Focuses on how teachers can develop and improve their leadership skills. As parents, communities, the media, and schools clamor for school reform, there is increasing recognition that teachers must take a leading role if significant change is truly to occur. Addressing this need, the authors present step-by-step methods for teachers striving to gain influence in leadership roles, including: * A definition of teacher leadership and examples of teachers in leadership roles * A framework on how to approach the development of teacher leaders * Suggestions for creating a friendly school environment and support systems for teacher leaders * Tips at the end of each chapter directed to teachers, principals, superintendents, and district staff * Self-assessment instruments: the Readiness for Teacher Leadership Survey and the Philosophy of Education Inventory (the latter developed by Lorraine Zinn)

In Teacher Leadership, Lieberman and Miller discuss current changes in the teacher's role, and make sense of the research on teacher leadership. They offer case studies of innovative programs - such as the National Writing Project - that provide teachers with opportunities to lead within a professional community. In addition, they tell stories of individual teachers - from Maine to California - who are able to lead in a variety of contexts. Teacher Leadership offers a new standard of teaching and community that recognizes all teachers as leaders. It shows how to develop learning communities that include rather than exclude, create knowledge rather than merely apply it, and that offer challenge and support to both new and experienced teachers. This book is a volume in the Jossey-Bass Leadership Library in Education - a series designed to meet the demand for new ideas and insights about leadership in schools.

Co-published with Kappa Delta Pi, The Power of Teacher Leaders provides a comprehensive resource for understanding the ways that teacher leaders foster positive change in their schools. Distinct from school administrators, teacher leaders are professionals who remain in the classroom and use their specialized knowledge and skills to improve student achievement, influence others, and build organizational capacity. Written by leading educational researchers, each chapter of The Power of Teacher Leaders describes a different way that teachers are leading. Moving beyond the question of why teacher leaders are important and how such work is implemented, the contributing scholars to this collection offer a critical examination of the field by presenting original research, case studies, and programs in practice. Topics covered include how teachers become leaders, their wide-ranging leadership roles, and the effects of teacher leadership on student academic success and school communities. A cohesive edited collection, this book demonstrates how teacher leaders play an increasingly active role in the improvement of student learning, teacher professional development, and school climate.
