Description - Teacher Leadership by Ann Lieberman
"Lieberman and Miller have written still another powerful book that takes our understanding of leadership and communities of practice to a new level. Written with grace and determination, this is a book that should be widely read." -Thomas J. Sergiovanni, Lillian Radford Professor of Education, Trinity University, San Antonio, Texas "Teachers, teacher educators, school reformers, and educational researchers-anyone who is committed to changing the schools to meet the needs of a changing world-should read Teacher Leadership." -Marilyn Cochran-Smith, professor of education, Boston College and president, American Educational Research Association, Boston, Massachusetts In Teacher Leadership, Lieberman and Miller discuss current changes in the teacher's role, and make sense of the research on teacher leadership. They offer case studies of innovative programs-such as the National Writing Project-that provide teachers with opportunities to lead within a professional community. In addition, they tell stories of individual teachers-from Maine to California-who are able to lead in a variety of contexts.
Teacher Leadership offers a new standard of teaching and community that recognizes all teachers as leaders. It shows how to develop learning communities that include rather than exclude, create knowledge rather than merely apply it, and that offer challenge and support to both new and experienced teachers. This book is a volume in the Jossey-Bass Leadership Library in Education-a series designed to meet the demand for new ideas and insights about leadership in schools.
