Effective Schooling, Educational Change & the Role of the Principal. Leadership Training Program, Proceedings (Honolulu, HI, November 22-24, 1982).
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
These proceedings include the design, agenda flow, program highlights, and materials used in a program for 110 school administrators from three school districts in Oahu (Hawaii). The purposes of the program were to provide participants a broad overview of the current research relating to effective schooling, an opportunity to identify and explore the implications of the research for their work, and experiences to develop alternative plans for using this research in their schools. Presentations were made on (1) the qualities and characteristics of effective schools, (2) the essential ingredients that aid in bringing about change in schools, and (3) the role of the principal as instructional leader. Discussion periods and individual reflective experiences followed each presentation. Responses to an evaluation form and an 18-page bibliography of effective schooling practices conclude the first section of the proceedings. Appendixes contain the instruments used in work sessions. Among these are a schema that plots effective schooling into six cluster areas, a learning log, a values checklist, a self-assessment inventory, a reprint of effective schooling practices in Alaska, a selected bibliography on change/organizational structure, a principal checkup chart, and summaries by the planning team of conference recommendations.
