Sometimes teachers want to take charge and lead an initiative and other times they want to play more of a support role. Ideally, teacher leadership structures create opportunities for both. Anderson (2004) describes three approaches to teacher leadership that have implications for high student achievement: the buffered approach, interactive approach, and contested approach. Taking a closer look at these three approaches reveals the shortcomings and benefits of each and how they affect the ultimate goal of improving student learning.

Adrian Bertolini's insight:

Inspiring others is part of what you must do, because doing so keeps people engaged and interested in the work at hand. You can’t fake it. You have to feel it. Recent studies in human interaction and brain science have shown us that emotions are contagious, and this goes both ways; any dissonance you have gets picked up by others no matter how hard you might “try” to be genuine.
