Description:

`To 'repair' a plank in your educational leadership platform or to build a new platform, Gupton's The Instructional Leadership Toolbox is indeed a useful tool' - Fred Carver, Professor (Retired), University of Georgia, Athens, GA`This relevant book is presented as a true balance of theory and practicality. Gupton does an excellent job of giving the concept as theory and then telling us how to apply that concept on a day-to-day basis' - Tressie Shaw Harper, Superintendent, Moss Point School District, Moss Point, MS`She's nailed it! The Instructional Leadership Toolbox is a brilliant blueprint for successful, values-based school leadership. Practical, insightful, and accurate-this book is a 'must read' for every school administrator at any level' - Lisa Hall, Assistant Principal, Northside Middle School, Greenwood, SCToday's schools require leaders who focus school efforts and resources on what is happening in the classroom: teaching and learning. S Lee Gupton examines the instructional leadership role of the principal, providing school leaders with practical ways to reflect on, determine, and improve their own instructional goals. Using a unique toolbox metaphor, this resource book also offers a variety of helpful "tools"-skills, strategies, and information-drawn from today's best research and theory in school administration.
