Partner Schools: Centers for Educational Renewal. The Jossey-Bass Education Series. First-Edition.
Osguthorpe, Russell T.; And Others
This book addresses three questions: Is the partner school concept a passing fad? What do educators need to know in order to initiate a partnership and a partner school? What can we anticipate, with regard to costs and benefits, from partner schools in the future? After an introductory chapter, "Understanding School-University Partnerships" (R. T. Osguthorpe, R. C. Harris, S. Black, B. R. Cutler, and M. F. Harris), the book is divided into two parts "Part One: The Goals of Partner Schools" and "Part Two: Developing and Implementing Partner Schools." Part One contains the following chapters: "Improving Student Learning" (W. H. Kimball, S. M. Swap, P. A. LaRosa, and T. Howick); "Strengthening Teacher Education" (M. L. Barnhart, D. J. Cole, S. T. Hansell, B. K. Mathies, W. E. Smith, and S. Black); "Promoting Professional Development" (R. A. Pines, L. Z. Mitchel, and N. Michelli); and "Supporting Collaborative Inquiry" (F. P. Hunkins, D. L. Wiseman, and R. C. Williams). Part Two contains the following chapters: "Launching and Sustaining a Partner School" (R. C. Harris and M. F. Harris); "Initiating District-Wide Change" (M. M. Beglau and K. F. Granger); "Promoting Statewide Collaboration" B. Little-Gottesman, P. Graham, and C. Nogy); "Building Links with Families and Communities" (H. Lawson, R. Flora, S. Lloyd, K.
