About this book

This book focuses on the impact of teachers’ leadership identity on their pedagogical and class management choices and proposes a new pedagogical framework, leaderful classroom practices which emerged through collective, concurrent, collaborative, and compassionate interactions between the teacher and students. The interdisciplinary aspect of the book appeals to a wide range of readers from different disciplines and gives readers the opportunity to take a moment and reflect on their leadership identity, recognize the limitations of their practices, and adopt a leaderful pedagogy in their respective disciplines. Establishing an open, democratic, and participatory learning environment for all learners is a major leadership responsibility of teachers, and this book demonstrates how to accomplish this mission both in theory and practice.
