Leadership Content Knowledge


"The construct of leadership content knowledge opens entirely new realms of thought about leadership -- connecting it directly to the core function of schooling, learning and teaching -- and raising the question whether generic studies of leadership can really get at the heart of what it means to lead schools and school districts. Without knowledge that connects subject matter, learning, and teaching to acts of leadership, leadership floats disconnected from the very processes it is designed to govern. Just as the construct of pedagogical content knowledge has marked out new and very generative research questions and sites for research, so the construct of leadership content knowledge may open up new questions about what it means to provide instructional leadership in schools."
