An analysis of the various leadership and organizational theories with a major focus on situational decision-making and its effects. The course explores and tests (through required field-based clinical activities) leadership skills and strategies necessary for effective school leadership. The student engages in an in-depth review of the literature relevant to effective organizational change and analysis as a foundation for the development of change strategies. Field-based clinical experiences will require students to identify issues affecting the school; leadership and organizational theory will frame discussion of the issues. In addition to observation in a variety of school settings, clinical experiences may include participation in board meetings and school advisory boards.
