Cooperating Initiatives: Supporting Behavioral and Academic Improvement through a Systems Approach
Coyne, Michael D.; Simonsen, Brandi; Faggella-Luby, Michael
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v40 n6 p54-59 Jul-Aug 2008
In this article, the authors suggest that educational initiatives that appear to have very different missions and goals can cooperate rather than compete when schools promote a comprehensive and coordinated approach to schoolwide improvement. By organizing efforts at the systems level, schools can effectively and efficiently leverage resources to ensure that multiple initiatives (e.g., academic and social-behavioral) work together to guarantee durable improvements in meaningful student outcomes. (Contains 5 figures.)
