Organizational Structure of Effective vs. Less Effective Partnerships.
Jenkins, Deborah Bainer
Why do some educational partnerships endure while others soon meet their demise? Wright's (1994) model of group organization contrasts how different configurations are formed, solve problems, and endure in difficult contexts. When this model is applied to data gathered from group members about why their partnerships did or did not endure, it appears that enduring partnerships are often organized in a traditional Team configuration. However, partnerships organized as more diverse Packs may be more effective in troubled contexts or in difficult elementary school settings. (Contains 17 references.) (Author/MM)
