The purpose of this paper is to present an organizational engagement model that highlights the design process of the homeroom teacher (HRT) role in Israeli high schools.
The model was constructed as a grounded theory during a qualitative research work conducted during 2007-2011.
The model is based on Maslow's and Schein's frameworks of personal needs and organizational culture, respectively, as well as on the principal's role.
The authors propose that the model contributes to the literature on organizational behavior and leadership in general and to the study of educational organizations in particular, in three ways: first, it stresses the principal's role in the design process of leadership roles; second, it deepens the understanding of the concept of engagement by examining it through a qualitative lens; and third, it suggests a hierarchical organizational engagement ladder for the HRT role.
