Summary
Annotation. Since the publication of Building Leadership Capacity in Schools in 1998, educators around the world have used Linda Lambert s ideas to strengthen their own institutions. Lambert subsequently visited some of these schools to see how her book had affected them. Though all the educators she spoke with agreed on the importance of high leadership capacity, they also had many questions about how best to achieve this goal. Leadership Capacity for Lasting School Improvement is the author s attempt to answer those questions. Lambert begins this book by outlining the conditions necessary for high leadership capacity, followed by a comprehensive overview of steps schools should take to meet these criteria. According to the author, the five major prerequisites for high leadership capacity are: Skillful participation in the work of leadership Inquiry-based use of data to inform decisions and practice Broad involvement and collective responsibility for student learning Reflective practice that leads to innovation High or steadily improving student achievement In discussing each of these items, Lambert quotes at length from her conversations with educators worldwide, offering real-life examples of leadership enhancement techniques in practice. The book is also filled with questions and activities for the reader, a rubric and continuum of emerging teacher leadership, staff and school surveys, and a district problem-solving policy--making it ideal for novice and veteran educators alike. Linda Lambert is founder of and professor emeritus at the Center for Educational Leadership at California State University, Hayward. She is coauthor of The Constructivist Leader (1995) and Who Will Save Our Schools: Teachers as Constructivist Leaders (1997) and author of Building Leadership Capacity in Schools (1998)
