Overview

This third edition of a bestseller draws on the authors' two decades of experience in studying and observing the work of teacher leaders. Marilyn Katzenmeyer and Gayle Moller expand on the definition of leadership and its importance in improving outcomes in schools, and cover the careerlong development of teacher leaders from preservice preparation programs through ongoing support for veteran teacher leaders.

This exceptional, teacher-focused resource discusses three factors critical to stepping into a leadership role: the sustaining of teacher leadership relationships between adults in the school, organizational structures, and the actions of the principal. The authors discuss the challenges that many teacher leaders face, including

Deciding to accept a leadership role

Building principal-teacher leader relationships

Working with peers

Facilitating professional learning for themselves and others

With the latest research from teacher leadership literature and new teacher inventories and surveys, this updated edition of Awakening the Sleeping Giant demonstrates the benefits of investing in teachers and their learning to sustain meaningful change in today's schools.

Editorial Reviews

Roland S. Barth
"The ultimate for those who promote teacher leadership and those who would be teacher leaders. "
Bill Ferriter
"This seminal text left me nothing short of energized when I first picked it up almost ten years ago.Drawing from their continued experience developing and defining teacher leadership, Katzenmeyer and Moller bring additional transparency to a widely recognized concept that remains poorly understood. Filled with new surveys, tools, and suggestions for today’s teacher leader, the newest edition is simply a must-read for anyonedriving meaningful change in the classrooms of our country. "
Linda Lambert
"Katzenmeyer and Moller usher in a new age of teacher leadership, an age of mutuality in learning and leading, broad-based participation, and shared responsibility. Their work is based on the powerful assumption that all of us—especially teachers—have the right, capacity, and responsibility to lead. "
