Insights for new and aspiring school principals

In Navigating the Principalship: Key Insights for New and Aspiring School Leaders (ASCD, 2019), co-authors James P. Spillane and Rebecca Lowenhaupt examine how new principals adapt to the challenging role, set an instructional agenda, and build cooperation and collaboration. Their volume is based on original research conducted with new elementary and middle school principals in Chicago, who lend authentic voices to the discussion of proven strategies and pragmatic ways to manage the most difficult parts of the job, such as answering to the demands of internal and external stakeholders, creating a safe space for teaching and learning, accomplishing seemingly limitless tasks in limited time, and balancing work and home. Lowenhaupt is an associate professor in the BC Lynch School of Education and Human Development. Read more from BC News.
