LUE 610 Teacher Leadership: Theory and Practice

Teacher leaders fulfill many roles—resource provider, curriculum specialist, instructional coach, mentor, and more. Working alongside the school principal and other administrators, teacher leaders often facilitate and provide support for the implementation of evidence-based practices and instructional improvements designed to yield better student learning outcomes. Students will examine ways to develop a culture of collective responsibility in the schools and expand their spheres of influence beyond the walls of the classroom. Topics include building a data-rich ecosystem for monitoring teaching and learning, supporting professional learning for continuous improvement, fostering a collaborative culture and healthy school climate, partnering with families, and advocating for students and the profession.
