A critical, reflective response to the literature in the
field of leadership and management, with a focus on
one topic. (2000 words)
• In this assignment, you will focus on two pieces(below) of academic literature, related to the fields of leadership and/or management in education.
• You will need to reflect on these pieces of literature, and consider some of the following ideas:
• · How do these articles relate to your experience of leadership and/or management? If you have not been in a leadership position, you can still reflect on leadership or management that you have observed in other situations( Malala yousafzai leadership style and how powerful women are in the educational sector)
• · How do they relate to each other? Do they agree or disagree? Does one build on the work of the other?
• · You will also need to reflect on the pieces themselves, as well: if they present empirical research, is this clearly explained? Is the research robust, reliable? Are the findings directly related to the research and do they arise from the research presented? If the piece is another kind of literature, you can still reflect on whether or not it is clear, do the ideas flow logically one from another, do they appear to be soundly based in the rest of the literature in the field?
• Even though this is a reflective piece of work, it is still an academic piece of work – so strive for an academic tone and rely on the literature in the field when needed.
• Your paper should include at least five academic sources – that is, the two pieces you are reflecting on and at least three other academic sources.
