This monograph presents the "Shared Responsibility Framework of Social Interaction for Collective Investment," which offers a perspective on social interaction in the process of change. The framework attempts to integrate the dynamic features of educational reform by attending to components linked with personal and collective investment in reform initiatives. Chapters address: (1) the context that surrounds the framework and learning themes that occur throughout the monograph; (2) the six-year historical development and implementation of one service delivery effort and the challenges encountered as the grant team sought to understand and contribute to the continuing improvement at this school; (3) issues related to the question of how individual and collective investment are affected by interaction patterns and community habits; (4) a description of the Shared Responsibility Framework of Social Interaction for Collective Investment; (5) the Interactive Communication Initiative for facilitating communication and cultivating investment; and (6) strengths and caveats of the model, and suggestions on application and research of the framework. The last chapter presents a responsive series of reflection questions designed to assist readers in applying aspects of the framework in their own school contexts. Each chapter includes references.
