Leadership

Edited by:


June 2016 | 120 pages | Corwin
Part of a groundbreaking 7-book series, co-developed by Learning Forward and Corwin, this book closes the "knowing-doing" gap by guiding educational leaders through the process for implementing the Learning Forward Standard for Professional Learning: Leadership.

Tackling the Leadership standard, it provides:
  • Original essays written by leading experts in the field to promote deeper understandings of the meaning of the Leadership standard
  • An array of templates, tools, and protocols  to help you design and delivery quality professional learning in your own district or school
  • Case studies of districts "getting it right" and educators who have realized the promise of effective professional learning.
