Second International Handbook of Educational Leadership and Administration
The first International Handbook of Educational Leadership and Administration (Leithwood et al.) was published in 1996 and quickly became something of a best seller for reference works within education. Such success, we suggest, was at least partly due to the unprecedented global waves of concern for improving schools launched in the mid 1980's, combined with a widespread belief in leadership as the single most powerful contribution to such improvement. The roots of this belief can be found in evidence produced by the early effective schools research, although there is a romance with leadership! as an explanation for success in many non-school enterprises, as well. During the two-year period during which this current handbook was being written, activity in the realms of school leadership, school improvement, and leadership development gained further momentum. The English government created its new National College of School Leadership, and several Asian nations announced new initiatives in leadership selection, preparation, and development.

Academic Freedom in a Democratic South Africa: Essays and Interviews on Higher Education and the Humanities
How do we understand academic freedom today? Does it still have relevance in a global reconfiguring of higher education in the interests of the economy, rather than the public good? And locally, is academic freedom no more than an inconvenient ideal, paid lip service to South Africa's Constitution as an individual right, but neglected in institutional practice? This book argues that the core content of academic freedom-the principle of supporting and extending open intellectual enquiry-is essential to realizing the full public value of higher education. John Higgins emphasizes the central role that the humanities, and the particular forms of argument and analysis they embody, bring to this task. Each chapter embodies the particular force of a critical literacy in action, one which brings into play the combined force of historical inquiry, theoretical analysis, and precise attention to the textual dynamics of all statement so as to challenge and confront the received ideas of the day. These provocative analyses are complemented by probing interviews with three key figures from the Critical Humanities: Terry Eagleton, who discusses the deforming effects of managerialism in British universities; Edward W. Said, who argues for increased recognition of the democratizing force of the humanities; and Jakes Gerwel, who presents some of the most recent challenges for the realization of a humanist politics in South Africa.

Grounded in constructivist teachings, this popular text demonstrates how teachers can use technology to engage and support meaningful learning of their students. Organized around learning processes such as inquiring, experimenting, writing, modeling, community building, communicating, designing, visualizing, and assessing, Meaningful Learning with Technology, Fourth Edition, demonstrates for the reader how learners can use different technologies for meaningful learning.

The text is further strengthened by the inclusion of practical application with technologies that many teachers currently use; discussion of widely available web-based tools for learning and collaboration; and the addition of Assessing Meaningful Teaching and Learning rubrics which give readers a tool for reflecting on their practice. Each chapter extends learning by culminating with questions and issues for readers to think about.

Professional Standards for Teachers and School Leaders: A Key to School Improvement
What do the professional standards mean for teachers and school leaders? Everyone working in education needs a clear understanding of the professional standards required of teachers and school leaders. Written by a team of expert and well-respected contributors, this book provides the definitive guide to the standards that are now widely used for initial teacher training, induction, continuing professional development and performance management. In addition it covers the standards for subject leaders, which underpin the national programme for subject leaders, and the standards for headteachers, which are now used as an essential requirement for headship. The main element of each of the standards reflects the broad dimensions of teaching and leadership, covering everything from planning and assessing learning to relations with the wider community and managing one's own performance and development. Clearly explaining the nature of the standards the writers demonstrate how they relate to the real world of teaching and leadership and point out key issues for the future. The final chapters of the book set the application of standards into a more critical framework and suggest how the standards can meet future as well as current needs.

The Pathologizing and Complicity of Brown Boys : Minoritized High School Students in Danger
Despite the abolishment of discriminatory policies that have historically marginalized many students from certain racial and ethnic groups, there are still groups in North America that continue to experience the lasting effects of this discrimination. One such group is South Asian boys. This book - grounded in twelve months of critical ethnographic fieldwork at a secondary school in North America - attempts to fulfill three objectives. First, it examines how educators and educational leaders pathologize the lived experiences of South Asian boys or Brown boys , and how they engage in deficit theorizing discourses and practices. Second, it shows how Brown boys are complicit in the pathologizing of their own identities, which can exacerbate their disaffection and failure at school. Third, it provides all educators and educational leaders with alternative pedagogical, curricular, institutional, and relational approaches to not only understand the schooling experiences of disaffected South Asian male students, but to mitigate the factors that may exacerbate the disaffection of all minoritized students.

The Creative Community College: Leading Change Through Innovation
Turning adversity into opportunity, overcoming obstacles, building alliances, systems, and programs that lead to success-each chapter of this popular publication tells a unique story about the distinct challenges community colleges face. It also details the unique responses of community college leaders with the vision to overcome the challenges and the resistance. Take this opportunity to explore how creative and transformational leadership can turn adversity into success. Community college leaders share their real-world experiences including the successes, failures, and risks that led to strengthened institutions, more successful alliances, and the creation of new systems. But this book is really about leadership: creative and transformational leadership. Each of the chapters tells a story of unique challenges and equally unique responses by community college leaders who built alliances, systems, and programs, often facing significant obstacles and even active resistance. In The Creative Community College, these leaders share their success, their failures, and the risks they took to strengthen their institutions, to build alliances with school systems, and to create new systems.

International Guide to Student Achievement
The International Guide to Student Achievement brings together and critically examines the major influences shaping student achievement today. There are many, often competing, claims about how to enhance student achievement, raising the questions of What works? and What works best? World-renowned bestselling authors, John Hattie and Eric M. Anderman have invited an international group of scholars to write brief, empirically-supported articles that examine predictors of academic achievement across a variety of topics and domains. Rather than telling people what to do in their schools and classrooms, this guide simply provides the first-ever compendium of research that summarizes what is known about the major influences shaping students' academic achievement around the world. Readers can apply this knowledge base to their own school and classroom settings. The 150+ entries serve as intellectual building blocks to creatively mix into new or existing educational arrangements and aim for quick, easy reference. Chapter authors follow a common format that allows readers to more seamlessly compare and contrast information across entries, guiding readers to apply this knowledge to their own classrooms, their curriculums and teaching strategies, and their teacher training programs.

Pathways to Educational Transformation and Development: Policies, Plans, and Lessons
A significant turning point in education in developing nations took place as the designated countries acceded to political independence, having crossed the border from centuries of colonial rule. Education was ascribed human capital value, and was considered a vital contribution to the planning and development process.In Pathways to Educational Transformation and Development, Dr. London chronicles this transformation in education in one developing nation, Trinidad and Tobago. Strategies adopted, as well as some triumphs and failures, are highlighted, but the lessons that the episodes impart to the educational development planner are the most enduring features of the book. Pathways is a significant contribution to the international thrust of education development in the aftermath of decolonization.
