Change in Schools: Facilitating the Process. SUNY Series in Educational Leadership.
Hall, Gene E.; Hord, Shirley M.
In 11 chapters, this book has been organized around the Concerns Based Adoption Model (CBAM), a sophisticated way to understand the change process and how participants experience it. This model provides ways for practitioners and policymakers to label change process phenomena, to take positive action in facilitating change, and to predict effects. Chapters 1 and 2 provide an overview of CBAM and reviews literature on leadership for change. Chapters 3 and 4 concentrate on teacher perceptions of change and levels of innovation. Chapters 5, 6, and 7 discuss innovation configurations, incident interventions, and an intervention taxonomy. Chapters 8 and 9 classify and review change facilitators. Finally, chapters 10 and 11 evaluate CBAM via a case study and consider additional theory, practice, and research. (JAM)
