Real people, Real issues
Through video vignettes featuring educators enrolled in a principal preparation program, INSIDE LEADERSHIP encourages new and aspiring principals to consider some of the key issues facing school leaders today and the conditions under which they do their work. How do principals strike the right balance between instructional leadership and day-to-day management tasks? How do they handle the overwhelming responsibilities that come with the principalship? What is the most effective way to provide feedback to a teacher after an observation? These are just some of the questions that are brought to life in this groundbreaking collection. An outgrowth of Thirteen's award-winning documentary series A Year of Change: Leadership in the Principal's Office, INSIDE LEADERSHIP blends theory and practice, guidance from seasoned veterans, and cutting edge thinking on what it takes to be an effective and successful school leader.
