The Power of Connectivity: Multilayered Program Grooms Assistant Principals' Leadership Skills
Drago-Severson, Eleanor; Aravena, Janet Lynch
Journal of Staff Development, v32 n2 p50-53 Apr 2011
Every teacher knows that exposure to new information is one small part in the teaching and learning process. Before students truly learn a concept, they must actively engage with material--discussing, sharing, seeing, and practicing it--to make it their own. In other words, they need to "connect" with concepts and have opportunities to apply them spontaneously. In this article, the authors share one powerful program that is built around connectivity. The Advanced Leadership Program for Assistant Principals focuses specifically on professional development for assistant principals as they grow in their efforts to become more effective leaders and ultimately assume a principalship. The leadership program offers a year of professional development and a year to build relationships established in an atmosphere of trust, safety, and confidentiality. It is a safe place for people to grow together, a place in which authentic connectivity builds new and stronger school leaders.
