The “everyday leadership” of “tempered radicals”


Jim Knight is well-known to many of my readers. For those who don’t know him, he is well-regarded for his expertise in teaching and instructional coaching and for his books and “Radical Learner” blog.

So I was particularly honored when Jim invited me to prepare a guest post for his blog, which he has just published. It is titled “The ‘everyday leadership’ of ‘tempered radicals,’” and it begins:

“Radical learners” may sometimes feel like outsiders even when they hold important positions within their schools. Debra Meyerson uses the term “tempered radicals” to describe such individuals, and it is also the name of a book she wrote based on studies she has done on TRs, as she calls them.

Drawing on Meyerson’s Tempered Radicals and a 2005 interview I did with her for the JSD, I offer a set of attributes about “everyday leadership” so that “radical learners” can be even more effective in using their unique talents and perspectives to serve students and their school communities.

I encourage you to continue reading this essay on Jim’s blog
