Building leadership capacity in schools by Linda Lambert ( Book )
4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,378 libraries worldwide
"In this book, Linda Lambert takes a close look at leadership in schools, which today involves far more than a single leader. The author defines leadership as the learning processes among participants in a community -- processes that lead toward a shared sense of purpose. Leadership capacity refers to the breadth of participation in leadership and the depth of skill that teachers, administrators, parents, students, and community members bring to the work. The stories of three schools -- an elementary school with low leadership capacity, a middle school with moderate leadership capacity, and a high school with high leadership capacity-reveal how school people can lead their communities to improve student learning. The stories show five features of effective leadership: (1) broad-based, skillful participation in the work of leadership, (2) inquiry-based use of information to inform decisions and practice, (3) roles and responsibilities that reflect broad involvement and collaboration, (4) reflective practice/innovation as a norm, and (5) high student achievement. This book outlines what schools and districts must do to build leadership capacity, including how to get started, how to sustain the momentum, and how to design school districts capable of supporting such work.

Totally positive teaching a five-stage approach to energizing students and teachers by Joseph Ciaccio ( Book )
6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 959 libraries worldwide
Do you remember that one great teacher who sparked a love of learning in you? It was fun to be in that class and you could tell the teacher enjoyed being there, too. But how do these energized educators stay motivated day in and day out? In Totally Positive Teaching, Joseph Ciaccio shares an approach that transformed him from a burned out veteran teacher struggling joylessly through each day to a professional who has fun with his students, guiding them to success while enjoying the teaching process. The conviction that people can adopt a new attitude is at the heart of Ciaccio s Totally Positive Approach. When teachers enter the classroom with an upbeat attitude supported by constructive teaching techniques, they can build trusting partnerships with students. Ciaccio describes five techniques for creating a daily positive learning experience that nurtures student achievement, devising activities to meet the mutual needs of student and teacher, changing personal counterproductive feelings, responding to student behavior problems, helping underachievers become self motivated, developing instructional strategies to keep students engaged. Ciaccio provides plenty of examples to illustrate how these techniques actually work in the classroom. He also includes dozens of strategies and tips for introducing the Totally Positive Approach and making it take hold in your own work. When teachers use the Totally Positive Approach, students gain confidence, take control of their lives, and feel that they belong. Just as important, teachers enjoy enormous professional and personal growth, seeing with new clarity how their own attitudes and actions help shape the next generation. Totally Positive Teaching is an inspirational guide to approaching each school day with new energy, insight, and satisfaction.
