Thrive: How Schools Will Win the Education Revolution
Traditional schools today are one of many options for students and learning. Any school needs a powerful value proposition that shouts to families, Pick us! from all of the options they have. Schools that increase their value proposition over time will have a greater chance of survival; those that fail to boost their perceived value will tend towards failure. One profound lessons sticks out: the tools of change are neither difficult to understand nor complicated to implement. The difference between schools that thrive and those that may wilt or die during this period of evolution is not just about understanding how your school can thrive; it's about actually doing it. It takes time and sustained commitment. That part is up to you.

It will make sense of the often contradictory literature on coaching by promoting a new approach, that of Blended Coaching, which recognizes that effective coaches move between facilitative and instructional approaches in their practice.

Educational Leadership: Culture and Diversity
`A highly recommendable and powerful work...I have found this book to be both a revelatory mirror on past events and an inviting window to future prospects. I am certain that it will be of equal or greater value to all those involved and interested in the tangled complexities, and inherent rewards, of educational leadership, particularly within international or cross-cultural contexts' - Daniel H. Jarvis, International Review of Education `Clive Dimmock and Allan Walker's books is a valuable addition to the overcrowded literature on leadership. This is a useful and important book because citizenship, globalization and the tensions with nationality should be the concern of all who lead any school; even monofaith, monoethic and monolingual schools' - Tim Brighouse, TES Friday 'The authors offer a rigorous and systematic analysis based on careful definition, illustration and discussion which demonstrates the importance of understanding culture, leadership and their interaction in different contexts: in doing so they provide a powerful antidote to the simplistic export of ideas and lay foundations for a more sophisticated conceptual framework for the study of educational leadership' - John West-Burnham, International Leadership Centre, University of Hull This key text in educational leadership focuses on the significance of the context and culture of schools. The book addresses the growing recognition of cultural differences between societies and the resultant differences in schooling. It also deals with vital issues relating to multicultural education and the leadership of multicultural schools. Drawing on their first-hand experience, the authors explore the differences evident in classroom teaching and learning, as well as organizational, leadership and management aspects of schools. They show how such differences can make over-reliance on Anglo-American approaches misleading, ineffective and restrictive. Key features of the book include: - a methodology to support the emerging field of international and comparative educational leadership and management - in-depth comparative analysis of Anglo-American and Asian schooling and educational management - the leadership of multi-cultural schools This book is essential reading for professionals and students of educational leadership and management, as well as administrators.

The Moral Imperative of School Leadership
`The Moral Imperative of School Leadership is an important read for school leader and system administrators, not so much because it provides a prescription of the future of public education, but more because it elevates the moral imperative of public schooling and enshrine s the view that effective school leadership must be drive from a deep moral purpose' - Journal of Educational Administration `The Moral Imperative of School Leadership is sequel to what many heads consider Michael Fullan's best and most practical book, Leading in a Culture of Change. Here he follows up moral purpose, brought into sharp relief in individual schools. Without moral purpose, nothing of value is achieved. We learn how it is developed effectively and Michael Fullan makes the difficult but important case that truly moral school leadership recognizes its obligation to the wider community and other schools, an argument that those of us pushing for collegiates will welcome' - Tim Brighouse, Times Educational Supplement `The Moral Imperative of School Leadership is another slim volume in a series of such texts by this powerful figure and, after a series of understandably laudatory statements by colleagues and admirers, actually commences by reflecting back on his previous text What's Worth Fighting For in the Principalship (1997). As one has come to expect from this eminent writer this is a highly readable, well structured and accessible text that is above all positive. Indeed I have no doubt that many will find the work inspirational' - Mark Brundett, School Leadership and Management The author examines the moral purpose of school leadership and its critical role in `changing the context' in which the role is embedded. In this bold step forward, Michael Fullan calls for principals to become agents as well as beneficiaries of the processes of school change. Concepts explored in depth include: } why `changing the context' should be the main agenda for the principalship } why barriers to the principalship exist } why the principal should be seen as the Chief Operating Officer of a school } why the role of the principal should figure more prominently within the system.

