  3. 3. The Type of Role <ul><li>This type of role may expose “surfacing tensions between the school's mission and its actual practices, [which can] discomfort colleagues and threaten administrators and teachers alike” (Ackerman & Mackenzie, 2006, p. 66). </li></ul><ul><li>Coordinator </li></ul><ul><li>Benefactor </li></ul><ul><li>Intermediary between administration and program </li></ul><ul><li>Conceptualization and enactment </li></ul>

  6. 6. The Goals <ul><li>“ In order to create communities of learners, teachers must model for students the most important enterprise of the schoolhouse - learning. A powerful relationship exists between learning and leading. The most salient learning for most of us comes when we don't know how to do it, when we want to know how to do it, and when our responsibility for doing it will affect the lives of many others. This is where teacher leadership and professional development intersect.” Barth, 2001. </li></ul><ul><li>Improvement in enrollment on AP Literature exams </li></ul><ul><li>Higher percentage of passing (score above a “3”) students on AP Literature exams </li></ul><ul><li>Growth to other AP topics </li></ul>
  7. 7. Personal Growth <ul><li>Teachers need to take ownership of their own careers and pilot their direction. Leadership is not handed out. It is largely up to the teachers themselves to locate and exploit opportunities for the professional growth and development that will increase their qualifications and credibility for leadership.” Kurtz, 2009. </li></ul><ul><li>Improvement in school standing </li></ul><ul><li>Practice my ability within the seven professional competencies </li></ul><ul><li>Pave the way for future leadership opportunities </li></ul>
