Not just another book on leadership teams
For school teams to succeed, they need leadership, independence, meaningful collaboration, and a shared conviction that they have real power to enact actual change. Educators know this, but they often lack an inquiry process that creates a community of learning leaders that is capable of deep collective impact on student learning and wellbeing.
In this research-based, hands-on guidebook, school leadership coach Peter DeWitt introduces eight key drivers to integrating teacher and leader efficacy (mindset, well-being, context beliefs, working conditions, professional learning, organizational commitment, skills, and confidence) and harnesses it with a process to help you focus on the nuances of instruction and teaming to develop powerful collective leader efficacy.
Readers will find:
- Activities and strategies designed to build collective efficacy in instructional teams and foster leadership and interdependence among teachers
- Theories of action to focus team efforts and how to create your own
- Tools, reflection prompts, and guiding questions to help you define your desired outcomes and the steps necessary to get there
With this book and the research within it, your instructional leadership team will develop a learner’s mindset, a collective commitment to improvement, and a shared process for inquiry and continual growth so you can nurture greater impact together.
How do your teachers, instructional coaches, assistant principals, and school building leaders within your organization best learn? This cycle of inquiry will help you best meet the needs of your school community.
