The Principal: Creative Leadership for Excellence in Schools, Updated Edition Hardcover - 2016 - 8th Edition

by Gerald Ubben; Larry Hughes; Cynthia Norris

From the rear cover

With its focus on the critical elements of leadership essential for today's school principals, this widely popular resource combines a strong research base with a practical, hands-on approach to help aspiring, new, and experienced educators become effective school administrators. Organized into four sections, The Principal presents a vision for leadership and learning and shows how to create a positive school culture, manage the organization, and interact with the external environment.

The authors have made significant enhancements to the UPDATED Eighth edition to keep pace with the changing times. The new edition:

  • Reflects the evolution in the roles of educational leaders.
  • Explores the increased tasks that are requiring principals to expand their toolboxes of skills in such areas as instructional leadership, data analysis, technology, utilization, staff evaluation, and community relations.
  • Looks at the mounting demands to rewrite their job descriptions every year.
  • Reflects the December 2015 Professional Standards for Educational Leaders, by linking content to these new standards through margin references.
