Call for Book Chapters on Teacher Leadership
I am currently seeking contributing authors for a book with IGI Global, for release in 2021, titled Empowering Formal and Informal Leadership While Maintaining Teacher Identity. This publication will add to the body of scholarship on teacher leadership and further help to define the opportunities and challenges for school districts to consider to promote teacher leadership in their settings. The edited book will provide a wide and broad perspective of the topic which can be used in university settings and practitioner settings related to teacher education and teacher development.
Education researchers and practitioners are invited to submit a 1,000 to 2,000 word chapter proposal by July 9, 2020.
Recommended topics include, but are not limited to the following:
- Teacher leadership opportunities and/or challenges
- Formal and/or informal teacher leadership roles
- Teacher leadership to promote teacher retention
- Teacher development
- Teachers as influencers
- The educator continuum and teacher leadership
- Teacher leadership within the classroom
- Teacher leadership within a school
- Teacher leadership within a community
- Teacher leadership to advance the profession
- Teacher leadership to influence policy
- Mentoring or instructional coaching
- Teacher leaders as professional developers
