The Use of In-Baskets and Small Group Processes for Instruction on Characteristics of Effective Administration.
Keaster, Richard D.
This paper discusses the use of in-basket items, typical of what school administrators would face on the job, and small-group activities to encourage the novice (graduate students in school administration) to exhibit behaviors that result from reflective thought. The process involves classroom exercises that simulate situations typical of school administration. Through instructor feedback and group discussion, students are encouraged to incorporate behaviors characteristic of effective administrators. Sample in-basket items are included. (LMI)
