How Should Principals Search for Areas of Growth?

Reclaiming_blog_5.4Principals are constantly confronted with decisions to make. In Reclaiming the Principalship, author Tom Marshall explores what these decisions are, their importance and their impact. Perhaps one of the most important tasks a principal must face is the search for areas of growth in the school community. In this video, Tom shares sample conversations and the questions he asks as he walks through his school in search of improvement:

  • Who owns the talk in the classroom?
  • What's the nature/depth of the talk?
  • How much is the teacher letting the students control what's going on in the classroom?
  • Where is this teacher in their learning about X?
  • What can I offer as a principal?
