Written by three noted mathematics educators, this volume presents a process-based approach to building a high-quality mathematics program based on five NCTM principles and four NCSM leadership principles.
Chapter 10: Putting it All Together
Putting it All Together
We noted at the start of this book that achieving equity by closing the achievement gap is the ultimate goal in mathematics education. In the preceding chapters we outlined a leadership model to accomplish this goal. The developmental stages of this model are sequential, though not rigidly so, and highly interrelated. To be successful, mathematics leaders, whether responsible for one school or several, will need to undertake some version of the leadership process that we have described.
The leadership process is dynamic, continuous, and cyclical. Mathematics leaders must be prepared for a changing environment, including student population shifts, staff changes, advances in pedagogy and assessment, new research findings, and so on. Their role will be to address such changes ...
