For current and future school leaders, building administrators, and action research team members

Current and future school leaders learn to build the research skills they need to improve schools by increasing student achievement.

This authoritative new resource is designed to help current and future school leaders gain knowledge and a better understanding of research methods—and in turn become more effective leaders as part of the research process itself. Based on the belief that an effective school leader is one who constantly demonstrates to staff the importance of research to the school community, the authors focus on providing school leaders with:

·         technical background and skills for reading and critiquing current educational research

·         methods for applying current research and research methods for collecting and analyzing data in their buildings

·         a framework for conducting their own building-level action research for ongoing building improvement
