During the past quarter century, conceptions of leadership have evolved in concert with breakthrough discoveries in science and generative learning. Liberating Leadership Capacity captures these new ideas through the integration of the authors’ earlier works in constructivist leadership and leadership capacity. What emerges is a pathway through which educators can become the primary designers of their own learning and that of their students, thus creating sustainable systems of high leadership capacity. This vision of leadership reframes professional learning designs and knowledge creation, describing how these ideas are richly manifested in local, national, and international programs. The context is democratic communities; the learning is constructivist; the leadership is shared. The result is wise schools, organizations, and societies. Liberating Leadership Capacity speaks to all adult learners who are engaged in educational improvement. Book Features: A new concept of leadership as fostering capacity through the complex, dynamic processes of purposeful, reciprocal learning.Leadership strategies constructed from the values of learning, democracy, equity and diversity.Professional learning designed to involve community members in building leadership capacity. A timely approach for the effective implementation of the Every Child Succeeds Act (S. 1177).An in-depth analysis of the standards movement through the lens of capacity building.An understanding of systemic change as an organic process arising from practice rather than being imposed on practice—approaches that unleash a sense of agency and wisdom. “This book strikes a chord with those who believe that emerging leadership should define the experiences of students and teachers alike.” —Deborah Walker, Collaborative for Teaching and Learning (CTL) “The authors have designed a model that is at once sustainable, distributive, ecological, and transformational.” —Dean Fink, author and consultant “Describes organizational conditions that promote skillful dialogue, continual learning, building trust, and sharing a common vision among members. In such schools teachers become the leaders of learning and students become the leaders of the future.” —Arthur L. Costa, professor emeritus, California State University, Sacramento

Do you want your school or district to truly become a learning organization? How do you foster lasting and meaningful change? How do you avoid rejection of your new approach to teaching and learning? If you've been involved in a school change effort, you most likely have struggled with these questions. To ease this struggle, Douglas B. Reeves has proposed a new framework to promote effective change efforts through teacher leadership. In this book, you will explore not only cutting-edge research findings, but also practical applications that can help improve student achievement and educational equity. You can learn how to achieve lasting results as an educator and school leader. You can learn from other teacher researchers how to infuse your classroom, school, or district with enthusiasm, meaningful teaching, improved results, and greater satisfaction. Even as you strive for innovation, you naturally want to avoid having the next new thing become the latest old thing. To achieve lasting change, educators must embrace evidence-based decision making rather than the fact-free debate. Reeves has found that educators more readily accept decisions they disagree with if they believe the decision-making process was fair--not based on opinion or hierarchy. Reeves aims for you to help him build a network of teacher leaders based on this new evidence-based framework that will foster resilient learning organizations. Come along--explore, act, and share.

Once you've established a professional learning community (plc), you need to get this ascd (Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) action tool to ensure that your plc stays focused on addressing teaching methods and student learning problems. This ascd action tool explains how your plc can use collaborative action research to formulate questions about topics of your own choosing, take action, and then collect and analyze data to answer those questions. This action research process helps your plc unearth the root causes of issues and plan corrective actions while fostering ongoing and collaborative teacher staff development. Dozens of learning activities--checklists, rubrics, planning guides, and reflection prompts--lead your plc through the steps of: (1) Developing a common understanding of effective group process and collaborative action research; (2) Identifying a meaningful starting point for inquiry, thinking through a rationale and vision for group work, and generating questions to guide the inquiry; (3) Encouraging meaningful and productive discourse among members; (4) Promoting the effective use of action planning and data; and (5) Supporting continuous assessment of results and reflection on effective practices. Each tool in the collection includes an explanation of why and how to use the tool. Whether your school is new to this action research or is already engaged in the process, this action tool gives you an easy, go-to resource that is perfect for instructional leaders of all sorts--grade-level leaders, department leaders, principals, assistant principals, and staff developers--who are responsible for facilitating improvement.

Conducting Educational Research: A Primer for Teachers and Administrators is designed to provide the step-wise, content-specific information masters students must possess to design, conduct, and disseminate a qualitative, quantitative or mixed methods classroom or school research study. The text will help school professionals to see both the value of being life-long critical consumers of educational research and the merit of using research in helping them to become teacher leaders and/or change agents in their own professional settings. Specifically, the text would provide master level students with: the background they need to see the importance of educational research in their daily professional lives instruction in all aspects of a typical five-chapter research design (introduction/literature review/methodology/results/conclusion, discussion, implications) the tools needed to locate and critically review published educational research instruction on common qualitative methodologies instruction on the types of quantitative methodologies that master level candidates would be most likely to use knowledge of the importance of being intelligent consumers of existing research ways to engage the student in a reflection plan for the future."
