Developing Leadership and Community To Support an EIC Program in Your School: A Self-Evaluation Guide.
Lieberman, Gerald A., Comp.; Hoody, Linda L., Comp.
This guide assists educators in the process of implementing or strengthening a using the Environment as an Integrating Context for learning (EIC) program in their school. The purpose of the self-evaluation guide is to provide teachers and principals with an instrument that they can use to assess the current status of their programs in relation to the leadership that characterizes a strong EIC program. It begins with a Summary of Leadership Processes for EIC Programs. Selection of these processes was based on research into the leadership and community support that is common to schools successfully implementing EIC. The body of the guide presents self-evaluation rubrics organized around each of the leadership processes. Each process is described on a rubric sheet that defines important terminology and explains other significant aspects of leadership and community support. The rubric sheets delineate several measurable attributes that educators can use to help determine the progress of their program. The Self-Evaluation Summary for EIC Program Leadership and Support allows educators to gather together information from the individual rubric sheets. (SAH)
