The Constructivist Leader, 3rd Edition
A few months ago I wrote that the authors of The Constructivist Leader, first and second editions, were considering a third edition. We now have the go ahead for this “classic text,” in the words of one of the reviewers. When the first edition was published by Teachers College Press in 1995, it became an immediate best-seller. Why? We think because it reframed the rusty notion of leadership, separating it from role, position and formal power, and situating it into the collaborating and reciprocal construction of shared meaning and purpose in community. After centuries of dominance, colonization, and compliance, many found this a breath of fresh air.
We now are interested in updating the examples in the book–of schools, districts, organizations, foundations, national policy. If you would like to recommend the work of outstanding educators, we would be very appreciative.
In the meantime, stay tuned. Next entry: travels to Italy for the release of Etruscan Evenings.
