Since the publication of the first edition in 1995, The Constructivist Leader has provided educational leaders at all levels with a conceptual framework for leadership defined as reciprocal, purposeful learning in community. Today, learning communities based on constructivist principles are a major part of the school improvement landscape.The Second Edition of this best-selling book enables readers to carry this constructivist vision and purpose forward, while effectively implementing standards-based reform, authentic assessment, and constructivist-based accountability.
The new Second Edition features:
" The Constructivist Leader has taken up where John Dewey left off."
—Ann Lieberman, Senior Scholar, Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and Visiting Professor, Stanford University
"Linda Lambert and associates take us back to our classroom roots, to what we know best about learning and leading. How exciting it is for me to take those behaviors one step farther and create spaces for all of us in the organization to construct meaning, not only for ourselves but for the community that we are part of."
—Mary Ann Kahl, Superintendent, Alden-Hebron District 19, Hebron, Illinois
“Lambert and her colleagues continue to break new ground. This second
edition deepens the argument for re-framing leadership and provides lots of new examples. If you are looking for a fresh approach, this thoughtful and provocative book is a must. A great book for your leadership team to read.”
— Thomas J. Sergiovanni, Lillian Radford Professor Of Education, Trinity University
