A Training Program to Facilitate Problem Solving and Decision Making in Schools. Set I Through Set XII (Modules 1-25).
Drummond, William H.; Nuernberger, Anna
Based on the Florida Linkage System Project, this training program introduces school personnel to methods and resources for group problem-solving and decision-making. The program focuses on developing and refining skills for communication, data gathering, problem analysis, decision-making, goal setting, and program development. A primary objective of the training is to enable participants to become more effective group members. A related program objective is to facilitate the development of trust and communication among group members. The program is designed for use in a continuous sequence over five or six days with teams of 4-6 persons made up of the principal, two or three teachers, and other district staff. The workshop assists members in methodically solving work-related problems, instituting a linking network, and helping others with these activities. (Author/JM)
