Schwartz, Henrietta S., Ed.; And Others
This book offers a collection of papers from a conference focused on various aspects of school/college collaboration, edited so as to form a coherent presentation. The papers are grouped into five chapters, each with its own theme. Chapter 1, on the nature of collaboration, aims to promote inquiry into research, theory, and application concerning the nature of collaboration and the necessary conditions for successful partnerships. This chapter also contains a speech by former Education Secretary Terrel H. Bell and a summary of a symposium on cooperative learning. Chapter 2, on implementation strategies, contains discussions on general lessons to be drawn from successful programs and those programs' characteristics, and on the re-emerging importance given to teacher preparation. Chapter 3, on role relationships/leadership, considers the coming educational challenges presented by demographic trends; the changing roles and responsibilities of university, school, and union personnel working in collaboration; and the nature of leadership. Chapter 4, on context variables, focuses on the factors influencing the outcome of a collaborative project. Finally, chapter 5, on collaborative models, presents reports on different in-place programs. A featured symposium assessing current issues in educational reform and the requirements of effective collaboration conclude the document. (JD)
