Williamson, Ronald; Blackburn, Barbara R.
Eye on Education
Written to accompany the strategies presented in "The Principalship from A-Z," the activities in this book will help you apply the leadership concepts of Blackburn and Williamson to your own experiences as principal. Here, the authors guide you through the process of turning each idea into an actionable plan for your school, allowing you to take productive next-steps immediately. The activities in this guide prompt you to ACT: (1) Assess where you are right now. Identify your school's strengths and challenges; (2) Consider trying something new. Step out of your comfort zone. Visualize yourself implementing a better plan; and (3) Take away a valuable idea. Put your strategy into practice--as soon as today. Do each of these exercises in conjunction with your reading of "The Principalship from A-Z" for a complete best-practices overview, and work toward creating an atmosphere of school-wide success.
