The Principal as Instructional Leader: An Annotated Bibliography
Keywords:Principals, Educational Administration, Leadership, Bibliographies
AbstractThis bibliography brings together a selection of works on the principal as instructional leader. There has been extensive research in this area, but the bibliography does not attempt to be comprehensive in coverage. Instead, it attempts to provide a basic research tool for researchers on the subject. The bibliography is divided into three sections. The first sectrion deals with the Caribbean. Because of the paucity of literature on the region, it was decided to include most to the relevant literature for which annotations could be provided, regardless of date of publications. Although the second section is international in scope, the majority of the entries relate to the United States. This section is very selective and only includes literature from 1990, with emphasis on the more recent literature. It is organized by the following areas in which the principal exhibits his influence as an instructional leader: 1) general leadership, 2) staff development, 3) student achievement and 4) community involvement. The final section identifies some websites that should be useful for Internet research on this topic.
