Case studies in constructivist leadership and teaching
These twenty-seven real-life case studies offer the tools and techniques to help educators improve their personal and professional practices as teachers, supervisors, and administrators in our ever-increasingly complex and changing schools and school districts. Case Studies in Constructivist Leadership and Teaching presents strategies developed over the years that have considerably improved the achievement and satisfaction of students. The setting of the cases range from rural to inner city to suburban. The constructivist processes used are described carefully, and the strategies are laid out clearly so that practitioners can adopt them gradually-and safely. Within the fifth case study is a checklist that presents a detailed model to guide practice. Topics covered include managing a basketball team and cheerleading squad, teaching mechanical drawing in an inner-city school (but lacking experience with the subject), and four invited cases that present a typical day in the life of a constructivist principal, a department chair, a teacher in a charter school, and a middle school teacher who became constructivist.
