This post is part of the #EdublogsClub – a group of educators and edtech enthusiasts that blog around a common theme each week. Simply write a post and share it to join in, or sign up to receive email reminders of each new prompt. 

With the presidential inauguration taking place here in the US in a few short days, ‘leadership’ has been heavy on my mind.

This may be as good of a time as any for us to share and discuss different facets of ‘leadership’ on our blogs. Your post doesn’t have to be education related, but keep in mind your intended audience as you build your blog’s following.

A graphic with words "Leadership"

Prompt: Write a post that discusses leadership, peer coaching, and/or effecting change. 

Here are some sentence starters that may help you as a work on the ideas for your post:

  • The best school leader I have ever worked for/with…
  • Teaching leadership skills to students…
  • The qualities of a true leader include…
  • Leaders don’t…
  • Leaders never…
  • Leaders always…
  • I wish my school administrator/boss…
  • As a leader, I wish to improve on…
  • A leader I admire…
  • Peer coaching…
  • Effecting change…

By all means, you don’t need to stick to the above.

  1. I hate being late to this but it can’t be helped sometimes. I personally found this prompt to be rather challenging, but in the end I came up with a post that really caused me to reflect deeply about leadership and the types of leaders who have shaped me. It was a moving experience. Thank you Edublogs! @mrsruiz2301

  3. Not the right site address – will repost

  4. Hi everyone ! I’d like to share with you my third post: https://goo.gl/wabvC1
    I have a small confession to make, this challenge is way more interesting that I thought it would be at the begging. The first post had some response, the second a much deeper one, and I truly wish this third one will be of your interest.

  5. I love sentence starters. I answered each one, because trying to organize my thoughts around this vast subject was turning out to be just too difficult and time consuming (and I’m trying to catch up with these posts!). Here’s my post:

    • I liked your comments especially about “rule follower.” I know lots of teachers who want clear instructions and will obey and follow. There is lots of ambiguity everywhere. Sometimes leaders live with ambiguity to compel followers to step up and find clarity. That’s called leadership training, in my opinion. Keep writing because it is very interesting.

    • Thanks for sharing! I appreciate your breakdown of leadership qualities and examples.

  6. From light to deep! Love it. Looking forward to thinking on this one!

  7. I blogged last night during the hearing for Secretary of Ed — seemed very timely! Here is my response to prompt #3:

    • I really enjoyed your post Susan. I agree and have felt the same way towards administrators who have deep experience in teaching. Yet, I have met effective leaders with just less experience who have made a difference in me and in others.

      Looking forward to reading more of your posts.
