  • One framework for SCL. IL + academic goal oriented behaviour – not just formulating goals, but resourcing for goals; ensuring environment is right for the goals you are setting e.g., if in chaos – first priority will be getting order.A school effectiveness model – different from a SI model – My research shoed in s secondary context that when schools were already performing well Ps used more indirect leadership (OE/PS/SR) plus G for most effect but when schools needed a lot of improvement it was direct IL where they had their effects. The SLT role was complementary to that of the P.Effects of PLD were strong in the meta-analysis but this is not necessarily the case. Again in secondary based research – two-thirds of schools PD found to be ineffective.
  • A key point for today – what is the problem you are trying to solve – what are your valued academic outcomes. Not say only outcomes to be valued are academic – but our thrust here today is to focus on the academic. We know that this is a good predictor of academic success – your focus and tracking of test results. Particularly important for principals to have that foucs – it differentiates between effective and ineffective schools in both secondary and primary contexts.
  • Do you know – and how do you know? Individually respond in your book first and then share as a school – do you all say the same thing – this will be the test of whether you have really identified this or not.Feedback on level of agreement – high, medium, low.Get some feedack on level of agreement??
