Asking the Right Questions: Tools and Techniques for Teamwork.
Holcomb, Edie L.
Most people would agree that schools should strive to increase their effectiveness. This handbook provides leaders and facilitators of the school-improvement process with practical information and guidelines for conducting the day-to-day work of school change and improvement. The book is organized around five questions that represent stages of the school-improvement process: (1) Where are we now? (2) Where do we want to go? (3) How will we get there? (4) How will we know we are (getting) there? and (5) How will we sustain the focus and momentum? The book identifies the tools most relevant to carry out each phase. It offers examples of practice at the school and district levels, and a matrix that synthesizes the five phases and relevant tools. Twelve figures and an annotated bibliography of 17 sources are included. (LMI)
