Building Expertise in Educational Leadership by Writing and Reflecting on Stories of Practice.
Danzig, Arnold D.
Graduate programs in educational administration often do not accurately portray the realities of the job. This paper describes an approach by which administrators and those in training interviewed experienced educational administrators and then used the interview transcripts to write a story of leadership. Ten administrators were interviewed. The stories described the personal biographies and life experiences of administrators. The stories also illustrated some of the explicit rules that administrators used to manage problems as well as their implicit assumptions that were embedded in practice. There is a need for training programs to bridge the gap between theory and practice by drawing from communities of practitioners. Two tables are included. (Contains 39 references.) (Author/LMI)
