"A book that every practitioner should own. The author has managed to describe the complex process of curriculum development in plain English."
—John Lundt, Professor of Educational Leadership
University of Montana

Develop a curriculum that can transform an ordinary school into a school of excellence!

Curriculum development, an essential part of educational leadership, helps schools establish purpose, define activities, and guide decision making. This thought-provoking how-to resource helps leaders make sound choices and develop constructive policies as they guide a school team through this critical school improvement effort.

Written by an expert in the field, this handbook introduces educational leaders to dynamic curriculum leadership and a curriculum development process that leads to highly successful school programs. The author demonstrates how administrators can adapt curriculum to meet their school's changing needs, incorporate emerging technologies, and reflect new and creative ways of thinking about education. The book walks educational leaders through the process, showing them how to:

  • Move beyond maintenance and management to address short- and long-term school reform
  • Create a school curriculum team
  • Establish a regular curriculum cycle of analysis, design, implementation, and evaluation
  • Develop a path for curriculum improvement

Filled with case studies, sample challenges and solutions, planning sheets, and more, Leading Curriculum Development is a much-needed guide for designing academic programs that lead to excellence in student achievement.
