The World of Wonder Accelerated Learning Community: A Case Study.
Biddle, Julie K.
This report presents a case study of the World of Wonders Accelerated Learning Community School (WOW). A community school in Ohio is a new kind of public school-an independent public school that is nonsectarian and nondiscriminatory. The report presents three contexts for the study--historical, local and methodological--and highlights some of the lessons being learned as a group of public, urban educators reinvent their work and themselves. Finally, it discusses the educational importance of this work and suggests implications for professional development trainers and school personnel involved in continuous school improvement, with special attention to those in the Accelerated Schools Project. Goals for WOW are similar to training goals for other schools. Participants are expected to become familiar with the Accelerated School philosophy and process and have a greater understanding of the personal, social and cultural issues surrounding school improvement. The goal is that participants gain a better understanding of the dynamic of both personal and school change and become leaders in moving their school through the Accelerated School process. (DFR)
