Summary

"Transformative Curriculum Leadership" provides concrete guidance on how to practice a curriculum based on problem solving that integrates constructivist learning with democratic understanding. The book is organized around the leadership experiences of the assistant superintendent, and it contains a wealth of guiding rubrics, figures, images, and illustrations. In addition to providing well-integrated, step-by-step problem solving guidance, it remains a theoretically sophisticated, cutting-edge integration of curriculum theory and leadership practice.
