Collaboration: A Model for Design, Management and Evaluation.
Schlessman-Frost, Amy; Saunders, T. Frank
This paper offers a theoretical model for designing, managing, and evaluating collaboration efforts. The parallel-pairs model is composed of a horizontal axis that specifies the scope and significance of activities. An advantage of the model is its ability to evaluate activities individually or as a group. Two examples of how the model was used in interagency collaboration--at Owsley County Elementary School, Kentucky, and Albuquerque's PACCT (Parents, Children, Community Together) for Literacy--are presented. A conclusion is that a comprehensive collaboration model can provide a framework for articulating policies and purposes, designs and developments, activities, and accountability of collaboration arrangements. Three figures are included. (Contains 20 references.) (LMI)
