North Carolina Univ., Greensboro. School of Education.; SERVE: SouthEastern Regional Vision for Education.
The Leadership for Collaboration training symposium, held on October 18 and 19, 1993, was intended to provide team-building, leadership, and collaborative skills to those involved and interested in the care and education of young children in the Southeastern United States. Sponsored by the SouthEastern Regional Vision for Education (SERVE), the 2-day program included 6 workshop modules, materials which form the bulk of this participant's workbook. Module 1 introduces the program, outlines its goals, and discusses the necessity for collaboration in education. Module 2 focuses on teamwork and the steps necessary for successful collaboration, while module 3 examines teamwork at the community level, pointing out barriers to and strategies for successful collaboration. Module 4 focuses on action planning, interagency cooperation, and the development of partnership agreements, while module 5 addresses the implementation of such plans. Module 6 focuses on the development of a proactive, collaborative culture and the leveraging of the networking capacity of members. Ten appendixes provide copies of module training activities, mission statements, needs assessments, action plans, partnership agreements, and evaluations. Copies of various overhead projections used throughout the training sessions are also provided. A final section contains a work in progress entitled "Continuity in Early Childhood: Elements and Indicators of Home, School, and Community Linkages." (MDM)
