A Proposed Model for Inservice Selection and Evaluation Using Cognitive Flexibility as a Major Criterion: A Preliminary Analysis.
Brown, James C.
This proposed model conceived by the Atlanta Public Schools' Professional Leadership Program is concerned with bringing about change in the area of instruction and curriculum. The development of this leadership pilot program creates a climate for curriculum revision that facilitates individualization and vitalization of instruction as well as adapts the school program to the individual needs of all pupils. To accomplish the general objective, specific steps are utilized. The high priority needs of staff personnel related to individualizing and vitalizing instruction are identified. A critical mass of effective or potentially effective professional personnel who will function as catalytic change agents for creating a climate conducive to change is selected. In the critical mass of leaders, a high degree of proficiency and skill in group interaction techniques is developed. The change agents are charged with the responsibility of effecting constructive change in the direction of individualizing and vitalizing instruction. Consultative assistance is provided. Changes must also be evaluated. Appended are 16 data tables. (11 references) (SI)
