This course will focus on building understanding about what it means to be a teacher-leader and the relationship of this role to improved student learning. Participants will learn about the many forms of teacher leadership including mentoring, coaching, performing action research, using data, and observing others in the classroom. Topics related to the knowledge, skills, and dispositions one needs to serve as a teacher-leader, as well as the cultures that can help sustain and support teacher leadership in our schools will be explored. The process of building collaborative relationships with colleagues, administrators, and central office leaders will be examined. (A component for building administrators will be included.) This course is open only to VSI students.
