Leading in the Relational Space
Silverberg, Ruth Powers
Journal of School Leadership, v13 n6 p688-706 Nov 2003
This article describes the application and outcomes of using a shared framework and vocabulary for understanding learning, the Let Me Learn Process, to create a relational space necessary for constructivist learning. Students in an urban leadership preparation program learned about their own and each other's unique learning patterns and participated in activities integrating understanding of the influence of learning patterns with course content. This allowed them to come together in a relational space of shared understanding where they could make new meaning of learning, schooling, and leadership. At the end of 1 year, candidates described the influence of their participation in knowledge construction in the relational space. They also revealed their growing awareness of the role of constructivist leadership in the facilitation of school communities where all students achieve at the highest levels and prepare for democratic participation in their communities.
