Florida Linkage System Inservice Process Workshop: Building a Bridge.
Boutwell, Richard C.
This model for an inservice workshop is based on an ongoing relationship between a college or university (acting as consultant) and an instructional staff. The workshop is built around an actual problem situation facing the staff, in this case, the task of providing remediation in conjunction with the Florida State Assessment Test. The design of the workshop is based on the assumption that the answers to a school's problems reside in the staff themselves and the task of the workshop designer is to foster the emergence of these answers. The program is composed of four separate workshops focusing on problem identification, solution design, solution development, and evaluation. Workshop teams are made up of three to seven teachers. There is an emphasis on communications, personal ownership of solutions, team building, role modeling, and organizational norm setting. Teachers assume more leadership as the workshops progress. The workshops thus are aimed at both solving a particular instructional problem and fostering staff development. (Author/JM)
