In its revised sixth edition, The Principalship continues to emphasize school culture, standards, and building community, while also providing a moral basis for leadership as a means of navigating contextual issues and constraints that principals routinely face. Studying The Principalship, future principals will explore in-depth the array of decisions that they will be confronted with and how those decisions will affect students, teachers, and school policy.

 

Extensively updated, the new edition emphasizes diversity as a part of community building; the importance of instructional and shared leadership; and the building of communities of practice, while the book’s trademark concentration on reflective practice is maintained throughout the text. The sixth edition also contains a new “Some Reflections” feature that appears in most chapters and that offers students a chance for further critical thinking and enriched class discussions.

New to This Edition

  • Expanded coverage of instructional leadership emphasizes the principal’s role in helping to plan, provide, and supervise teaching and learning (Chapters 12 and 13).
  • Case studies describing effective schools encourage students to engage in decision-making about the topics discussed.
  • Discussions about the building of communities of practice (Chapter 5) and shared leadership (Chapter 8) describe these as a way to move beyond collegiality to the development of a shared practice that is more effective for student achievement.
  • Helping teachers become smarter at what they do, a theme of past editions, continues as a theme of this edition with an all new emphasis on the development of smart schools where individual intelligences are aggregated.   Smart schools lead to smart students.
  • “Some Reflections” features have been added to most chapters as a way to involve the reader in reflection and to provide groups of readers with a shared experience that will enrich classroom discussions.
  • A new online Instructor’s Manual with test questions is available to adopters of this text by contacting your local representative.
