Summary

Five selections summarize training methods for the principalship from the perspective that cognizance of the complexities of being a principal arises from practice, thus experiential learning should be incorporated into preservice and inservice training programs. The first selection, "Making Sense of Principals' Work," by Kent Petersen, is a straightfoward analysis describing the complexities of a typical elementary school principal's work day. Petersen's observations are borne out by John Daresh's research paper, "The Beginning Principalship: Preservice and Inservice Implications," and William Johnson's and Karolyn Snyder's piece, "Instructional Leadership Training Needs for School Principals." They identify principal learning needs for more comprehensive and systematic school leadership preparation. Vivian Clark's "The Effectiveness of Case Studies in Training Principals, Using the Deliberative Orientation" shows a "hand-on" case study simulation approach to training principals that conveys the job's sophistication. Bruce Barnett offers another training model in "Peer-Assisted Leadership: Using Research To Improve Practice." Providing principals the opportunity to analyze their own behaviors in cooperation with a partner confronting the same kinds of challenges increases the trainee's reflective processes. (JAM)
