3D School Leadership - Steven Weber - 0 views

  •  
    "As we enter 2013, teachers and administrators will reflect on the school's existing strengths and weaknesses. High performing schools ask questions such as, "Which students are struggling? What will we do to support them in 2013?" New Year's Day is a time when people around the world establish new personal and team goals. Among the most common personal goals are weight loss, financial goals, spending time with those you love, and volunteerism. How can school leaders capitalize on this transition from 2012 to 2013? How can goals drive the work of teachers and schools?"

Leadership Principles | Connected Principals - 0 views

    "Author and Leadership Consultant, Ken Blanchard, wrote in one of his books, "Everything rises and falls on leadership." I couldn't agree more. However, I don't think this has anything to do with positional leadership, but more about leadership principles. There are a number of people I consider leaders, from students to global dignitaries and everyone in between. I have learned and continue to learn what leadership is by observing others and reflecting on my own behaviors as a leader. Following are my most important principles that define leadership and how each principle is present or in the works at Gahanna Lincoln High School: Vision, Relationships, Clear Expectations, Communication, Team Work & Service, Accountability, and Learning."

Educational Leadership:Supporting Beginning Teachers:Now That I Know What I Know - 0 views

  • Test scores are also way up, but not because of drilling; it's a natural by-product of a higher-functioning community.

    "Looking back at his first disastrous year of teaching, a veteran shares what he's learned. It takes a village to raise a competent teacher, but I didn't know that as a rookie. Descending P.S. 85's stairs to pick up my students on September 8, 2003, my first day as a real 4th grade teacher in the Bronx, I thought I had things figured out. I was 22 and newly graduated from New York University, a prestigious institution where-just as in high school-I'd earned top grades. The New York City Teaching Fellows, a selective alternative certification program, had accepted my application and deemed me qualified to teach in a high-needs public school. Up to then, I'd done pretty well as a student, so I expected that teaching-just a stone's throw from studenthood, I thought-would offer me a similar equation:

    effort + intelligence + people skills = success

    I loved kids, had a career-teacher mom, and was willing to dedicate myself full-time to my students. How wrong could it go?"

Are teens more capable than we think? - Curriculum21 - 0 views

  •  
    "Consider the work of Dr. Robert Epstein and his call for a new look at the "child-adult continuum." Dr.
    Epstein calls for a return to more natural relationships between our
    children and adults, something we may have lost as we've developed the
    modern idea of "adolescence." Dr. Epstein raises the essential question,
    "Are teens more capable than we think?""

    "The big finding of the BES is that when school leaders promote and/or participate in effective teacher professional learning this has twice the impact on student outcomes across a school than any other leadership activity. New Zealand principals spend less time on those activities that make most difference than many of their international peers."

    "The 8 Step Process

    30 years of research by leadership guru Dr. John Kotter have proven that 70% of all major change efforts in organizations fail.

    Why do they fail? Because organizations often do not take the holistic approach required to see the change through.

    However, by following the 8 Step Process outlined by Professor Kotter, organizations can avoid failure and become adept at change.

    By improving their ability to change, organizations can increase their chances of success, both today and in the future. Without this ability to adapt continuously, organizations cannot thrive.
