Create a school environment that ensures improvement ideas are more likely to succeed by using the guidelines and strategies from this book. After the authors present the foundational principles of group decision-making in a collaborative school, they explain the functions that are key to a dynamic school that embraces change and improvement: (1) Establishing and managing effective study groups that reflect on current school practices and investigate new approaches; (2) Developing and supporting coaching relationships that foster professional development throughout the staff; (3) Designing and managing mentoring programs that maximize the talents and resources of veteran and beginning teachers; and (4) Promoting and sustaining shared leadership that focuses everyone on mutually agreed-upon goals. Learn how these functions come together to form a learning community that is committed to a continuous improvement cycle.
