by Shelton, Michael Patrick, Ed.D., Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 2014, 142; 3628634
Abstract (Summary)

Teacher leadership in schools has evolved many times as schools have looked to utilize teacher leaders in various ways to help support school organization, school reform, and ultimately impact student achievement. The purpose of this study is to develop, and evaluate the impact of a curriculum for leadership development rooted in the Teacher Leader Model Standards. The Teacher Leader Model Standards were published in 2011 by the Teacher Leadership Model Consortium and using those standards as a foundation for research and development, a course was created that provided participants with readings and activities designed to have a positive impact on their understanding of teacher leadership from the classroom perspective.

This study utilized a mixed methods design as participants completed both pre- and post-surveys based on the Teacher Leader Model Standards, as well as participated in focus groups. The data collected in surveys, gleaned from the focus groups, as well as my own field notes were utilized to look at the overall impact of the curriculum in improving teacher efficacy.

The study results indicate that there was a significant impact in teacher efficacy in six of the seven domains assessed.
