For Principalship and Educational Leadership/Introduction to Educational Leadership courses. To equip prospective educational leaders to understand ISLLC standards and develop the skills to put them into practice, this problem-based text transforms theory into practice through realistic scenarios patterned on those that appear on national examinations. After presenting the two sets of standards that inform leadership and the organizations that develop them, coverage explores the full spectrum of educational leadership theories and their practical applications to actual classrooms and schools. Throughout the material, the author shares numerous research-based reflections on the behaviors displayed in the cases, thus broadening their application to real-world educational situations.