Assessing Teacher Dispositions: Five Standards-Based Steps to Valid Measurement Using the DAATS Model
This companion volume to the authors' Assessing Teacher Competency provides schools of education, teacher induction programs, and school districts with the safe, valid, and reliable framework for assessing and measuring teacher dispositions that they have long sought. Teacher affect and disposition have always been more difficult to define and measure than teacher knowledge and skills (competency), but together those three measures define the standards of best practice set by NCATE, INTASC, and NBPTS. The authors' 5-step DAATS model for measuring teacher affect and dispositions is research based, field tested, and presented in a step-by-step sequence with worksheets, training activities, and examples from both pre-service and in-service settings. The DAATS model for assessing teacher dispositions may be used on its own, or it may be used in conjunction with the authors' CAATS model for assessing teacher competency (knowledge and skills) as part of a comprehensive assessment system.

Out of Women's Experience: Creating Relational Leadership
This innovative book proposes a new model for comprehensive and effective leadership, drawn from the personal experiences and accounts of female educational leaders. The authors demonstrate how women conceptualize and practice their educational leadership roles in ways that differ significantly from most of their male counterparts. In redefining these differences as 'relational leadership', Regan and Brooks suggest that the attributes and skills that women bring to leadership are accessible and valuable to female and male school leaders alike.

The School Leader's Guide to Student Learning Supports: New Directions for Addressing Barriers to Learning
Everyday, a wide range of learning, behavioural, physical, and emotional problems interfere with the ability of students to participate effectively and fully benefit from the instruction teachers provide. Such barriers to learning encompass both learning disabilities and special needs as well as a wide range of external factors stemming from restricted enrichment opportunities. This guide for school leaders, and its companion volume for site-based staff, emphasizes frameworks and strategies for dealing with the entire range of learning, behaviour, and emotional problems seen in schools within a context that emphasizes student and staff strengths, resilience, assets, and protective factors. The authors provide a four-pronged approach to addressing barriers to learning, emphasizing adopting an intervention framework that is comprehensive, multifaceted and cohesive; rethinking infrastructure and policy; and using a sophisticated approach to facilitating major systemic changes. Built on decades of research, and endorsed by more than 20 professional associations, the authors' approach provides specific tools and strategies for understanding and assessing the gap between what students need and what they are receiving, as well as creating the analyses and implementation frameworks that will lead to new and better directions for addressing barriers to learning. A series of orienting questions at the start of each chapter will help readers visualize how the content applies to their own specific schools and districts and can also be used to guide discussions with colleagues and community, and as a focus for staff development sessions. More than 75 figures, guides, and tools for analysis and capacity building are also included in the book, as are cartoons, quotations, and case studies.

Working With and Evaluating Difficult School Employees
Managing difficult employees is one of the most challenging aspects of a headteacher's job. Working With and Evaluating Difficult School Employees is designed to help educational leaders learn and apply specific techniques and strategies for effectively dealing with difficult school employees. Drawing on their extensive experiences in working productively with marginal, deficient, and downright difficult school employees, John F. Eller and Sheila Eller provide essential information and proven strategies to help administrators improve their leadership skills and competencies in dealing with employees who may have negative attitudes, display a lack of awareness about their behaviour, blame others for problems, or are marginal performers. This resource opens each chapter with an overview of the content, offers a summary with questions for reflection, and presents easy-to-understand concepts, actual stories and vignettes, and abundant templates, bullet points, and key points throughout. A ready reference that allows readers to go to the specific section that meets their immediate needs, the book outlines: - The nature of difficult employees - Skills and tools for confronting the behaviours of difficult employees and achieving successful results - Self-protection techniques for handling emotionally-draining encounters while staying on track with an improvement agenda - Specific strategies for working with teachers, paraprofessionals and teaching assistants, administrative assistants and office staff, and custodians.
