Create a newsletter using your textbook readings this week as a guide to complete this assignment. Make
certain to include each question/section in your newsletter. This is a newsletter/not an essay.
What are the roles of educational leaders in a learning community?
What steps must a principal take to develop a shared mission and vision?
What strategies can educational leaders use to communicate and sustain the vision?
What about emotional intelligence and leadership?
How do principals build the trust that contributes to improved student achievement?
What communication skills do leaders need to successfully lead learning communities?
What do leaders need to know about the change process?
How do you begin the process of building a learning community?
The newsletter should describe the gap between the current reality of your setting AND the ideal situation,
citing specific data or anecdotes as evidence for each category listed in the text. This is a detailed
comparison/contrast of your current school setting and an ideal school setting. You will write this assignment
from the perspective of a teacher at a middle school. Additionally, I will upload a PDF of the assigned reading,
Ch. 2 of Schools as Professional Learning Communities.
