Abstract

According to ISLLC Standard 2, effective instructional leaders maximize time spent on quality curriculum and instruction. In this chapter, aspiring leaders will consider the various relationships among time, curriculum, and quality instruction. It will begin by exploring the nature of time and its relationship to quality curriculum and instruction. Next, the chapter discusses how to rethink time in school and provides a framework for using time effectively during and beyond the school day. In other words, effective principals have effective time management skills; they can prioritize among seemingly disparate activities that occur throughout a day or school year. By providing these understandings and relevant learning activities for application, we develop leaders who take strategic actions to maximize time spent on quality curriculum and instruction. Before you read what research says about relationships among time, curriculum, and instruction, take a few minutes to reflect on your experiences with the use of time for curriculum and instruction in schools.
