"Instructional leadership is by far the most important skill for leaders today" 
Paraphrased from Kristen Anderson

Along with Teacher Collective Efficacy, Instructional Leadership ranks highest in the most effective leadership ability in education today.

The new state standards and learning objectives demand more rigorous instruction to meet achievement targets than ever before. If students are to reach these goals, educational leaders must have a working knowledge and practical mastery of researched effective areas of instructional leadership:

    • General knowledge and understanding of curriculum and assessment and the connection of both
    • Issues related to effective instruction and instructional strategies
    • Instructional evaluation, both summative and formative
    • Data analysis and discussion that leads to instructional change
    • Ability to give and receive effective feedback that targets improvement and direction for positive change
