About the Author:

Allan A. Glatthorn (1924–2007) was a major contributor to the third and fourth editions; his research used in the preparation of the first and second editions of Writing the Winning Thesis or Dissertation: A Step-by-Step Guide was the foundation for the third edition. He was the Distinguished Research Professor of Education (Emeritus) in the College of Education of East Carolina University, where he advised doctoral students, chaired dissertations, and taught courses in supervision and curriculum. He was formerly Professor of Education at the Graduate School of Education of the University of Pennsylvania. Prior to his university assignments, he was a high school teacher and principal. In his work as a professor, he chaired close to 100 dissertations. He is the author of numerous professional books, several of which have been published by Corwin.

Review:

"I found the book to be a compelling presentation of the key role of principal―understanding curriculum and how to implement effective change in all buildings. I have been searching for a book to use in my principal preparation class on Instructional Leadership and I believe I now have the book that will provide my students a comprehensive view on the principalship. With a continued emphasis on school improvement and the importance of increasing student achievement, this book is an invaluable tool for pre-service and in-service school leaders."
Author: Ted Kaniuka, Associate professor of Educational Leadership

"As principals, we so often get caught up in the day-to-day management of our schools.  We must quit putting out fires and instead focus our attention on leading, specifically as curriculum leaders.  Glatthorn, Jailall and Jailall provide a clear framework with a plan of action to put you and your school on a path to student success.  Whether you need to develop a plan or simply refine the one you have, this book is a must read!"

Author: Stephen Baker, Principal

"Glatthorn, Jailall, and Jailall challenge principals to be leaders of curriculum in their schools, districts, and states as they consider the needs of students and classrooms during a challenging time in education systems across the country."

Author: Kathy T. Spencer, Ed. D.

"The Principal as Curriculum Leader is a blueprint for principals to use when implementing curriculum reform. It brings clarity to the many trends, mandates, and guidelines that masquerade as simple solutions to complex issues. This book should be read and owned by every principal and curriculum leader."

Author: Dr. Jerry V. Congleton, Former Superintendent

"An effective school requires a strong curriculum and high quality execution in every classroom. This can only be achieved when the principal becomes a true curriculum leader. Aspiring administrators and experienced principals will do a better job leading their schools after reading this powerful and practical book."

Author: Chris Terrill, Head of Schools

"The Principal as Curriculum Leader provides insight and practical suggestions to support the principal’s role as a building curriculum leader. This is a must-read guide that outlines the building administrator’s role as is relates to curriculum development, implementation and the impact an effective leader can have on instructional change."

Author: Barbara Haeffner, Director of Curriculum and Instructional Technology

"The Fourth Edition of The Principal as Curriculum Leader: Shaping What is Taught and Tested is the most comprehensive guide I′ve seen to assist all principals in moving from school managers to true 21st century instructional leaders. Glatthorn, Jailall, and Jailall have masterfully integrated ESSA and the revised Professional Standards for Educational Leaders, weaving those tenets into how school districts not only design relevant curriculum plans, but fully implement and assess how those plans are working. This is a must-read text for any school leader who is passionate about strengthening curriculum to raise the level of achievement for all students."

Author: Dr. Gregory E. Hicks, Teaching Assistant Professor, Former Principal and District Administrator

"As the school’s leader, the principal must accept responsibility for curriculum leadership. This book provides a toolkit of ideas, resources, and practical applications that should empower and enrich the principal’s professional life. It clearly provides guidance in improving curriculum design, implementation, and evaluation. Probably most importantly, the book emphasizes the collaborative, respectful relationship that should exist between the principal and the teachers within the school. A key take-away is that education is everyone’s business―from resource allocation by political leadership to expectations of parents―as our country educates its children for the 21st century."
