Foundations of Educational Leadership provides a fresh and research-based perspective on educational leadership, exploring 10 specific aspects of ‘glocalization’ in which educational leaders must be literate in order to establish and sustain relevant and useful educational experiences for students in their schools. In addition to covering traditional concepts such as culture, instructional leadership, professional ethics, and politics, well-known authors Brooks and Normore also introduce several conventionally neglected, cutting edge concepts like spirituality, holistic health, and information leadership. This important book emphasizes how a framework of learning, literacy, leadership, and reflection is critical to the preparation and practice of educational leaders. Foundations of Educational Leadership ensures aspiring and practicing leaders will be prepared to influence processes and outcomes for creating a more just and equitable environment for all students.
- Each chapter focuses on what leaders need to learn, the concepts with which they need to be literate, how to lead in the area, and aspects on which they should reflect.
- Discussion sections at the end of each chapter include prompts, questions, and activities suited for engaging ideas, alone, or with classmates.
- An eResource features additional resources and video content.
