Johnston, Marilyn A.
This book is based on a 6-year longitudinal study of collaboration in a professional development school (PDS) project involving 45 educators. Teachers and principals from the schools and faculty and doctoral students from the university work together to plan, implement, and evaluate a Master's of Education program. Part 1: "Issues and Challenges of Collaboration" includes seven chapters entitled: (1) "Keeping Differences in Tensions through Dialogue" (Marilyn Johnston and J. Michael Thomas); (2) "One Telling of Our History" (Marilyn Johnston); (3) "Our First Presentation: An Exhilarating Success and a Lingering Tension" (Marilyn Johnston with PDS Participants); (4) "Rethinking Our Roles" (Richard M. Kerper and Marilyn Johnston); (5) "African American Perspectives on Collaboration" (Daa'iyah Saleem and Cynthia Tyson); (6) "School-Based Voices and Stories" (Kathleen Ibom); and (7) "Theorizing Collaboration: Some Theoretical and Methodological Issues" (Marilyn Johnston). Brief sections entitled "Interlude with Metaphor" are located in between these chapters. Part 2: "Case Studies" includes two chapters entitled: (8) "The Beginnings of Collaboration at Second Avenue Elementary" (Reba Bricher, Mary Christenson, Marilyn Hawk, and Jean Tingley, with Brenda Ambrose, Amy Campbell, Lisa Cline, and Bill Lohr); and (9) "A Case Study of Collaboration at Worthington Estates Elementary" (Tom Adams, Rosario Galarza, Kathy Nalle, and Lisa Westhoven, with Kathy Barkhurst, Kathy Davenport, and Sue Knuebel.
