Author(s): Norma Ghamrawi, Noha Al-Hassan
This study investigated the impact of an intervention program on developing teacher leadership skills by developing teachers’ capacities on shifting classrooms from teacher-centered to student-centered learning environments. Findings of this paper are part of a larger study that employed the action research methodology, and was carried out over the course of one academic year in a K-12 private school in Mount Lebanon. The sample involved 15 teachers and data was collected through (1) a classroom observation tool; and (2) a teacher leadership survey. Data collection instruments were administered before and after the intervention program that aimed at leveraging the repertoire of classroom practices into student-centered learning environments. Microsoft Excel was employed to calculate descriptive statisctics. Results showed that the intervention had a slight, yet appreciable impact on the teaching-learning environment; and supported the development of teacher leadership skills.
