Week 4 Discussion 2 – Franklin D. Roosevelt Junior High School
The Vignette at the beginning of Chapter 7 gives some insights into Robert’s focus on collaborative leadership in a learning community at Franklin D. Roosevelt Junior High School. After reading this vignette, respond to the following questions:
- What are some indicators that lead one to believe that this principal welcomes the ideas of his staff and values what they bring to the table?
- Imagine if your first position as a principal were in a school where the former principal had not encouraged shared leadership, and you wanted to see that transformed. How would you set about changing the school climate to get others on board? What kinds of obstacles might you need to overcome?
Your initial responses are due by 11:55 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday and should be between 200-250 words. The initial posting should be a statement of your point of view on the question, supported by the required readings.
(Please note that while I did not attach the Vignette at the beginning of Chapter 7, I did however post sample DQ’s of two other students who referenced the Vignette at the beginning of Chapter 7. Please use their responses in lieu of information contained in the Vignette at the beginning of Chapter 7 to help answer all portions of the DQ. Please do not copy their post word for word. I need original answer for DQ. Student 1 and Student 2 DQ ‘s are only attached so you can infer what information should be derived from the Vignette at the beginning of Chapter 7.)
****I hope the above information in parenthesis helps. If you are selected for the assignment and still have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. ****************
