The ideas presented in the sourcebook, and in a summarized companion volume, "Leading for Learning: Reflective Tools for School and District Leaders," support leaders' efforts to improve student learning in schools and districts. The ideas constitute a framework for enabling powerful, equitable learning for all students, outlining five areas of leadership action and several pathways for advancing student and professional learning while building a system that connects and sustains these efforts. Part 1, "Leading for Learning: Essential Ideas and Tasks," reviews the central ideas laid out in the companion volume and offers additional mini-examples. It further explains and offers a more complete set of source references for these ideas. Part 2, "Leading for Learning in School and District Contexts," presents extended examples of framework ideas in action at the school and district levels. The examples trace the evolution of leadership strategies aimed at learning improvement. Part 3, "Using Reflective Tools to Support Leading for Learning," presents an image of the reflective tools currently in use within schools, districts, and leadership preparation programs. An appendix describes 23 pathways to learning. (Contains 111 references.) (SM)
