The Intermediate School Principal: An In-Basket Simulation Exercise.
Musella, Donald F.; Joyce, H. Donald
The materials in this booklet simulate some of the problems that intermediate (junior high, middle, and senior elementary) school principals could face under actual working conditions. Taken from the real-life problems of some intermediate school principals, the exercises are presented in the form of in-basket items -- letters, memos, phone messages, etc, -- that require some action on the part of the person assuming the role of intermediate school principal. The materials are designed to (1) improve skills related to administrative processes, comprehension of leadership and administrative roles, interpersonal skills in working with others through various models of operation, and the use of various models of problem solving; and (2) provide greater understandings of organizational relationships, role theory and role relationships, and self and others as part of the interpersonal relationship within a group setting.
