Practicing The Art Of Leadership: A Problem-based Approach To Implementing The ISLLC Standards

This self-help book introduces a number of scenarios that incorporate the behaviors supported by the ISLLC Standards. Its effective case scenario approach prepares prospective school leaders to address actual school challenges that occur on a daily basis. In addition, it familiarizes readers with the ISSLC Standards and enables them to conduct a self-assessment relative to meeting those standards. Unlike similar texts, the author provides responses to difficult and challenging issues that are grounded in theory and supported by best practice. This enables learners to examine, compare, and make decisions about well-documented responses and in turn, apply their own ideas. Chapter topics include Leadership in Today's Schools, Organizational Influences on Leadership, Communication in Today's Schools, Decision-Making: Quality and Acceptance, Managing Conflict in Today's Schools, and Facilitating Change in Schools. For education professionals preparing for leadership roles.

This book does a nice job of clearly illustrating the ISLLC standards, and was the only preparation resource I used (other than the ETS prep kit) before passing my SLLA test for the CA administrative credential. It is well written, and thoughtfully organized. Especially helpful were the wide variety of senarios. As an educator with primarily high school experience, it was very useful to read examples from K-8. After reading the book, and spending time reflecting on the problems described, I felt much better informed about implementing the ISLLC standards. Without hesitation I would recommend it for those preparing to take the administrative test.

I love this book. It shows me how to apply the standards for leadership in a practical way. It helps me to put the theory that I'm reading into practice. I also like it because it isn't difficult or dry reading. I'm usually very interested in the material.

The reading is smooth and well labelled into topics. The scenarios are helpful for promoting thinking about what we would do in each situation. The only downside is the print is somewhat small but I am also somewhat old. If you are thinking about making the transition to a building leader (or simply want to become a more aware educator), this book is for you. RJM

This is a really good book. All principals should have this book on hand, even veterans.

I needed to purchase this book for a class and I found it very interesting. In Massachusetts, we do not talk a lot about the ISLLC standards so this was a good book to get me up to speed with this national standard.

Needed this book short notice for my Master's class. Describition of book was perfect. A few marks inside but nothing that effects the readability of the book. I would trust this seller.
