleagues can provide school leaders with the skills they need to share leadership and accountability effectively.

“It’s not the doing that matters; it’s the thinking about the doing,” said John Dewey. As a teacher, you work hard to make a positive difference in the lives of your students. But this kind of progress doesn’t happen overnight, and it doesn’t happen accidentally. It’s the result of intentionality, planning, effort . . . and thought. The difference between learning a skill and being able to implement it effectively resides in your capacity to engage in deep, continuous thought about that skill. In other words, recognizing why you do something is often more important than knowing how to do it. To help you deepen your thinking and reflect on your capacity as an educator, Pete Hall and Alisa Simeral return to the Continuum of Self-Reflection, which they introduced to coaches and administrators in their best-selling Building Teachers’ Capacity for Success, and redesign its implementation so you can take charge of your own professional growth. In these pages, you’ll find tools specifically made to enhance self-reflection on professional practice, including the Continuum of Self-Reflection and the Reflective Cycle. You’ll be able to assess your current self-reflective tendencies, identify opportunities to reflect on your instruction, and begin to forge a path toward continuous growth and educational excellence.
