Abstract

Heads of science departments in International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme schools in Ankara were interviewed in order to analyse their instructional leadership role with regard to developing and implementing the curriculum, supervision of the curriculum; and to analyse obstacles during curriculum implementation. The participants of this study are nine heads of science departments who work at International Baccalaureate schools in Ankara. An interview guide prepared by the researcher was utilized to analyse the instructional leadership role of the heads of science departments. The data gathered by voice recording and note taking was transcribed and analysed by content analysis method. The study found that heads of science departments in IB DP schools understood their instructional leadership role and seemed to perform it well.
