Educators Supporting Educators: A Guide to Organizing School Support Teams.
Ginsberg, Margery B.; Johnson, Joseph F., Jr.; Moffett, Ceryelle A.
This book is a resource for educators in any setting who are trying to implement school support teams. New legislation requires states to establish systems of intensive and sustained support for schools that receive Title I funds. School support teams are to become the primary component of these systems. These support teams, external groups of teachers, pupil services personnel, and other people with expertise in school reform, will help high-poverty schools as they plan and develop their schoolwide programs. Chapter 1 provides an overview of the schoolwide approach to change and the role of school support teams. A case study, drawing on experience in 20 education service centers in Texas, illustrates the process in one school. Chapter 2 provides suggestions on how to organize school support teams and how to select members. In Chapter 3, there is detailed information on how to design professional development and training programs for school support team members. Sample agendas for professional development programs are presented. Chapter 4 provides additional clarification for questions educators might have about school support teams. Seventeen appendixes contain information about the law, sample training materials, transparency masters, organizational forms, and examples of instruments and procedures. (Contains 2 figures and 43 references.) (SLD)
