"This book contributes to the literature on teacher leadership with a particular focus on schoolwide excellence in teaching, learning, and assessment. The exercises are filled with solid and practical but generative ideas."
—Richard Ackerman, Professor

Rediscover the importance of teacher leadership in revitalizing schools!

Teacher leadership is a transformative process that can drive school and community reform. This revised edition of the groundbreaking bestseller builds on current research to help teachers and administrators work together to foster, develop, and support teacher leadership.

Principals and staff developers will learn how collaborating with teacher leaders can result in significantly improved school outcomes. With the Teachers as Leaders Framework, teachers can become leaders who facilitate communities of learning, strive for pedagogical excellence, confront barriers in the school's culture and structures, and nurture a culture of success. Featured in the second edition are:

  • Five new school case studies with insights about the complexity of teacher leadership
  • Expanded discussion of the capacity-building process for teacher leaders and principals
  • An outline of a school development program based on teacher leadership and parallel leadership

With exercises for systematically developing teacher leaders, the second edition of this invaluable guide is for every educator who believes in teacher leadership as a crucial step toward making schools a source of instruction and inspiration.
