Literacy Leadership in Changing Schools will help literacy leaders improve teachers’ professional development in grades K–6. The authors use literacy basics to suggest concrete approaches that leaders and coaches can use to help teachers improve their instruction with culturally and linguistically diverse students. Based on firsthand experiences, research, and a school-university-community collaborative (Changing Suburbs Institute in New York), this practical book homes in on what literacy leaders need to do in today’s rapidly changing schools. With vignettes, strategies, and guidelines, each chapter is devoted to one essential component of serving as an effective literacy leader. Throughout, the book addresses typical issues leaders and teachers face, such as high-stakes testing, increasing failure rates, rigorous teacher and principal evaluations, family engagement, shrinking resources, and teachers’ inexperience with instructing diverse students. “Today’s educators are faced with the challenge of meeting the increased expectations associated with a high quality education for all children. The contributors provide an excellent resource of relevant information along with a wealth of concrete suggestions for meeting that challenge through effective leadership and ongoing, embedded professional development. The result is a road map for enriched learning experiences for the professionals involved and ultimately for the students they teach.” —Dorothy S. Strickland, Samuel DeWitt Proctor Professor of Education Emerita, Rutgers “This book encourages and supports leaders as they create bold, thoughtful and empowering pathways for professional development. It is a recipe that has the power to highlight the joy of professional growth and learning for leaders, teachers and students alike. To me, that is truly fabulous.” —Jennifer Scoggin, Director of LitLife, Connecticut “The authors address important aspects of the decision-making process, namely how to really know someone or something well before making a choice. Too many of our educational choices are based on outdated or misinformation and this book clearly shows school leaders how to obtain accurate information when creating a cohesive literacy model. This book also takes complex aspects of literacy professional development, such as standards and instructional techniques and breaks them down in clear and applicable ways so that decisions can not just be made but also be implemented.” —Gravity Goldberg, Literacy Consultant, Director, Gravity Goldberg LLC

School superintendents hold many leadership responsibilities, and much of schools' effectiveness rests on the abilities of the superintendents to meet their responsibilities. Criticisms of superintendents' training and educational background usually stem from a professor's lack of attention to a broader range of leadership theories. What professional standards should a superintendent meet? The eight standards presented are a combination of policy-maker knowledge and extensive research. The standards should serve as a foundation for the development and improvement of superintendents' preparation programs. Additionally all superintendents should hold themselves personally accountable to the eight standards. The eight standards for the superintendency are: (1) leadership and district culture; (2) policy and governance; (3) communications and community relations; (4) organizational management; (5) curriculum planning and development; (6) instructional management; (7) human resources management; and (8) values and ethics of leadership. There is a two step approach for putting the standards into operation: allow the standards to influence programs at the superintendent preparation level, and create a Standards Board to ensure the standards are being upheld by current superintendents.

For school principals, there are many different routes to success, and there just as many ways to measure that success in a school. Principals introduces five high school principals with their own stories to tell about success and the challenges of managing mandated change. These personal portraits illustrate the myriad ways administrators respond to change and manage transitions. Created by the PULSE Institute of Calgary, Alberta, Principals shares the vignettes of five different principals in five situationsthe Impresario, the Sherpa, the Coach, the Rescuer, and the Gardener. They hail from varied settings ranging from a large suburban combined junior and senior Catholic school to a high school in a small remote community. This study shows how each principal successfully responded to change at the jurisdictional level around accountability in schools. Principals serves to incite dialogue regarding how to respond to mandated change and how other principals facing the same issues can apply these lessons in their own work and to their own realities.
