For an Introductory course in school leadership; a capstone course in leadership preparation programs, a general leadership course, and for principalship courses when used with the companion text, The Four Dimensions of Principal Leadership A Framework for Leading 21st Century Schools

Prospective school leaders get a sound understanding of the most current ISLLC Standards as well as the skills and attributes they need to put them into practice.

Through a compilation of scenarios that incorporate the leadership behaviors informed by the ISLLC Standards, this problem-based text brings prospective school leaders up to date on the Standards, helps them understand the Standards, and helps them develop the skills and attributes they need to use the practices effectively. It presents the theories and processes today’s school leaders use to meet challenging situations and then connects the theories to practice in a manner that helps readers understand how they can be used to resolve problems they will confront as school leaders themselves. Unlike case study texts, Practicing the Art of Leadership connects the standards, theories, and contemporary literature to the scenarios, while recognizing that definitive action is extremely critical to the success of school leaders as they face complex challenges.
