A new learning-oriented leadership model to help principals support teacher development and growth!

How can you, as a principal, create opportunities for teacher learning that really work to support teachers with different needs and preferences? There is wide agreement that the best teacher development is informal, diverse, democratic, school-based, and continuous. The best programs ignite and sustain teachers′ excitement in learning, growing, and changing their classroom practices. Drago-Severson presents case studies from 25 diverse schools across the U.S. and examines strategies that help shape a school climate of teacher support, growth, and learning. In addition, she suggests many creative solutions to secure any resources needed to implement this learning-oriented professional growth model.

Concepts covered in Helping Teachers Learn include:

  • A new model of learning-oriented leadership that can be tailored to particular settings or individuals
  • Adult learning principles that inform teacher growth and development, and why they are essential to effective teacher development programs
  • The Four Pillars: teaming, providing leadership roles, engaging in collegial inquiry, and mentoring
  • Real-world examples of principals sharing leadership, building community, and managing change

Enhance your professional development model to better support teacher growth and development, as well as your own self-development as a principal.
