Abstract

This chapter explores the concepts of awareness of self and others and their application to equity-oriented educational leadership. Drawing from the literature, the authors define key concepts and how these concepts affect the work of school leaders. The authors then present an analysis of the career development of three principals who each struggle with how they will define themselves in relation to the community in which they work. Collectively these cases illustrate the importance of attending to self-awareness and cultural knowledge in the preparation of equity-oriented educational leaders. All participants’ names have been changed to protect their identity.

Abstract

This introductory chapter provides background information and an organizational structure for the book. The authors begin with a brief history of the research project that undergirds the work presented in each chapter. Drawing from the fields of enology and viticulture, the authors introduce the concepts of terroir, millerandage, and appellations as section headings that help to frame brief descriptions of each chapter. The authors conclude with an invitation for the reader to engage with the authors in a discussion about the contents of the book.

Abstract

The cutting edge contributions in this thoughtful volume underscore what we know and need to know about how to effectively prepare new principals in international contexts. With contributions from Australia, Mexico, First Nations principals in Canada, England, Spain, Kenya, Latin America (Brazil, Chile, and Argentina), and the United States, these intriguing new case studies from the ISPP (International Study of Principal Preparation) utilize a variety of lens – relational and instructional leadership, political acumen, entrepreneurialism, environmental education, and cultural self-awareness among others – to explore how novice principals develop their craft. It should prove essential reading for those who aim to prepare the next generation of 21st century school leaders who are responsive to both local and global contexts. Highly recommended.
