Journal of School Leadership, v19 n1 p81-117 Jan 2009
In this school-university partnership, university faculty team with high school teachers to advance content literacy for immigrant students. Using a narrative research design, we retell stories, chronologically structured by comentoring developmental phases, to retrace our individual teams' activities. With a distributive perspective of leadership, we examine interactions among university faculty, teachers, and administrators and reflect on the ways of and reasons for accomplishing partnership tasks. In the process, we identify leadership strategies that either offset problems highlighted in the literature or address struggles confronted in this cross-cultural endeavor, and we offer insights regarding essentials for facilitating school-university collaborations.
