Hidden in Plain Sight
We all know teams, who work interdependently to achieve a shared purpose, will improve student learning by raising the standard of pedagogical practices across the team. Unfortunately, schools have abused and misused the term team for far too long. Working interdependently doesn’t happen because we label a team a learning community or administratively mandate the work of teams through fixed schedules and objectives. This book will help senior leaders develop transformative leadership capacity in their school, by: understanding how to assess the capacity of each team, differentiating expectations for different middle leaders and allocating resources to develop the requisite capacity for each middle leader. Middle leaders will learn how to advocate for themselves and their team, by being able to: define their role, understand how their role changes as the team develops and harness conflict to leverage the individual skills and experience of all team members.
