Overview

What are the direct and indirect influences of principals on student achievement? How dsuccessful principals motivate others? What kinds of relationships dthey have with parents, students, and staff?

Principals and Student Achievement identifies 26 essential traits and behaviors of effective principals tshow how they achieve success as instructional leaders. Based on a review of 81 key research articles from the last 20 years, this concise book examines how certain practices can affect student achievement, including:

  • Communication and interaction
  • Classroom observation and feedback tteachers
  • Recognition of student and staff achievement
  • Support of professional development of staff
  • Role modeling

The book alsreviews differences in instructional leadership between elementary and secondary principals, male and female principals, principals in high and lowsocioeconomicstatus schools, and more.

We all know that principals are important tstudent success, but few people have pinpointed exactly how they make a positive difference. At a time when principals are being asked tdmore for school reform and accountability, Principals and Student Achievement provides a valuable resource for identifying what it takes tbe an effective principal and, in turn, an effective school.
