An Innovative Principal Preparation Program: A Structural Approach.
Husen, Peter M.
An innovative principal preparation program was created at the University of Tennessee--Knoxville. The program was built around 19 parameters and based upon three theoretical domains in administration: organization (defines managerial role), human dimension (defines human relations role), and individual relationship with other two dimensions (defines leadership role). Five streams make up the program structure: (1) an internship with a mentor principal; (2) assessment, development, and reflective practices; (3) knowledge and skill base; (4) supported induction during the first year as an administrator; and (5) maintenance. Two appendices contain tables, illustrations, and outlines of the program. (EJS)
