This guide offers Head Start staff a blueprint for developing the skills and methods necessary for a Head Start program's planning and review process. The guide stresses the need for Head Start administrative and managerial leadership to maintain a holistic, integrated approach; use the strength and resources of Head Start team members; identify the reasons for plans and decisions made by programs and identify their multiple effects; review operations and program implementation for conformity with proposed plans and regulatory requirements; and review the long-term consequences of program decisions for Head Start participants. The guide consists of four modules: (1) "Plan to Plan"; (2) "Take Stock"; (3) "Propose Directions and Adopt Plans"; and (4) "Review." Each module includes"outcomes,""key concepts," and "background information." The guide includes various formats for training: workshop activities, coaching activities, next step activities for applying the skills to individual programs, and continuing professional development activities. The final sections of the guide contain an annotated list of 19 resources that trainers and participants can use to expand their knowledge and an appendix containing worksheets that can serve as guidelines when participants apply the recommendations to their own programs.
