Arguing that the task of the teacher leader is not to dispense knowledge but rather to provide opportunities for teachers to construct it, this article reports on activities in which teacher leaders engaged during a session on the constructivist approach during the 1996 Teacher Leader Institute. It outlines five principles of learning that provided a framework for the session and discusses how participants constructed an understanding of leadership. The article then lists characteristics of positive demonstration lessons identified by participating teacher leaders. Finally, it discusses constructing a plan of action and presents a 10-point plan of action developed by small groups of teacher leaders. (SR)
