Additional Book Details

Cultivate instructional leadership centered on student learning!

In an era in which standardized test scores and federal legislation are benchmarks for school success, other characteristics of effective schooling and learning can take a back seat. As John Daresh argues in this timely text, however, school principals can achieve these imperatives while simultaneously centralizing student learning.

Each chapter opens with a real-world scenario designed to coach principals on how to become instructional leaders who reach school goals while placing student needs in the foreground. Daresh also provides "next steps" to help principals understand what effective supervision and learning look like in action, while recognizing different and equally effective styles of instruction among a diverse teaching staff.

By demonstrating how school leaders can enhance their instructional, supervisory, evaluation, and coaching skills, this text reveals how principals can

Attain student-centered practice while supporting those staff members responsible for achieving a school′s goal and vision
Bring out the best in teachers by coaching them to achieve their teaching goals
Rethink personal definitions of teaching, learning, and supervision
Develop an openness and greater understanding of different instructional styles

This text serves as an insightful and practical addition to existing supervision and instructional leadership literature by emphasizing the link between leadership and student-centered learning.
