CaMaPe: An Organizational and Educational Systems Approach to Secondary School Development.
Petri, Mart; Burkhardt, Gina
This book is designed for use as a theoretical and practical tool for planning and implementing secondary school change. Chapter 1 presents the history of the development of the CaMaPe models and a perspective on the universality of educational and organizational structures and describes the kinds of schools appropriate to the models. The basic elements of the CaMaPe system are illustrated through a kite configuration. Chapter 2 provides the background and theory for the models and school-development process, viewing the school as both an educational and organizational system. The third chapter describes in detail five educational models and their components and presents examples of schools that fit each model. Five organizational models and their components are described in chapter 4, which stresses the relationship between a school's organizational and educational structures. Chapter 5 integrates the five educational and five organizational models to form five congruent prototypical school models. The sixth chapter shows how to use the CaMaPe models to enhance school change, offering an example of how the staff of one school implemented a feasible school-development plan. A detailed step-by-step guideline with suggested time parameters is presented. Twenty-three figures are included. Appendices contain charts of and worksheets for the five educational and organizational models. (Contains 36 references.) (LMI)
