Call for papers
Jewish Educational Leadership invites articles for the Winter 2013 issue focusing on Schools as Learning Communities.
TJ Sergiovanni and others have championed the model of school leadership as a form of pedagogy itself. The Head of School is the chief learner, teachers lead their students in exploration of knowledge and become learners in the process, and students are surrounded by a culture of inquiry. The culture created has the potential to filter even to the ways that the school’s boards and lay committees function. In this issue we will be exploring questions including, but not limited to:
How does a school begin the process of creating a culture of learning?
- How do components such as peer-coaching, internal mentoring, teacher induction and collaboration contribute to teacher growth and student learning? What costs/difficulties can be anticipated in trying to institute these systems into an existing school?
What is the role of action research in creating a culture of inquiry in a school?
How does the image of the Head of School as chief learner impact on his/her stature vis-à-vis students, faculty, parents and boards?
Abstracts and proposal for articles will be accepted until October 25, 2012.
Please send abstracts, final copies, or questions to the Editor, Zvi Grumet email@example.com.
