Powerful Partnerships: A Handbook for Principals Mentoring Assistant Principals
Although assistant principals are key influences in our nation's schools and represent the next generation of school principals, little has been done to address professional development for these administrators. At the local level, assistants often spend their time handling student activities and discipline with little opportunity to exercise more sophisticated leadership. At the state and national levels, the position has not received much attention. Positioning the partnership between principals and assistant principals as a coaching-based relationship serving the best interests of both students and schools, Powerful Partnerships presents specific tools to help principal/assistant principal teams define and strengthen their significant collaboration and to nurture the development of future school leaders. Through discussion questions and shared activities, this resource provides opportunities for principals and assistant principals to develop a shared vision for their relationship and school, and to design a plan for communication and professional growth. The author examines aspects of instructional leadership including supervising and supporting teachers, classroom walkthroughs, professional learning communities, and using data for school improvement. Principals and assistant principals are invited to study this book together, addressing critical topics such as: - leadership as stewardship - unique leadership challenges involved in working with people - key instructional leadership responsibilities that are shared by both administrators

Fostering Resilience: Expecting All Students to Use Their Minds and Hearts Well
The author defines resilient schools as being focused on the protective factors that foster resilience for its members and are the key to student achievement: caring, high expectations and purposeful support, and ongoing opportunities for meaningful participation. This second edition of Fostering Resiliency: Expecting All Students to Use Their Minds and Hearts Well describes what actual resiliency-building schools look and feel like, and shows school leaders how they can create proactive, systemic school redesign. Based on case studies of schools that are incredibly successful despite various disadvantages, this book offers stories of schools that are 'fighting for their students' hearts and souls' and illustrates how school leaders can translate ideas and goals into a plan to build a resilient learning community in their schools. This new edition features an added case study, revisits the schools that were described in the first edition, and describes how some schools stayed on track, how others veered off track and then got back on, and how still others are fighting their way back to the top. Throughout the book the author discusses common themes:acaring about, respecting, and really knowing both students and staff; teacher empowerment; family involvement; and the use of alternative means of assessment that allow students to show what they have learned and to take pride in their accomplishments.
