Powerful Leadership Development: Bridging Theory and Practice Using Peers and Technology.
Lepard, David H.; Foster, Alice G.
The goal of this book is to begin the process of making a contribution to the identification and development of better-prepared and stronger educational leaders. It focuses on the following: leadership skills and their linkages to the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) standards and the National Policy Board for Educational Administration's domains and dimensions; hands-on learning that bridges theory and practice; a combination of best practices from teaching, instruction, and staff development; and directions for developing personal action plans for continuing professional development. It is designed as a cooperative-learning tool. The lessons and activities require a partner who provides specific performance feedback and who serves as a development partner and coach. It is organized into eight sections: (1) "Background and Fundamentals"; (2) "Analyzing a Case Study"; (3) "Developing School Improvement Plans"; (4) "Office Deskwork"; (5) "Making Oral Presentations"; (6) "Providing Leadership in Groups"; (7) "Conducting Structured Interviews"; and (8) "Planning for Personal Development." An extensive resources section contains examples of lists for analyzing case studies, samples of various forms and documentation, ISLLC standards, and a summary analysis of performance aspects related to the program skill areas. A subject index is also included. (WFA)
