Support for the Shared Leadership of Collaborative Action Teams through Training of Teams, Local Facilitators and Development of Resource Materials.
Elder, Jerry O.
Shared leadership among members of a home, school, and community partnership is an idealistic goal that sounds good in theory but can be very difficult to achieve. Based on a review of the literature on issues in collaboration and applied research conducted by the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory, this paper examines the importance of establishing a clear planning process and the training of team members to collaborate. It also addresses the role of trained, local facilitators and the importance of resource materials to support team members as they work to share the leadership and responsibilities of bringing about change in school communities.
