Teacher Leader Stories: The Power of Case Methods
Swanson, Judy; Elliott, Kimberly; Harmon, Jeanne
Many teachers desire--but have a hard time obtaining--the training and support they need to lead others and expand their circle of influence. Like having a conversation with a successful teacher leader, this practical guide will help teachers strengthen their leadership skills, optimize student learning, and enhance the profession. Research confirms that the best way to become an effective teacher leader is through case study, and this book provides: (1) 16 compelling case studies that cover a broad range of leadership experiences; (2) Explicit guidance on using case writing and case analysis to enrich teachers' professional learning; and (3) A facilitator's guide with discussion questions for each case study. The people and events in these cases are real, and these relatable stories cover a variety of leadership dilemmas from diverse settings. Written in compelling and straightforward language, "Teacher Leader Stories" is most beneficial to staff development professionals and aspiring teacher leaders seeking the rich, substantive professional learning experience they need to become successful.
