Description:
Cobb outlines three facets of a principal as a leader, and explains how shared leadership in a school, with shared responsibility for student learning, can help it to improve. She says that the characteristics of a strong principal as leader include a moral purpose, knowledge about the process of change, and the ability to work on relations with teachers. She goes on to describe what a literacy team in a school might look like, including the principal, reading coach, and teachers representing different levels of expertise. These people must then map out a course of action to address literacy in the school, including creating a firm definition for literacy learning and instruction.
