Guidelines for Successful Reading Leaders.
Sanacore, Joseph
Building principals who demonstrate positive language arts leadership can have a major impact on children's literacy learning. Even extremely busy administrators can find time to read educational newspapers and newsletters, which provide pertinent information about forthcoming workshops and conferences, professional and instructional resources, and educational innovations that have been implemented successfully. When administrators and teachers work cooperatively, they increase the chances of creating a shared vision that benefits children. Administrators and staff members also need to support different learning styles and assessment strategies. Another "big picture" consideration is to stimulate students' lifelong love of reading. Administrators need to involve parents in their children's literacy learning. If principals are uncomfortable with such roles, they should delegate them to qualified individuals, including assistant principal, coordinator, consultant, or lead teacher.
