Summary

This book is best suited for a culminating or practicum course in a graduate educational leadership preparation program. This self-help book introduces a number of scenarios that incorporate the behaviors supported by the ISLLC Standards. Its effective case scenario approach prepares prospective school leaders to address actual school challenges that occur on a daily basis. In addition, it familiarizes students with the ISSLC Standards and enables them to conduct a self-assessment relative to meeting those standards. Unlike similar texts, the author provides responses to difficult and challenging issues that are grounded in theory and supported by best practice. This enables students to examine, compare, and make decisions about well-documented responses and in turn, apply their own ideas.
