The career of educational administrator does not lend itself well to allowing new principals to practice their skills. As individuals are involved in principal preparation programs, the internship experience is the platform used by the professors as the main source of practicing necessary leadership skills. Because of the element of responsibility for administrators, most principals are reluctant to relinquish power to interns in fear of their failure. As a result, educational leadership programs struggle to find appropriate methods of instruction to fill the gaps in the practice field. “A practice is an activity that you do repeatedly to achieve a particular experience or outcome (Creighton, 2005, p. 67).” The outcome all programs are hoping to achieve is successful leadership skills, which can be incorporated into a new administrator’s career seamlessly. Altering classroom projects to include additional collaboration and evaluation techniques is a practice designed to improve skills necessary for effective administrators. AVAILABLE AT:
