Leading Schools to Quality. [Videotape and Discussion Guide].
National Educational Service, Bloomington, IN.
This videotape and discussion guide offer a workshop plan that draws on an elementary school's innovative and successful application of Dr. Edwards Deming's Quality Principles. Designed to introduce teachers, administrators, school-board members, parents, and community and government leaders to quality assurance, the videotape uses on-site footage of classrooms in action, as well as interviews with teachers, parents, the principal, students, and Edwards Deming to show how schools can build understanding and consensus on key quality principles. The workshop plan includes a general overview of the topic, and it provides outcomes so that the facilitator and viewers share a common understanding of the workshop's purpose. A focusing activity opens the workshop to prepare participants for the topics that will be covered. The discussion guide that accompanies the videotape offers the facilitator a thematic overview for each session, handouts for participants, discussion questions, follow-up activities, a bibliography of additional readings, and titles of supplementary materials. The workshop plan suggests questions and encourages participants to review and revise the opinions they held before the workshop. Follow-up activities help participants review the ideas presented and provide attendees with an opportunity to consider and implement options for applying what has been learned. (RJM)
