Instructional Management Academy.
Barnett, Bruce; Lee, Ginny
This paper briefly describes the rationale, aims, and proposed activities of an instructional management academy conducted by the Instructional Management Program at Far West Laboratory. The first academy, conducted during the 1983-1984 school year, allowed participating principals to analyze their management behavior, receive support and insight from working with colleagues, and learn what other principals were doing in their schools. A schedule of activities proposed for each of six future academy meetings are presented. These activities include "shadowing" others' actions, reflective interviews with partners, group discussion, identification of themes, preliminary models, and a final model formulated by consensus, showing connections between the school context, management behaviors, and student outcomes. Information is also provided on time commitment expectations and follow-up efforts. A diagram of school organiztion and management interaction is included. (TE)
