"Linking Leadership to Student Learning" clearly shows how school leadership improves student achievement. The book is based on an ambitious five-year study on educational leadership that was sponsored by The Wallace Foundation. The authors studied 43 districts, across 9 states and 180 elementary, middle, and secondary schools. In this book, Kenneth Leithwood, Karen Seashore Louis, and their colleagues report their findings. They examined leadership at each organizational level in the school system--classroom, school, district, community, and state. Their comprehensive approach to investigating school leadership offers a balanced understanding of how the structures within which leaders operate, shape what they do. The results within will have significant implications for future policy and practice. Following the first chapter, entitled "Leadership and Learning: The Critical Connection", the book is divided into two parts. Part One: School Leadership that Matters for Students, contains the following chapters: (2) Collective Leadership: The Reality of Leadership Distribution Within the School Community (Kenneth Leithwood and Doris Jantzi); (3) Shared and Instructional Leadership: When Principals and Teachers Successfully Lead Together (Karen Seashore Louis and Kyla Wahlstrom); (4) Distributed Leadership in Action: a Complex Pattern of People, Tasks, and Goals (Stephen E. Anderson); (5) Core Practices: The Four Essential Components of the Leader's Repertoire (Kenneth Leithwood); and (6) An Up-Close View of Instructional Leadership: a Grounded Analysis (Kyla Wahlstrom). Part Two: "The Broad and Unique Role of Districts in the School Improvement Business", presents these chapters: (7) How to Harness Family and Community Energy: The District's Role (Molly F. Gordon and Karen Seashore Louis); (8) Confidence for School Improvement: a Priority for Principals (Kenneth Leithwood, Blair Mascall, and Doris Jantzi); (9) Principal Efficacy: District-Led Professional Development (Kenneth Leithwood, Stephen E. Anderson, and Karen Seashore Louis); (10) Succession: a Coordinated Approach to Leadership Distribution (Blair Mascall and Kenneth Leithwood); (11) Data Use: An Exploration from the District to the School (Stephen E. Anderson, Kenneth Leithwood, and Karen Seashore Louis); (12) The "District Difference": a New Perspective on the Local Challenges for Improvement (Stephen E. Anderson and Karen Seashore Louis); (13) Case Studies: District Responses to State Leadership (Karen Seashore Louis, Stephen E. Anderson, and Emanda Thomas). Appended are: (1) Scale Reliability for Variables; and (2) Additional Evidence Related to Chapter Seven. (Contains 14 figures, and 23 tables.).

Dispositions of Leadership: The Effects on Student Learning and School Culture stands alone as an approach for developing leaders who are adaptive and can thrive in unpredictable settings. Educational leadership is a domain of its own, apart from business and industry, combining an effective learning environment for students and adults. Dispositions are acquired in the interactions between skillful thinking and circumstances that defy simplistic solutions. The five dispositions, as illustrated in the book, provide educational leaders with maps of the territory and examples of habits for intelligent responses to complex problems. Educational leaders must develop adaptive competence, the capability of applying prior leaning to a novel setting, while assessing the impact of potential solutions. This book challenges the utility of traditional command-and-control models that are no longer capable of supporting school leaders. Grounded in extensive research and review of leadership literature. Dispositions of Leadership: The Effects on Student Learning and School Culture describes how an effective educational leader in the Information Age applies dispositional thinking in order to be adaptive, self-aware and responsive to others.

The change in paradigm in our field is away from the great man or woman theory of leadership and the teacher in his or her own classroom to the development of learning communities which value differences and support critical reflection and encourage members to question, challenge, and debate teaching and learning issues. How to achieve such learning communities is far from clear, but we believe the areas of problem-based learning (PBL) and organizational learning (OL) offer valuable clues. The indications are that the successful educational restructuring agenda depends on teams of leaders, whole staffs and school personnel, working together (i.e., OL) linking evidence and practice in genuine collaboration (i.e., PBL). The book is unique in that it is both about and uses these two concepts.

Critically examine the intersections of learning and leadership. Using L. Dee Fink's taxonomy of signicant learning as a scaffold, experts in leadership education explain connections between emerging scholarship of teaching and learning and current trends in leadership, how to develop a more complex understanding of the levers of leadership learning, the environments that promote meaningful and measurable leadership learning, and the evidence behind such a practice. This volume examines: the role of leadership educator, the roles of authenticity (being true to one’s self) and criticality in education (interrogating beliefs and questioning power dynamics), select learning theories and their implications for leadership learning, and strategies for constructing leadership-related learning outcomes and assessing leadership learning. The Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Student Leadership explores leadership concepts and pedagogical topics of interest to high school and college leadership educators. Issues are grounded in scholarship and feature practical applications and best practices in youth and adult leadership education.
