Shared vision : transformational leadership in American community colleges by John E Roueche( Book )

6 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a study of 256 exemplary community college presidents, this book examines the attributes of outstanding leaders and their ability to orchestrate organizational change.

After chapter 3 reviews the study methodology, chapters 4 and 5 present findings on the demographic and leadership characteristics of the presidents selected for in-depth study. Chapters 6 through 10 discuss key elements of transformational leadership, including shared vision, teamwork and collaborative decision making, institutional climate and the relationship between the institution and the individuals within it, motivation as a means of achieving followers' acceptance of the shared vision, and personal values, integrity, and commitment to learning. Chapter 11 examines women in community college leadership roles. Finally, chapter 12 presents a summary of the research, a discussion of the problems faced by minority leaders, and a review of study implications. The survey instruments and an 85-item bibliography are appended. (Alb)

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within the context of the history of educational discrimination and related social movements in the United States, this book examines the underrepresentation of women and of racial and ethnic minorities in community college leadership. Chapter 1, "Finding Equality in Egalitarian Educational Institutions," presents the premise of the book, that community colleges have not met their responsibilities to these underrepresented groups.

Chapter 3, "Women: Expression and Experience in Academic Literature," looks at the historical and philosophical premises upon which the "woman question" rests, and reviews recent findings concerning the role of women in education and leadership. In chapter 4, "Minorities: Expression and Experience in Academic Literature," the dilemmas and controversies surrounding racial and ethnic equality are scrutinized, drawing on the legal and educational histories of minority groups. Chapter 5, "Affirmative Action: Then and Now," examines the issues and politics of social movements and their challenges to the status quo. In chapter 6, "Inclusionary Practices: Highlighting Exemplary Programs," the achievements of several organizations, programs, and policies now existing throughout the United States are discussed. Chapter 7, "What the Leaders Are Saying: The Voices of Diversity," presents the views of community college leaders from underrepresented groups. Finally, chapter 8, "Getting There from Where You Are: Increasing Representation and Recognition," provides a timeline and strategies for transforming community colleges. (Jmc)

5 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using as a sample the 154 secondary schools selected as the best in America in 1982 by the Department of Education's Secondary School Recognition Program, researchers examined the characteristics that made teachers, administrators, and school climates effective in the pursuit of educational excellence. The first chapter of this book interpreting the study's findings summarizes the problems and solutions cited in the many recent reports urging educational reform. The Model of Excellent Schools resulting from the current study is introduced and an overview of the findings is presented. Chapter 2 describes five characteristics of favorable learning environments that were found in the study's exploration of school climate. Chapter 3 elaborates on the seven attributes of effective administrators revealed by the study and compares them to the eight principles of sound leadership cited by Peters and Waterman. The fourth chapter identifies the 12 characteristics of effective teachers that were found by the study. The study's results as a whole are summarized in chapter 5, and the implications for school boards, administrators, and teachers are considered. Appendixes identify the schools in the study sample, list the principals and teachers participating in the study, describe the research methodology, and cite over 230 references. (Pgd)

Toward instructional accountability; a practical guide to educational change by John E Roueche( Book )

7 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In higher education especially, the obsolescence of skills, knowledge, and competencies in teaching dictates the need for continuous staff development. Given the assumption that superior and innovative instruction that motivates student learning can shape institutional identity as well, this book provides selected readings that advocate a systematic approach to instruction that allows instructors to meet the diverse needs of students. To assist the reader in developing skills, attitudes, and knowledge, the book can serve as a self-contained course in instructional improvement. Sections of this guide, each of which is introduced by a rationale and a set of objectives for study, include ones dealing with individualized instruction, accountability-based instruction, purposes of education, assessment of learning, and evaluation of instructional programs.

High stakes, high performance : making remedial education work by John E Roueche( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American Association of Community Colleges commissioned this study of remedial education in community colleges as a framework for describing context, generating discussion, and encouraging action. Always controversial, remedial education is a multifaceted issue that we have worked with and researched for more than 30 years. The public's and the academy's interest in this aspect of the community college curriculum--what some have called the fulcrum that balances colleges's commitment to excellence with student access and success--has waxed and waned during these years. During the last five years, however, there has been a heightened interest in remedial education--what it is, who provides it, how much it costs, how it is evaluated, and where it belongs.--From Preface p. vii

The creative community college : leading change through innovation( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of all the segments of American higher education, community colleges have been the most flexible, the most responsive to the educational needs of communities, and the most resourceful, taking calculated risks and leveraging scarce resources to accomplish their educational missions. The innovative and creative spirit of these unique institutions is captured well by the authors of The Creative Community College : Leading Change Through Innovation. The colleges and systems that are profiled in this volume are exemplary of what is wonderful about community colleges and how they can turn adversity into success. But this book is really about leadership: creative and transformational leadership. Each of the chapters tells a story of unique challenges and equally unique responses by community college leaders who built alliances, systems, and programs, often facing significant obstacles and even active resistance. In the Creative Community College, these leaders share their successes, their failures, and the risks they took to strengthen their institutions, to build alliances with school systems, and to create new systems
