The Boston Teacher Leadership Certificate Program: Building Resources for Reform
This paper was presented at the 2012 Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association. Using the Teacher Leader Model Standards as a guiding framework, the paper examines the alignment between the skills taught in the Boston Teacher Leadership Resource Center courses, the skills required for our four target teacher leadership roles, and the skills teacher leaders perceived as important for efficacy in their roles. The paper makes recommendations for Boston's program, identifies implications for the TLM Standards, and proposes a new model framework for teacher leadership development.
