Leading & Learning: A Portfolio of Change in Vermont Schools, 1991.
Hewitt, Geof, Comp.; And Others
The Governor's Institutes of Vermont are summer programs for Vermont high school students. The students are chosen for their strong personal motivation and interest in art, science and technology, and international affairs. Coordinated with the Institutes, the Lead Learner program is designed to enhance teacher and school efforts in restructuring. These and other programs help to build a new vision of education: to define the needs of the 21st century learners, to transform schools so they can meet those needs, to promote standards of excellence in learning and leadership, and to create powerful partnerships between schools and communities. This document chronicles the events on Vermont's agenda for change from the personal and professional viewpoints of practitioners. Lead Learners tell what the institute's programs mean to them. Principals tell about their plans to work together on common issues. State leaders tell about the projects they lead and the challenge and promise they see. Five sections provide the following insights: (1) initiatives for change--active projects on Vermont's educational agenda; (2) institute reports--experiences of the 1991 Lead Learners; (3) images--personal reflection of educators; (4) great performances--success stories and innovative classroom ideas; and (5) profiles--reports from schools and communities working together for change.
