Unit I invite you to explore the concept of teachers as leaders and to consider the cultural shift these roles will create in our educational institutions. Using the information from this unit, in addition to a minimum of two resources from an Online Library, answer the following questions in a two-part essay:

·         Part 1: Harnessing the talents of educators creates the opportunity for systemic growth, but it may also create the opportunity for organizational unrest. 

o   What might be some of the unintended consequences of this organizational shift?

o   What is the role of the trainer in this situation?

·         Part 2: In Chapter 2, Brockett emphasizes the importance of knowing yourself as a learner in order to better serve other adult learners. 

o   How can understanding your own learning style help you better meet the needs of the adult learners you serve?

o   How is learning essential to leadership? Use the seven essential qualities of an ideal teacher from Chapter 2 to guide the structure of your response.
