Establish collaborative learning communities that foster high academic standards!
Today's school leaders face a difficult reality: the pressure to meet national standards often eclipses the pursuit of additional academic goals. This groundbreaking text seeks to remedy this conflict by enabling practicing and prospective school leaders to build collaborative, constructive environments that not only help schools achieve national standards, but also help the school community realize high academic standards.
Sullivan and Glanz put forth a conceptual framework centered on modeling reflective practice. This framework and the authors' suggested strategies and techniques provide school leaders with:
- Approaches that can be employed at all educational levels
- Materials that educate leaders about themselves
- Tactics for building a reflective learning community
- Suggestions for promoting individual and group development
Discover the techniques that foster collaborative learning communities in which all members of the school community advance high academic standards.
