ABSTRACT
Literature on educational leadership from the past 40 years clearly reveals an emphasis on the principal as instructional leader. Subsequently, instructional leadership has been operationalized through professional leadership standards. In an era characterized by increasing accountability, federal legislation and resultant mandates have accentuated instructional leadership roles for principals, which focused increased scrutiny on literacy. However, despite a decade of intense inquiry into literacy practices, scant research has been conducted identifying effective literacy leadership knowledge and skill as a subset of instructional leadership. Traversing the fields of literacy research and educational leadership, this study establishes a framework for defining literacy leadership.
