Their work is based on the powerful assumption that all of us—especially teachers—have the right, capacity, and responsibility to lead."
—Linda Lambert, Professor Emeritus

Empower teachers as leaders to improve student learning and performance!

This third edition of a bestseller draws on the authors′ two decades of experience in studying and observing the work of teacher leaders. Marilyn Katzenmeyer and Gayle Moller expand on the definition of leadership and its importance to improving outcomes in schools, and cover the career-long development of teacher leaders from preservice preparation programs through ongoing support for veteran teacher leaders.

This exceptional, teacher-focused resource discusses three factors critical to stepping into a leadership role: sustaining teacher leadership relationships between adults in the school, organizational structures, and the actions of the principal. The authors discuss the challenges that many teacher leaders face, including:

  • Deciding to accept a leadership role
  • Building principal–teacher leader relationships
  • Working with peers
  • Facilitating professional learning for themselves and others

With the latest research from the teacher leadership literature and new teacher inventories and surveys, this updated edition of Awakening the Sleeping Giant demonstrates the benefits of investing in teachers and their learning to sustain meaningful change in today′s schools.
