School Professionals' Perceptions of the Instructional Consultation Team: A Qualitative Analysis.
Costas, Lauren; Rosenfield, Sylvia; Gravois, Todd
In response to the need for a more rich description of school professionals perceptions of the Instructional Consultation Team (IC-Team) model, interviews and surveys were conducted in one urban school to explore staff members experiences with and perceived impacts of the IC-Team in their school. Several major themes were derived from the analysis of transcripts and surveys. This paper describes in detail these themes and sub-categories derived from the qualitative analysis. The themes expressed are highly encouraging as they reflect many qualities of effective schools and are consistent with the literature on the benefits and outcomes of consultation. Additionally, they support the fact that, once implemented at a high level, the IC-Team does have positive impacts upon staff members, students, and the school as a whole. Suggestions for future research are also presented, including further confirmation of themes with more schools and exploration of similarities and differences among those at differing levels of implementation of the IC-Teams models.
