Leadership Makes a Difference: A Series of Professional Development Workshops for Principals and School Leaders.
Pacific Resources for Education and Learning, Honolulu, HI.
This document is a series of three workshops for principals and school leaders using a Pacific region cultural context. Its goal is to promote diverse thinking and opinions that will lead to discussions that, in turn, will have a positive impact on student achievement. Workshop settings are based on the bai, a traditional house where people gather for business and community activities. Because the bai is split into two sides, it is an ideal setting for presenting the two sides of a debate or of an issue, and is thus conducive for discussion and reflection on the workshop content. Workshop themes are: (1) Leader as Learner; (2) Leader as Sensemaker; and (3) Leader as Change Agent. Workshops are organized under seven headings for ease in leading activities: title of session, main ideas, desired outcomes, estimated time, materials list, directions for the facilitator, suggested readings/resources, handouts, and video cue guide. Appendices contain an introduction to Dr. Bruce Matsui, facilitator tools, techniques to encourage and promote group processes, sample evaluation forms for workshops, and a list of additional resources including websites and literature. The content of this module serves as foundational information and is intended to be part of ongoing staff development for administrators. (RT)
