Co-published with UCEA, this exciting new textbook is the first to tackle the ISLLC Standard #2-Instructional Leadership. This unique volume helps aspiring school leaders examine their beliefs and practices about instructional leadership in relation to ISLLC Standard 2 and provides the background, learning experiences, and analytical tools for instructional leadership in today's world. The role of instructional leadership is changing in light of recent cultural political shifts, related curriculum reforms, accountability policies, and changing demographics. Today's instructional leaders must not only have expertise in culture building and supervision skills, but also in adult learning, curriculum, and the role of politics. The New Instructional Leadership and the ISLLC Standards explores contemporary and future instructional leadership through problem-posing cases, inquiry projects, and other learning experiences. Topics covered includes collaboration, curricular programming, approaches to supervision of instruction, accountability, monitoring, and evaluation. Theoretically grounded and research-based, this book will help aspiring and current leaders to understand instructional leadership and help them to sustain strong curricular and instructional programs conducive to learning and growth in their increasingly diverse schools and communities.
