Proactively Mitigating School Leaders’ Emotionally Draining Situations
Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy
This case study focuses on emotionally draining situations for school leaders in the context of work intensification. Specifically, this study draws upon real-life reports from Canadian studies to present a fictitious scenario. This case depicts a high school principal who must simultaneously deal with student discipline, interact with parents, conduct classroom walk-throughs, complete tasks associated with being an instructional leader, and work with teachers—to name a few. Readers are encouraged to connect research to practice through several teaching activities that include: a jigsaw discussion approach, a think-pair-share approach, a forum theatre approach, and a pro and con grid approach.
