Chrispeels, Janet H.; Martin, Kathleen J.
School Effectiveness and School Improvement, v13 n3 p327-65 Sep 2002
Using dual conceptual lenses of open-systems and micropolitics, investigates how four middle-school teams engage with their colleagues to construct an identity, assume leadership roles, and situate themselves in their schools. Findings suggest that teams and educational leaders need to recognize the influence of existing organizational structures and political factors on their work. (Contains 65 references.) (Authors/PKP)
