Developing Teacher Leaders: Professional Development in Science and Mathematics.
Nesbit, Catherine R., Ed.; Wallace, Josephine D.,Ed.; Pugalee, David K., Ed.; Miller, Anne-Courtney, Ed.; DiBiase, Warren J., Ed.
This book approaches the subject of leadership among science and mathematics teachers during times of educational reform from the perspective of local decision making, personal action, and respect of peers. The view of leadership presented in this book elevates the profession rather than the status of individuals, and the view is supported by positive outcomes in the everyday communities of schools. During the years of ongoing reform, education has focused on goals, standards, teacher preparation, materials, and curriculum frameworks. Ultimate success in reforming practice, however, will come when some key people at the local level lead the way in making decisions, taking action, and maintaining a resolve to improve practices grounded in tradition. This book consists of 15 chapters which highlight teacher leadership, professional development, teacher enhancement programs, and teachers' perspectives on science and mathematics education. (SAH)
