Description : This book calls for moving teachers to the center of decision-making in public schools. It honors teaching and teachers by redefining the role in a democratically organized professional setting. While modern reform employs the language of school restructuring, genuine change that will enhance the status of teachers is not at the top of the agenda. This book recognizes that for authentic empowerment to materialize, the nature of the teaching role must significantly change. At the same time, teacher preparation will also have to be overhauled in order to equip teachers with all that a new status demands. It also proposes that the role of the principal must be dramatically transformed and recommends returning principals to the teaching function as part of their task and places them in greater accountability to the professional teaching staff itself. The book presents a hopeful message that is grounded in a progressive perspective our conservative epoch demands.

Description : This open access book presents a comparative study on how large-scale professional development programs for teachers are designed and implemented. Around the world, governments and educators are recognizing the need to educate students in a broad range of higher order cognitive skills and socio-emotional competencies, and providing effective opportunities for teachers to develop the expertise needed to teach these skills is a crucial aspect of effective implementation of curricula which include those goals. This study examines how large-scale efforts to empower teachers for deeper instruction have been designed, how they have been implemented, and their outcomes. To do so, it investigates six programs from England, Colombia, Mexico, India, and the United States. Though all six are intended to broaden and deepen students' curricular aspirations, each takes this expansion of curricular goals in a different direction. The ambitious education reforms studied here explicitly focus on building teachers' capacity to teach on a broader set of goals. Through a discerning analysis of program documents, evaluations, and interviews with senior leaders and participants in the programs, the book identifies the various theories of action used in these programs, examines how they were implemented, and discusses what they achieved. As such, it offers an indispensable resource for education leaders interested in designing and implementing professional development programs for teachers that are aligned with ambitious instructional goals.

Description : The capacity to reflect – individually and with others – is considered valuable in teacher professional development internationally. In the field of Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language, reflective practice has been deemed to be a precious tool at the pre-service level and in the ongoing development of teachers. Despite the importance of teacher reflection, the field of Teaching English as a Foreign Language in Higher Education has tended to overlook this topic and especially its collaborative and emotional elements. This book proposes a new and practical model for engaging teachers in transformational learning through an ‘emotionalized’ version of reflection. More specifically, the Collaborative, Appreciative, Reflective Enquiry (CARE) model represents a guide for teachers who wish to engage in reflective practice alone and with others in an appreciative context. As such, this book will be invaluable to in-service language teachers and teacher educators who are committed to realizing their potential as educators and human beings through growth that only emancipatory reflection and positive emotionality can bring.

Description : BOLD Humility is that secret "it" factor that we look for when trying to discover greatness. It is the balance of confidence and grace. It is wisdom coupled with vulnerability. It is the ability to bravely embrace what you know while being willing to seek support where you need it the most. In this book, Dave takes a look at how educators can embrace BOLD humility to help tap into the greatness inside all of us. By sharing his own struggles coupled with his own successes, Dave paves a path that allows us all to walk away feeling empowered and ready to tackle the challenges that await us all. What we do they do. From designated leaders, to classroom teachers, to students sitting in seats, Dave demonstrates that behaviors are learned by the examples of others and in this book we get a glimpse into the possibilities that exist within our schools when teachers are empowered to empower their students. You can have control or you can have growth, but you can't have both. Let's all embrace our need for a new form of leadership, leadership that is BOLD. Leadership that is humble. Leadership that empowers. Leadership that inspires.

Description : The role of a teacher as an action researcher in Croatia is still insufficiently appreciated and promoted in initial teachers' training, school students learning and in the employed teachers' professional post-qualification development. In this country, teachers are most frequently perceived as mediators or technicians whose task is to prepare and implement the tuition based on instructions devised by out-of-school experts. Their role is more artisan-like, being less professional and creative. To change this situation in his context the author invited 18 teachers from several elementary schools to join and start an action research project with the main question: "How to help teachers to become reflective practitioners and action researchers?" The Project started in spring 2000 and officially finished in spring 2002. Unofficially they have never finished the project. The author divided the project into two parts. In the first part he organized ten workshops, the aim of which was teachers learning and practicing new skills. They dealt with themes such as confronting the risk of change, reflective teacher, multiple intelligences and the vision of future schools. The author's role during that period was predominant. This fact was in contradiction with his values (particularly with emancipation) but that was in tune with the expectation of a teacher. During that period teachers visited and discussed each other's lessons. The first part of the project was an easier and more appropriate way of professional development for more teachers, but they were less responsible for the preparation and realization of workshops. They participated in previously prepared activities. In the second part of the project they started with teachers' action research projects. While the role of the action researcher was impossible for most members of the community, some of them were able to conduct their action research and improve their practice.

Description : "The role of the school principal is vital to the functioning, performance and success of the school. Principals are responsible for all aspects of school management including functioning as instructional leaders, evaluators, data specialists, behavioral managers, and substitute teachers. Given the myriad of responsibilities of the school principal, their role as the leader of instruction is often forced aside due to the immediate daily demands from students, families, and staff members. Strengthening the leadership voices of classroom teachers and capitalizing on their expertise and resources has potential to lead to significant and sustained change in schools. This research study focused on the role of the building principal in developing a shared, sustainable leadership model in order to build organizational leadership capacity. In this study, teacher perceptions of current and potential leadership opportunities within their schools were explored"--Author's abstract.
