Table of Contents
This ASCD Study Guide is designed to enhance your understanding of The Art of School Leadership, an ASCD book written by Thomas R. Hoerr and published in December 2005. It will help you make connections between the text and your personal and professional experiences. The author, a veteran school leader, offers invaluable advice on running a school, including how to promote collegiality, set goals, evaluate teachers, work with parents, manage meetings, support diversity, and make a difference in children's lives.
You can use the study guide after you have read the entire book or as you finish each chapter. The questions provided are not meant to cover all aspects of the book; rather, they address selected ideas that might warrant further reflection. Most of the questions are ones you can think about on your own, but you might consider pairing with a colleague or forming a group of people who have read (or are reading) The Art of School Leadership.
If you have any questions or comments about this study guide or about the book, you may contact the author at firstname.lastname@example.org.
