Across the Great Divide: Teachers and Administrators Interpret Research Findings.
Rosaler, Jean A.; Deal, Terrence E.
In a specially designed forum, 30 teachers and administrators joined a group of researchers to interpret some recent research findings. Discussion groups focused on four issues: teacher and principal morale, specialists and conflict, teacher teams, and "loose coupling" between the district and school. A dynamic exchange of ideas resulted, with both the researchers and practitioners gaining new perspectives. The researchers saw alternative ways to view their data; the practitioners left with a new slant on pressing educational problems. Most importantly, the two groups also saw how they can mutually benefit from each other, and many of their stereotyped images were eroded. (Author)
