The Development of Educational Teams. Strategies of Organizational Change Program.
Schwartz, Mitchell; And Others
This monograph is designed as an introductory guide to developing effective educational teams in school districts. Aimed at both preservice and inservice educators, it shows how teams can be used to support collaboration and mutual problem-solving at all levels of the school district and describes various issues related to the development of educational teams. The authors discuss various qualities and processes that nurture functional and adaptive educational teams and present methods for increasing their effectiveness. They also offer practical strategies for helping school personnel examine their team communication patterns, goal clarification procedures, conflict processes, problem-solving methods, and decision-making procedures. In addition, they also provide an introduction to consultative strategies for building and maintaining self-renewing educational teams. An annotated bibliography of relevant readings for educators is included at the end of each chapter. (JG)
