Cognitive Perspectives on Educational Leadership. Critical Issues in Educational Leadership Series.
Hallinger, Philip, Ed.; And Others
This book summarizes and applies the last 2 decades of research on cognitive psychology to the preparation of educational administrators. Following a foreword by Larry Cuban and an introduction by Philip Hallinger, Kenneth Leithwood, and Joseph Murphy, part 1 explores how cognitive perspectives illuminate the conceptualization of problems faced by school administrators. Chapters include: (1) "The Strategy of Teaching Strategy" (Charles T. Kerchner); (2) "Everyday Epistemology in School Leadership: Patterns and Prospects" (Lee G. Bolman and Terrence E. Deal); (3) "How CEOs Change Their Minds" (John C. Glidewell); and (4) "Pragmatism, Participation, and Duty: Value Themes in Superintendents' Problem Solving" (Tiiu Raun and Kenneth Leithwood). Part 2 investigates the nature of administrative expertise, including work drawn from studies of managerial problem solving in other organizations. Chapters include: (5) "The Development of Expertise: Implications for School Administrators" (Kathleen L. Ohde and Joseph Murphy); (6) "Practical Problem-Solving" (Richard K. Wagner); (7) "The Relationship Between Variations in Patterns of School Leadership and Group Problem-Solving Processes" (Kenneth Leithwood and Rosanne Steinbach); (8) "Trees and Forests: Details, Abstraction, and Experience in Problem-Solving" (Derek J. Allison and Patricia A. Allison); and (9) "A Theoretical View of the Development of Expertise in Credit Administration" (Frank R. Yekovich). Part 3 examines how cognitive perspectives can inform an understanding of the processes that can be used to assist school leaders in developing their craft. Chapters include: (10) "Who Ya Gonna Call? Thoughts About Teaching Problem-Solving" (John D. Bransford); (11) "Apprenticeship in Problem-Solving: Extending the Cognitive Apprenticeship Model" (Nona A. Prestine); (12) "A Design Studio for Reflective Practice" (Ann Weaver Hart); (13) "Learning from Teaching: Problems, Problem-Formulation, and the Enhancement of Problem-Solving Capability" (J. G. T. Kelsey); (14) "Problem-Based Learning in Medical and Managerial Education" (Edwin M. Bridges and Philip Hallinger); and "Conclusion: The Expertise of Educational Leaders" (Kenneth Leithwood, Philip Hallinger, and Joseph Murphy). References accompany each chapter. (LMI)
