Creating New Visions for Schools. Activities for Educators, Parents, and Community Members.
Regional Laboratory for Educational Improvement of the Northeast & Islands, Andover, MA.
The activities in this booklet bring together research and practice in formats that enable communities to define and implement strategies for meeting their educational goals. The seven training activities will help teachers, administrators, school board members, parents, and community members transform their schools into places where learning is paramount and where teachers inspire students to be problem solvers, communicators, knowledgeable and productive citizens, and life-long learners. They help the school community develop a shared vision of what they want the school to be. The activities, which can be used in any order, are: (1) "A Walk through a Learning-Centered School"; (2) "Powerful Learning Experience"; (3) "Becoming a Better Learner"; (4) "Four Corners Activity" (belief clarification); (5) "The Journey"; (6) "Changes in My Community"; and (7) "Designing a Personal Portfolio." A user survey is included. (Contains eight references.) (SLD)
