Contemporary School Administration: An Introduction

Contemporary School Administration presents a pragmatic approach to school administration as a career choice, offering a broad, comprehensive overview of educational leadership in both public and private schools.

The initial chapters provide a foundation for understanding leadership and management, the primary components of administration. Common questions students ask regarding academic study, licensure, job opportunities, income, and career development are featured in the early chapters. The text is also unique in that it covers critical topics ignored in most other introductory books. Examples of these topics include private schools, women and minorities in administration, and communication. Content does not overlap with subject matter commonly covered in subsequent courses. Material at the end of each chapter can be used for individual and group assignments as well as for class discussions.

This first text in Allyn & Bacon's new Educational Leadership series from Peabody College, clarifies the complex financial issues facing educational administrators and presents them in a clear and engaging manner. This text was developed by the leading scholars in school finance as part of a series from one of the leading Schools of Education in the world.

With its strong basis in current research, and easy-to-use, intuitive features, this book strikes an effective balance between the informational and the pedagogical. It covers trends (both historical and current) in educational finance and includes calculations and problems for students to work, and its Modern approach pays close attention to the new realities of accountability, resource allocation, and policy. The case studies and interactive pedagogy make this a very practical text.

Toward Digital Equity: Bridging the Divide in Education
Twenty-three nationally known educators discuss educational technology and diversity, provide historical and philosophical insights into digital divide issues, and offer practical suggestions for teachers, administrators, and policy-makers. This text is designed to help preservice teachers and future educational leaders understand complex technology issues and prepare them to meet whatever challenges prevent their students from having full access to a quality education through technology. Toward Digital Equity helps educators understand the current state of technology in education and the Digital Divide -what it is, how it emerged, current trends, and potential solutions. It discusses how schools acquire hardware, software, and connectivity, and why some schools experience such success in these endeavors while others are left heartbreakingly behind. Most importantly, it examines the most current research in the effectiveness of technology and pedagogy in diverse settings to make suggestions on how teachers can create powerful learning environments for all students.

Mastering the Possibilities: A Process Approach to Instructional Design
Mastering the Possibilities directly involves students in the process of actually designing instructional events through: (1) a comprehensive overview of instructional design principles as they apply in real settings; (2) explanations of how learning principles can be used to design responsive solutions to instructional problems in a range of settings (e.g. educational and training); (3) examination of the component parts of instructional design in a holistic approach by incorporating a wide range of contemporary instructional and assessment methods; and (4) ongoing reflection of one's own understanding of the instructional design process through dialogue with oneself and involvement in a design project. This learner-centered approach to instructional design gives the student extensive experience in using the principles of instructional design as they learn about them. It is, according to one reviewer, very much involved in guiding instruction, rather than presenting information.
