Curriculum Leadership by Middle Leaders focusses on major issues relating to the continuing national and international discourse on curriculum leadership, and highlights the vital role of middle leaders in schools. School leadership has focused primarily on first-order change involving school leaders or principals. This book seeks to put the spotlight on second-order change that involves curriculum leadership and professional development support on the part of middle leaders for more sustainable and long-term change in teaching and learning that will influence what happens in classrooms. With timely and thought-provoking contribution from authors who pursue a range of scholarly interests in multiple educational settings, the book is guided by several underlying questions: How might we re-envision curriculum leadership so that it addresses both local and global concerns and aspirations? How might we better grasp how middle leaders understand and respond to the pressures of educational reform initiatives? How might middle leaders transform pressures into possibilities? This book will appeal to current teachers, those currently undertaking teacher training and students or academics carrying out research in the field of educational leadership.

This book is unique given its scholarly angle in unmasking irresponsible leadership (IL) by focusing on its meaning. For the first time the concept of irresponsible leadership (IL) is explored in depth, the plethora of terms used in various disciplines is synthesised, and the ped-andragogy of teaching IL as a threshold concept of responsible leadership (RL) is discussed. The methodological approach adopted is creative and sound. Following the call for business schools to do more in developing responsible leadership curriculum, the book is the first of its kind devoted to advocating a radical change in the management curriculum. It draws attention to the essence of developing a shared in-depth understanding of IL by addressing the misconceptions of theories and issues that have contributed to the epidemic corporate scandals worldwide. The authors provide a suite of reflective/reflexive tools for RL learning and development, including the first IL definitional framework useful for understanding IL perspectives. In addition the book is the first to introduce the ILRL board game, which increases the learner’s flow state. Thus, the book highlights how various tools can be useful for engagement, and understanding curricula and ped-andragogical issues vis-à-vis corporate leadership practices and sustainability in turbulent times. Our targeted audience: Academic researchers, final year undergraduates, and postgraduate (including Executive MBA) students and Higher Education Curricula developers/designers. The book provides many benefits, some of which include: Pertinent answers to important questions about responsible leadership and curriculum development; sophistication of qualitative research in management studies; in-depth understanding of irresponsible leadership from a cross-disciplinary perspective; support for leadership employability endeavours and equipping students with in-depth understanding of RL; assisting with developing reflective and reflexive practice; and in terms of ped-andragogy, encouraging innovation and creativity in teaching IL as a threshold concept of RL to reduce unnecessary management curricula bias.

'The book is a good introduction to anyone taking on middle leadership in the primary sector, and will be useful to heads and deputies who are considering how to organise their schools in the face continuing change and increasing accountability' - Times Educational Supplement In recent years, there has been an acknowledgement of the need for teachers to develop management and leadership skills in addition to specialized subject knowledge, to achieve a state where they possess transferable skills that can be employed in co-ordinating any area of the primary curriculum.

Looking for advice and guidance on how to implement differentiated instruction throughout your school? Learn from the experts. Administrators and teachers alike will find viable ideas and answers to questions as leaders at two schools share milestones and vignettes from their real-life experiences in converting entire faculties to this dynamic approach to teaching and learning. The authors balance broadly applicable guidance with specific illustrations of how two schools—a middle-income elementary school and a mixed-income high school—experienced the change process in dramatically different ways. In both instances, the new approach to teaching and learning had sweeping, positive results for staff and students. Carol Ann Tomlinson, Kay Brimijoin, and Lane Narvaez have combined their expertise with differentiation in schools—including professional development, research, leadership, coaching, and teaching—to highlight factors that contributed to the continuing success of school reinvention efforts such as *Approaching change with the particular school culture in mind. *Leading a staff toward change with appropriate pushes, pauses, and acknowledgments. *Fostering continued growth in understanding and skill with differentiation in the classroom. *Encouraging teachers to reinforce one another's strengths. *Monitoring progress toward expanded flexibility in instructional approaches. *Nurturing teacher leaders who can sustain the effort beyond one principal's tenure. *Providing strong support and role models for deep and broad changes in the school's teaching practices and learning potential. Every educator seeking to move beyond isolated efforts to differentiate instruction will find practical support and inspiration in this book. At the same time, you'll gain understanding about the key characteristics needed for deep, lasting instructional change that taps into the learning potential of all students in your classrooms and schools.
